Happy Sunday!! Time passes so quickly. How crazy Ha?!

Last week I attended “Saint Lucia” concert at Katarina kyrka (Church of Catherine) in Stockholm for the first time.

Yes, one of Sweden’s most famous and popular festivals is Lucia. It is celebrated every year on December 13 that is also the Lucia name day. I had the opportunity to see Lucia coming with song and music in the absolute darkest time of the year. The Christmas spirit doesn’t get any better than that.

It was also nice to visit the Christmas market in Gamla Stan, where we found a lot of Swedish Christmas sweets, smoked sausages, smoked reindeer, elk meat, handmade knitted hats, candy floss and glögg (mulled wine).

Yesterday I decided to work even more on my Christmas vibes and put my first Xmas tree on. Little cute one!

Undoubtedly, Christmas can be one of the most celebrated yet equally stressful times of the year especially for those who didn’t even think of shopping for Xmas.

Good friends are a gift in life, and it’s important to find ways to surprise them every now and then to remind them how special they are.

Yesterday I spent my afternoon with Jamie, we done shopping, walked around town and ate together. Such a fun day!!

It’s so easy to take people we care about for granted, but nothing makes you feel more alive and joyful than experiencing true happiness with a friend or loved one. so make sure you take time to let those you care for know how much you appreciate them.

Last week, we also spent a whole day together, we started with a crazy early morning to get breakfast at Nytorget 6. WOW, great place for food and drinks, friendly staff. And the nice surprise is that you are allowed to get in with our dog.

Eating breakfast with a good company is a surprisingly easy way to make the whole day better.

If you have that friend who knows your deepest, darkest secrets, you know each other inside-out and you have more fun with her/him than anyone else in the whole wide world, then don’t forget to take them out and spend a day doing fun things and sharing memories.

But now Nighty Night to Y’all. XOXO

Flowers for Xmas

Maybe it is cold outside, but it will be soon warm inside, with the beautiful winter and Christmas decorations.

Sending flowers on Christmas is one of my favorite traditions and it is a wonderful way to celebrate the season.

Remember when you go to shop for fresh flowers that most flower shops restock on Monday mornings, so that’s the time to place an order.

To make your flowers last more, cut the stems at an angle and change the water at least every other day.

Notice that flowers don’t water themselves so don’t forget to add water to the vase.
