My Mini Me

Post in collaboration with Zalando// Postaus kaupallisessa yhteistyössä Zalandon kanssa

It might not be huge for human kind, but this post I’m about to write is a bigger deal for me than I thought. Every time I let my thoughts wonder and reflect over motherhood and my kids, I get emotional and sentimental. It’s like I go back in time and see their growth in fast forward and realize how borrowed this time is before they grow up and move on. I already hear myself telling them “you’re 2 and 4 years old once, don’t hurry to the next age too fast.”

As you know I’ve decided not to feature my children here on the blog or in any other of my social media channels. I don’t have any specific motives not to expose them, but since I was unsure of why I should, I decided to listen to my gut and keep them privat along with the rest of my family and friends. However, motherhood is such a big part of my life and changed me for good – as parenthood always does.

Mother’s Day is coming up and although I’m extremely grateful towards my own mum I can’t help myself from celebrating my own motherhood and everything it has given me.

This post is dedicated to my first born, my daughter, my little princess. When she entered my life, she added color to my world I never knew existed and changed life as I knew it. She has given me purpose and meaning and taught me lots of new things about life. She took away selfishness in a blink of an eye. She was the answer to  most of the things I was lacking answers for.

Today she’s 4 years old and I’m so grateful for the moments and memories we have together so far. She has become her own little individual, yet she reminds me so much of myself. She is my soul mate and my greatest teacher.

Todays shooting for Zalando was extremely anticipated as all the one on one moments with her are. We planned and talked about our day together all weekend and I picked her up from daycare early. Then we did what we like to do the most: indulge in sweets, talk, giggle and cuddle. My Mini Me and I.

Zalando has a beautiful and wide selection of children’s clothes and shoes. We ordered our mommy-daughter outfits here and here to make this day even more special and memorable.

Get straight to Greta’s dress here, my dress here and shoes here!
