life, week 16 - in which I share exciting news

After the Easter vacation my belly suddenly got noticeably bigger. 

early birds // ready for a day of lectures 

home bound // she loves the bike trailer

I'm glad to have come to this stage of the pregnancy; no longer a need to hide the bump. It is official: Sara is becoming a big sister at the end of September.

Helping her pappa with the final preparations before the law seeding.

Wednesday 7 am

sun stripe snack

the joy of a perfectly ripe avocado // guacamole to be

An evening walk before the rain, and then ice cream and Rita on Netflix.

spring intrudes and I don't mind

home bound // so happy we live close enough to Sara's kindergarten so she can go by balance bike

Friday 7 am

so blue #nofilter

Oslo bound

date night at Villa Paradiso

I can not remember the last time I slept until 0930 am. And then hotel breakfast. Such luxury!

our Saturday in Oslo

Champagne reception at the top of Grand hotel. Cool yet freezing.

all dressed up and big smiles

baby's first wedding // 17 weeks pregnant in my mum's cocktail dress from the 70s

a rare treat: cortado at a café

such lovely wooden tables at Kaffebrenneriet

spring has sprung // more in Oslo than Stavanger

magnolia galore

lykken = happiness

I love watching earth from an airplane window

Pretty excited about her travel gift from mamma and pappa: pink light up sneakers with glitter - I never thought we would buy something like that!
