Lots of marble


There is so much I love about our American home. This marble fireplace is one of my favorites. It’s a real statement piece in our master suite, that divides the sitting area from the bedroom area. I also love how it matches the marble we have in our master bathroom, kitchen and butlers pantry. It puts it together if you know what I mean!

Oh my. I’m so tired. Last night was great and it got pretty late. And today has been a busy day with hockey and skiing. I took the boys all by myself skiing, just about 40 minutes away from home. Puh, lots of work but we had so much fun. No meltdowns, high five! They did great and I’m so proud of them. You never know, next time might be different :)

Now→ bed and an episode of Vikings!

No lazy Sunday


My neighbor gave me these gorgeous peonies the other day. Thank you!! It’s one of my favorite flower. I have white peonies in the garden, but they are just about to bloom, hopefully before we leave…

The kids are playing, hubby is organizing the garage and I’ve been cleaning for a bit and now I’m gonna do some laundry and start to pack up some bags for our Sweden trip. No time for a lazy Sunday :)

Hope you are having a great day!

 Hello Monday!


The master bath is one of my favorite rooms in the house. Love all the carrera marble mixed with the grey cabinets. Wouldn’t change a thing if I could.  And it’s been almost four years since I made all decisions.




Today I have been working on the Darlington St. renovation, running some errands and cleaning our Master bathroom. My cleaning ladies just stopped working for us, and man, I miss them. They cleaned like crazy (I mean they brought knee pads). I always told them to not go bananas every time, but that’s how neat they were. They also became my friends, since they’ve been working for us for about seven years… So anyone in the Birmingham area, I need a new cleaning company!!  They stopped working here since they decided to work less hours. No hard feelings, they had a long drive to get here and the house is big. It will be hard finding anyone that good and that you can trust right away.

Now I’ll have to cool down in the pool. It’s crazy hot, 91F/33C. Love it though! And thank God for A/C in the house :)
