Two weeks ago, Conrad and I celebrated our three-year wedding anniversary with a little staycation at a charming hotel in the Stockholm archipelago. Though we are usually quite low-key about our anniversary, this year we felt like doing something a bit more special.

I was really anxious about flying with Winston, but other than a minor issue at customs in Stockholm (they couldn’t locate Winnie’s microchip, despite using about 4 different chip readers! […]

Hello and happy Tuesday!  As it was Martin Luther King Jr. day in the US, I decided to take Monday off from blogging as well.  I have to say, I missed you guys! So, I’m making it up to you with one final Sweden post, and even though I am so incredibly late on this, I thought I’d share our family’s Christmas! As you can see so far, the Girerd-Barclay’s are QUITE the party animals… […]
