FUWL cage shelf for Menu

This is genius! Just what I needed for our hallway.  It’s perfect for all the mittens, scarfs and hoodies for the kids. The FUWL cage shelf and mirror from Menu is designed by From Us With Love. And I cannot wait. I have to go out and buy the cage shelf right away. The big question is – should I pick the black or the white one?

Birthday wishes

Soon I’ll turn 35. Normally, I have to think about how old I am. It’s a huge help that my son turns five years old two weeks before my birthday. Truth be told, I don’t think about my age that much. But writing it here in this post made me think about it a bit. I don’t feel old, actually we’re among the youngest parents in my girl’s class. But soon I’ll be closer to 40 then 30 – and that scares me a bit.

I’m thinking that some things have got to change. I want to be more true to myself and therefore I want to change a few things in my life. I want a  life full of love, laughter and good company. I want to be more mindful and more relaxed. I’ve begun making small changes already, and I’m taking one step at a time.

I’ve put together some birthday wishes on Pinterest. But here are a few of the things on top of my wishlist.

Counting down

I’m counting down. Two more days to go. I want to stay home with the kids and just be with them. We all need a break now. They are visiting my parents these days until we finish up the last work here. Then we’ll take Sweden, Germany and Denmark for the next couple of weeks. I cannot wait.

Coffee, jazz and a break

I didn’t plan on taking a break from blogging – it just happened.

These last couple of weeks have been packed with dinner dates, play dates, family time in the park or by the fjord, coffee breaks, school activities and so much more. I’ve sat down in front of my mac numerous times to write a post, but then something else got in the way.

To sum up a few important findings or things I’ve really enjoyed, I selected a few things I want to highlight from the past few weeks.

Coffee – If you live in Aalborg, or if you ever pass by, I would highly recommend a visit to my favourite kaffebar (coffee house) Behag din Smag. This week they opened a new kaffebar even closer to where I work. The new place to be is at Gabels Torv in the city center. This is me at work enjoying a cup of the best coffee in town.

Jazz – A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of going to a concert with Niels Lan Doky Trio at Musikkens Hus right here in Aalborg. It was a fantastic night – and memories took me right back to Paris, where we first saw the trio a few years ago.

Jewelry – I’ve bought a few earrings for myself. I’ve been wanting to do that for a long time, so when I found StillWithYou, I immediately fell in love with a few of Renathe’s designs. I bought these and this, and I’ve been wearing them ever since I found them in my mailbox. I’ll be back that’s for sure.

Twin Peaks – Tonight I’m ready for a damn fine cup of coffee, black as midnight on a moonless night, when I’ll be watching the two last episodes on Netflix with my oldest friend. This picture is from last time we got together to watch it.

Now I’m ready for my vacation to begin. I’ve got one more week left at work. This weekend will be all about family time.

Have a lovely Friday out there.
