I co-plant tulip bulbs and fall asleep for a while in the late summer sun

A late summer weekend in early September offered sun that caressed the neck and aroused the desire to plan for spring. The perfect garden weather was offered and I enjoyed as much as you can when everything is ripe and time passes slowly. Or at least I imagine that time passes slowly. Do not want to rush, want to enjoy and let the garden get drunk. Today I planted the first tulip bulbs and narcissuses .. I have one…

Back in town and ready for fall

Everyday life is here again and it feels more than completely okay. We had a proper and long-awaited holiday even though I had not even dared to hope for it. But as is often the case when expectations are low, it will be really good. We came to our home in Spain against all odds and we have enjoyed like never before. Or appreciated may be better words. This much has…

Buy a new mobile or not?

In collaboration with Swappie In connection with Earth Day falling this month, I thought I would change and improve some habits a little more. Among other things, I have acquired two Bokashi buckets so I create soil instead of waste. I have planted a lot of vegetables so we can eat super locally grown. I have fixed things that were broken instead of throwing and buying new. I have started …

Terrace dreams

This year I am incredibly expectant for the terrace season. More than any other year. Maybe it's because you got used to the little things. If there is one thing we have learned this past year, it is the importance of a pleasant home. I feel such gratitude and favor that we have hated our garden and terrace during this strange time. I often think of those who live in…

Focaccia Primavera

Welcoming spring with a focaccia primavera is heavenly nice anyway. I who like symbolic actions think that this is a great way to celebrate spring. Like a harvest bread but before you have even had time to plant the seeds. Maybe the harvest will be better then ..? If nothing else, it's heavenly beautiful and crazy good. I start from a completely ordinary recipe for focaccia which I then decorate with vegetables…

New MINI Countryman on test drive

In collaboration with MINI Sweden On our trip up to the mountains, we took the new MINI Countryman plugin hybrid on a test drive. We had the pleasure of trying out the car for a while and thought we would really test what it went for. We rode terrain and a mixture of thaw weather and icy slopes. Countryman is big and spacious to be a MINI and it has four-wheel drive which actually impressed…

A cottage among the treetops

In collaboration with Bergaliv Living voluntarily with less is a thought and a concept that has attracted me for a long time. In a world where abundance and excess have become the new normal, it feels liberating to live with a little. One way to try it is to live in a treetop cabin up on the mountain in Vallsta. We checked in at Bergaliv for a minimalist retreat. Just the two of us, the treetops and…

Pat an alpaca in Stockholm

The weekend offered glorious sun and blue skies, the days get longer and even though it is cold outside, I feel that I want to be outdoors a little more for each day. We went and tried the outdoor / forest course and met the cutest alpacas. Think how good you can feel just by patting an alpaca. We have walked in the winter sun and really refueled in the form of family time and by…

As close to Paris as we could get

How close can you get to Paarirs without leaving Stockholm at all? It turned out to be quite close, with a little imagination and pure willpower, our wedding day turned out to be almost as we had imagined .. The plan was to go away for a weekend and celebrate, preferably in Paris or at least somewhere in France. Because it was not possible, we tried to make the best of the situation and it got better than me…
