Merry belated Christmas to all of you!

I hope you all had a great Christmas so far. The weather here on the west cost is literally awful, it rains and storms outside so it’s the third day that we are literally looked inside. But we had a great time together this year and I am beyond grateful for that we were all able to come together to celebrate Christmas for the first time in our second new home here in Sweden.

Tomorrow it’s Wednesday and we’re driving to the airport to drop of my grandmother and her new husband as they are going home. Thereafter me and my parents are going to town to have lunch, a coffee or two and maybe have look at the sale. And not to forget, in the evening I am meeting up with an old friend of mine for another coffee or drink before going back home.

What are you guys up to these days?

I have been questioning lately if I should continue to write in English or if I should go back to write in Swedish? ... What makes me consider to change is that I believe it might get more personal if I write in Swedish, hmmm ....

What do you guys think and what would you prefer? And how many of you guys are international readers? Please share with me!

Hi everyone - I am still alive and the reason for my absence lately has just been that life came in between. Here is a small update with what I have been up to lately.

I spontaneously booked a ticket to Örnsköldsvik to visit my grandmother, uncle and cousins. I booked my ticket and flew out the day after. I went there for some pre Christmas vacation. We always celebrated Christmas up there when I was a child but as our traditions changed I try to visit at least once a year.

After a couple of days in the North doing absolutely nothing but gathering some pre Christmas spirit I went back home to Zurich to unpack my bags before it was time to re pack them again.

But at least I had time to visit the mountains and town to fix some last minute Christmas presents before we were heading towards Gothenburg where we will be celebrating Christmas and New Years this year.

So right now I am sitting in Gothenburg and looking outside where it’s storms and rains heavenly I don’t feel any Christmas spirit at all. But at least I got my cup of cinnamon tea and the Christmas tree is lighting up the room and last night the whole family arrived.

Can anyone actually believe that it’s Christmas Eve tomorrow?! I can’t but I can’t wait tough as I am in love with this time of the year.

When I woke up this morning it wasnt as dark ourside as it usually is this time of the year. What had changed over night? Snowfall. We got our first snow in the city last night and even if I was skeptical at first it was absolutely stunning to have this lunch view today.

My father is coming back from NYC tonight so we thought we have a calm and relaxing time at home this weekend instead of going to the mountains.

Our plans is to visit the Christmas market in town, do some pre Christmas shopping and prepare for the 1st advent this Sunday. I am literally in love with this time of the year.  

I wish you all a blissful weekend! Injoy. x

It’s Sunday afternoon and after another relaxing weekend get away it’s time to get back to the city and the realty. But if I could I would like live up here during this time of the year. To wake up to snow covered alps, getting warm in front of the fire place and inhale the fresh crispy air from the alps. Wouldn’t you?

I wish you all a blissful Sunday! x

Zurich is stunning at day light when you see the snow covered alps. But at this time a year when all the Christmas decorations are set up and lights are turned on Zurich is shining brighter then ever.

Another day when I feel blessed for living in the most beautiful city in the world.  If you plan to visit Zurich, this is the most magical time of the year.

One of the worst thing you can do is to over analyze your past and think what if?

Last spring I was filled with excitement and curiosity. At the time I had no idea that I would stand with the two great opportunities in my hand two months later. When it was time to make the decision I promised my self that I would not think "what if" I would have chosen differently, after I had made my final decision.

But that is a promise I haven't been able to hold. I choose to move back to Sweden instead of taking the opportunity to move across the world to Australia.The two University offers that I got where more or less the same, therefor my decision about where to go was based upon what I thought I could handle personally and how far away I could handle to be from my family.

I mentioned to you before that despite the fact that I was prepared, I wasn’t ready. Things did not turn out in the way I had planned or hoped for. After having been back in Switzerland for some time I’ve had time to reflect and even if I shouldn’t I can’t help but to think what if I would have chosen differently? What if I would have stayed? Along with another hundred throughs. What if? ...

Good morning! 

Some days are better, some are worse and I am convinced that anyone out there can relate to this as it is a part of this beautiful thing called life

Yesterday was one of those days for me when nothing felt great no matter what I did or how hard I tried. I felt so down but when I stopped pushing those feelings away all my anxiety and negative thoughts slowly faded away by themselves. I allowed my self to just be, feel and breath. And in the end of the day I was able to go to bed in peace with small feeling of appreciation.

Today I woke up energized with a positive spirit, filled with excitement for a new day and a new week.

What are you doing today to kick start this new week? No matter what you do, I wish you a great day xx

It’s weekend and that means quality time with the family. I’ve spent the day with my favorite person in town drinking coffee and ginger tea. For me there are moments like these that make life so great. 

I wish you all a lovely Saturday everyone x

I can say that there are definitely worse places than this to wait at when you see the bus drive past you. This picture was taken yesterday afternoon when I was on my way home from town. Today on the other  hand the grey depressing November weather is back. Is it just me or doesn’t November feel like the longest and darkest month of the year? Well, I don’t like it. I can’t wait for the snow to come so it at least gets a little brighter outside. 

Today is one of those days when my body and mind tells me to do nothing else than rest, so that’s my plan, reading and sipping coffee at home. What are you guys up to today?
