Little Tornado

This little tornado is now all over the place, leaving behind trails of mess. As soon as she's eyeing an open closet, drawers, or the dish washer she speed crawls to explore what is hidden inside, before it is closed again. Many of them she has already figured out to open by herself. I'm too busy to keep a regular schedule with the gym at the moment, but following behind in those trails I suppose is keeping me in some form of shape as they are repeated several times a day...
Today she is 11 months, and it seems so surreal we will celebrate her first birthday in just a month. What happened to our teeny tiny baby?

Visiting Home

Denmark this time around was lots of strawberries, sweet cousins, old friends, dinner dates, summer rain, colorful art, salty licorice and a job interview; the last one resulting in much reflection about living in Denmark. Having lived away from home the past five years, going back on a visit like this one is a strange mix of feelings of fitting right in and feeling strangely out of place. I suppose it is unavoidable when developing ties to more than one place, combined with being out of the daily loop of one specific place in terms of all those big and small changes that are continually taking place. Nevertheless fingers crossed that things in Aarhus pan out...

Amma & Afi in Vienna

We had to skip the planned trip to Budapest due to study overload/job interview preparations, and instead welcomed Bjarni's parents to Vienna for the weekend. It was great to have them here, and together we ate a lot of good food, talked and celebrated our 5th (!) wedding anniversary. Silja took a serious liking to her afi, who was full of fun and never-ending tricks.
They brought along a nice colorful candle holder, which is looking pretty now on the table where both of us are working. Tomorrow we are flying to Denmark, and I can't wait to see some of my old friends, whom I haven't seen for ages. Yibiii!

Hello June

It's hot and humid in Wien. Time for summer thunder storms, Milchkaffee geeist and flowers from the market. Mmmm!
