FARFARS LYCKA

We made it! We are open.

Jake now has a cafe in Kärleksparken.
We’ve been working night and day lately in order to be ready in time.
Yesterday we sold our first coffee at 14:55.
Just like we said, ready for the 3-o’clock fika!

YES!

Finn has truly been a champion. He loves being out and about meeting new people. The more the merrier. He always amazes me. A happy boy all the time.
Thank god for that!

First guests. Willerstrand + Lagerqvist. Thanks for helping out with the last minute fix.

First smoothies out, made small ones for getting the approval.

Kristin came with a bike full of roses, a lovely tomato plant, fresh mint and salad.
Thank you darling. Not long after this photo was taken she had a long shopping list in her hand. How lucky are we to helping friends!

I just have a feeling this photo could be the winner for this year already. Honestly, how nice? #goals …. right?

Kristin. Lisa. Diba.

We can’t thank Sofia enough who has been helping out each day now, you are such a gem!
You and Bernie are not aloud to go back to LA, stay in Varberg please.

Kärleksparken is a magical spot.

Hope to see you this summer. We are gonna be in the park unless the weather is not to crazy, hope for sunny days.

Open today between 11-18. Welcome.

in between all

Weather has been so good lately I barely believe we’re in Sweden anymore. But after all it’s summer!

Finkel is enjoying him self in the pool. His smile says it all.

This has surely been a busy week so far. A LOT has been accomplished already.
I’ve made 13 brownies, 40 pieces of snickers bars, 3 batches of granola – so we can serve breakfast all day in the van .

snickerbars coming up

I have prepped so I can make chocolate bolls tomorrow morning first thing.
Ordered all the fruit & veg we need for this weekend.

There is so much to do in order to get the van ready. All good fun, we are forever grateful for Jakes dad helping us out every day. Thank you!

Since we renovate our own house to, it’s all a crazy mess. Busy heads and full focus, and non stop work!
Got a bit upset when our painter didn’t show up in 3 days. High stress levels then, but now it seems we are back on track .. fingers crossed! cause we are suppose to move into the house by next week you see.

Everything is truly possible.

I’ll update again tomorrow, lots to share from our house and all the happenings this upcoming weekend.

Kärleksparken in Varberg

hey hey hey!
I need to share a small secret with you. It’s about my better half
Jake. My amazing multi talented man.

There’s not much he can’t do. From building a house to cooking our food.
Sometimes he watches Youtube to learn a new skill or find inspiration for ideas he’s thought of.
For example, towards the end of last summer we bought a bee hive.

A bee community is something Jacob has always dreamt of having, so many hours spent researching on youtube and a day later we had hives placed in the garden.
Jake has always keep pretty busy and I love that.
Different projects here and there, one after another. No dreams are too big.

Talking about dreams, when we lived in Australia a few years ago we spoke about buying a van to drive around Australia…
Make a mobile coffee shop and work where we wanted too.
Since I have been a chef for 15 years and Jake is a great builder and electrician it didn’t feel so far out of reach.

But we moved back to Sweden, and have been here for 6 years now.
With this dream still lurking in the back of our minds, and the lovely location in Varberg called Kärleksparken being free this year (since dear Malin has chose not to keep her Juice & yoga there) Jake felt he wanted to give the Café dream a go.
Said and done.
Caravan found on Blocket. Few calls to the council, police and anyone interested. Papers signed. DONE.

Now it’s the part of getting the van ready within two weeks. EEEEEEEKK.
Tomorrow the renovation will begin and we hope to keep you up to date on our journey, every step of the way. Everything is going to be changed inside, outside.

This is such a fun project and I’m so proud of my Jake!
He always says in Sweden you can barely buy any good milkshakes. In Australia & in England you can get them everywhere. So Milkshakes will definitely be on the menu.

Juices, smoothies, soup and panini, oh & Fika obviously.
Hope you will join us on this journey. We will update daily, before and after how the renovation goes.
We will start the transformation on Friday the 14th of June.

So please say hi to the new, or oldie from 1966.

Jungle breakfast meeting

Jungle breakfast in my favourite park.
”Kärleks parken in Varberg”, Jucieandyoga is ran by my talented friend Malin.

So much love has been put into this little place, never seen anything like it. Malin and many others have yoga classes here every morning and through the whole of July. Classes start at 8.30 every day. I can tell you, yoga under the trees whilst listening to the birds, couldn’t be more dreamy.

All juices and smoothies are made with fresh organic fruits. Thank you Malin for helping make Varberg so beautiful. If ever in Varberg, J.O.Y is a MUST!



The other week I started my morning there myself. Delicious coffee, smoothie bowl and a green juice…perfect way to start the day. Together with Karin from Holdit, we had a little meeting here
. Love collaborating with like minded people. 



My favourite, obviously the Deco Cat (love everything CATS).
Many cases to choose from, this one had the thumbs up from the start.

I know their cases and other accessories can be found in Åhlens, Elgiganten and chosen stores around Sweden. I think it’s so cool that this brand has it’s base in Varberg! Must be something in the ”Varberg air” which makes the people so creative.

oh!  I need to mention one other thing….
We spent the weekend on our boat, 36h without any electricity. What saved me was this piece! A real life saver. More powerbanks to the people!

Happy days indeed.

This update is collaboration with Holdit.
