Back to Sweden!

I'm so happy to be home in chilly Stockholm again. I arrived yesterday after a 20 hour door to door travel (blah), and was greeted with sleety snowy yucky weather, Thanks Sweden! Didn't make me miss the gorgeous sun and heat of Florida at all, (not)! I was hoping it was going to be Spring when I got home... my plan didn't work out too well.

 Even though I had 3.5 weeks to enjoy with my family and friends, time just flew by. I'm not even sure what we did, I'm not even that tan, haha, but I sure had a really nice time. But it will be nice to get back into my usual rutins... I feel bad that I haven't been working full time on my illustration jobs. I hope all my wonderful clients understand that I needed a little break. Back to normal on Monday! I also have been missing my boyfriend something awful. Thank goodness for Skype! But even so, I was just overly giddy to see him yesterday. tee hee!

Want to see a little glimpse of my trip? I'm sorry for the bad quality of my ancient camera, and the lack of interesting photos, but this is all I got. Photography isn't really my thing, I'll have to take the bf and his fancy camera with me on my next trip!

Hogwarts and insane crowds

Hogsmeade was just too adorable, unfortunately just a bit too crowded

I must confess to being a bit of a Harry Potter dork. I didn't buy a cape though!

Even more cuddling and what looks like, a nice Floridian glow.

That's it! Back to work tomorrow. I got one last day of vacation to be lazy and catch up on sleep... I love Sundays.

Looks like you had a lovely time. Oooooh I totally want to visit Universal Studios just for the Harry Potter part. Too bad it was so crowded.

We went to Universal just for Harry. I wish it had been bigger, and less crowded. We did go during Spring Break, so our fault.

Looks like you had a fun holiday. I'd enjoy Hogsmeade as well, but not those crowds! Very cute pooches :)
