Greetings from the Faroe Islands

Greetings All Ye Faithful Blogreaders. Long time has passed and so much has happened.
Good things have happened the past four years.
I graduated last summer very pregnant and rushed home to pack up the rest of our apartment/life in Vesterbro, Copenhagen. I knew that Kristjan wanted to return home to the Faroes, that was why I went back to school, to have three more years in Copenhagen. The three years went by SO fast. In school I gained new knowledge and new friends. I found it so invigorating to be around people ten years younger than me. I miss them.

I was not ready to move back to the Faroes, but when all our earthly possessions were packed in a container and driven away down Dybbølsgade (our street), it felt completely and utterly right. It still feels right.

Off course I miss Copenhagen. Kristjan and I lived there for twelve years. We moved to Dybbølsbro as a young couple eager to experience the city life, ready to study hard and party hard. At some point we decided to get serious and we got married. We travelled and learned new things. Finally we became parents to our beloved daughter. We had five easy breezy years with her and enjoyed life as a family in Vesterbro, Copenhagen. But all good things come to an end. This new era of our life is exiting. Nikolina is blossoming and I think that is related to the freedom of small town living. She runs off to her new friends as she pleases, she plays outside and out of site. That really does something to her self confidence. Nikolinas brother, Jústinus, is pretty much like his sister - mellow. He'll for sure be intreduced to Dybbølsbro and to all our good memories in Vesterbro <3


One last trio trip

Someway somehow I found time to go on vacation for a week whilst working on my BA. I really wanted to have a last vacation, before we became a family of four. It was so worth it, leaving my BA behind – not giving a hoot and just enjoy the superb company, that is my husband and daughter. We ordered nothing but sunbathing, siestas and ice cream.


Tubadi tub tub tub

Her is a picture of my love in our old sitting bathtub. I reckon a bathtub to be one of life's great indulgences, and to have that in our simple little hut, is so delightful.


Nikolina Flora

This is Nikolina before bedtime...

I purchased gymnastic rings a little month ago for Nikolina Flora. They have been in action ever since. She absolutely loves them and learns new tricks just about every day. And then two weeks ago I bought two old triangle shaped bookcases from Montana. I'd love to have them in our living room, but Kristjan did not love that idea, so for now they make for a great dollhouse in Nikolinas room. All this makes for a very active and happy girl.


No noel just yet

I'm not ready for the ornament invasion yet - Nikolina Flora is in a big way. So guess we'll be trimming our plastic tree soon


Strendur, Faroe Islands

It's now two years ago, that Kristjan and I purchased a 45kvm hut in Kristjans home village. We spent a week there this summer and a a jolly old good time. List of things I like about the hut:
the view (overlooking Skálafjørð)
the company (my lovely daughter and husband)
the size (45kvm is so doable)
the bathtub (pictures to come...)
did I mention the good company!?


Best advise ever!


This summer thus far

We're enjoying the danish summer and for the most part hanging out at home until the worst heat and sunbeams have past. We vent to Tivoli two days in a row, visiting the Rasmus Klump playground and not spending a single dime the first day, but we caved an ice cream to share on the second day. I'm trying to hold back on the little I have, now attending school and no work...


Now that's a shade!

Would die for a Ana Kras handmade lamp shade. They are so beautiful and classic. No two are the same, but all charming.
