precious things.

yesterday was the day of the presentation of my master thesis: everything went very well and most of all I was happy because all of my dearest friends in Helsinki were there to support me - Jacopo even took some time off work for the occasion.
♥ from Myriam, Essi and Kasia:
these beautiful hand made envelopes were part of a surprise that my best of friends have prepared for me: they were arranged in a pretty ribboned basket - each of them full of delicious sweets.
♥ from Vanessa:
a wonderfully decorated letter from my dear friend Vanessa arrived from Italy - just on time for such a special occasion.
♥ from Jacopo:
at home Jacopo had prepared some lovely surprises too: a magnificent Fazer Joulukalenteri and a delicious italian panettone with figs were waiting for me on the kitchen table - Christmas really came early for me on such a special day!
