Why I had to take a break


The last few weeks of December were rough on me and my little family. During the course of one and a half week I lost both my grandfathers. It has been a very hard time for me, but I’m slowly getting back on my feet again. I’m taking one day at a time and trying to fill each day with as much joy and happiness as possible. It’s damn hard at times, I’ll admit that.

Hopefully, I’ll start writing posts here again this week. But if I don’t, you’ll know why. I do hope you’ll stick around for that <3

Activities calendar for December

There is no way around it. I simply love Christmas. I love everything about it: the buying gifts, the gift wrapping, the family traditions, the meet ups with friends and family, the decorating and so much more.

A few years back, I created an activity calendar for December. I love the idea that each day you’ll get a different task, cozy and a bit practical of course, to do. If I’d had the time, I would have done something along these lines this year, but I want to share a few ideas and a tip with you.

Activities for my Family in December

  • Drink hot chocolate
  • Watch a holiday movie together
  • Make gifts for family members

  • Go ice skating
  • Make a gingerbread house

Instagram Bootcamp

This week has turned out to be a quite busy one for me. Due to the nice change in the weather last weekend, I didn’t get around to writing or researching for posts for this week. So I’ll probably not post quite as many posts this week as usual.

Espresso Moments on Instagram This week I’m busy with the amazing BYW Instagram Bootcamp. I’m learning so much, and having so much fun playing around with props and editing my photos. So if you’re not following me on Instagram yet, here is your chance to hop on over and see what I’m up there. On a side note, don’t you just love the simple and bright new design of Instagram?

That’s it from me today. Hopefully, I’ll return tomorrow with some interior inspiration for you. Until then, have a lovely day <3

Lamp searching

We’ve made a few changes in our kitchen slash dining room over the last couple of months. We added a new dining table top from Trævarefabrikernes Udsalg to our black Hay Loop Stand Frame Table legs. We also added black/white colourpop shelves, which we bought at areastore.

Now that it’s getting darker, we are in need of a few new lamps. I did predict it, but never got around to finding the perfect lamps, because the room was so bright all the time. But now, I think I’ll have to move fast, otherwise we’ll be living in the dark all winter.

I’ll collect a few options, and present them here on the blog in a few days.
