So.....let this be an inspiration to you all who are facing a tough day or week and can't see how you will make it through. No matter what, stay motivated and committed! Wake up and BE AWESOME!
|Whatever it was that Mable had has hit me like a semi-truck! In bed drinking lots of water today. Daniel and Mable are going to the Schlagerfest at Vällingby City to see Sean Banan.. She loves him! #sick #bored — at Råcksta.|
|Every year our family either travels to Southern Sweden or the United States to celebrate Christmas with our family. So far, we have never celebrated a Christmas in our own home. The problem is lack of space. We have a large family here in Sweden and our sweet little city apartment is not suitable. Still, it would feel weird and almost isolationist to stay in Stockholm away from the family just to spend Christmas alone...plus, the child would be missing out on tons of presents which would have to be shipped to Stockholm and that is crazy. So basically, we travel around Sweden collecting all the presents for Mable and transport them back to Stockholm for her.|
|Butterfly Ornament purchased from Indiska 2010..I have a thing for butterflies!|
Although we do leave I started to buy "special ornaments" like two per year because I still keep the tradition of putting up my Christmas tree immediately after Thanksgiving. In Sweden, people decorate the tree as late as Christmas Eve....The American tradition prevailed over that one...so we do have a few weeks of the holidays in the apartment although we are not here on Christmas Eve.
|I kinda like owls in the tree..I have two of them but this one is my favorite. Purchased them from Ahlens in 2010.|
|My family bought this ornament for Daniel when we lived in the States. He really likes it..its kinda cute!|
|This ornament is one of my favorites. I got this one from William Sonoma when I worked there as a store manager. At that time I was totally obsessed with cooking and totally into the snowman chef ornaments.|
|Here is Pinocchio that I bought from this amazing toy store in Sirmione on the last day of our trip to Italy.|
