Winter

”Katarina, Katarina – look outside”. My eyes flicker, I try to get them to focus but have a hard time seeing anything. It is 7 o´clock and as always Martin jumped out of bed earlier than me. I manage a ”What is it?” looking up and seeing his face staring out the window, continuing ”Is it snow?”. A small ”yes” form on his lips. 

 

Stepping out of bed looking out wakes me up immediately and I hop out into the garden (dressed only in my pyjamas and my fake fur) by pure excitement. I look over my shoulder to see if a neighbour is watching me. When secure I shoot some photos of the small snowflakes coming down on my parents garden. Squeeky snow builds on the grass and I smile, happy that winter finally is here.

There is something magical about the snow. Some don´t like it at all, but I think if I didn´t get to experience it every year I would miss it. I have never missed a year with snow! How odd to think about it. Last year we spend 3 months in Peru, but that was after 2 months with lots of snow in Grythyttan.

After some breakfast and blogging Martin and I head out for a walk in the snow. I wear my new shoes that I bought this week in Västervik during Christmas sales. We walk towards Uvgölen, a small forest lake close to where I grew up and meet my aunt and cousins child out on a winter ride. We have a stop and eat some lussebullar and drink coffee before we continue.

I am still at my parents, heading home to Stockholm today.

  1. Amazing shots!! I get so jealous haha it’s still green and brown here. And the photo of the dining room looks so cozy with the candle, the cookies and the red hearts!
    Enjoy it! :))

  2. Fina bilder! Jag gillar snön. Det blir ljusare och känns nästa mindre kallt än när det är några få plusgrader och regnar och blåser…
