ANOTHER FLAG DAY HERE IN FINLAND!!
A TEMPLE WEDDING
ANOTHER BOOKMARK DELIVERED!
As you know by now......we only fly the Finnish Flag on what is called 'FLAG DAY'! Don't know why...that is just the way it is done. SO....when you see the flag a-firling you know it is an 'important' day. This particular flag day was to honor 'Snellman Päivä'. He was a great mover of Finnish freedom in the mid 1800's. Good for him.....he gets his own holiday.
And it was a gorgeous day with no clouds and a light breeze....just enough to unfurl the flag!
Liisa Hylli....what a great lady! She is so talented with sewing!! She repaired a Suit Coat for Wayne.....he got 'caught' on a sign in the parking lot and it ripped. She would not take any money for the repair job so I made her a cross stitch bookmark and gave her a 'temple pin'! She was thrilled and very pleased.
SAMARA week this week.....so many wonderful people that we recognize from last year (is it possible that we really have been here that long already!). And it was a beautiful day for a wedding......
YEA for this beautiful couple. They were so very happy and so in love.
A beautiful BRIDE with her two sisters. Perfect..........
