It was cold but sunny and it was the perfect thing to do today. Me, my wife and the twins drive to our beloved little house to clean it before spring comes hard. Today is what we in Sweden call “vårdagjämning”, the first day of the year when the day is as long as the night. From now on the day is becoming longer and longer all the way to midsummer. It’s not a public holiday or a day you celebrate with friends and family but it’s a day you look forward to. Winter in the Nordics are dark and long.

To get out here for a day, breath the air and spend time with my family outside the apartment makes me feel happy.

How’s your day?
