Above you can see some of the things I like right now. Firstly, tulips! The first day of spring is here, and what is more appropriate than tulips now? These days we always have fresh tulips at home. Somehow I got Hannes to understand that it’s as important as fresh bread on daily basis.
Secondly, I’m very much into Lucas Papaw Ointment now. It’s one of those great all-round products similar to Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream, minus the weird smell. This ointment is based on fermented papaya. Also, it’s an Australian product, and anything from down under is pretty exotic here in Sweden, which I like!
And then we have children’s books. Isn’t it wonderful to get a chance to dive into that world again? I think it is, and I’m so happy I “have to” do it thanks to Johannes now! I especially like books which have nice artistic illustrations in them. What a nice first introduction to art for a child!
There are still some days left of February, but it definitely feels like spring is in the air. The days are longer now, and spring flowers are popping out from the ground everywhere. Greger doesn’t need to wear his fur any more.
Also, I see a lot of couples. Suddenly, people everywhere are walking around holding hands. What a wonderful world!
The Olympic Games of 2014 have become historical for Sweden. The fact is that Sweden has never won as many medals during winter games as this time.
I’ve been following the Olympics religiously (as many of you know, we don’t own a TV, so I watch it online) and I can be nothing but proud of the Swedish athletes! Fourteen medals so far, and we are getting one tomorrow as well! Sweden is to meet Canada in the ice hockey final tomorrow. And we are aiming for gold!
Our baby is turning one year old today! He’s incredibly intelligent and funny, and we love him so!..

I’m going to share some of my recent Instagram shots for those of you who are not following me there (swedishloveaffair)!

A couple of days ago in snowy weather. Wearing a cap knitted by my mother, of course!

Today I want to show you Titus’ new style! You can hardly recognize him now, right?
My mum got all the necessary equipment for grooming a poodle for Christmas, so one of these days she decided to try it on Titus. And voilà, here’s his new haircut! He got rid of so much fur (I kind of wish there was some use for it, though!).
He didn’t enjoy the process much, but he’s absolutely loving the result!

Here’s a recent photo of Johannes and Titus. They are so great together, aren’t they?
