A surprise gift

September 3, 2016

New stuff.

New stuff.

Liz came home with a surprise package yesterday. What an amazing wife I have ♥ I wore the earrings directly when I went to a kick off party with my job last night, and gosh, I love them. The t-shirt will be ready to be worn on Monday, but more about that day then! *Cliffhanger*.

Hope you’re having a great weekend!

Back in Sweden

August 17, 2016

West AVL.

I’m back in Sweden after an amazing month in the USA. We’ve done so many fun and exciting things, and I can’t wait to show you some snippets and a video or so from our time over the pond. Liz has done some amazing documentation, divided in several blog posts, so instead of pretty much repeating what she has written and shown, I’m gonna figure out another way to share our adventures, so stay tuned. But until then, go over and check out Liz’s blog here.

Wine night & USA

July 19, 2016

Liz and I celebrated a little bit the other night. Why? Because we can, but perhaps also because Liz started her vacation, and we were in the middle of our preparations for our trip to the US, which starts TODAY!!!

French wine.

French wine.

We’re taking off around lunch time (Swedish time) and arriving in NY in the afternoon (American time). If you would like to tag along a little bit more, I’ll try to update my Instagram and Snapchat accounts as much as possible.

You’ll find my Instagram here or search for my nickname, lierseesand my Snapchat nickname is, lier84.

Books for the nearest future

July 17, 2016

This post is in Swedish due to the books I’m gonna read is in Swedish…

Inspirerad av min kusin och hennes blogg, kommer härmed ett inlägg om vilka böcker jag har som väntar på att få läsas. Jag har med andra ord inte hunnit läsa dessa och kan inte ger en någon recension än av dessa men planerar att skriva ett inlägg om mina omdömen senare i höst.

Back in town

July 16, 2016

I’m back in Uppsala after an amazing week in the archipelago together with family and friends. I’ve been rowing a boat, canoeing, taking a dip in the cold (at least to me) ocean, laughing like crazy… I’ve been singing, playing Hanabi (a new, again, to me, fun game), walking in the woods with my dad, staring at the endless beauty of nature, talking both about fun things and sad things, gotten sad news, and gained more confidence that I one day will be healthy and free.

This is what it looked like. It was a detox for me when it comes to Internet access. Pretty much zero reception there, so I didn’t carry my phone around and therefore, don’t have that many pics.

Our Paris trip

July 2, 2016

Paris Blog Title

What I’ve learned during the Paris trip

→ The French language is beautiful and I can understand more than I first thought. I even ordered in French once. Heck yeah!

Middle aged Parisian women are beautiful.

→ Parisian guys are, in general, pretty tiny and short.

French people are not that great at English, but you do get far with a smile and simple phrases. Fake it till you make it, basically. I came pretty far with Bonjour (hey) and Merci (thank you), and then add a smile in between.

French food is delicious (had bad experiences as a kid being there..) and the croissant I had for brunch one day was amazing.

→ French people do really go and buy baguettes and carry them around. It’s freaking true, and I love it.

→ If I want a good cup of coffee, cappuccino will be my safe card. The other stuff is too little or too strong for me.

The places I loved the most were the ones with fewer tourists. Once you get away from the most famous landmarks, you’ll find the locals, and also the best bars and restaurants. Says Lina, who’s been there pretty much once. But that was totally my experience during the whole trip.

→ I felt like the Parisians were all so good at living in the moment, enjoying life there and then. It’s like they’ve all taken a Mindfulness class or something. People hung out in the parks, from couples to big groups with like 20 children. A man tasted red wine at 11am, along with some cheese. All the coffee places, bars, and restaurants, were open pretty late so you could enjoy it longer.

Liz is doing an amazing job, documenting the trip on her blog, day by day, so if you would like a more detailed version of our trip, I recommend you to check it out here. Also, stay tuned, because there will be a movie coming up in the very near future.

Paris

June 24, 2016

paris

When you reading this, Liz and I will be sitting on a plane to Paris! This is huge in so many different ways. We had a trip booked to Paris back in May 2012, around my birthday, but had to cancel it since I had been admitted to the hospital (by order of the law) and was too sick with Anorexia to go. I still remember the day when we were supposed to go, and how I was lying in the hospital bed, sobbing, and feeling like the worst person and wife ever. It was horrible. The first and the last time I was in Paris, was in the beginning of the 90’s (when the picture above was taken – I was greeting and talking with the wax figures at Madame Tussauds).

So, Paris, it’s about time for us to explore you, and I’m over the top excited! Be prepared for a bunch of pictures from Paris once we’re back!

Happy Midsummer!!
