So excited for my new blog! It’s still not fully finished but I will be blogging on there from now on. For any of the english speaking readers, I’m sorry but it will be in Swedish! If anyone is following, let me know if you want translations as well. If not, wait until I get the translation widget going!

Alright how long ago did I post about shutting this thing down??? IT’S BEEN THREE FREAKING DAYS!!!! And I’m already scheming on something new! I guess I couldn’t stop blogging after all haha
And isn’t it funny how once you decide to stop something you get all of these new ideas and inspiration!!??? Maybe it was the relief and the thought of not having that load on my shoulders that released all my anxiety.
Anywayssssss, I will shut this blog down for sure, but I’m working on something new here and once it’s ready I’ll share it with anyone who is interested!
I know I don’t post many pics of myself on here (too selfcounscious!), but here’s one. Just noticed this morning how long my hair has gotten lately! I like!
Well not exactly, but this might be the end of my blog… Yea sadly but true I think I’m going to shut this thing down. I have had no inspiration what so ever lately and it’s not giving me anything… All I feel is anxiety, stress, and pressure to post. Most of the times I feel like I’m posting the same stuff over and over… I read one of my Swedish blogs this weekend and that’s when I think I decided that I’m done! It talked about what my/your place is in the blog world. I don’t feel like my blog really contributes to anyone or anything and that my blog doesn’t have an significant place… I feel like no one is reading it so then what’s the point really!? That’s when it hit me. I’m done.
I’m going to give it a week or so and feel it out but this might be the last post you’ll see on here! If I miss it I might start another blog but I probably will do that one in Swedish…
Sometimes I rather go our for happy hours then actual dinners. Such a great way to finish off a work day! I have a few favorites in town but the other day I tried out a fairly new place in Steamboat that I’ve only been to twice before. It’s called The Laundry and is actually in an old laundry building downtown. It’s usually pretty expensive (for my taste at least) but their happy hour is actually really good. Cheap apps and wine is charged by the hour. (Meaning if it’s 4.30pm a glass is $4.30 and so on). They also make their own liquor so their drinks are apparently amazing. Sadly, I’m pretty boring when it comes to drinks and mostly stick with wine or beer.
I love having four seasons. Who doesn’t love to see the different colors that you get with each seasonal change? When we were on vacation we played with the thought of moving there because how great wouldn’t it be to have white beaches and clear blue water in your backyard?! But I don’t think I could do it. It was way to humid there for me. 80 degrees and humid feels completely different from 80 degrees and dry climate like we have here in Colorado. And I also like when we go from one season to the next. For example, I like having snow on Christmas and would be completely unaware what month it is at all times if all I experienced was 70-80 degrees weather!
Here is my pic of the day! Love how everything is getting so nice and green down here in the valley, whereas there is still a lot of snow on the mountain. Contrasts!
Here are finally some pictures from our honeymoon. As I’m sure I have already mentioned, we have an amazing time. I could post a million pictures from the vacation but I realize that gets tedious in the long run. So I have chosen my absolute favorites. Also, I wish I could take credit for the pictures but they are all taken by my very talented husband! I can tell a difference between my pictures (taken by my cell phone) and his pics (taken by a good camera) on the overall quality. He also has more of an artistic eye than I do. I just point and shoot!
I’m not going to ramble on anymore about this. Instead I will just let the pictures speak for themselves!
Here are some great thoughts from a great friend of mine!
For those of you who don’t speak Swedish, her post is about why we do what we do, and the importance or questioning our daily live and surrounding. Why do we do certain things? Why do we work where we do? Why do we hang our with the people we hang out with?
As she mentions, and I completely agree, it’s important to look at these things once in a while to analyze our daily habits. Habits that might need to be broken for you to live a more fulfilling life. I know I can easily get stuck in a rut and sometimes is hard to break free from something you are used to doing every day.
Her best quote in the post is “Varför jobbar vi fem dagar och är ledig två när de allra flesta jag pratar med hellre skulle vilja ha det tvärt om? Varför?” (“Why do we work five days and are off two days when most people would rather be doing the opposite? Why?”)
That’s a great question! My dream is to, one day, be able to do the opposite!
What are your thoughts on this?
I’ve had this list ready for a bit but since I’ve been away on vacation for a week, with limited access to internet, I have not managed to post it yet. I got inspired by Linnea to make lists of fun things that I have discovered during the week. I love the idea, making the list, and sharing it with all of you! So here is my second one!
For those interested in the Swedish culture and language, check out these weird Swedish sayings. I had actually forgotten about a few of these!
My stomached literally dropped when I looked through this!
Made this delicious Paleo stir fry!
Almost finished this book series during vacation! Love these books, despite them being in the “teen” genre haha
One day I will do this with my Instagram pictures!
Already miss this place!
Share some fun things you have stumbled upon this week in the comments below! Love feedback!!!
Man it was hard to leave St. John yesterday!!! We have had such an amazing week. We got super lucky with the weather. We had sunny days and some clouds usually rolled in dunring the afternoons which was really nice since it cooled everything off. It has been super hot and humid (which is nice to an extent. I like the dry climate in Colorado tho). I don’t want to write one super long post and bore you all to death, so I’m going to split it up in a few posts.
So when we left the island yesterday it was raining. Perfect day to leave! Once we got to the aitport we found out that our plane was about an hour delayed. Not a great start since we only had an hour layover in Atlanta. The good thing about this was we were not in a huge rush to get back since we both could take an extra vacation day if needed. So we set our mind to not arriving in Denver at 9pm like we were supposed to.
It all worked out for the best anyways. We got a super nice hotel, some meal vouchers and a good nice sleep in a very comfortable bed. So instead of driving three hours to Steamboat in the middle of the night we got into Denver this morning and arrived in Steamboat safe and sound around 2pm.
