My trip back home over the holidays got disrupted due to the drone activity at Gatwick, meaning that my flight got cancelled last minute and I had to scramble to find a flight out of London in time for Christmas that didn’t cost an arm and a leg.

Sadly, this also meant that my 8 day holiday turned into a 4.5 day manic visit, but I did my best to fill every minute with people I love and even though I didn’t get to spend as much time with them as I wanted to, at least I arrived home just in time to catch Santa ;)

This was my face exactly a year ago when I got the news that my amazing and incredible goddaughter Ylva had finally arrived into this crazy world.

Fast forward a year and here we are walking to her first birthday. Just like the avengers, the full squad (almost) was assembled to celebrate this little wolf’s first year on planet earth.

It’s crazy to think that when I started this blog in 2005, I had known the majority of these people for 3-4 years, and now we are travelling to Sweden from all over the world to celebrate the birthday of the first generation of…us!

It fills my heart with so much love and joy. I can’t wait for all the other birthdays of our mini-me’s in the future :)

Needless to say that it was a lovely affair and I truly wish we’d have more time than just a mere 24 hours to spend in Malmö with my favourite people.

Big happy first birthday Ylva! I love you to the moon and back for infinity. Nobody gives cuddles and kisses like you, just like nobody makes my heart grow quite like you <3

After their cancelled trip to London in August, I felt like I had to go and see them – especially now when they’ve officially moved to Malmö! It was also a good excuse to get some cuddles from my favourite little person and favourite elderly person <3


I’m gonna wear this badge with pride!

A short but sweet break filled with lots of happy moments with some of the people I love the most on this planet. I really hope we’ll be able to spend more weekend like this together.
