Mini vacay

A lovely 24h mini vacay with my girls Challe and Glitzy at Steam Hotel in Västerås, Sweden. What an amazing hotel, perfect for an interior design nerd like me. More pictures to come, I’m sitting in the car right now on the way back home.

Moving into our bedroom

It’s finally time to spend the first night in our bedroom suite!

The temperature now at 11.30pm has finally come down a bit, so a good night sleep is hopefully waiting. But first an episode of Peaky Blinders. I’m starting to get hooked :)

This week has been really social with lots of family and friends over, plus our amazing Lisa is here. Love it!

I hope you all are enjoying your summer. See ya.

Yesterday’s roadtrip


Le chauffeur Jörgen.


Photo stop!


View over Lindos.


And that’s where we spent most of the day.






Lots of people in the afternoon, but it was still not loud or crazy.


After Lindos Jörgen took us to Rhodes town, we passed tons of olive trees and mountain goats.


We walked around in Old Town, very cozy and it’s surrounded by a big stone wall.


We ate ice cream.


And I bought new handmade leather sandals. Good to have a greek with me – helping dealing about the price while I was just smiling :)


Not a single group photo so far, but here is part of the gang.


Smile for dinner time at Medousa, a real greek place where Jörgen and Kirre have been to before. And that was also our last stop before we went back to the hotel.


I can’t get enough of greek food!!


Lindos beach

Today we went on a nice road trip. We spent most of the day at this beach in Lindos. I brought my big camera but without battery of course, gaaaa not the first time… But I took lots of pictures with my phone, will post more tomorrow!

Magical evenings


Our view from the house is so magical and the evenings are so peaceful.

The past days I’ve have been busy with lovely friends and packing up and getting ready for our trip to Greece!!! We are leaving tomorrow and I’m so excited. It’s just a 3h flight from Sweden, so easy peasy. Last time we went to Greece I came home with a ring on my finger – that was ten years ago!

I’ve some friends that will stay in our house while we are gone and some workers will be here as well. And earlier I FaceTimed with babysitter Lisa that had a great time by our pool in Usa! So our houses stay busy as usual :)


This is where we stayed on our Stockholm trip – Haymarket! Loved it and I feel that I need to share some photos!! I always gets so inspired when Im staying at nice hotels.

Cool, huh?!

I just have to say Sweden is really delivering an amazing summer (so far!). It’s sunny and hot and I enjoy every second of it! I’m at the moment watching the sunset on our patio, and it’s lovely!!

Also, I have so much to show you from our house, hopefully I get some time to take photos tomorrow.

And finally. Happy 4th of July to all Americans!

Sweden won!!!!


GO SWEDEN!!!!! We won the game and are now ready for the quarterfinal, so cool! We were lucky and got invited to a suite in Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, thanks Pirre!!


It was a loud and happy crowd and it was sold out. We Swedes really love our football, some people call it soccer :)


Sports crazy Eddie-Bo is taking it all in.


Cousin love!! It was thanks to baby Allan we ended up in Stockholm this time, his parents had Eminem tickets, so he needed to hang with someone during the concert!

Now we are back home from our short (2,5 days) but sweet Stockholm trip! More pictures to come tomorrow.


About yesterday


My God daughter Stella and Glitzy came by to enjoy (us) and the beautiful weather!


In a few days we’ll have a cement stair  ↑ woop woop.


We played in the boat :)


Hello there ♥



The best ♥♥


After a fun day at home it was time for us to enjoy a Xmas gift from my brother Jörgen and Kirre – dinner and concert, right up our alley :) We ate at Hey Lucy in Linköping. Love Asien fusion food. Btw, this was all my food, hehe… the waitress told us it was small portions, I don’t agree but it was delicious!


And then it was time for Lasse Winnerbäck!!! He’s so good and he’s from our hometown Linköping, so that makes it extra special to see him live right here.

What a great day and a great gift!!

Right now

Live from the house! This add on, don’t know what to call it, was a balcony before.

And under here is a circled hole, where our custom made spiral staircase is gonna be!

I can’t believe the weather, it’s so hot! People often ask me about the Swedish weather. And I always say -you just never now! Like now it’s 30c/80f (not humid), and that’s really hot and not “normal”. But some summers can be way too cold and rainy… so when we pack up for the summer it’s a mix of summer clothes, rain gear and fleece jackets :) You always need to be prepared!

Midsummer 2018

Worst blog week ever?! :) Anyhow, here comes a picture rain from Midsummer, one of Sweden’s biggest holidays! Normally we host a big big party, but this year we took a break, since we came home to Sweden so late. Instead we went home to our friends Pattis and Darling (we all call him Darling!).

Family car selfie. Oliver’s face hehe!!
Glitzy is taking photos of…
…me who is taking a photo of the lunch :)
Tadaa!! Lots of herring and a salmon cheesecake


Cute Stella in a traditional flower crown
Happy after a tractor ride :) Love this photo 🖤
Silly dance around the pole :) 
Back at the house again it was time for strawberry cake
My adorable God daughter Stella in my headband!

And after this I stopped taking photos. But we played games and ate a delicious dinner! It was a very calm (for once, haha) but fun Midsummer. Always good to catch up with our lovely friends!!

Omg!! I’m blogging from my phone and I don’t have WiFi… I’m ripping my hair soon… photos are disappearing, changes size and the text jumps around…. need to fix this ASAP!!
