Ales Stenar... serenity!

 it's hard to even have words for places so beautiful... just have a look.....




















wow, what a cafe!!!

This beautiful place is a cafe... maybe the most beautiful cafe's I have ever been! It was amazing! in a beautiful garden full of so many flowers, vegetables, bumble bees! The girls ran and played... their Uncle pushed them on swings... the food was amazing! It was so relaxing and serene I could have stayed there for days... what a dream to have a cafe like this... one day..... 











I love love love these girls... these silly, happy, full of wonder girls... 











a stay at the Stars...

Isabelle is quite thrilled... she finally got the bedazzlie hair beady maker... she had just enough money at the toy store! Here Auntie Malin is beadazzling Isabelle's hair... 

 We had such a nice stay at our friends The Steirna's which means Stars... :-) I love it! They visited us in Florida not so long ago so the kids hit it off once we arrived to Sweden! It's always nice visiting them at their home! It's so so beautiful where they live... out in the peaceful countryside... so much room for the children to explore and play make believe.... 


a nice and quaint little tea party was in order.... I love Arvid's hat even!!! so handsome! :-) 

Then on our way back to Ystad we always pass by this fantasticly amazing church... I usually stop to look but this time we all stopped and walked all around for quite some time... We of course talk about death... burying people... what happens... different beliefs... spirits... the wind.... the Earth... how we have to be quiet when we are in cemeteries... respectful... it's quite beautiful... life... and death... old tombstones from 1700s... mingled with ones from the 90s...

magical forest hike...










ahhh... there is nothing quite like a good forest... the thud you feel below your feet... making you wonder what's happening below the mossy ground... The way the moss covers the big rocks like a big blanket of beauty. Our girls always become magical fairies... their curiosity makes our hearts so light. Letting children go explore a forest... something bigger than they can imagine... it's fantastic! Every hollow tree become a place where possibly a fairy slept the night before... do you think she took her things with her and moved to another home. what's that... a snail trail... could have been left over from the pixie dust... where do the trolls live... are trolls and fairies friends. can trolls fly... do the fairies help them... with the sparkly fairy dust... I want to be a fairy when I grow up... me too...
