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!!

My text conversation with my brother’s girlfriend Lina (that I love) -Long time no see (4days ago…), how are you? Me-good! Full house, Joakim, Lisa, Monster and Emelie and all the kids, mom and Melker and Pirri were here today. Lina-Tomorrow? Me- Will have fika with grandma, Hasse and Bea with family in the morning, plus Jörgen and Kirre are sleeping here tonight, then into town to run some errands, then meet up with Mia and Gustav, nothing planned for the evening, so come over! Lina- Omg your schedule guys!!! We will come, and Victor wants to start planning the deck for the guesthouse! Me-Perfect!!

Yep that’s our summer schedule almost every day, haha. But we love it and we want to catch up with everyone!

Me, Lisa and Emelie, ok, not the best picture of us, but we are the best combo!!

 

I’m so lucky to have so many amazing friends!!! Two of them, Lisa and Emelie, oh my, love them so much. The two years they lived in Detroit, we pretty much hung out all the time, like one big happy family! They came into my life when I was pregnant with Oliver, and the last three months of the pregnancy I couldn’t walk at all, because of awful back pain (I broke my sacrum, sciatica nerv, two herniated discs plus hip and pelvic pain…) and Eddie-Bo was only 2 years old. Lisa and Emelie came over every day to help me with cooking food, grocery shopping and to play with Eddie-Bo and keep me happy and sane! Forever thankful for that!!

Jonas the “Monster” just signed for Linköping HC, the hockeyteam in my hometown. And Joakim is playing for Örebro, not too far away from us. I’m so happy we are close on the map again!!

When everyone left after a fun day, we played some ‘Fia med knuff’. Cousin Melker is having a sleepover here tonight, so cosy. Cousin love!!

It’s 1 in the middle of the night… Terrible jetlag and now full moon, wtf…haha… plus I’m waiting for my older brother to call me. I gonna pick them up from a wedding close by. Sleep will happen another time!

I have so much to show you from the house, but I’ve been too busy. Hopefully I get some pictures taken tomorrow.

Yesterday was a slow day, but today I’m back on track. We started the morning with a bike ride to the farmers market and than to a birthday party in Booth park. Now we are on our way to Harsen Island to keep celebrate cute Beau that is turning 3!! Never been to Harsen Island, so I’m excited and it will be perfect to spend a few hours at the beach with amazing friends. And the weather is great!

It’s Friday night and I’ve been having a slow day. Me and the kids went to the gym. I dropped off the kids at their Kids club, they love being there. My plan to do a work out turned in to a 90 minute massage instead at the spa. J had a cancellation so I guess that it was meant to be. I always go to J or Mark, both are great! It was well needed and I felt I was worth that.
After the gym we spent a few hours by our pool with some friends.

More pictures from Sweden will come. I feel that the blog didn’t get so much love during the summer as I planned. Also I didn’t get as much done as I planned either. Well well…

Have a great weekend!
