The warmth of family and friends

5 Dec

I’ve just returned home from a fabulous time at my sister’s wedding. The preparations and festivities leading up to the big day were filled to the brim with laughter, love and a lot of elbow grease. It’s a very special feeling when two beautiful and talented families come together with the intention to honor and celebrate love- it is the core of our human experience, the honoring of our larger purpose, the real meat of life.

I don’t have any photos from the big day yet, but the rehearsal dinner the night before was magical in and of itself. With the Smörgåsbord taking center stage and the house as full with friends from near and far (we did have a 2 guests from Malmö!) the evening was one that will be remembered for years to come.

My parents home- i love their style

It’s the time of year when candle light and bonfires transform space into dreamlike vignettes of light, love and laughter.

And the evening would not be complete without seven delicious cookies (including gluten free pepparkakor)! My sister made them using the basic cookie dough recipe found in Rutiga Kokboken for Sju sorters kakor.

Happy second week of Advent!

Jag har precis återvänt hem från min systers fantastiska bröllop. Förberedelserna och festligheterna som ledde fram till den stora dagen var fyllda med skratt, kärlek och gnabbande. Det är en väldigt speciell känsla när två vackra och begåvade familjer binds samman med föresatsen att hedra och fira kärlek. Jag har inga foton från själva bröllopet ännu men middagen kvällen före var även den magisk. Med smörgårsbordet i mitten och huset fullt med vänner från när och fjärran blev det en kväll att minnas år framöver.
