10 on 10 April

This past month, has been very hectic for me. Many exciting and amazing photo assignments, workshop design for a good friend, and connection to like minded women with passion for photography. I feel lucky on so many levels, but also a bit wornout. That is why I have chosen to focus my 10 on 10 on a trip to Bräkne-Hoby in Sweden that we took last summer. We have some really good friends who have a small house there, with no electricity. Here we go to unplug, recharge, and reconnect.

With these photos I hope to remind you of how important it is for us humans to connect with nature, each other, and a simple lifestyle.

Our friends neighbors have horses, and when we visit, the girls alway get to go riding.

Because there is no wifi, electricity etc. we have time for other things, like cooking for hours. Every meal turns into restaurant quality masterpieces, like this slow cooked pork.

Every morning we baked buns on the BBQ for breakfast, and they were delicious. Nothing better than a freshly baked bun with melted butter.

Lunch was cooked over the openfire. You work up an appetite when you are outside all day, and you really appreciate to sit down and watch your lunch get ready.

The woods around the house were full of wild raspberries, which we used for a fabulous dessert.

We not only found raspberries, but also delicious mushrooms. Our friends are experts on all the different kinds of mushrooms, and our dinner turned into a michelin star meal.

I believe childhood memories has to include at least one evening around a campfire. Our daughters are spoiled on that account, but it seems like they love it as much as we do.
