5 books to read this fall

It’s time for some serious fall reading. The weather is cold and wet, and it’s time for me (and you) to enjoy even more great books inside under a blanket.

I’ve been offline with my family for the last couple of days. But now I’m back with a list of books currently on my wishlist. Some of them are already on their way to my mailbox. The past few days, we’ve been taking things slow, enjoying some time with our family in Aarhus and in Hjørrring, been fighting a cold (it’s that time of the year again), but now it’s time to return to ‘real life’ again.

Coffee, Paris and life hacks

As you might have guessed by now, I’m pretty passionate about my coffee. And when I came across some of these books, I had to have them. I remember our travel destinations based on where to get the best cup of coffee – and I always research before we go. I would never land in a city and not know where to get a decent cup of coffee. I’m sure two of these books will be of much help in the future. The other ones are simply based on interest and curiosity. I always love reading about new things and finding inspiration in that.

After spending a wonderful long weekend in Hamburg last weekend, I’ve been really busy at work. Things are changing and my head has been elsewhere.

I want to give you a few tips about where to eat in Hamburg – but I’ll have to leave it for another post. I’m in love with the city, and my husband did some amazing research and found quite a few spots worth writing about.

It’s already the second Sunday in December, and I’m still trying to figure out what to buy for my family. Right now I should be shopping online for some of the presents, but I just don’t know what to buy for all of them.

We’ve been baking and making chocolate treats for Christmas today, and the rest of my family is relaxing right now. I think I’ll join the kids for a Christmas movie now, and do the shopping some other time. Have a lovely Sunday <3

Coffee in Gothenburg

I almost feel like it isn’t really summer if I haven’t been to Gothenburg in Sweden. Last week we decided on a day trip this year with both kids. Unfortunately, the ferry had a little accident on Sunday, and we had to change our plans. We were all pretty excited about the trip, but we decided to go during our fall break instead.

I wanted to return to my favourite coffee spot da Matteo with my husband and both kids.

But I also recently discovered another coffee spot, Kafé Magasinet, which I’ve been wanting to explore.

Summertime food and drinks

Summertime Collage

It’s vacation time, which means longer nights outside with friends, cold drinks, lots and lots of cold brewed coffee, strawberries with cream or in a salad, homemade lemonade and some family time.

1. Summer
2. Must make honey ginger coconut popsicles from kinfolk
3. Cold brewed coffee and homemade coffee syrups from How sweet it is
4. Avocado strawberry spinach salad with poppyseed dressing from Gimme Some Oven sounds like the perfect lunch
5. A Ruby Red Grapefruit Ginger Cocktail from Edible Perspective sounds like the perfect drink
6. Time for parties in the garden like this one

May I introduce BRYGG – a Norwegian magazine for coffee lovers. I’m currently reading some of the interesting articles, which you can find right here.

But first coffee

coffee

It’s Monday morning… and all you need is a good strong cup of coffee to get you started. Today, I want to share a tip with you. A week ago, Maria Harmuth shared a beautiful print on her blog. I really love this print, and might even add it in my kitchen as well. I’ve got one a lot like it, but this one is so nice and simple, and I love the white background. Check out Maria’s blog, where you can download the print and other amazing ones as well.

Have a fantastic Monday out there <3
