Diving in, head first 😊. .
.
I’m surprised how well Lizzie is doing with the snow and the cold. Sure we protect her A bit as she doesn’t have much fur, but she’s really gping for it, running, diving in, being chased by the others,... not a single time did she refuse to go out and she doesn’t ask to be picked up. There are only two things on her warming-wishlist: her sleeping spot by the heating after the walk and sleeping under my blankets at night 😊. She will be so happy when the sun touches the floor of our house again! .
.
Oh and that sweater I’m making isn’t really working yet. Perhaps instead of adjusting the pattern, I could make one based on measurements? I wanted to have it finished before her birthday but that’s already this sunday 🙈.

Running around like a headless chicken... .
.
Oona had a serious obsession with the rubber chicken 😀. She loved stealing it from Lizzie, showing off to Mogwai and then hiding it in the forest to quickly retrieve it before they found it. Hilarious!

Remember this spot? It’s a different world now!⛄️
.
.
Around New Year, @hungrynike posted the question “What are your Instagram goals?” And at that time I had no idea what it could be although it’s the only app that I visit almost daily. When contemplating my plans, there is one word that stands out more than ever: connection. I’m the kind of person who feels fine being alone or with a small group of great friends, I even need periods of solitude to be at my best but I value and cherish the deep connections that I’ve been blessed with in my life.
.
.
Back to this tiny digital spot that I occupy and I’m thinking how this too can be a place of connection. I have met great people last year, all through Instagram and my goal is to connect and dissolve the boundaries between real life and the digital life. I prefer to get to know the real you, focus on authentic collaborations and connecting stories. I preserve my spot to be a place that isn’t about numbers or facts but about life, vision and inspiring eachother. I want it to be even more about connection again.
.
.
Perhaps I should write my own manifesto 😄.

When we moved to Sweden we wanted living a slower life than what we were used to. To us, that mostly means spending time outdoors every day and less time in traffic jams. What it didn’t mean is working less or living with less intesity, goals or dreams. We both love our jobs and we get a ton of joy from it but it sure feels great to be able to spend that lunchbreak in nature or to start the day with a swim in the lake and it’s those moments that put everything in perspective. I don’t want to run through life with empty wasted seconds, I want them to be filled with joy, laughter, friendship, connection and love. Even when sometimes you lose what you love or try but fail. I’d rather cry a bit over a broken heart than having nagging regrets for the rest of my life. .

“Let’s see what that icing tastes like...”😋
.
.
I recently shared a bit about lenses and how every lens adds its specific character to a photograph. These two were shot with [maybe take a guess first...?]
a 80-200mm zoomlens (one you won’t see here often) and the Burnside 35 mm, and although everyone will has a favourite, there is no right or wrong when picking lenses, it’s what you do with it, the light you capture and the story that you create. Your weapon of choice is what fits you.
Since I try to spend as little time as possible at my computer, I try to shoot in a way that needs minimal adjustments but also the option to play with it if I feel like experimenting. I love to dream and create things rather than ‘fix’ them (and sometimes I have assignments with a strict deadline and no time to be editing for hours). To me, getting the image that I envision starts with lens choice and camera settings 😊.

While I’m typing this, we’re making some lunch and fika to go. It has been snowing all night so we woke up in a white fairytale that is luring us outside (did you see the video in our stories?). So we’re off now, see you later!

This photo was shot with @seeinanewway (burnside 35) and the bandana is by @muttcloth .

The three wise dogs from the north. What would they have seen? In which direction will the stars guide them?
.
.
They don’t bring gold, frankincense or myrrh, these wise creatures, but they carry and spread joy every single day of their existence!

Eye candy winter light. It must be like snow sugar and a topping of peach and strawberry flavour with sprinkles of dark chocolate.
.
.
I wonder if there are creatures that can taste light.
