Swedish summer

What happened?! It’s been over a month since I got back to London after my lovely holiday in Sweden and it’s been NON-STOP, until now. I finally feel like I can breathe a little now. In this past month I’ve had a cold for three weeks (sigh), moved house and been really busy with work.

So sorry for the delay in sharing this post with you; the first little glimpse of my lovely two and a bit weeks in Sweden in August. I have lots more to share with you so STAY TUNED!

My time at home was mainly spent in Skåne, in the South, where I’m from, in my parents’ summer house. But I met up with friends, had people over for lunch and dinners, went to the opera, and the beach, went to Copenhagen for a day, had as much ice cream as I could and indulged in all the things I miss when I’m in London.

Like Swedish pizza, a real guilty pleasure of mine. It’s greasy, messy and wonderful the two times per year when I eat it.

As usual there was lots of seafood too, and champagne and burgers on the barbecue. And strawberries, which is unusual for August but so yummy!

Some evenings we took a nice long stroll along the beach, taking in the wonderful nature.

Thanks for a lovely break, Sweden!

A weekend at home

Christopher and I are going to Sweden tonight, to the southern part, for a long weekend. Monday is a bank holiday here, so we get an extra day without taking a day off. 🙂 The reason we’re going home is because our friends Maria and Daniel (who came to visit a couple of months ago) are getting married tomorrow. Congratulations to them!

Apart from the wedding celebrations, I look forward to giving my parents a big hug, hang out with my best friend and her fiancée and just chill out, enjoy the food I miss, and go for a walk around the woods where I grew up.

Have a wonderful weekend guys!
