End of the decade – 2012

2012. Lots and lot of pictures (honestly, shit loads of pictures. Most likely only interesting to me, but hey, my blog). Oliver with his camera and me with my phone. Being all artistic.

I felt lonely this year. But looking at the photos i was surrounded by friends. In London and in Sweden. Filippa, Maggie, Bella, Sanna, Julia and my sister. All came to visit me that year. My friends are the best. Im just sad i couldnt see it clearly then. But i do now.

The year started with New Years in Sweden. Fancy dinner with fancy people. Us and a whole lot of influencers 🙂

Early february me, Kix and Laxen went to Paris for a rumspringa (when the amish have their one year of freedom). It was hedonistic and crazy and awesome.

We met a plastic surgeon and partied in his house with russian models and middle aged men (classic). We crashed a wedding and almost got tricked into a swingers party.

We hung around in the jacuzzi in his bedroom, of course with a mirror ceiling. However, decided to leave when they had an actual jacuzzi party in there. Or at least i did…

I found a machete and we climbed the buddha statues in his garden. We politly declined his offer of botox at 5am in the morning.

We went to a wedding and i got told i looked like a princess. Like Kate Middleton. This is where the whole thing started. Me and my princess look.

My birthday came around. I turned 30. Elin sent me the best balloons ever – Fuck Valentines, its Cissis birthday. Hell yeah!

IMG-20120212-WA0013

Bella was in town and her and Elin threw me a surprise birthday party. Everyone came around to this pub and it took me forever to realise it was for me and not just all my friends randomly being at the same place. Im very smart.

What really got me then but even more now is that everyone put the issues we had as a group aside to come and celebrate me. Thats one of those things i will always remember.

We played the dice game, sang karaoke in a hair saloon, flew helicopter over Manhattan, went to an all day boozy brunch and spent the best 30th of anyone anywhere.

We also met up with Jonathan for the first time since they stayed with us. This is important since he is the one that finally convinced me i needed to go to Burning Man. Took a couple of years but i got there.

Christmas party with work and dressing up to the nines. It was all tight black dresses and high heels in 2012. Thank god sneakers would become fashion in a couple of years.

And year ended with baking at Kix and Robins.

Me, my (up until Woolly) favourite doggo and a gorgeous necklace that was unfortunately way too expensive for me.

As i said, i felt lonely and depressed in 2012 but my year is one of friends, love and an amazing support network. Im so happy that im able to appreciate that now. I know its a crazy amount if pics in this post but i needed to remind myself of all the amazing times.
