one line a day five year memory book swedish love affair

Of course, my friend has a perfect manicure!

Today I met my beloved friend, who chooses to stay anonymous on the blog (at least for now), but this post is about her. Need I say that the three hours we spent together passed unbelievably fast? And we also exchanged Christmas presents. I gave Isa this five-year book (when I bought it long ago, it’s her I had in mind), and she promised she’d start writing in it today. And she got me a deliciously smelling tea and a hyacinth vase – exactly what I wanted!

We met at a café called Husaren, which has the largest cinnamon buns in town. You can’t tell from my photo, as there’s no reference, but their diameter is like one of a large plate!

    Aww, that’s so sweet that you exchange gifts! :D My best friend and I both blog but she is very private about herself and only posts opinion essays online, while I go crazy posting pictures. Love that book you gave her and the pastries are making me hungry…Hehe

    It sounds like you had a lovely time, and the idea of the five-year memory book is wonderful. I already keep a journal but I can’t help wanting to have one of these, too!

    Meeting friends is always lovely! Especially when you get to exchange such nice gifts. Those cinnamon buns and other baked goods look absolutely delicious, but so huge, I think I would have to share one to be able to finish it! :)
