A weekend get-away...

I have just gotten home from two nights on Baltic Queen. We sailed the seas to Tallinn and back. Tallinn was beautiful, the old town was so cozy and the newer side of town had elements of the old in it. I really enjoyed walking around in a new country and see new things. I had never went on a boat before as well, so it was a very fun and new experience to sleep on a boat. The entertainment was also very good, the dancers and singers were very good and had amazing songs that everyone could sing to.

Anyway, here are some pictures we took on our travels:

No pictures, sorry!

Varm drinks, the smell of cinnamon and the wonderful colors of Autumn...

I was browsing the internet today, looking at some new stuff for our home, when I saw that Åhlens has gotten a few Autumn stuff in. As a Autumn-lover, I freaked out. I could smell cinnamon and fantasized how my new home would look like with some new decor. Of course, I bought a few things (because how could I not?). Now that I have my own home, I can decide how I want it to look, Alex does not care too much....

I got so much Autumn feelings while watching Åhlens new stuff and got so excited. I have been starting to want Christmas as well. I have been watching so many Christmas-videos on Youtube from my favorite creators. I cannot wait until the weather gets colder and the mood gets more cosy.

My heaven...

Since the 9th -- until today--, Alex and I went to Gräsö, where we always go every summer. I love Gräsö, I love the people near our house, I love the sent of the sea, I love Öregrund -- I love it all. It is one of my favorites places to go during the summer.

On the 9th, we just got to our home, unpacked, watched movies and just chilled.

Yesterday, we went to the sea with my parents and later we went to Öregrund and walked around, not having a destination or a time-limit.

Today, we ate some breakfast and went home. We had a major grocery shopping session and we have just done some food.

As said before, I love Gräsö, it is my favorite place to be.

Collecting some fun stuff...

Pins. I love them. They are expressive, fun, and colorful. I have gotten some pins.

The first I got was from "Djurens Rätt". The three in the middle is from Kawaii.se. These are the most "traditional" pins and I love them to death. They look so cute -- especially the crystal-one. The last three I got from a special edition of Fire Emblem Echoes.

I have also started collecting amiibos. I will never get them all, like some do, I will get the ones I think looks good and from series that I actually play.

Here are some pictures of them!

Zelda, Link and the Guardian are from Spelbutiken.se. Celica and Alm are from the special edition mentioned above. I love the Zelda series and of course I would get those amiibos. I will try to collect all of the Zelda amiibos.

Books that I love...

I have started to love to read. When I was young, I hated the thought of reading and always watched the movies instead of reading when we were made to read in school. I also asked my grandmother what the books were about because of her reading all the time.

Now, though, I have read more than ever. I have read more this year than I have ever in my life. I love escaping to another world, with your own interpretation. I love how people describe and write novels, it is amazing.

I have four books that have really blown me away, with story, way of writing and characters. So let me give you some book-advice, shall we?

One book that I am reading right now, and is obsessed with, is Ingenting och Allting (Everyting, Everything) by Nicola Yoon. I love the way she writes! It is so easy to follow but yet such an amazing way to write. I am not done with this book yet but I still love it to bits. I really want to read more by Nicola Yoon.

Next book, Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur. This is my first poem book I have bought. I have never really read poems before (I read a few during my university days) and I have heard very good things about this book. And I understand why. There are so many different poems, the way she writes about relationships, feminism, love and hate is really therapeutic.

Another book that I LOVED while reading was Som Stjärnor i Natten (All the Bright Places) by Jennifer Niven. I loved the characters in this book. I loved the story. I felt with every moment in this book. It was simply amazing. I really, really, REALLY recommend this book.

Last, Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. It is a very fun book to read. It was not amazing, but it was good. I liked reading it. I could really empathize with the main character Cath.

That was the books that I really liked reading this year. Once again, I love to read now. I cannot get enough. I am very slow reader though, but that does not matter, right?

Why does people hate it?

I have gotten a tattoo. I love this tattoo, it is everything I wanted and more. Royal Arch Tattoo in Västerås did an amazing job. But even though I love it, I need to hide it from my family. My grandparents hate tattoos and almost want nothing to do with me if they knew that I have one. I cannot show my family, because they would tell them and be so disappointed in me. But it is my choice, isn't it? If they want, I can hide it when I am with them. I really do not understand.

Pictures from my midsummer-weekend...

This midsummer has been one of my best midsummers ever. It was so fun and relaxing. Örö was such a wonderful island and I surly want to come back soon as possible.

The oldest town in Sweden...

Today, me, Alex and his family went to Sigtuna -- the oldest town in Sweden. The town was so cool to be in -- it felt like walking into the past. All the houses looked so small and delicate, like the slightest wind was going to destroy it. I fell in love with the place. I really want to come here again.

We had picnic near the ocean and played "kubb" and "frisbeegolf". The food was awesome and it was so fun to hang out with the family for the day. It is really important to do that sometimes.

My love graduated...

It was a really good and fun day. As a observer, it was really fun to see how happy the students were and how happy and fun Alex had. I am so proud of him, he really is the best person in the world.
