Nice things happen to me in Sweden – Who says birthdays only come once a year?
Sommartiden hey hey! And the summer just keeps getting better and better. We hadn’t seen my Swede’s godmother and family since last July and they live just over the bridge from us in Lidingö. Don’t get me wrong. We tried but folks are busy. And would you believe they pulled out the champagne in July…
Nice things happen in Sweden – more summer fun
Sweden, summer and water. 2 of the 3 Swedes pictured above had never sailed before. Sailing can be tiring. Then we went up to the cliffs where some of us jumped in the water. What a lovely day. Nice things happen to me in Sweden.
Swedish summer—–so far, so good. Nice things happen in Sweden.
It’s not a Swedish summer to me without Daphne’s annual 4th of July party in Halmstad. Tons of American flavor mixed in with international cuisine and people. Only Daphne could pull this all together. Next indication it is Swedish summer is after beach in the solgården at Hotel Tylösand. And a day on the water…
Nice things happen to me in Sweden – The Valborg night bonfire that wasn’t
We had traditional Varlborg night food of salmon (surprise), potatoes (surprise) and asparagus (family tradition). This was to be my first Valborg night celebration.

Nice things happen to me in Sweden – Danny Saucedo hosting Melodifestivalen
The first time I saw Danny Saucedo was the year he competed in Melodifestivalen with In the Club. I was an instant fan. I thought he got robbed when he took second place narrowly missing his chance to compete in Eurovision. So it comes as no surprise that I’m thrilled that he is co-hosting Melodifestivalen…

Nice things happen to me in Sweden – Fiesta Friday
When a group of cool ladies get together we can’t help but have fun, right? Add a potluck with a Mexican theme and it was caliente. We even had a mascot (pictured above). Everything, with the exception of the La Neta tortillas, was home made and absolutely delicious. Don’t forget the sangria, margarita’s, Kaluha and…
Nice things happen to me in Sweden – Melodifestivalen part 1 with friends
It’s that time of year when me and my Swede are hooked on SVT1 on Saturday evenings to watch Melodifestivalen see who will represent Sweden in Eurovision. For us it was funny right from the start: And we all thought Mary would at least go to the second chance round: But she didn’t. Even still…
Nice things happy to me in Sweden – Eat! Eokaffärren – The beginning of a beautiful relationship
I first laid eyes on Eat! when walking home from a dinner by the water in Vasastan but I soon forgot about it. Then the other night when walking home from Lidl me and my Swede spotted Eat! and both thought: we need apple cider vinegar. So we dash in, the cute tall slim brother…
