How I did Spring break this year: Family, food, drink, and culture

19 Apr 2017 gatherings

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.

  1. What gorgeous photos! Handsome brother again. 😉 You and Lina are always so beautiful too. The scenery was breathtaking! How do those trees even bloom in such cold temps? Thanks for taking time to slow down and document your life through pictures!

      Thank you!!! It means so much to hear from someone that she things my photos are good. I loooooove taking them + sharing them! Hehe. Yeah. My brother is a cool dude for sure. And you are so kind, Tracy. It’s crazy… those are the only trees that are blooming. Everything else is totally bare! And it’s driving me crazy. I want Spring!! 🙂

    Looking at all your pictures made me smile; you all look like you had such a wonderful week. I’m so happy you were able to spend time together. I loved following along on IG but I really enjoyed seeing more of your photos – especially those gorgeous cherry blossoms and the shots from the art museum(s?)! xx

    • Liz says:

      We really, really did have a great time. As always! Yes, it was the modern art museum in Stockholm. 🙂 xoxo

    what a wonderful visit. your pictures are great as always — would love to have captions so I know better what i am seeing.

    • Liz says:

      Thanks so much Pat. I know, I know. I really knew that I should write captions, but I just got so lazy after preparing all of the photos. There really is a bunch to tell about many of the places. Maybe I should have broken up the post, actually, but I just couldn’t help myself. I couldn’t stop once I got started! 🙂 I will plan my post (s) better in the future! xoxo

share your soul...
