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.

Enjoy

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.

Where did February go?

Seriously! February was not so kind to us! Like really not kind, but it also brought us one of the best surprise ever (more on that later)! I got so sick!  Even one of the dogs got sick.  It  was horrible.  I am so glad February is over.  Plus March has brought the sun to this winter.  Yippee!!  Its been so pretty these last couple of days. Please bring SPRING!

I know the last time I posted it was about the video, which I am still going to do. I was not able to video every day as for two weeks I didn’t leave my bed (no really). So I will be working on it in the next couple of days. HAHA it’s mainly Le’i and the dogs. Not sure how exciting it will be.  The thing I did like was that I started thinking more about video and documenting things in our little life.

So little update our closets are almost finished. Yes, I can stop living out of my suitcase!  The chicken coop is almost done.  Yes, we are getting chickens!  The house came with a coop and a sheep shed ( I guess that’s what you call it). It needed some renovation and stuff so we have been working on that.  I am still in awe that we will be having chickens, I am excited but also find it so funny   Here come the new little farmers.  Since spring is coming we are looking to plant our first little garden.  Oh my gosh so much to learn about gardening.  It truly is an art form.

My cooking is getting better and better…..well at least I think so. Finally getting used to grocery shopping here in Sweden, although I still have moments where I am calling the Mr. and asking him what the heck I am looking at.  Good times I tell you.

Yes this does happen every now and then.   Sometimes you want to feel the warmth!

Also I will be devoting more time to this blog!  I know you all want to know more about my country living. 🙂

Still warm…slippers and all

Ok I think the Swedes would still say its warm. Yes, it is warm but it would be a winter day if we were still in Hawaii.  So I have a little mix up in my style.  I am dressed for the cool breeze but still hoping for the warmth of the summer.  Hence the slippers.  You just can’t take Hawaii out of this girl!

I am still perfecting my style shoots, to be honest it feels a little weird posting about what I wore. Even though I love reading others style blogs. Its seems so vain!  🙂 These images where taken with my iphone. Sometimes its just easier.   So here is me!

Who’s the boss

Me of course! Hugo Boss duh! I am my mom best personal assistant. I don’t complain, I listen to her all the time. I help her with her work. I greet her like a hero when she comes home. I am pretty much the best!
We are packing and it’s crazy!
I finally got the okay to go to Sweden (it’s so crazy tryin to get me in) my mom almost gave me away! Who does that? She finally stopped drinking the kool aid. Although I have to be under the plane the whole time (she is really nervous about it). I had a billion shots and I still have a ton a paper work hence the picture below! I told her if she brings me I’ll do all the work like a boss!
