Copenhagen photo spam

What can I say? I love the place and love the people.... I always feel like I am coming home....

Here is a bit of Copenhagen photo spam for you (whether you like it or not 😉) xox

So Copenhagen!

Aarhus

I am now on the other side of the "pond" and in Aarhus. I am embarrassed to say that, after having lived in Copenhagen for 4 years, I never left Sjælland (the Danish island where Copenhagen is located) and have only visited Legoland and Lalandia since (our trip is here). Anyway, I am now in Aarhus and sorry that I never came here before. It is a charming small-ish city that has a ton of character and history... and the beautiful water views aren't too terrible either ;)

Last night, after arriving, I had dinner with the lovely Catarina and Karin, who I met in blog land :) I met up with Catarina in Legoland/Lalandia (same trip as above) but I never met Karin in person before. Actually, after knowing each other for about 10 years as bloggers, Catarina and Karin never met face to face either. Funny thing is that I felt like I always knew them and that they are old friends!

Today, my host here took me to the downtown core. She showed me around and treated me to a fabulous traditional lunch that consisted of Smørrebrød and Carlsberg beer. It was fantastic! After around 4 hours of walking around, I headed back to my hotel to write this and get ready for a conference dinner tonight.

After a busy conference schedule tomorrow,  I will head to Copenhagen on Friday for some work and not-work "meetings" ;) Warning: photo spam ahead ;)


Have a great rest of the day xox

Missing big events

Nicklas' grade 6 graduation ceremony is this coming Friday... and I will be missing it :( Early in the year, I was invited to give a talk at a conference and, lucky me, this conference is in Denmark! I was so excited about it... until I found out that Nicklas' grad was exactly the time of the conference. Andreas assured me that he will be video taping it for me but I still feel sad to miss the event. To make up for it, I took him shopping for his celebratory outfit. I had a good time with him and proud of how he is growing up. He even matched me in the love of picking up a Bubble Tea while we were at the mall.

 I am sorry to be missing this big event but he knows that he will be in my heart on his big night.

On another note, be prepared for Denmark spam as I am leaving tomorrow ;) All I can say is almost 10 days of not making school lunches xox

Checking in


Hello all! Just checking in ;) I have been a very crappy at keeping up this blog lately... oops! Everything seems to be busy on every level. The boys are already into their football and rugby seasons. Andreas and I are starting summer soccer now. At work, we just transitioned from winter to summer semesters. Oliver had his birthday party. The boys' school years are winding down. I am preparing for my trip to Denmark (more on that later). Anyway, you get the idea ;) 

Here are some pictures of the past week or so... I promise to check in more often... and I know that I have said that a few times lately ;) Hope you are all doing well and have the patience to also check in here from time to time xox
