I hope you guys had a nice day today! I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather today (sore throat!), but I had a good time anyway. For instance, here you can see us wearing our new beanies. Nice, isn’t it?
He seemed to really have gotten the hang of it, so I hope we’re going to enjoy his baking more often from now on!
A lot of things have happened since we spoke last. The biggest one is that we have moved to a different city. Hannes got a new job, which gave us a choice of a few large cities to move to (Stockholm and Copenhagen among them), so exciting! We almost moved to Stockholm, but however, at the last minute we decided for Gothenburg.
Gothenburg is the second largest city in Sweden, and is also the place where both Hannes and I grew up. Who would have thought! This means our families and most of our friends are always near, so we can hang out and Johannes gets to know them well.
We have only lived here a month or so, and so far I’m happy. I will tell you more in detail about our new place and other points-of-interest soon!
Last Friday Sweden celebrated it’s National Day. It’s a national holiday, so most people had a three-day weekend! Luckily the weather was absolutely beautiful, so everyone headed outdoors. And so did we. Today (and I mean all day!) was spent at the botanical garden, which is situated about 5 minutes from where we live.
We started by feeding ducklings. Johannes loves to feed animals, but then again who doesn’t?
Everything changes fast, doesn’t it? In my previous life most of the Fridays and Saturdays were spent at wild clubs and parties drinking tequila. These days they’re spent on the playground. And who would have thought it was more fun?!
Here’s our family having a tea party last Saturday. Another kind of party.
Greger doesn’t approve of all the children there. He prefers to stay safe at Johannes’ Bugaboo. Still, he makes sure to shake his body as best he can, pretending he’s extremely cold and breaking all the grandmothers’ hearts.
We have recently come home from Copenhagen (again!). I’m planning another one of those People of Copenhagen posts soon.
Meanwhile, I can tell you that Sweden must be the most baby-friendly country in the world! Here you can be comfortable with a baby, a baby stroller baby food almost wherever you come (I mean, restaurants, museums, shops and other public places). It’s a bliss! Danmark is close, but just not as baby-friendly. Still, I love it.
Johannes says hi!
Hope you guys had a wonderful Easter!
Hello! Many of you remembered my birthday last week – thank you all for your kind birthday messages and wishes! The day (it was a Friday) was partly spent at my favorite cafe eating cake. There were a lot of hyacinths and presents.
And then I went out for a day in the sun testing my new Speedlight flash, which was one of the best birthday presents I could ever imagine!
I have updated my spring wardrobe with this cool blouse from Stenströms. The wild animal print features a lot of species, but the funniest one must be the giraffe wearing sneakers.
And at the same time, when you’re looking at this shirt from a distance, it simply looks like a greenish shirt with an abstract print. A pretty flattering one, too!
