Status update from Chicago O’Hare

IMG_4519.JPG

Checking in from Chicago live at the moment. We made it safely here from Atlanta. Soon we board our plane to Copenhagen aka I’ll be in Malmö, Sweden in no time. Beyond excited to hug everyone. The past month has been somewhat crazy and hectic so I haven’t spent much time with mom and T but they are stuck with me now so I can finally talk their ears off ;) HUGS and CHEERS

My College Graduation!

WOW. Monday May 8th, 2017, is the best day of my life so far. Such an emotional, happy, exciting, and incredible day. I cannot believe that four years of hard work has finally come to an end. Four years, three colleges, two countries. I finally have a degree. I graduated with Magna Cum Laude. Best of all, was all the love and support from family and friends. I wish I could re-live this day forever. I am incredibly proud of myself and my accomplishment, but also so very thankful for my support system and my amazing mother. Nothing would have been made possible without her <3

I don't think I have ever had such a wide smile in every single picture from a whole day before.

My pretty cap! I poured white glitter on paper after applying Elmer's glue with a paintbrush, then sprayed adhesive spray to attach the paper to the cap. The flowers I glued on with Elmer's glue as well.

Peace out GSU! Well in August haha!

The Dean giving a speech!

Nervous but ready to walk across the stage! I also spent my time in line taking selfies, why not?

Smiling and shaking hands!

WOOT WOOT I DID IT!!

Champs <3 These two had done such an incredible job throwing me a party, prepping the food, cooking and cleaning, and a million other things to make sure my day was amazing. So thankful!

Mama Miles <3

Mom and T had decorated the dining room so nicely <3

These stunning flowers are from "Mina Favoriter i Sverige" aka my favorite people in Sweden, of course they would sign the card like that instead of just putting their names on it, haha. Such a nice surprise to get flowers delivered <3

I love decorating the table and make flower arrangements. So much fun.

Yet another beautiful bouquet from Sweden <3

Prepping prepping!

Cuties <3

Hello beautiful people <3

I totally forgot to take pictures of the actual dinner which was my mom's delicious lasagna. No one can make lasagna like her, it will leave you speechless. But here is the desert spread, as if we did not eat enough already, hehe.

Hello beautiful people part two <3

A huge thanks to each and every one of you for being part of my big day. I love you guys!

And then the night came to an end. Beyond happy and at a loss for words. I am the luckiest <3

Lost headphones and pretty spring flowers

Spring Flowers, Voluspa Candles, Klong Vase-13.jpg

I am sure you are familiar with my love for this beautiful Klong vase if you have read my blog before, you can see it in older posts here and here.

Mom made such a gorgeous spring flower arrangement. I love lilies.

Voluspa candles are by far some of my favorite. Not only do they smell amazing but they are so pretty! I could only find the Prosecco Bellini one in a larger size which you can find here, and the white glass one you can find here. -adlinks

I ordered this pone case on Etsy because I thought it was so cute but it already broke... So frustrating when that happens.

Today I had a somewhat productive morning until I got to school and realized my headphones were gone. They are always in the same pocket of my backpack (yes I use a backpack, I refused for a couple of years until finally giving in). I turned my backpack inside and out and could still not find them. So strange, since I typically do not loose stuff (knock on wood!!). Managed to find them on Amazon with prime so at least I will have new ones arriving Friday. Anyone else who feels naked and strange without headphones?

Today I started my day like any other day, snoozing to my alarm. I was so mad at myself this morning for booking a Flywheel class but once I got up, and worked out, I was beyond happy. My endorfins were all over the place and I got SO much done before work, best feeling ever. I also got my grades back, four A's and two B's, wihooooo! Great day. Hope you all have a happy Friday <3

Happy Thanksgiving

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving spent with loved ones! I know I did <3

Such pretty flower arrangements, the host had done an incredible job.

How cute is this turkey made out of napkins? Also, the candle holder/flower holder is from one of my favorite brands KLONG. You can move it around and also have just lights in them. I want...
