happy birthday to both of them!
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥these could possibly be my favourite photographs of my dad and Jacopo: the 1st one shows my dad as a boy at school, the 2nd one my dad in his late teens - he always looked so smart, the 3rd one Jacopo as a boy in Oulu - posing next to a very impressive sculpture and the 4th one Jacopo with his first racing bike Bianchi two summers ago in Kruununhaka. the 4th photo is the only one I can take credit for - but I love the first three especially and I wonder who took them: to me old photographs are always the most inspiring and the most precious of all!
P.S. for Jacopo's birthday we held a wonderful house party last friday and tonight I will call my dad on Skype while he opens my birthday letter.
