The little island called Donsö

Like I said in the last blog post we went to a little island of the west coast. It is about a 30min ferry ride. There are no cars on the island (well a few, but mainly for building and stuff) they all ride cute little scooters or golf carts. It is really cute. Talk about some clean air. We have really good friends that live there so we actually visit it quite often. It does not have beaches like Hawaii (but who does) it’s perfect for the kids. A little bit of sand and some cold water. Actually it wasn’t that bad. I would recommend the island to anyone visiting. You can walk the whole island in maybe an hour and half. The houses are beautiful and the views from the rocks are amazing. Some amazing spots to swim. We went to a different one each day. The last one we went to was the best as it was just the easiest with having a baby who wants to crawl. The best place to eat on the island is call Isbolaget. Serioulusly so good. Hubby got the smoked salmon twice. The meals are good and you actually get a lot (in europe you tend to get really small plates) as well it’s design is really cool, minimal but still bringing comfort. So here are some images of our couple of days there. The pictures are from the three days we were there.


I didn’t want to do another post and I just liked a lot of the images so there is a lot. Sorry… not really.

We made it! I know I have a lot to post! Sweden has been beautiful and actually warm! We are up north w the mr.’s family none of them have meet le’i yet! By the way he is loving Sweden! Which has been such a blessing. But I think children are so good adjusting to new things. Jet lag was horrible as always, le le got up at4 am a couple of times! Over all we are doing great and loving the move. So much to blog, I know. We move into our house on the 1st of sept so then I will be off and off.
Untill then XOXO

P.SThe picture of mr. and le le in a beach in Sweden! Don’t worry Hawaii your beaches don’t even compare. But it is a different kind of beauty! The family picture us us on a cute little island called hönö!

P.S.S. I have become obsessed with black and white images!




Do you regret

Do you regret never traveling when you had a friend or family member living in a place you have always wanted to go?  I do!  My sister and her husband lived in South Africa for 5 years and we never made it.  Granted they and us both thought they would be there for a couple more years.  We were scheduled to go when my sister gave birth to her son, but we got an unexpected little boy.  Who was the greatest gift (another blog post coming soon) we have ever gotten.  We couldn’t get his passport because the adoption process just started. So there went South Africa. Then the next thing we knew they where moving.  Ahhhh wait we want to come see this beautiful land with you!  We want to see your home, where my nephew was born, the orphanages you worked in, the fields Morgan played professional soccer I want to see all the places that took your breath away, the country you fell in love with and still wish you lived in.  I wanted to see the lions, tigers and the beautiful people.  Oh how I wish timing was in our favor in this. One day I will take you and you will show me this amazing land.  I love you my sister thanks for being a risk taker, for letting your husband follow his dreams in becoming a professional soccer player. You went not knowing any friends and made some of the best friends, you knew the journey would be worth it.  Thanks for showing me home is really where your heart is you had one with us and on in Africa.  When I think about how hard it might be to live in Sweden I think “get over it your baby sis did it”. She had no one but her husband.  I have friends and Mr.’s family.

I am sorry I never came to you see you!  I’ll visit you in California. HAHA love you

This is their cute little pink house.  Its actually a pretty famous part of South Africa called Bo-kaap, in Cape Town.

How cute are her husband and son!
