MODELLING

My very first "modelling job"!
I got this picture from my parents last autumn when I turned 30. I'm three and a half in it; posing with my mom and dad for a ship's ad brochure from 1985. My father is a naval architect and was planning the ship and they decided to get away easy and use him+family for the ad as well. Haha, he was my age then, or even a tiny little bit younger than I am now.

It's always funny remembering something of when your parents were younger than yourself. Or, thinking of. Couldn't really say I remember this occasion, even though I have some memories from being around two or three. Like sitting on the potty and mom telling me my grandparents would come pick me up for the circus in an hour and a half and I thought that an hour and a half would be such a long long long time. Or me just receiving a pear ice cream scoop with mom and grandmother in Tapiola when mom's water broke; she was pregnant with the older of my two younger sisters. And I have this feeling I had to leave the ice cream behind. Although I am not sure that was really the case. But I remember when we went to visit her at the hospital we had Pätkis chocolate bars with us (or was it Da Capos?), she was wearing a green dress and watching Dallas on TV.

Oh, it was really fascinating and nice to read about your past, about your memories! I like you so much that's why I find everything interesting, what regards you. I'm glad that you write such a things! For me there is still not enough :)

Am I right, that you add less outfit posts and other photos of you than you used to? I think so... Is it due to pregnancy? Maybe you have less time or willingness to do it. Of course is your choice and I don't want to force you to do anything. I'm just wondering:)

Best wishes :*

Maja : Haha, well, of course in some sort of mommy mood bt to be honest for the moment I am just obsessed with wallpapers and wanting to renovate the country house, I almost feel bad not being interested in any baby clothes or so...

Ramonies : well, i actually feel I have been posting MORE outfits than lately! I think during the past year I've only posted about a couple per month or so and now I think I've had quite many. Or it feels that way at least :) What few people get the way it actually is, is that I really work A LOT, my regular work plus burlesque and design, so I have lots of posts and photos waiting but not the time to post them...

Are you a brunette? Am I allowed to (lovingly) tease you about your haircut at 3-years-old? I had a similarly bad one. I had a fringe that started REALLY far back on my head. :D

So cute! I understand what you mean about wanting to sort out your house. Nesting must be setting in already! x

Miss Tallulah POorkchop : yes, the haircolour I have now is my own. Some sort of brownish. And yup, an 80's potty-fringe :D My hair was otherwise quite long at that point already, but it does not show in the pic...

Lucy Nation : hmmm, I think it's just more vanity than nesting in this case :D

It's still a lovely memory to have, the picture, even if you don't remember the situation itself.
