Oh, we bought a house too

So, this wasn’t particularly planned of us. Well. My parents have been talking about building a second summer house on the next lot for quite some time and well. This happened instead.

There are lots of things to do, and over time I’ll take you on a tour of the inside and tell you all the things we’re going to renovate. We won’t actually see the house until next year, because, well, we’ve already left Sweden this time around, but dad’s doing some work on it before we get there.

Our outside todo list:
– Re-finish all the windows
– Re-paint the house (red of course, but this will happen in a few years, no rush here)
– Build a new patio at the back. Dad is on this project
– Clear out some of the leftover piles of wood n stuff, and try to make a summer meadow out of parts of the garden.

It’s weird, and exciting, and I can’t wait for next year when we have our very own place. It’s going to be a blast!

Pyramid Hill

I had one weekend off in April and I decided I wanted to go on an outing. So I forced a few friends of ours to go to this fancy schmancy airbnb in Pyramid Hill, a few hours north of Melbourne. Turns out I really didn’t take many photos that weekend, except when we headed up the nearby hill (not the pyramid one though, but you can spot that one in the background of a couple of shots!) to do an engagement session for the two newly engaged people on the trip. The proper couples photos will be shared on my proper photo blog (cause that’s what proper people do), but I took some behind the scenes too. I mean, who doesn’t need photos of Ange and Eric looking all weird n stuff. As you do.

Gippsland, February

This is how far behind I am right now. I finally finished editing up these photos from a February weekend away last week. I mean, 6 months is an acceptable turn around time, right? Anyway. We rented this cottage that was perched on the side of a steep hill, with views for days. We literally watched weather happen far away at sunset, drank wine, chatted and read books. We’re turning into old people and I like it. That’s all.

2018

It’s end of August. This year has disappeared in a blur. It’s been a year of extremes, of highs and lows. Of amazing people no longer here with us, and of new people in our lives. I’ve been working like crazy, and my little business has bloomed from just a side project to something quite big. And now, for the first time all year, I have a few weeks that aren’t filled with plans. Where I can sit back, take in all that’s happened, maybe reflect, and maybe just appreciate what I have.

So, there might be a bunch of blog posts happening over the next 4 weeks. I wish I’d keep going after that, but once my wedding season kicks in, it’s so hard to have time for anything else. We’ll see though. I will try. Anyway. Prepare for random times in my life from this year in unordered blog posts. Boom!
