last month was all about...

Time has just flown these last weeks and everyday life suddenly got filled up with, wedding plans, a daughter who has learned to open every drawer in the house, a project management exam due on two weeks and a full time job.

Since last time lots of things have happened in-between all the above. I’ll share last months happenings in photos and a few lines.

The sun came out

We played hide and seek

We ate waffles together with neighbours until our bellys couldn't fit one more heart of waffle.

We celebrated the 17th of May (Norways national day) by waving our flag

by marching togehter with the band

by watching and admiring all the beautiful craft on these national costumes (bunader)

by admiring more beautiful stiches

and by eating ice cream. All this together with friends that measn a lot to us.

We have walked in the woods and seen these beautful & relaxed sheeps

We accidently came across this concert with the woman that sing songs that cheers me up and makes me smile.

We barbequed together with some lovely neighbours. Which reminds me we need to buy a "bring a long barbeque" instead of these "one time use & throw away barbeques".

And the tulips are blooming


  1. Hey A. Glad you were having all sorts of lovely times. Really cute images of growing up Astrid {may you please squeeze those cheeks for me?!}. Your national day is so colourful and quite interesting. I would to see the parade one day.

    Hope the wedding plans are well underway. All the best. hugs.

  2. the sheep photos are so delightful. have a lovely day!

  12. Sometimes, a break is important...

  13. Hello - I came by via Sally Annie Magundy's blog, and I loved your photographs. It is so nice to see a glimpse into a different corner of the world - loved those costumes, and your daughter looks very happy - love her red knitted coat. As for the waffles - I think I would have eaten until I couldn't fit in one more as well!

  16. que preciosas fotos y que grande está la nenita, si aún fue ayer que nació! : ) c´est la vie. Acabo de descubrir hace poco un tipo de bordado que me encanta, estoy haciendo algo, se llama kogin y puedes ver un poco en este libro aunque lo tiene carísimo, creo que se pasa, ese cualquier día lo tenemos en yesasia o lo consigo con otra a un precio más razonable.
