In our village there is really just one place to go for the opportunity to meet new people while getting a cup of coffee.
And that is the village church, twice a week you can take your kids there to play while you can enjoy a cup of coffee.
And that is where I first met Sophie and Patric. The couple that people around here knew as “Stockholmarna” (=people from Sweden´s capitol city Stockholm).
We started talking and instead of being just neighbors we became friends.

With an apartment in Stockholm they started looking for a summer house in the south part of Sweden. And ended up buying a 300 year old run -down house with dirt floor that was far from livable. For the following years they worked on it during vacations and in-between jobs.
And when they had baby Iris they decided to skip the city for a while and live in the summerhouse full time.
