Sunday




Suddenly Sunday after a nice Christmas with family and friends. 
Christmas Eve was spent with the family with lots of food and gifts.
And we were lucky because Santa also stopped by our house during the night, 
when we were asleep, and had left some gifts for us to open Christmas morning. 

We have had some nice days visiting friends, watching our traditional Christmas 
movies; Sound of Music, Home Alone and Elf (my favorite) and just being at
home enjoying the end of the Christmas season.   

Tomorrow I am going back to work, but we have another short 
week , so it cannot be any better.  
Ada is coming with me to work on Tuesday and I can't wait 
to have my little helper next to me all day ! 

And hey, look what I bought this morning! Tulips.
I know it is not season for those at all, but I could not help myself :o) 

Now time to join the family for a movie and some hot chocolate

Happy Monday !

What a nice and busy weekend we have had. 

Saturday we had friends and family over for a Christmas get-together 
with  some good food.
A nice mix of Danish, American and Latino food :o)  
And we ate a lot. 

Ada also had a little Christmas party at her dance school and she was 
so happy, because she had invited 2 of her friends. 
It was so cute to drop them off and see how excited they were. 

Week of Christmas is here, and I am counting the hours to have a little 
vacation to celebrate Christmas. And tons of family time. 
All gifts are bought and there will be no last minute "stress" or running 
around for me. Just how I like it ! 

Have a great start to you week ! 

Coffee time here :o)

I like how the Christmas tree is in a basket. 
I have seen it a lot and I think it looks nice. 

Our package from Denmark arrived yesterday and it was 
full of goodies for us, the stocking from Søsterne Grene, Danish 
magazines and of course our Christmas presents :o) 

Have a great Thursday !

Nothing more beautiful than advent calendars or just 
decorations on the table(s). 
People are so creative and I love it and find so much inspiration. 

Can't believe it is December 9th already.

house, who are very excited, and can't wait for Santa to come :o) 

Have a great Wednesday.

Wow, suddenly it's Sunday. 

It is getting colder here and I really hope we will have some

Today I am going to wrap some presents and put them under the 
Christmas tree. Oh yes, "it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas"...

Have a great Sunday and Happy 2nd of Advent

Christmas Inspiration # 1




I love Danish Søsterne Grene and it is a store I always visit when 
I am in Denmark and always find a little something. 

Their Christmas collection this year has so many niiiice things. 
And I have to admit as soon as I saw the Christmas 
stocking I called my mother in Denmark and asked if they could 
please (please) send me one 
for our little house... and yes it is on its way here :o) 

Check Søsterne Grene's website here 

Happy December 2

Sunday 



Can't believe it is First of Advent today. 
We have not lit our first candle yet. We are waiting for Mr. J 
and Naisha to come home from New York City. They are taking some family 
members home, who came to celebrate Thanksgiving with us. 

I started to Christmas decorate today. 
I did not "go crazy" this year. 
Just a few things here and there.  

Oh, boy, Sunday is here and this long Thanksgiving weekend
went by way too fast. But now we can start enjoying 
the most cozy and lovely season of the year. 
The countdown has started.....  

Have a great Sunday night. 
Time for a big cup of tea and a Swedish movie on Netflix !

Lovely Day 





What a nice day. 
The day after Thanksgiving. 
The perfect day to be outside and burn some calories after all the 
food we had yesterday.  We have tons of leaves out there again, so it is time 
for another clean up before the family is coming over to our house later. 

Tonight our down-town is being turned into "Winter Wonder Land" where 
the theme this year is The Wizard of Wonderland. Besides the annual parade 
and Christmas tree lighting there will be so many fun things like an
out-door ice skating rank, carriage rides, bon fires, music 
and lots of food and drinks. And there will be a s'mores pit where 
I am definitely going to stop by.   

We have been going for the last few years and this year our little
cousins etc. will be joining us, so I am sure it will be extra fun :o)  

Have a great Friday !

Christmas Candle


Love Christmas Candles, especially the calendar candles. 
As soon as December 1 hits, we love to light ours every night during dinner 
and see the number(s) go down one by one. 

This candle from Danish Normann Copenhagen is one of my absolute 
favourites this year. 

Tuesday already and I can't wait for our long Thanksgiving weekend this week

Have a g.r.e.a.t day !

Suddenly Sunday 



Wow, suddenly Sunday. 
The days flew by so fast since Wednesday. 

I don't put up any Christmas decorations until next weekend after Thanksgiving, 
but yesterday when Ada and I went out and made a stop by Home Goods, 
bought the white candle house. I did not want to wait to put it up 
until next weekend because it gives the coziest light. So yes, the first 
Christmas decoration is up at our little house. 

When do you start to decorate for Christmas?

Have a great Sunday !

I love this dark grey colour on the wall and now I have the total urge

Hello bloggers and happy Sunday 

We are taking a nice and easy morning before it is time to go and

Have a wonderful Sunday

Today's (late) Wednesday inspiration comes from H&M
Love all these new pillows. 
I think it is time for a trip to H&M to check out all these niiice arrivals. 

Yay, we have all been off today on Veteran's Day.
