Green, green, green …

With every day it feels more like spring and summer are here for good now – my nose got its first sunburn of the year! 😀

As mentioned before, the absolute spring color for me is green. So that’s the color that can be found all over the apartment… 🙂

One might think that candles in the bathroom are unnecessary
as we don’t have a bathtub and therefore no romantic baths…

… but who says you that folding laundry can’t be romantic either? 😉

Spice up your life!

Today we had dinner in the city and we were not sitting INSIDE the restaurant but OUTSIDE – first time this year! And it felt amazing 🙂 spring is so wonderful! It’s amazing how bright and light it is outside. These days the sun rises a bit after 5am and sets around 9pm – it surprises and confuses me again every day 😉

As every season, spring is great for decoration. However, apart from my spring-prep post I haven’t shared any of the “springness” here. As I’m slowly getting back to my usual energy level after the first weeks of new job, I hereby announce some spring-posts-to-come-this-week 😉

An absolute must have during spring and summer are herbs. I do not have a very green thumb so I’m not a big fan of buying more than two pots of basil in the supermarket (which I’ll usually throw away after two weeks because they just didn’t want to be with me and my not-green-thumb 😉 ). This year it’s different – we went to a real garden center and bought five (!!) different herbs and are really putting effort into them: not only when it comes to the right amount of water and the perfect place but also the decoration 🙂 Continue reading

Let’s start the holidays!

Today evening we officially start into this year’s Easter Holiday – one more reason to go over the top with spring decorations!

We will spend it at home, fixing stuff in the apartment, relax after all our visitors, enjoy the spring in the air and do some Easter stuff 😉

In order to get into the right mood already before this short holiday, I did some decoration last week: 2 Easter Trees 🙂 It turned out to be two of them as I took my Austrian Easter Tree decoration with me when moving to Sweden, so I wanted to use it. And then I also wanted to have a Swedish Easter Tree.

In Austria, we put colored egg shells on our Easter Trees 🙂

Livet är underbart #7

When I woke up this morning it was white outside. The night brought some snow. And as much as I love snow – this morning, I took the blanket and pulled it over my head. It’s time for spring. That means blue sky, golden sun, warmer temperatures, first flowers. NO SNOW.

So, what better there is than a past-photo-blog with some really summery pictures from a picnic in a biiiig park in Vienna. Oooh, right now I can’t even imagine how wonderful it must be to go outside without 500 layers of clothes. Or putting on summer dresses. Or staying outside long evening. Continue reading
