Inspirational illustration: Leigh Viner

Helsinki, 12 degrees


We sat side by side in the morning light and looked out at the future together.

I've spent this wonderfully sunny, but windy Sunday, with my beloved one. I love days like this when one can truly enjoy each other's company and relax. We also visited my boyfriend's mother in the city from where my boyfriend comes from, Sipoo, so one could say we even made a short road trip seeing as it's about 40 minutes from where we currently live in Helsinki.

I found these amazing drawings by Leigh Viner on Etsy and thought I would share them with you to kick off the week with some thinking. I think one cannot look at these drawings without getting lost in thoughts. I think they're so pretty that I might even print one out and put it in a frame on the wall.


There is only one happiness in life: to love and be loved.

  4. oh, this is such a lovely post. road trips (and other trips) are my favourites and I love discovering new places. though my weekend didn't include any road trips since we're in the middle of our dining and living room overhaul right now. and my wardrobe needs to be cleaned and assorted.
    anyway, I also wanted to say those art pieces you've shared are really beautiful and special. definitely worth putting on a fall!

  6. Todella kauniita piirroksia :) Niissä on hieman samaa tyyliä kuin eräässä jonka löysin itseasiassa youtube-videon kautta. Agnes Cecile :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=golBymjXor4&
    Ja taustalla aika kaunis biisikin! ^^

    Ihana nähdä yhteiskuva teistä! ^^
    Toivottavasti viikko on lähtenyt mukavasti käyntiin.

    1. Kiitos Satu! Hieno video, siis miten joku voi piirtää noin hyvin?? Löysin Agnes Cecilen Deviantart-sivustolla kanssa, upeita piirroksia!
      Kiva kun tykkäsit meidän kuvasta, laitan niitä aina välillä :)
      Viikko on lähtenyt mukavasti käytiin nyt kun olen päässyt flunssasta eroon! Toivottavasti sunkin viikko on sujunut toistaiseksi hyvin.
