Celebrating Hedwig 70 years and Karin <3 Anders 11 years! | #HappyBirthday #Anniversary

9th of May my mother-in-law turned 70! We celebrated her today in Valdemarsvik, together with her son Roland with family, her sister Solweig and us. Photo by Mika from last Summer. Today, also, is a special day for Karin and me. We have been a couple 11 years and engaged for six years! Hooray for us!

Catching up with days of births! | #Family

Today, we had a great family day! A day of days! Since Nadine spent Xmas holidays, her birthday and Karin’s birthday in Eidsvoll, Norway, we had a Sunday, catching up with all these three birthdays! Bonus grandma Hedwig arrived at 11am with Jippii the Eurasier. Fika, dinner (topz, Karin!), ice-cream and all that, of course. Thanks Hedwig for the food! And, then – gift exchange! Nadine got an Xmas gift already at breakfast – two movie tickets! And the Quicken from Harry Potter as bracelet from bonus cousin Therése! Later, in the afternoon, Nadine spread her love and gifts around!…

Today! And all days! All ways! Ad Infinitum! | #LOVE

Valentine’s day. Valentindagen. Alla hjärtans dag. All heart’s day! Eight billion hearts. Human. Beyond that. On earth. In universe? Who knows? Some relations are more important than others. But there is only one love! Period.

Day 17 in November, Anno Domini 2016 – Enigma New Album, Family Happenings and A Friend’s Birthday | #blog101 #FlowOfLife #Enigma #Family #Annukka

I – Enigmas new album I have praised Enigma as a key part of my musical journey, all categories defined. It stands in its own right as something to always fall back to, in moments of turmoil and passages of joy. In short – it just is. Music for (my!) health, in its very core! I stumbled upon their new single some month ago, connecting the circle some 25 years back, with the new Sadeness II – reflecting back to their breakthrough single Sadeness I, 1990, and taking it to a “now”. And tonight, being quite much offline and not…

Lived In Solitude Today – Story Of Today Given Tomorrow | #blog366 #Status #SaturdayLove

Only me and the cats here, IRL, in our home today. But in distance, phonetalks with friends, conversations on stuff that really matters on FB webs, and chats with text, voice, images and video with family distributed, making solitude and ‘longiness’ (longing in loneliness) something manageable to carry! Longing for my full family to be in our house again! Mika and Mommy Karin back tomorrow, Nadine here next time Dec 29! I intend to blog on some findings I did today, for tomorrow, related to things that happenened Friday and that happens on Tuesday. And BTW … no TV today!…

L as in Loved Ones | #blog26 #wishlist

Let’s start off with some here-and-now pics. We are in Valdemarsvik for the weekend, arrived today with the full family, cats included. What we do and what happens – follow Karin on Instagram (@akrogirl)! I am sitting on the second floor of Karin’s mum’s lovely house. The Tablet shines. I have a little remote keyboard connected to it. Mindmapped where to take this posting. Directions. Loved ones! Yes. Family! But, before that – let’s make a little historical odyssey. All You Need Is Love – “it was 49 years ago today” Sgt. Pepper told the band to play! And, they…

B – as in Birthdays! (62!) | #blog26 #wishlist

I started yesterday with a blog challenge, with 26 wishes, from A to Z. It was my 50th celebration of earth rounds done around the sun, and now I feel being part of something I want to be in. The Wisdom Flow – for real. Maybe taken seriously, who knows? Anyways, now, it feels great! I am overwhelmed en masse from all the love bombing yesterday, primarily from my closest circle of family! Surreal, and so calm! You were there, so great, so full, so deep! Thank you Mika, Soto, Jippii, Deshi, Uchi, Nadine, Karin and Hedwig! Home, and then…

Hedwig Birthday at Grännäs Valdemarsvik | #blogg100 #Hedwig

We celebrated Hedwigs birthday at her home, eating cake and a very good dinner at her place, “Hedwigsborg”. Afterwards we enjoyed the early summer at the little beach in Grännäs with all in good restful spirit – Mika, Jippii the Eurasier, Karin, Hedwig, me. Thank you for a wonderful day!
