summer weather has arrived in sweden!! and you know what that means, right?! yep. flip flops! my favorite shoes to wear (or not wear, since that’s part of the point for me. hehe.) anyway… after our day of business & work was over, lina and i put on summer clothes, grabbed a blanket & books, and headed to a sunny, warm park. and i wore my flip flops to get there. yes! oh how i looove summer weather! peace out.
it’s a beautifully sunny evening in norrköping. the sky is bright blue. the sun is golden. the trees are now dark green. the air is warm, yet crisp (when the wind blows, or when you happen to find yourself walking through some shade). it is amazing here in sweden when the weather is good. but, i am inside right now. just had some dinner, and ready to settle in with a glass of wine and a little tv watching soon. […]
sometimes there are good programs on tv. important ones. ones that can make a difference. tonight lina and i watched the last episode of “det blir bättre” (it gets better). for the past 6 weeks this show has featured six people (one per episode) who have shared their stories, their experiences, and their struggles in life so that others might find a little hope. these 6 people have conquered their fears, battled the demons in their pasts, and come to […]

nya rådstugugatan. my street. my home. yep. it’s late and i’m now home. it’s been a long, but really, really great day. there are some days that i can speak swedish, and some days i can’t. i have no idea why things happen that way. but, today i was freaking on fire. i think i may have even turned a little corner… it feels like i spoke more swedish than ever before. the swedish switch just turned on in my […]
it’s tuesday night and we’re having a cozy night at home ’cause we feel so tired. we did manage to find just enough energy to make a tasty dinner (that lina created. she’s so good at that!). now. we’re watching some tv and headed to bed pretty soon, i think. feels a little weird to be going to bed when it’s not quite dark out yet, though. but, that’s spring/summer in sweden! (which i love.) and it is certainly amazingly […]
aaahhhh… how amazing the weather was today! i slept late and woke to find the sun shining brightly. so, i opened the windows, made a pot of coffee, & surfed the internet from the cozy bed. eventually it was time to drag myself out from under the covers & away from the pillows and begin the day. first on the agenda: a clean apartment. lina and i turned on some music and made everything squeaky clean and smellin’ fresh. then, […]
