Spring is here!

At The Coffeehouse

Swedes are obsessed with the weather. It has everything to do with the long and cold winters we get up here. So when spring finally arrives we do our best to enjoy it. And yesterday spring did arrive to Stockholm! And here is proof. This is Charlotta, Madeleine and Anki, who is kissing Charlotta's baby, Molly on the head. I met them at the Kaffebönan café at Åbyplan in Västerhaninge. It was only 6°C but the sun was shining from a clear blue sky and that's all we need!

I learned long ago, having been brought up by Swedish parents, that Swedes can be stubborn (I'm not, of course...well, a little. I'm 1/4 Norwegian!).

But I'm not sure even Swedes should be subjecting themselves to cold such as this; sun or no.

Cute bunch of folks, though!
