10 years of June the 1st

June 1, 2011

June 1, 2002: I was in Berlin for the first time.

June 1, 2003: A walk in Gothenburg.

June 1, 2004: I received a letter from HDK telling me I was accepted. My family sent me flowers but the lady who wrote the note heard wrong and wrote “seller” instead of “star” 😉

June 1, 2005: I found a note from my latin teacher (1996): Worried about her behaviour. She’s troubled in the classes, escapism. Oh I remember we had so many arguments but still we liked eachother for some strange reason.

June 1, 2006: A shop in Gothenburg was the only thing shot this day.

June 1, 2007: Lovely fabric in a Gothenburg window, I had seen it for years and right after I took this picture it was removed. Happy I snatched it!

June 1, 2008: Picnic with friends, Camilla, Morran & Anna were there too.

June 1, 2009: Went to Liseberg with my kids (well, my sister’s kids, but the only kids I want to have).

June 1, 2010: Dinner & cocktails with our neighbour in Gothenburg.

June 1, 2011: Morning coffee with Johan before work.

    tänkte göra en sånhär på 1 juni också men insåg att jag bara kan gå tillbaks 3 år i tiden. så det var inte lika rolig tillbakablick som denna. hehe verklighetsflykt 🙂

    Nice idea to document a day over several years ! I guess i'll try to dive into my archives of photos…
    Happy *Himmelfahrt* and (long?) weekend :-))

    hi sandra why you don't want to have kids? I'm sure you will be a very funny and creative mum…by the way my name is Michi.

  • Reply Samantha June 1, 2011 at 11:42 am

    1) Ha! Seller.
    2) Latin! Fancy lady. 🙂
    3) Morran looks like a character from a Western movie! Like she's about to say, "Do you feel lucky?"
    4) I'm like you – I don't want to have kids but will probably consider my brother's kids "my kids" (well, once he has them!)
    5) I remember the 2010 salad picture! I think I even asked you to tell me all the ingredients. It was very important to me, apparently.

    Time flies… if you don't pay attention. 😉
    My best friend (since the 6th grade) refers
    to me as "the biological mother of her kids".

    Oh Sandra….your blog never fails to inspire. I am now desperate to visit Berlin and am promising myself…next year…next year…

    In 2002 I went to Berlin for the first time too, and I remember Postdamer Platz's Banhof exactly like that!

    · { Hej Sandra … har lige været i Berlin, og jeg tænkte mon jeg støder på dig … da vi gik en tur i Simon Dach Strasse søndag aften … kom dig og Johan gående med en bakke jordbær … men det gik først op for mig da vi havde passeret hinanden og så ville jeg ikke løbe efter dig! I wish det var mig der boede i skønne Berlin … enjoy summer og mange hilsener fra mig } ·
