It is Friday and the weekend is almost about to begin. How has your week been so far? We can barely believe it is already Friday. It has been a pretty hectic week we have to admit. We are still catching up on work after our last eventful days in Amsterdam, the move to Sweden and to start to get things organized over here. We want to give our appologies for you who have sent us e-mails and messages. We promise we will reply as soon as we can!
After some days back in good old Sweden we have to say it feels unsual good to be here. Both of us have always been on the run wanting to go somewhere. We are still on the run but now it is on completely new terms. We love Sweden but trying to explain it we have always had a trapped feeling while we have been living here. For us there has been something calling us out in the world. It is our nature and we have always been eager to go out there, explore, meet new people, see new places, put ourselves in new situations and gain new experiences. This is simply how we are and our heart desires have always been to have that freedom to do all those things, not to be tied up anywhere. We are really amazed of the journey we have undergone this spring. We have been seeking all the answers within ourselves, we have tried to quiet our minds as much as we can, we have chosen love, been grateful, stayed present and have had universe to guide us. Now we are creating our lives we have always dreamt of. To be able to come and go as we wish to. To get the contrasts that we need in our lives and that make us feel alive. Sweden is always going to be a place we call home but we see ourselves as the citizens of the world. This time being back it occured to us that nothing has been this beautiful before. Yesterday when we walked on the street outside the house we were asking ourselves if it is just us but have the surroundings always been this gorgeous? This for us was just a proof that our minds have switched completely. To stay present and to be conscious of everything that is surrounding you there is simply nothing but beauty to be seen. It is truly amazing and you have no idea how much we appreciate to be where we are, right now at this very second. :)
Another great benefit to be home at our parents is their food processor. It somehow makes the smoothies so creamy and delicious. On a sunny morning like today there is nothing better than to enjoy this refreshing creation. We call it Creamy Berry Bliss simply because it brings a big smile on your face. :)

“We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving. And we all have some power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing.”
