Mini trip

Yesterday while the kids were in the pool at Snäckevarp, Gryt’s skärgård…


… I was cold dressed like this! Today has been warmer. Finally!


Oliver, my dad and uncle Curt are having fun :) It’s my aunt Gunilla and uncle Curt that lives here and it’s always so wonderful to be here and get spoiled with favorite food (kolpudding) and fika!


On our way home we made a stop in Valdemarsvik. We enjoyed a walk at the harbor and ate Swedish strawberries on top of my new lockers, that I bought from my aunt’s neighbor!


Tonight’s sunset. Magic!!

My temporary lounge


After the kids were in bed tonight I enjoyed some me time right here! Well needed after a weekend with full house!

On the shopping list for our living room -sofa and tv. But for right now I took what we had and made it to a lounge area. The rug, table and the chair to the right belong to the guest house. The grey chair to the right used to be my grandma’s, so that piece feels extra special to me. With some paint and new fabric it looks like new! The two ones to the left are from Newport, that I ordered last summer… and now when unpacked them I realized they’ve sent one in wrong color… another dark grey is on the way!

I’m so in love with this house. Can’t wait until everything is done though!! Waiting is not my thing… hehe… I’ve to show you the exterior soon, then you’ll understand what I’m talking about!

The bed is calling. Wait. Eddie-Bo’s bed is calling. Nope, we still don’t have a big one for me and hubby :) Our to do list is looooong!

Midsummer 2017

Yep, that was Midsummer, very traditional with herring lunch, celebration, games and an amazing dinner, and lots of fun friends!!

Hello, long time no see!!! Puh… what a week… (and with no internet, say what!!!). Just being home with the boys is a full time job :) Plus we moved out from the guesthouse and in to the main house. I wonder how many times I’ve been walking between the houses (workout of the week for sure!), I’ve been running a tons of errands, and lots of shopping that needed to get done before the party. We had almost nothing in the kitchen… and I have to admit I was close to cancel, I just felt there is no way we’ll get ready to host a party for 32 guests in this house that is still under construction. But we decided to be here, because Eddie-Bo had soccer school close to here, for a few hours Mon-Thursday. And in the end we made it and had so much fun!!

Spa day with these babes

What a day!! Emelie and Glitzy, I love you!! I also love my husband for surprising me, and set up this day for us at the spa, followed by delicious dinner and a suite at “Storan” in Linköping. He thought I deserved a break (after what he said) being both mom and dad for the last couple of seasons. I just hope and wish he’ll be healthy soon!! Thank you, I love you babe!!

Summer feelings

This place is special to me. It’s our very first house that we built about ten year ago. (You only see the guesthouse in the picture). The last days I’ve been gardening a lot, which I love. It’s so green and beautiful, love this time of the year.

Yesterday I brought the kids to their cousin August’s last day of school (skolavslutning!) for 1st-6th grade, it was in a church and they were all singing so good. It brought back sweet memories from my childhood. That feeling on that day, knowing you had the whole summer off, was the best!!




Beautiful evening

Eddie-Bo and hubby decided to go camping tonight on an island. Oliver and I joined for a boat ride. Love being on the lake, camping not so much :)

Earlier today we went to aunt Hanna and Sven! The boys were excited to play with their cousins, plus they have a basement. Two things Eddie-Bo said yesterday he misses! Cousins, basement and camping, what a day!

Now Netflix time, ‘Orange is the new black’ it is!
