We spent the day at my mother/father-in-laws, Maj-Britt and Stig, with fantastic food and christmas spirit.  Maj-Britt reflected over the fact “who was to pass on the recipe of her magic meat balls to the next generation?” First thing that came to my mind was ” Not me”! I am a vegetarian and have been for a long time. But it made me think a little extra about the thought of passing on traditions from one generation to the next. How the fact that everyone participates and anticipates is actually quite “monumental” to me. Whether it is recipes, homilies or wisdom, is something I find to give comfort and security as life can be confusing as it is and traditions are a connection to family. Things that seem insignificant, may actually mean a lot for the next generation. Time will tell!

So Christmas came and the blaze of delight and unwrapped presents is all of a sudden over. Disappointed? No not really … you see, being a Chile-bean and a Yankee means that my other half of the family celebrates on the 25:th. So christmas continues for 17 family members in our house. Same procedure as every year! This year my dad outdid himself with the exquisite “chilean empanadas de queso” and his vegetarian pastel de choclo. My mother’s vegetarian pie was also out of this world. Goodie-goodie! I over ate, yes yes. Is it possible not to over-eat over the holidays?

A change of tradition this year was to only give the children presents and skip the adults. Very boring …. I will vote to on “presents for all” next year ;) … Even though we all know that the best gifts in life will never be found under a Christmas tree, those gifts are friends, family, children. All the ones you love <3

Christmas also means a lot of extra work for us. Customers understandably wants their photos ready before christmas. Which means I have lots of nice photos to show. The reconstruction of my new bathroom / make up-room is coming along fine as well as my new web-page. I will soon show them to you as well :)

Here are two christmas pictures of beautiful Ella. You will be seeing more work from us in january.

I started to write about Andreas Carlsson and just realized it was quite impossible due to his involvement in numerous projects. So I’m only  scratching the surface by writing that he is a successful swedish composer and songwriter working with the elite of rock and pop. He has written music for Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Paul Stanley, Scorpions and Europe. Adding on other accomplishments such as Katy Perry, Celine Dion and Britney Spears. Also honored with Grammy nominations and awards for #1 hits and best songs written etc.

Latest news about Andreas is that he is collaborating with the american record label Verve/ UNIVERSAL MUSIC as their new A&R. Responsible for talent scouting and overseeing the artistic development of recording and songwriters. That includes authorizing and negotiating record contracts. Sounds like a really fun and great job to me.

In Sweden the last episode on the first season of X-Factor has just ended where Andreas has brought light to the winner Awa Santesson-Say. The 15-year-old has an incredible voice and all the charisma and quality it takes to be a star. We will undoubtedly hear more from her. Congratulations!

What else’s up with Andreas? Well… He is opening up a new school in Sweden 2013 – Academy of Music and Business, AMB. Initially an independent secondary school focusing on music and entrepreneurial training. I will write more about that soon.

For my swedish followers. Here is an interesting entry on his blog :)tallee-sign

And finally here are some photos from our first session. Easy going black n’ white portraits. Needless to say he is extremely photogenic and awesomely easy to work with.
