Winter Wonderland



Sometimes little things like this are what makes my day so much better. After a few rainy grey days, snow finally arrived and made the city look like a winter wonderland. It was so cozy to go outside to the park and walk in fresh snow on the ground. Not bothered at all by being covered head to toe with snowflakes. Now, I'll just brew some coffee and take in the view from the warm inside. Have a nice Sunday!

100 days

I finally visited my family and friends in Puerto Rico 100 days after the passing of hurricane Maria. It is a relief to say they are safe and healthy, but just like many in the island they were affected by the damage caused from this natural disaster. Not only the architecture and surroundings look different from destruction but how their everyday life has changed. Things are progressing but at a very slow passe, the majority of the island is still without power, people have lost their jobs and many professionals and students have left sadly for better opportunities abroad. It really hit me when I arrived how things were not the same anymore.    
I just hope things get better with time and the people in need receive the help to find home and safety. Even at this difficult times people are still marching forward and that was a beautiful sign. It was nice to hear people were helping each other with their needs and support during the first few days, which were horrible without communication to know about your loved ones. But as for today lets keep things positive and not let this get us down. Everyday is a new day, the sun still shines bright, the trees are growing and the birds are still singing. That is very nice, indeed!

Summer Snapshots


 Favorite moments from this summer:
  • My mother & sis visiting for two weeks in the month of June. It was my sister's first time in Copenhagen and I so happy to show her around my favorite places. 
  • Roskilde festival, of course, was the highlight of the summer
  • Visiting GL Strand to see the Tove Jansson exhibition. Lots of Moomins! But overall, her art is very interesting and learned a few things about her biography. Now, I want to visit again to see the Stanley Kubrick exhibition which just opened. 
  • Last but not least, I enjoyed very much celebrating friends graduations. August was such a joyful month with lots to celebrate (and too many drinks), but at the same time a very stressful one.
Thank you summer 2017 you were a good one!

Kanelsnurrer

Baking season it's finally here so I had to try to make this babies- kanelsnurrer or cinnamon swirls. I thought it was going to be a challenge to make and for a rookie baker like me I found it quiet easy. I followed this recipe which you can follow here (dansk version) and try it! This is great for a weekend stay in baking time with family or friends. But it should not stop you if you want to bake alone, you can give it away later on since this ones hold pretty well for a few days. This will be my breakfast for the next few days. It goes perfect with a warm cup of coffee.

Autumn has arrived

Autumn has official arrived in Copenhagen. You can easily get all seasons in one day, cold mornings, rainy afternoon, throw in a little bit of hail just for fun and a really sunny evening because why not, let's finish the day on a good way. Thank you Denmark! Tak for det!

On a serious note, I love autumn in this city. Like how all the leaves turn in beautiful tones of orange and burgundy. I'll definitely will miss the flowers and greens that the summer brings but it feels very hyggelig to stroll around the leaves laying on the ground. Also, very hyggelig (okay I'll stop) to have a quiet evening and enjoy the colder evenings with tea and candles. Best way to finish the day!

Also, it means Christmas is around the corner! xx
