Merry Christmas! ♥

Hi beautiful! Merry Christmas! :) I hope everyone is having a fab time this holiday season. I am currently in Geneva celebrating the holiday with my family. Flew in a couple of days ago, thankfully making my flight despite the weather conditions, and been soaking up family time with my brothers and sisters. I have quite a lot planned for my time here back in Europe, including visiting my cousin in London, skiing, going to Paris and seeing some old friends. Will take lots of pictures for you guys :)

Today we celebrated Christmas (Swedish tradition to celebrate the night of the 24th) and it was beautiful :) Helped my mom prepare our annual Christmas turkey with apple, prune and chutney stuffing, which turned out nice and juicy. We also had smoked salmon, tomato salad, potato gratin and baked zucchini. Since I'm not eating any wheat or dairy (read more about it here), I just loaded up on smoked salmon (which I could eat every day!), tomato salad and turkey. Yum! I am going to do a proper update on that soon but so far the results I've seen with my skin are wonderful (and I of course also feel less bloated due to the complete elimination of wheat). More on that soon!

I want to say a big enormous thank you to everyone who has shown me so much love this past year. I truly adore you and the support you've shown me :) Merry Christmas from Geneva everyone!

My older brother brought over these gorgeous long stem roses for my mom
(but they were really for me from a secret admirer ;) lol)

Sitting down for dinner. How amazing is my mom for making the table so pretty and
writing everyone's names out on these cute cards (and we were 12!) :)
Love you! ♥

  19. Hello! I was wondering which organic store you go to that you absolutely love! I know you might have answered this already but I am pretty new at the unprocessed and organic way of living and I would love for a little heads up! :) Also i was wondering how many miles you run when you exercise? I know you switch it up but when you do run... the distance? thank you♥

  23. HI Annie and Merry Christmas. I was interested to see your comments about going wheat and dairy free since for the past few months I have been doing the same. My mom recently became aware she is highly allergic to wheat, dairy and soy and while she suffers more severe reactions I discovered myself becoming more and more gluten intolerant. It's something that is actually quite common among people more than they realize. Anyway I look forward to hearing your take on it and your experience.
