One of the things I love the most is spending time in our country house and every season has got it´s perfection to it. It´s almost December and the temperatures are still mild, there are some leaves left and even though it´s hardly any daylight the full on darkness winter brings in Sweden has not gotten to me quite yet. The weekends might not be as Autumn like as in these pics but I´d love to go for that feeling.
I do get comments and sometimes emails wishing that I should get more personal with the blog. It will however probably stay the way it is despite of that as I more find this space a place where I collect and share my inspiration. However I do understand the comments, I personally love blogs that are sharing and open about what is going on in their lives. You can be both an interior & lifestyle blogger at the same time of course. I´ll try to become a little bit better, bare with me. As a start I will share a pic with you of the love of my life, my family. It´s a miracle that all four of us are even in one pic as both our kids love to run off when we occasionally try to get a family one. I guess many of you recognize the situation
With this I wish you all a great weekend!
Thanks for the pic C & J xx
Back from five truly amazing days in France. I got to properly celebrate my father´s birthday, spend some precious time with my dear sister and family and just relax before what is looking to become a very busy and fun Autumn. I love Autumn with it´s crisp air and changing colors, so will try to enjoy every minute of it before the days up here in the North are getting darker.
Thank you mom & dad for an unforgettable holiday xx

Spending my last lazy days of holiday enjoying time alone with the kids. We sleep late, have long breakfasts, go back to bed again for a bit and properly start the day sometime after lunch seeing friends and saying hi to the sun. It has been the most amazing summer and it is just about now I´m getting that feeling of being excited to go back to work again. Lots of fun things coming up, new cooperations and hopefully also a new office to go to. But first, we will go back to bed for a bit again.

It has really been an amazing first week of holiday with the sun finally joining us and now we are about to (hopefully) get even more of that going to France for 3 weeks. Can´t wait to see if the house we have rented is as good as we are hoping it to be (sneak peak here), but no matter what the thing I´m most looking forward too is just spending time with the family and friends. I will bring the laptop so that I´ll be able to blog if I can´t resist, but if you don´t see me here of course you are welcome to join me on Instagram @annagillar . Enjoy the summer everyone! And thank you so much for being here & a warm welcome to all the new followers, really excited so many of you have found your way over here!
Ps. Burglars, this was not an invitation. Our house is like Fort Knox and we have friends watching so no attention from your end needed. Thank you. Ds.

I love Saturday mornings, still a whole weekend to come and everyone in the family in their best moods filled with ideas of what to do. Unfortunately our plans got cancelled since our friends son (our godson) got sick but that leaves us with a clean agenda to fill with whatever comes to mind. High up on the list, take a boat to one of Stockholm´s many islands for a day in the archipelago. Too seldom do that even though there are several boats running to beautiful destinations everyday. Wishes of a great weekend to all of you!
