September: a weekend in Stockholm with good friends, Sara got into the habit of going to barnehagen/kindergarten every day and loved it, I got back to work after almost two years of maternity leave, I opened my little photo print shop, I started the darker mornings photo project, and my first semester of being a student again started.
October: we all celebrated our birthdays (Sølve on the 26th, me on the 28th and Sara on the 30th), I ate a lot of marzipan cake, I continued running and it felt great, nature dressed in autumn colors, I hiked up mount Ulriken several times, I made American pancakes for the first time, and we spent a weekend in our hometown Sandnes visiting family and friends.
November: first snow, Sara had a lot of fun with her scooter, I had my substitute teaching debut, got hooked on roasted Brussel sprouts and bacon, I shared my pantry essentials, Sara and I visited family in Trøndelag, we had a house guest for a whole week, Sølve and I had date night (out of the house!), and we spent a weekend in Sandnes so Sølve could run his second half marathon.
December: Bergen was a winter wonderland for a few days and we had a blast sledding with Sara, I finally started running again after a two months break, we decorated our Christmas tree with our friends, we lit a fire in the wood stove every morning and evening, I was busy with exam and work deadlines, Sølve made the best hot chocolate ever, I updated my portfolio, I shared my thoughts on dinner planning and grocery shopping, and we celebrated Christmas with our families in Sandnes.
2013 was a good year with big changes. I'm excited to see what 2014 brings.
