Warm water + lemon juice
Having breakfast on my own in the small place I am staying during this work week, I just realized how simple things get when there’s not so much to take care of.
Water, coffee and fruits
When the area is small, it’s not so much to clean. When there are not so many things, there’s not so much to fuzz about. And that means a lot more time to do whatever feels fun, inspiring and good. Time to just be, to hang out with friends and family, to stay outside or to read, watch a movie, cook food or _______________ (fill in the blank).

I am not saying it’s wrong to live in a large beautiful mansion or to have a lot of things. Just saying that all different situations have their pros and cons. And that trying different ways is enriching my experience and understanding.
Sightseeing last Saturday
Now Anders is off to main land Portugal, to stay in Lisboa a few days before returning to Sweden for the first time in almost seven months.
I’m staying here on the island for another two weeks before going to Stockholm and a family reunion, so it’ll be three weeks until the two of us get together again.
Anders outside airport security
Seven months we’ve been together every single day. Seen new places, finding our way to different houses (without gps), getting to know people and pets, trusting other people’s kindness, talked about life and our innermost fears, joys and dreams, explored and lived.
The dogs didn't want Anders to leave
We’ve split our First Aid Kit in two and taken one mobile charger each… And yes, it most likely will be odd not spending time together tomorrow. And the coming 21 days.

Now it’s a new time in our lives and again; a chance to embrace change.
