After skipping one time last week, I'm again posting my favorite five things from the past week. As mentioned before, this marvelous idea is from Lauren @ From My Grey Desk and I'm linking up with her.
This annual Christian summer fest held last weekend is a summer tradition for us. A long-standing for my husband, and I've attended since 2006 with one exception. Evankeliumijuhla is Finnish and means Gospel fest. It's always wonderful to get together with thousands of people to listen to the word of God and meet up with friends. This year we were in Turku.
2. A visit from a dear friend

I used the American Independence Day as a reason to go on at least one picnic this summer. I was so excited to wear red, white and blue for the occasion! The day turned out wonderful and I am really thinking about turning it into a tradition :)

5. Local landscape
Originally from Northern Ostrobothnia region, hills used to be a rare sight. Now living in Pirkanmaa, I take pleasure in visiting some of these landscape viewing towers in this area. Having that friend over also encouraged us to take her to a couple of them. It was wonderful standing up there marveling over God's creation.
