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!!

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!

After a week of full blown interior design mode at our renovation house, we decided to go to our Småland house where everything is already the way we want it, so nice! But I’m trying to make this place more low maintenance for the future… so some pieces like the lounge seating above (from danish CaneLine, 10 years old and I still love them!!) will be moved to our other house. Instead I want something lighter and easier to move around for this space!

This is my favorite spot in our summer house in Småland! The kids are now in bed, hubby is watching football, Americans call it soccer :) and I finally have time to sit down and relax with some magazines and a glass of white wine (and blogging!).

And two minutes later… really?!! The kids were almost ready for bed (I thought!!) were watching Pippi Långstrump when I was cleaning up and took some blog pictures… then they showed up like a storm. Blog vs Reality!! Haha!

Soon- sauna time!

This is where we’ve spent most of our summers for the last ten years. And I’m looking forward to another amazing summer with family and friends and hopefully great weather. To be honest, you never know with Sweden… but when it’s good, it’s sooooo good!

I’m thinking of renting out this place for a couple of weeks. Is airbnb the way to go, or what?! Need to look into the options. We’ll still spend time here but we’ll also be at our new place outside Linköping, that will be magical when the renovation is done! An update on that will come another day.

Now time for me and Oliver to go outside and play in this beautiful spring weather.

I’m super happy how the guesthouse turned out. I first had another layout for the kitchen, but my contractor thought we should save some $$ here, so we decided to keep stove and sink at the same place as before. The kitchen is still not 100% done though. I need to buy two bar stools and a shelf or two, to install between the windows. The knobs are finally up but I don’t have any picture of that. Dear Lina “my assistant” (my brother’s girlfriend) please send me pictures :) I also know the painter came right after we left to finish up.
