I'm born in Norway, but my heart has found it's home in both Spain and the USA. As long as I have the people I love around me I could probably be happy almost anywhere. I love all the sweet things in life: to travel, to eat well, to spend time with friends and family, to shop (sometimes only through windows) and to create beauty around me. I'm a talker, but also enjoy quiet hours spent alone with a book. I laugh often and loud. And I'm drawn towards anything that sparkles! My friends tease me about that... More than anything I want my life to be meaningful - whatever that entails...
The story of a lonely girl, an old wooden bench and an unlikely friendship...

Hot woman in a cold place
I'm back in Norway after our cruise. Unfortunately I have gotten a terrible flue that has put me in bed for a week. Today the fever has peeked at 104.9 and I feel quite exhausted and HOT! My hubby is away and my awesome 12 year old is taking very good care of me. Outside it is MINUS 10 degrees Fahrenheit and I'm grateful my home is warm and comfortable. I'm hoping to find my bloginspiration soon. Until then: take care and be blessed y'all (hey...I used to live in Tulsa!)
I took this photo out my kitchen window today before I crashed on our couch. It is quite beautiful here!
I'm a woman, mom, wife and teacher. My life is busy and stressful at times, boring quite often and there are plenty of little things that I worry about around midnight lying in bed. Too often I find myself focusing on all the things that I'm unhappy about. I'm sometimes gloomy when it's raining and I'm not excited about early mornings. I wish I would exercise more, eat less, earn more, stress less, listen more, talk less. Yes, there are plenty of things that I would like to change!
But I am also full of hope and dreams. I believe in happy endings and love everlasting. I'm surrounded by people who care about me and who accept me just as I am. I trust that there is someone holding my life in His hands and I do enjoy all the blessings that I have. Writing this blog I'm reminding myself that life is really wonderful and that little things can turn an ordinary day into an extraordinary adventure.
I'm excited to introduce you to all the things that make my life sweeter. Hopefully it will sweeten your day as well!
