Hey lovely people! I started my day with breakfast in bed. My boyfriend made rice pudding (porridge) so we ate and had a cozy time.
Later today we will have a friend coming to eat dinner with us. My boyfriend will cook a turkey and other food for us. I’m posting photos, so keep following my Instagram Story!!
WE HAVE LOTS OF FOOD & SWEETS! It actually feels pretty nice.
I wanted to check in here and wish you all a cozy day where you get to spend time with your beloved ones.
My Xmas Gift – DIONE EARRINGS by Caroline Svedbom
Now I count down the days, for my real coming holiday. The destination isn’t Maldives though I always dreamed about it. It is more going to the loved ones who we miss a lot.
I will start by visiting my friend and his dog in the north of Sweden. I take with me the lazy attitude which comes with age Lolllllll!! ❤ Lots of kisses, hugs and love.
My first Midsummer in Sweden was just Purrrrrfect with my friends 🙂
Though the day was raining in the morning but it ended up as a sunny one in the afternoon.
Swedes celebrate the longest day of the year with family members and friends in the countryside. They keep singing, drinking alcohol and eating traditional swedish food prepared by almost everyone.
Pickled herring is a particular favourite during this season. Also strawberries and the lingonberries are quite popular in the summer and they are usually consumed in the form of cake or cream.
In agrarian times, Midsummer celebrations in Sweden were held to welcome the summertime and the season of fertility.
Flower wreaths are a common motif in Midsummer gatherings. You can find revelers of all genders wearing these garlands. Mine was not real but it was a pretty one which I will keep on my mirror as a positive sign.
Here you can see my mini towering maypole – it is usually a huge one, so people can dance around it – which is an iconic symbol of Midsummer celebrations.
Puss Puss, J
When I’m exhausted, I usually gravitate toward activities that drain me even more. But we deserve to take a break, so i decided not to ignore my body’s whispers for rest. Today was time to relax and chill.
I listened to music, played with my cats “Antonio & Ophelia” and I can say that this quality time was so much pleasurable.
Today was all about recharging, having breakfast in bed, meal plan for the next week, I went to gym, and I had a new nail-polish. The idea was to give my body, mind, and heart a chance to relax and recharge. I owe myself the gift of a deep breath and a view of the long sunset.
After all, we can’t increase the number of hours in the day, but we can increase the quality of those hours.
