Trip down to memory lane

Looking at old photographs is always fun & brings a lot of emotion & memories
Me at 1 year old
I don't have so much memory of this photo except that I hated the feeling of wearing the long and itchy gown.

yep, I was a girl scout ;))

Since I went to a catholic school from Kindergarten up to High School, all church activities are compulsory.

My best decorating tricks are fresh flowers, scented candles and plants.

I'm not really an alcohol consumer but I always see to it that I have a good bottle of champagne coz you never know when there's something worth to toast for!

Summer 2012... Enjoying Lake Vänern

This years summer wasn't really that great, that's just how it is in this part of the world but it didn't stop us to enjoy and make the best out of it! Last year we bought our first boat  it's a 19 ft daycruiser, we are pretty much satisfied with it. It has a spacious cuddy cabin, open cockpit and the cabin can accomodate two adults for sleeping, perfect for me & the hubz.
The Sauna and relax room seen from the water, one of the amenities in our area.
The hubz, my daughter & her bf seems  ready for a plunge
