Swedish Midsummer and daughter leaving for USA

The longest day of the year, Midsummer. Herring, potatoes, chives, pie, strawberries and cream, a cold lake, beer and schnapps, sun and rain.. Sweden – as Swedish as it can be.



And she. Ungen min. Dearest daughter is leaving for California for a couple of weeks. Follow her blog here.

    It’s a cliche to say, I know, but there are good reasons for why certain observations are made repeatedly over the generations. What I’m talking about is your beautiful daughter who, seemingly moments ago, was a child. (I liked how she described herself as a 40 year old + cranky 5 year old!) Seriously, wasn’t she a little girl with glasses like, yesterday?

    On the eve of Tova’s departure, I am reminded of my own daughter’s packing ordeal before her first semester of college. That’s when I discovered that she had “27 pairs of pants” and let’s not even speak about the shoes! Good luck with all of that. :^)

      O ha ha, 27 pairs of pants! This one has repacked about 20 times now, and is still concern if she chose the right pairs or not. Not to mention the concern for all practical things like power adapter etc. Things will go fine, adapter or not. And the butterflies will be dissipated.

      Yes indeed, the little girl with glasses sure seems like not long ago.

    This looks so lovely and festive! I looked at her blog, but unfortunately, my swedish isn’t good enough yet. She definitely looks like you though!

    Looks like the perfect midsummer settings & a very beautiful table :) Og vildt med din datter! Jeg tænker også på hende som en lille pige med briller/glasses – good luck with her!
