Diary 264: My Christmas in Uddevalla, Sweden:)

my christmas week was spent at home in sweden. i almost got to see all the people i love. i did miss a certain wonderful therese, a linda, a janina and stepbrothers with stepmom though, hopefully i am going home soon again:) i only had 4 days and those ones were packed with activities. i am so happy i got to go home!!!

how was your christmas:)))??? tell me! your traditions? i wish hope that you had the best of days.

my stepfather with aunt picked med up at the airport and the  first stop was a food store which still carries all my fave candy:) see?

first meeting was with my lovely bestie friend pernilla:)) we went to this cafe in uddevalla called yerba! a cuteness place.

how uddevalla looks like during christmas times. beautiful right?

then it was time for me, mom, aunt with stepfathers for our tradition of the christmas game. such a fun but terribly stressful game. of course everyone wants as many gifts as possible! well maybe me most haha. all together we had almost 60 presents. i bought 11. they are all to be under or around £3-4 (ca 40 swedish crowns). 

action! to be able to choose/win a gift the dice needs to be a 6. a stepfather here got a 1:)) haha! the arm to the left is mine, my turn!

fell in love with this:

after the game. coffee, wine, brandy & cointreau:) all mine.

the morning of friday the 26th me and my friend pernilla created a long walk. it was ice ice cold, so cold that in the end i had no idea how to survive until we got inside. hallelujah! i had one hour of that. the whole walk was 2h and 20 minutes. but the beauty made it so worth it. bjursjön perfection.


such a week. i too got to see my godfather with a lovely anne. then my dad:)))) 3 hours in the middle of my christmas day! i have not seen my dad on christmas since i was a child! thank you thomas for driving me. my last evening, friday, i had hours and hours with my love sabina, thank goodness for your existence. 

happy to be back home but i wish wish to go back soon.

here is something beautiful from today
the sun was shining and i did a second walk. came home and played with my samsung galaxy and its editing software and then emailed the image to my iphone where i played with the app vsco cam.

during my walk this was on my mind:)

the realm of possibility

 "it is always expanding, it is never what you think it is. Everything around us was once deemed impossible. From the airplane overhead to the phones in our pockets to the choir girl putting her arm around the metalhead. As hard as it is for us to see sometimes, we all exist within the realm of possibility. Most of the limits are of our own world’s devising. And yet, every day we each do so many things that were once impossible to us."

- the realm of possibility, david levithan

see you tomorrow
