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

Selinevej


For the last glimpse of summer in Copenhagen, I had to go get some flowers before they vanish with the winter cold. It was a not surprisingly windy and grey summer day. But picking flowers around the field like a child with a friend - priceless!
