2 secrets

- I used to sell flower and vegetable seeds through mail order; my firm was named "de små frø" and my ads were handwritten
- I always wanted my future boyfriend to be taller than me (I'm 181 cm), but the boys I was in love with was often smaller than me - even my husband Sølve is smaller than me 

1 summer memory

- Sara covering herself in sand at the beach in Spain and then having a blast in the little waves

  1. Hihi, kjenner igjen det med høyde og kjærester! Jeg er 183 cm og vært forelsket i både lavere og høyere menn. Men som regel var det bare de høye som var forelsket i meg tilbake!

  2. Herlig :)
    Inspirert til å ta fram penn og papir å skrive ned litt om meg sjølv :)
    Kjekt å lesa om deg!

    Ha ein fin dag!
