Essi lives in Tampere, Finland and studies biology in Oulu. She sent this pretty snowy scene of birch trees. We have many birch here were I live, however sadly many were lost in the major ice storm we had last winter. She shared with me one the the greatest quotes I've heard in awhile "It's funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different." This comes from C.S. Lewis. Some days you need to read something like this to refocus your perspective. Thanks Essi!
