December is finally here! While Sweden is being covered in snow, Boston has yet to see even a single flake. I don’t understand why my great-grandmother’s family ever left Västra Götaland.
Also, Advent is here! That means lots and lots of baking! I spent this weekend baking over one hundred Pepperkakor. For the next 24 hours the apartment smelled absolutely wonderful! Hopefully, I’ll manage to bake Lussekatter tomorrow!
This picture–which serves as inspiration for me to get out my Swedish language textbooks–is from Gamla Stan, taken on a particularly frigid morning this past spring.
