Karlshamn in Blekinge, Sweden

This past weekend so we went to Karlhamn to visit my partner’s family. It is a much bigger city than the one that I come from but still really small.

This is 8.30pm on a Friday night. Not a soul in sight

and oh so pretty

My future father-in-law gave me his late wife’s pearls, which meant the absolute world to me. My mother – who married in the 50s – always used to say that a bride should receive pearls, and it has been a tradition in my family for brides and bridesmaids to receive pearls as gifts. I am getting married in about 40 days and so these can be my pearls! I am not a tearful person but I almost burst into tears. I love my partner’s family to absolute bits.
