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 :)

Haymarket

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!

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

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.

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…

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!!

Passport issues

1G6A7324.jpg

Passports, and a new nice computer case from Target.

Hello from Sweden! We made it after some issues… Oh my, for you who have seen my Instastory from Monday knows what happened. All my bragging in my last post about being all done with no stress and that I’ve learned from thirteen years of traveling between The States and Sweden… bla bla bla. But we all know that THE ONLY thing you really need when you travel is valid passport. And nope, we didn’t have that, Oliver’s was EXPIRED by a week, they told us at the airport!! So Johan and Eddie-Bo flew home as planned and Oliver and I ended up staying, I mean we had no choice… and got a new passport done the next day in Downtown Detroit, and we made it back to Sweden arriving Tuesday instead on Monday! Puh…

And then it took me a few days to find my Swedish cellphone… and Johan’s didn’t work… and no internet. But now all that is fixed!

Birthday prep

I can’t believe Oliver is turning FIVE years old tomorrow Sunday! I had planned for a pool birthday party today, but the weather has been terrible with rain and thunderstorm so I had to cancel that. Now I’m hoping to wake up to a more beautiful day! Anyhow I’m so excited to celebrate our wonderful, funny Oliver!!
