Family Trip pt. 1

Hi everyone!

How are you all? ♥

Today's post is a little bit longer than you're used to here in this blog, but I hope that's okay. This is more of a "day with me" post than an outfit post or so, and it has a lot more pics in it than a regular post. Just a warning, haha.

And, before going to the subject, remember to leave your questions as you now have the chance to Ask Me Anything (click the link!). You have until the end of this month, and the other rules are in the post itself. Thanks!

Okay, to the current post. As I may have mentioned, in the beginning of June we went to see my just graduated cousin and his mom, my godmother and had coffee with them. I hadn't met either in years, so it was very fun to catch up with both of them.

And of course, I loved to see their newest family member, this little furry girl here. She's such a heart breaker! ♥ She tried to eat the bows on my shoes like a hundred times or so, but I didn't have the heart to get mad about it - I mean, see how cute she is?

My handsome cousin, the doggie... and my fiance's hand. The usual. I can't believe his an adult already, as he is four years younger, I keep thinking he's a little boy. The truth is, I'm just getting old, haha.

Giving my best pose. And my mom is trolling. Also, the usual stuff. My family is a bit weird like that. ;)

Seriously, if the dog had stayed like this the whole time, I'd have about ten thousand shots of her. But instead, she ran around the yard chasing birds, butterflies and anything flying, so it was impossible to take really good photos of her.

After the coffee - that lasted for hours since we had so much to talk about - me, my fiance and my parents jumped into a car and drove to the hotel we spend the night in. The place was called Petäys Resort, and it is located by a lake and it's surrounded by trees and nature. Very peaceful location to spend a night - or a week - in.

Me and my fiance were having of course our own room, and we really enjoyed that. The room was cozy but neat, roomy and filled with daylight, so it was the perfect place to stay in for one night.

We had separate beds, but for one night, that was quite okay. We actually had bigger room than my parents, which seemed funny as they paid for the stay, but I'm not complaining. :D

View from our room. Gotta love Finnish nature in summer! So green and fresh.

The bathroom was nice, too. You know, because you're all dying to know.

Just kidding.

After settling down in ours rooms, all four of us headed downstairs to see what the hotel had to offer. We decided to try out the miniature golf course on the yard. None of us had played for a while, so we had no idea if any of us remembered how to hit the ball.

It wasn't hard, after all. I kinda sucked, but it's okay, I can handle losing in any games that require any hand-eye coordination. In that case, I'm such a girl. Or nerd. Whichever you prefer.

Happy golfer.

The hotel building looked like this. Kinda like a lodge, or cabin or something. I really liked it, it was very comfy.

After golfing, we headed inside to eat and have few drinks.

The hotel had different places where you could eat, but we chose to eat in the main restaurant located in the main building. The view was to the lake, and look how amazing the light was outside!

...and dining. The food was absolutely delicious! It was amazing to enjoy good food with my loved ones, that's always something that I truly appreciate and feel thankful for. ♥

Afterwards, we took a walk outside, checking out the lake, and getting some fresh air before going to bed.

Probably the best vacation-like photo you'll see in this blog for a while, haha.

Amazing light of the summery sunset.

Closer look of my shoes. Luv 'em! ♥

In the lobby, there was a pool table. You could play it for free. If there's something that I find hard to resist, are things that are free. Free food, free entrance, free round (or five) of pool. So of course, me and my fiance had to have a go on this.

What a concentration, on both of us. :'D Oh well. Anyway, we played few rounds, had a drink or two, and headed upstairs to sleep. This was the point I swore I need to save up some money to really go on an exciting trip sometimes, it would be fun to show you something not so common, but oh well. Life is mostly just... life. Nothing that amazing.

But all in all, we enjoyed our time there. In the next post, I will show you more around the hotel and the yard, as I got to take photos in a daylight. So, stay tuned!

Have a lovely day! ♥

Blog ya later,

xoxo
