A summer has gone by

And fall is here.

It’s been a different type of summer for us. After being in Spain in April/May, we stayed in Sweden all summer. We hoped for all to go well, wanted to believe it would but couldn’t really relax until summer was almost over. I rested a lot, Anders cooked food and took great care of me and we were thankful for all that we have.

Now we’ve come more than half way. We’re expecting a baby in February!

Yep, the last IVF-treatment did it’s job and there’s a lively, healthy baby joining our family in about four months time.

So the journey of life brings yet new experiences and we’re happy and grateful to be part of it all.

Have a nice weekend and take care!



Being the odd ones

Sometimes I believe it’s part of our (Anders’ and mine) “assignement” in this life to be the odd ones, the ones who do, think and believe slightly different from the main stream of the Western world we were born and raised in.

By all means, we’re not the only ones, and I know a lot of people feel that they’re different at times.

During a walk the other day, it hit me again: it might actually be our mission to dare and stand up for what we believe in, for who we are (slightly odd and funny), to show that it’s ok to be you, and to meet the eyes of the people who ask the same questions over and over again.

To stand up for oneself, to be as unique and special as each one of us are (all of us, entire mankind), and not always follow the stream just because it might be the easier way – that is to be you. To fully own our decisions, how ever hard or scary it might feel.

The playful version of me

Don’t know if this post is helpful or not, I just wanted to put my thoughts into words, and keep the blog alive.

With lots of love and autumn sunshine from Sweden,
