Home Alone 3

Soon my wonderful husband will move to Jönköping to start his new position. This is a bright and amazing step in his career. I am so very proud of his achievement and think that relocating for this opportunity is obvious but the idea of being separated for ....how ever long it will take us to find a place to live sucks. The plan is that my husband will commute to Stockholm on the weekends. During the week I will stay in Stockholm with the Girls. 

Mable and I posing and testing the self timer function on my Nikon- I admit are a bit close but posing with Mable is always fun

We both agree that pulling Mable out of school where she has tons of friends and a great teacher is traumatic enough. If we all move now there is no guarantee that she will not have to switch schools a few times before we are finally settled into our new home and I will do just about anything to avoid that. So, starting in a few days I will be home alone with my little girls. 

Not quite sure why Olivia always looks terrified but perhaps Mommy with a camera is a terrifying thing
Obviously, I feel really sad about the separation from my husband. He is my very best friend and I will miss the companionship that he gives me. Hopefully, we will find a new home very soon but for now I have our holiday trip to the States to plan so taking life one day at a time...Today is a good day!

I'll keep you posted!

Baby Olivia Meets Her Swedish Family on Öland

Olivia out on a walk with Daniel and I to Kungsförsen i Hemsjö

We are on our way home from visiting my husband's family on Öland for a few days. The baby had a chance to finally meet her Swedish family. Olivia, being such a sweet baby, allowed herself to be passed around and only came to me when she needed some comfort aka food. We managed to drive into Kalmar in the middle of a rain storm to buy a Baby Björn baby carrier so I can get around more freely in the house and in our backyard. Olivia did not like getting wet and she protested the entire operation but Daniel and I remained steadfast and completed the mission. I am not as active as I would like to be but it is only a matter of time before I am back on my feet. It takes time to leave when you have a little baby. Everyone wanted to hold Olivia one last time, everyone wanted to say goodbye. Hopefully we are able to move closer to my husband's family so they can have more contact with each other. We plan to return to Öland again sometime in the Fall  but now we are on our way back to Hemsjö.

Borta bra men hemma bäst!
