because i love fairy tales.

ok. i know you all are just dying to know. hehe. do you even remember the big swedish news from yesterday? the sweet new princess, one day heir to the swedish throne, now has a name! and i think it is beautiful. since my opinion matters. =) it’s not a traditional royal name, and none of the guessers out there were even close…

princess estelle silvia ewa mary

duchess of östergötland

all royalty are given an area, a county, of sweden to “rule over”, and the king (estelle’s granddad) announced this morning that estelle’s county is östergötland. and guess what?! östergötland just happens to be the county where we live! yep. feeling proud & excited.

i am so into this living in a country where there are kings, queens, princesses, heirs, & duchesses. it’s just like a fairy tale. yep. i’m a dorky american.

    So exciting! What a beautiful name! I can’t wait to see pictures! 🙂 I searched around last night to see if they’d released anything new yet, but apparently I was a few hours too early. Anyway, woohoo for Östergötland! That makes me very happy. 🙂

    I am a HUGE royalist so I totally get this.
    Honestly I can’t really even read news articles about good old queenie as I well up with all this sentimental happiness for her!
