My Summer Dream Came True

We see this beautiful sunset from our cottage every evening


The cottage is situated in the best part of my favourite island, Styrsö, making my Summer dream real in every possible way. My two cats, Jon, and myself are in Summer paradise right now. We will also celebrate Swedish mid-summer here. The holiday couldn’t be any better :)

I’ve always believed in the expression “What you focus on is what you get”. My dream of a red cottage came true because I focused and didn’t give up.

To all of you out there with a dream, big or small: Believe in it because it will come true :)
