this was a beautiful day... a day we will remember.
do you have certain days that you really HAVE!
a day where you just eat up every bit... every crumb!
you can just sit there and think... I am lucky to be here... to be me!
this was one of those days!

Pappa Bear is from this sweet little village in the southern part of Sweden... Sövde. It's small, it's wholesome, it's beautiful!
We both, even though totally different, grew up a little similar...
the way kids need to grow up!
being free...
he often tells me stories of wandering in the forest as a small boy... exploring and enjoying life. There are often stories of the lake... and this is just where we went this day...
It was so fun to show our girls this place... for him to tell us how this very lake that our legs are dipped into freezes so hard in the winter that he would skate all day upon!

it's beautiful to have a gentle childhood... to have happy memories of simple times... we had this... our wish for our girls too... is to have just this...

then a little stop by the Cider Mill... was the ending to perfection! we sampled the most delicious juice I have ever tried... apple juice... something so simple could be something so amazing!
It tastes so crisp, so clean, you can't help but imagine this glass you are drinking a glass of pure apples... you think of the apples on the trees... the apples being smashed, popped, delicious scrumptious bits of YOW!
I wish I could pack my suitcase with 20 bottles!!! ration them out to a glass a day... but then it wouldn't be special now would it...
