Ah.. finally married

It was wonderful. We had the best day, ever. Everything went just as it should, and it was perfect.

Thank you all so much for your well-wishes, we were so happy to come home and read them! We spent the night at Grand Hotel Saltsjobaden, which is in the little place where I grew up. It's beautiful, right on the seafront, and we had both dinner and breakfast overlooking the water. Gorgeous. And great food. But more on that some other time.

I thought I'd do a quick post to let you all know that it went well. The food was just enough for everyone (I had some leftover pasta salad, and cookies - but not much else. Phew!) and everyone said that they loved it. It wasn't all that difficult to pull off, either - I had most things prepared well in advance. Yesterday morning, all that remained to be done was transferring most things into pretty bowls and baskets, and tossing the green salad at last minute. That was that!

I'll be posting the remaining recipes "soon", but we're going away for ten days in Dalarna tomorrow and I won't be at a computer for most of that time. I might do some quick checking-ins at the library, but that's it.

So. I thought I'd leave you with a guest-blogger for a little while! Let me introduce Lena. Lena is a dear friend, whom I met by selling her and her boyfriend Nico a cat. Since then, we've spent a lot of time together, over dinners and fika, and they've ended up buying a second cat. (One of the cute little silvers from the latest litters - Kellycats Silver Habanero.) Lena and Nico were recently in Italy, and when they got home, she excitedly told me that she had taken pictures of all their amazing dinners. Well - perfect! So, hopefully she's going to drop by to tell you all about it. :)

I hadn't visited your blog for a few days and so I had no idea all this was going on.
You are doing much better than me in the marriage stakes. I think I am destined to be a spinster my whole life.
I like the sound of your wedding - small, simple and true without to much pomp and ceremony.
May being a "Mrs" be everything you want it to be, and I hope you are enjoying the honeymoon, we look forward to Lena's posts in the meantime,

Oh Anne, what a wonderful post and photo! Those sunflowers look almost as pretty as you do.

I know you're on your honeymoon, but I hope when you return you'll do this childhood food memories meme I'm tagging you for. I'm really looking forward to reading your answers. Have fun!

I'm so glad your delicous wedding went off without a hitch. Hope you had a wonderful trip!

Congratulations! I'm so glad that all went well - and that the food wasn't too much of a chore. I love your bouquet! I hope you two lovebirds will have a lifetime of happiness together.
