Christmas fever

I love Christmas. Like, really LOVE Christmas. And that’s mainly because I love our Christmas tree. It’s out of control, hysterical and every ornament has its story.

Next to our tree we have some candles, a broken Santa music box and two white paper stars. The tree was the main star, and she always delivered.

The upside of moving

Moving is dreadful. Doesn’t matter how much you like to leave the old place, or how exciting the new is. The part where you have to put everything in boxes is nobodies favorite.

The last time we moved (I moved a lot in my life…), we had the luxury of a removal firm. It was so weird and fantastic at the same time that we could leave the house with everything in it and on its place and arrive at the end of the day to see all was packed. The days before were nevertheless tiring and frustrating. Because you want to leave your home perfectly organized and clutter free. At least I did….

But I promised you a fun part! And life saver Pinterest is there to help. After all is moved in, all is unpacked and you are sort of settled there are so much fun things you can do with all those empty boxes!

I selected a few and of course I had to try one…

Penpals: Stick around friends

Hi M,

Your last sentence keeps echoing in my head “if you meet someone likeminded it just falls into place”. That’s exactly how I feel about this. About love in general. I like to feel things. Not literally, but more emotionally. And when I meet someone, I know very quickly if we can relate or not and I think you are the same.

It’s easy for me to say now, I’m not in LA with 2 kids and a working husband. But I really think the flashbacks to how it was when you were in high school or on the dating market, make you feel more insecure. Like you’re there again. But you’re not.

One (and a half) year ago we went on a holiday to LA, not knowing we would actually move there one year later. We had such an amazing time! 5 weeks of exploring, enjoying the weather, meeting all these nice people and being together (and some working for him).

But there were a few things I had a harder time appreciating. Like all these big, grey, concrete buildings without windows. However, after a while I started to notice all this amazing murals. There were so many walls to paint, and they do! Bright colors, beautiful graphics and illustrations.

We started looking for them and after that we started posing in front of them and taking pictures (you can call me shallow, but I just don’t like looking back at photos without people on them, not even my own). And yes, of course we posted them on Instagram!

Dress Up December

December is her month. I love December and all it’s family gatherings, food and presents. But I can tell you this: December is the most inconvenient month to deliver a baby.

In short: we have two* Christmas like events and a little girl’s birthday in less than a month. All of which involves family. And I grew up in a family that knows how to value presents (if you know what I mean). Including me, but this three week gift marathon is let’s say intense.
