Hay Stockholm!

I love the way the Swedish say hello, “hay hay”!  It sounds just like “hey” and comes off as very casual and friendly, which is exactly the feel of the city of Stockholm.  Brandon and I spent Columbus Day weekend visiting Stockholm and while fall weather had definitely set in, we had an incredible time visiting this beautiful city.  The city of Stockholm is on a collection of islands with gorgeous waterways, buildings and people.  Our time was spent wandering through this fabulous city, its incredible museums and eating some delicious food.  We definitely plan to head back up for another visit, hopefully in the summer so we can take advantage of the gorgeous waterways!

More from Versailles–Marie Antoinette’s Estate

I don’t know why I keep going back to my photos from our trip to Paris this summer.  Even as I upload and edit my photos from our trip to Stockholm, Sweden, I couldn’t resist posting another couple photos from Paris.  These two are from Versailles and Marie Antoinette’s beautiful Estate.  While I love the big palaces and ornately decorated staterooms, these little cottages were absolutely gorgeous and we loved wandering around the ponds and cluster of adorable buildings.
