Last weekend we had a full on, whirlwind trip to Stockholm which is a fantastic city. We were greeted with blue skies all weekend. I’ll be posting a few of our adventures in the next few weeks. Monday, I took the day off to edit photos and catch up on those things that pile up while you’re away like laundry and emails. The rest of the week was work, blog, work, blog, work, blog if I’m honest. My gift certificate for the Royal Opera House arrived from the team at Malibu. Jorge and I were planning to see Swan Lake as part of the #BestSummerEver project, but it was sold out unfortunately. So, instead, we will see a double show – Apollo and MidSummer Night’s Dream on Saturday night.
How about you? What have you been up to this week? Any exciting plans for this weekend?
