I am a sucker for anything chocolate. So is my son, bless him.  Last week, Cas and I had our “Mom & Cas fun day” – which happened to fall on the day where nearly everything closed down again. Thanks, Corona…  And I didn’t want to be that mother who cancels stuff, just because something gets in the way. So Cas and I made a plan. A plan so sweet, that nobody […]

Life is messy, but not a mess

Life is messy, but not a mess

One would have thought that after nearly 14 months of maternity leave, you would be filled with creative juices. That you would have somehow managed to be better at balancing yourself, family and your passion. But for me, the complete opposite.    I did a […]

Here you probably thought I had forgotten about you, but don’t worry I haven’t. I‘ve just been enjoying the last few months of maternity leave. So here‘s an update before I start talking about cake. We bought a house: That is right. Our friends moved to a lovely place and the month after they had moved in, another house (ours) went on the market. Which was funny because we had actually stopped looking because we couldn’t agree on a house. But we ended up falling in love with this […]

Maternity bubble.

Maternity bubble.

I am currently in a full blown maternity and toddler bubble. So my time has become extremely limited to everything, even peeing. The past month has just passed us by and left me pondering about the great questions in life – “Where do you see […]

The first month.

The first month.

The first month has gone by fast since I gave birth and I feel like I should be tired, right? Having a newborn and a toddler means you should be tired and lacking sleep. Something we actually aren’t, but it can change so I’m just […]

And she arrives

And she arrives

As the dust settles and I feel human again. I feel I can write this. Let’s start this of by giving my husband the most love here. What he did Sunday was something I wouldn’t even have been able to do, our survival instinct and […]

The count down begins

The count down begins

Two weeks until EDD (estimated due date) and I’m looking forward to meeting her. Not the whole shooting a baby out thing, I don’t care people, it’s not that beautiful. But I’m getting impatient because we are three people who really, really want to meet […]

It’s beginning to feel like Autumn; pumpkin spice muffins

It’s beginning to feel like Autumn; pumpkin spice muffins

This past weekend our little family of three (yes, still three) decided to go to Virum and get some air from the city life. It’s nice, big, free and quiet, something I really need right now. I’m at that stage of my pregnancy where I […]

Cravings: Dates, banana and mango smoothie

Cravings: Dates, banana and mango smoothie

I managed to hit week 35 without some special cravings, but this morning I suddenly had an urge for dates. Which is weird, I hate dates. They are raisins, just on drugs and really sweet. Seriously, do they add sugar to them?! So to make […]

Hospital bag

Hospital bag

I am a firm believer that I am absolutely shit at packing. Even with this being my second pregnancy and all. Ironically during my first, I was told a lot that women always go way over their due date so packing was unnecessary until I […]
