Like all other top bloggers, I’d like to sum of the year of 2016 in a post! 🙂 Its great looking back and realise that lots of things actually happened in 2016. Its so easy to forget stuff!! And easy to forget to be grateful for all the good things you experience.
How to write a summary of 2016? I just look through all my photos on my Iphone, maybe a look through Facebook, and then my memory starts working…
The new year started with one of the worst hang overs of the year..haha. Meaning I had a pretty good new years eve! Me and Chris hosted a small party at my dads house (where we lived at the time) with a proper turkey dinner, lots of wine and drinks, games, a fire pit, sparkles and fireworks, sing star, river dancing, chatting and lots of fun.
January gave us lots of snow, and I had to do my fair share of snow shoveling for the first time ever. Chris moved to Copenhagen, and my dad returned from sailing in the Caribbean. I did lots of running on my dads treadmill and was pretty serious about exercise. Also attempted the 5:2 diet for a few weeks…. not so successful…
In February I had a fantastic meeting with my boss. I went in to the meeting to give notice due to moving to Denmark, but left with keeping my job and given the opportunity to work remotely. What luck!
I went to Copenhagen to visit Chris, and to see where we were going to live! We had a great weekend exploring and enjoying some time together after been separated for a while. Including a night at The Bella Sky Hotell (with an upgraded room!), and Valentines Day with dinner, drinks and a movie.
In March I enjoyed alot of time outdoors in the woods where I lived. I tried to appreciate the nature more, and take a time out from the world (including my phone). I cut down on tv-time and spent more time listening to music and writing/drawing.
I had a crazy trip on the “Danskebåten” / (cruiseboat to Denmark) with my friend Pia, we celebrated my fantastic mum’s 60th birthday and I made my very first cake from scratch!
I also had a big transformation with my hair! It went from very long and straight, to very short, blonder and with curls! I needed a change before moving, and I was very happy with the result!
In April we celebrated my little sisters big 18th birthday with a day out in Oslo! Finally aloud to drink alkohol publicly – yippeee!
As usual my brother, my father and my self did the Sentrumsløpet, a 10k run in Oslo that takes place in april every year. It was a great day, and to my own surprise I made a new personal record this year! I was sooo proud and pleased! After the run a group of friends went out for dinner and celebrated.
Now it was time for the big move!
But first I enjoyed some great times with friends. Dinner and drinks with a few in Lillestrøm, a trip to the Opera with Pia, and a “dance-party” with my dads band. Lots of fun memories to take with me down to Denmark.
In the middle of May Chris came to collect me with the big van! I had all my stuffed packed up, and was ready to go. I felt excited and happy for a new chapter in my life. A new country to live in, and whole new lifestyle! This was also when this little blog baby was born! I nervously posted my first post to Facebook on the 28th of May, and started vlogging. You can see my very first video here 🙂
June went by trying to settle into my new home. It was all new and unknown territory, but luckily the sun was shining, and we enjoyed lots of time outside on our new patio, exploring the beaches around, and the town of Køge. It was strange to work from home, but I enjoyed the freedom it gave me.
In the end of June I travelled to Paris! A birthday present to my sister from our dad, and my brother and me was lucky enough to travel along. We had an amazing time there, and you can check out my vlog from the trip here. Lots of wine, good food, walking (alot), tattoos (!), and sightseeing.
I think that is more than enough for one post!
