first photo
My first photo taken by a professional photographer. I am around 1 year old when this photo was taken, and life had only just begun.

First grade. Such an important day in our lives. I remember I was so excited to finally begin going to school.

Me and my kids enjoying the water during one of our family holidays to Swedens West coast.

family

I have celebrated many midsummers in Myrensjö Hembygsgård. The folk costume I am wearing I have sewn myself. I have also sewn an identical costume for my daughter. Wearing it together makes me very proud.

I love spending time in the garden, here holding two big rhubarbs. This image was taken right before I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma.

favorite places

I celebrated my 70th birthday in Kleva Mine in Småland. The mine has existed since the 18th century and is one of my favorite places. I had all my friends and family by my side and it truly was a memorable moment.

This photo was taken during my first dialysis. I wanted to capture this moment and took this photo myself.

I have always been very interested and curious about our nature.
passion
A passion of mine is what we in Sweden call «värdeträd». These are trees that are important for the biodiversity. Since 2006 I have worked for the municipality to find these trees. Unfortunately I had to stop doing this when I got ill and the pandemic hit. But I love these trees and hope I can get back out there in the future.

Going for walks is therapy for your body and soul. This photo is from one of my many walks looking for «värdeträr». I came across this big hollow tree and thought it was so beautifu with the light hitting the branches.
