it was the first weekend of spring. we changed our clocks ahead & the days grew longer. the weather was beautiful. it was pay day on friday (for most people). and everyone – and i mean everyone – seemed to be out & about, enjoying every single moment of the weekend. it was also a work weekend for lina & me = tons of work hours & working at night. but, we managed to squeeze in some time outside under the sunny, blue skies just like everyone else.
we have all emerged from our winter blues & have our sights set on summer – even if it is only spring & there is the possibility for a snow day. nevertheless, right now in sweden, it’s all about seizing the day. spirits have been lifted & we have crawled out from under our winter blankets & out onto our balconies (which lina & i don’t have. but that is a whole other story. you don’t want to hear me whine.) and into the parks.
here are some snapshots of early spring days in sweden!
on my way to work friday night. the tree is yellow!!!
fika on friday with my love. blueberry pie. yum.
spring decorations in the shopping area. they make me so happy.
bought a paris guide book. we’re going in may & we’re booking our flight tomorrow! i cannot contain my excitement!
sipping coffee & soaking up rays.
saw a sunday matinee: the hunger games. go see it. the hype is right!
