Dreaming, dreaming of this lovely boutique hotel in Sweden that promises idyllic afternoons in the fresh country air, delectable dishes and a warmth and hospitality that time has forgotten . . .

Omg! The pink headboard is darling. Seriously coveting a total redesign. Just have to convince the 'rents. :P

So pretty -- can I join you? I would love to eat that delicious, fresh fruit, then set off for a long bike ride and just explore...

im back..

hi... i thought i would come on here and ask a few creative bloggers that i love and follow for some help.... i also just posted about it on my blog.

im going to vegas this weekend with 4 other girls... one just turned 26 yesterday and the other turns 30 a few days after we get back...

so, the other 3 of us wanted to do something a little special for them while we're there.... probably just pay for dinner but we will all prob give them a little gift individually as well and thats where i need help.

we are all new friends so we're not super close... just in the stages of getting to know each other.

i dont want anything over the top or expensive. something just sweet, thoughtful and creative... and i was wondering with all the neat things you come across or just your creativity, if you have any little ideas as a sweet gift for a friends birthday. something small and different, no what i mean? one of my friends is going to give them a card with a starbucks gift card inside but i just wanted something a little more special.

would love to hear your thoughts! would realllly appreciate it!!!

thank you so much for taking the time to read this. xo.

This hotel looks simply idyllic. The dining room looks like the perfect place to relax at dinner time and have a conversation with lovely people. And bicycles for an afternoon ride around the area? Sounds heavenly!

Nobody does a gracious life inside like the Swedes. IMO.

Excuse me, but why do Swedes make everything look better? Seriously. Fashion, boutique hotels, hair... What is their secret?! I need to book a room here so I can get to the bottom of this.

Eeeeeeek! It's like you're reading my mind. This is my Swedish dream come true! I've been enjoying all of your travel posts and I think we may have been separated at birth. :) I wish I had known about Ca Maria Adele when I went to Venice. It's drop dead gorgeous. I also went to Gordon Ramsay (the restaurant) at the London in NY and thought it was one of the best meals I ever had in NY. It was when it first opened and the man himself was there!! It was a total thrill for me. Oh and I think you'll like my post tomorrow - it's one of your dream destinations!
