Stockholm Lately

This city was pretty much made for this time of year. The light (when it is out), gives everything the most beautiful glow, and the glitter and garland everywhere make the city feel so cozy. Every time I walk outside I feel like recreating the part of Elf where he spins around and shouts, “I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it!”, because it’s just that beautiful!

Instead, I adopt the Swedish way of keeping all emotion to myself and carrying on with my day.  But I have been capturing a few pictures along the way. Since I am now a Swedish speaker I translated some of the captions I could manage into Swedish. Enjoy!
