Kind of spontaneously, my brother decided to spend Spring Break in Sweden! Nick lives in Maine and has been working at a university in New Hampshire. So, when he decided that he’d take some time off (since he worked through the Christmas holidays when we were there), he thought he’s come for a visit. And that made me + Lina more happy than I could ever express.
Now, spring break in Sweden ain’t all that great to be honest. The weather is freaky and you can literally have everything (except real warmth) all in one day. This week has happened to be exceptionally frigid and brutal. Sure, it is slooooooowly beginning to look like spring, but it feels like January. But, no matter. We just wanted to hang and be together. And, that we did!
Whoa. That was a lot of photos. But, I didn’t shoot any videos, so I am happy that I have so many shots. But, you know me. I take photos like freaking crazy. There’s something beautiful about documenting life, I think. Not only so I capture moments + can go back and look at them later. But, also because it causes me to slow down in my life and soak in the moments as they happen.
As you can tell by my massive amounts of photos, this week with my brother meant so very much to me – and to Lina. All we did was spend time with each other. Drink good beer + wine. Ate good food. Enjoyed a bunch of incredible art + mind-blowing history. And, of course, had continuous conversation + laughs through it all. What an incredibly special week. My heart is absolutely overflowing.
