Sniff sniff


A perfume is always a good idea. And that’s what I got for my hubby the other day. Tom Ford- Oud Wood, is a long time favorite, oh it smells so good!! I think Oliver and I was at the mall for five minutes, we used the valet at Neiman Marcus. Gotta love valet, no we don’t have that in Sweden. (Valet är en parkerings-service, man lämnar bilen precis utanför dörren, bästa!) So speed shopping as it’s best!

Now I’m heading to Ikea!

Homemade fast food


Tonight’s fast-food served on my favorite plate from West Elm- Scrambled eggs (only eggs coconut oil and salt) with burrata cheese and homegrown tomatoes (that I got from a neighbor the other day, best tomatoes evaaa! Goals for the future). On top of that a good olive oil, flake salt and fresh black peppar. We can also pretend there is some basil or arugula. Simple and delicious!

You’ll find some pictures from last night on my Instagram @cissifranzen. It’s amazing to see how Detroit has changed over the last years!

My boys


My cute boys last night, tired after a day full of play. Another week to go before school starts and back to all routines. Eddie-Bo and Oliver are my happy pills and I love them so much and I’m so thankful I get to spent so much time with them. They are most of the time super sweet, funny and easy to deal with.

Today is a good day again. As I said the other day, life with my husband fighting PCS and depression is not easy.  It’s up and down worse than a roller coaster, from happy and normal, to cranky and angry, to sad and crying… I don’t mention that a lot in the blog, but today I am, with hubby’s permission. I just wish he will fully recover soon.
