The Beauty Of Fresh Flowers

Wherever life plants you, bloom with grace

Lately I’ve started to make sure I always have a bouquet of fresh flowers in my house. Perhaps lately is the wrong word to use, because I’ve been doing this for the past year to be frank. Plants and flowers are a funny thing to me. I have always loved them as a kid. I loved spending time in my grandmothers garden, I thought it was fun to water her flowers or plant them. The best part though was when I got to pick berries from the blueberry bushes. Then when I moved out (7 years ago) I bought a plant. I bought it in the hope that it would stay beautiful for a long time. However, I do not have the best memory nor do I have a green thumb. After a month or two I realized the plant was long gone – that’s when I knew me and plants weren’t going to get a long great. For a long time I didn’t buy any plants, I almost had nothing green in my apartment.

There You’ll Be

Today it’s been two years since Richard passed away. I stumbled upon this song earlier this year, a song I used to play a lot when I was younger, and it just sums my feelings up in such a beautiful way. I think anyone who has lost someone they love(d) can relate to each and every word on such a different level. (Click on the photo and it will take you to the song on youtube)

Late Lunch At Wagamama


Above you can see one of my faves at Wagamama; The sirloin shiitake salad. Yum! What’s even greater about this is that it’s the main dish with the least calories (about 380kcal) at Wagamama’s. Why is that important you might think? Well, I will get into that soon enough – and it’ll be a long post.


We’re already halfway through May, but I did intend to share what I’d like to do these next two months so here goes anyway; Better late than never I say! I did manage to do most things I had on my previous list. If you have any plans or things you want to do the next to months do share – I’d like to read about it. 

Tillykke Med Fødselsdagen Mormor

Today is my grandmother’s 80th Birthday. I am so thankful to have her as my grandmother, she is always one of my biggest supporters and she always has such a great energy. I truly admire her and I love her very much.

Happy Birthday Grandma 

Monday Mumbles

01. Hiiiiii. It’s been a little while since my last Monday Mumbles. I’ve been busy with exams and a big project deadline so I haven’t lead the most exciting life. But it’s been very productive. I can’t wait to get through the exam period, it’s always so stressful and time consuming.
