A wonderful day

The last couple of weeks have turned into a blur. All merged into one. I don’t even remember when one stops and the next one starts. I fill my day with tasks & goals so that my time won’t be left meaningless. The one thing I wish I had more of – time. Whilst I know my time is ending, the time of my children are just beginning, God willing. But that makes days like these so much more valuable.


I started my day off like I always do – enjoying a homemade breakfast with my son. Around noon I jumped in the car with my daughter to drive and pick up my friend from work. We enjoyed our afternoon outside, finding a cute cafe were we could sit and chat for a while. The day only got better when we decided to buy two baskets of strawberries and then swing by at home to get my son. Norwegian summer doesn’t last very long so when the weather is good you’ll find most people at the beach, where we also ended up. Even though it took a while to get used to the cold water, it was still nice. 

A day to remember. Now I’m hoping that my daughter will fall asleep soon so that I too can catch some Zzzz. Good night.

Is this it?

Is this what I’ve been waiting for? My birthday. All my life I’ve waited for this day, the day I turn 18. I remember when I was 13 years and couldn’t wait to grow up and become an adult. Just to know all the things you can do, being your own boss. But the only thing fun about growing up is.. well, you fill out the blank because I don’t know yet. But I do know that I’ve learned a lot in these 18 years of my lifetime and I’ve been so blessed having a wonderful family who cares more than anything and I love them to death. And all my friends who’ve been there through thick and thin with me, I couldn’t have made it without you. So thank you to all who has every given me a reason to live, laugh and love. You keep me going and I hope for another good 18 years to come and more!
