first class all the way.


hanging out here in first class on the train to gothenburg for the weekend. surfing the net for free, sipping coffee, eating chocolate, soaking in the Swedish sunshine warming me through the window. train rides are sooo cozy. just another day in the life… hehe. not really. we never travel first class, but it wasn’t that much more expensive thjs time, so we went for it. and i’m loving it.

inevitably i always hear some english when I travel, and just now i discovered that there are 2 american men sitting a few seats in front of me. it feels so cool when i hear american english, like i’m instantly connected with fellow patriots from across the pond. they are speaking quite loudly, so i am staring intensely. hehe. can’t stop. and there’s also this elderly Swedish lady making tons of phone calls about random things. she speaks very slowly & very loudly, so we all know what’s going on with her. great people watching on a train, if the view outside the windows bores you (which should never happen here – boredom – since the countryside is beautiful!),

anyway, we’re headed to the west coast to visit friends this weekend and just hang out. youknow there will be a little shopping, a little fika, a little wine, and tons of pics. gonna be so great to have 3 days completely off. yay!


quote of the day:

“the very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. the joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
~ Chris McCandless

wishing you a fabulous weekend! peace.

my new spring do.

it was time for a change, so i got a new, messy, funky haircut. it’s a big change and it feels so much better. just in time for a little road trip too. we’re headed to gothenburg for a 3 day weekend. gonna be great!

peace out, peeps.

week 4: march instagram pics.

it’s the last week & i have had so much fun finding things to photograph for the march photo a day challenge. and i must say, i am super proud of myself for actually following through every single day – something i never, ever do. so, it’s actually a big thing for me. ok. too much talk. time for pics.

day 22: kitchen sick

 this is not my kitchen sink. but it is my dream one. a little bit modern. a little bit country.

day 23: animalzola loves this box. to sit in, sleep in, chew on, tear up. she sounds like a puppy, huh?

day 24: moon ironically, there was no moon on this night. so i cheated & used a pic that i took a few mornings earlier.

day 25: breakfast the breakfast of champions… when you’re in a hurry.

day 26: keys got my keys & my headphones. ready to walk home from work after a long day.

day 27: your (my) name as i was killing some time in a book store, i ran across an author who i share the same first name with: elizabeth. i snapped a shot & promised myself that one day, my first & last name will be on a book cover standing on a shelf in a book store. yep.

day 28: trash i kissed lina goodbye & she handed me a trash bag. so i took out the trash this morning on my way to work… like a good, little wife. this is our little trash house in our apartment building’s backyard. cute, huh? for a trash house.

only 3 days left in the photo challenge & then it’s april. i’m all ready to go! join along, if you want! i use my iPhone & instagram to take the pictures, and then i post them here on my blog. but, you can use your camera or phone & post them on twitter, your blog, Facebook, pinterest, or some other social media. if you are gonna use a hash tag so we can all see each others’, then use this one: #photoadayApril. it’ll be good to start a new month, with new inspirations. you can be sure i’ll be totally into it come sunday. hehe! but, i’ve still got 3 more march pics to do. you’ll see them later this weekend.

well, it’s wednesday – my super long & busy day. so, it’s time to let my head hit the pillow. sweet dreams to all of you out there. goodnight.
