Heavenly Chocolate Buns

Heavenly Chocolate Buns

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 […]

Cinnamon swirl coffee cake

Cinnamon swirl coffee cake

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Two years later.

Two years later.

Two years ago I wrote this post and being pregnant again, I started worrying about the fact that I actually suffered (suffer? Hm) from Postpartum Depression. Will it return? How the hell am I going to do this? I read an article from 2011 stating […]

Vacation mode part I.

Vacation mode part I.

Hello I’m currently on vacation with Cas and Dines in Spain, which will actually be our last year in Spain as a family of three. So this year we plan to make it extra special. This year I admit is extra fun, while there’s restrictions […]

Happy days

Happy days

Oh Mondays, how you Grace us with your presence once again. This weekend Denmark was hit with one hell of a heat wave to put it mildly. My one foot met the sun in a bad way, but apparently when you’re pregnant your skin needs […]

Vanilla Panna Cotta Tart

Vanilla Panna Cotta Tart

Hello. I’m currently settling into my life as a graduate and enjoying not stressing about homework or exams, it’s rather strange but at the same time I am really enjoying all this extra time with Cas and Dines before L.E comes. Today marks my 28th […]

Lavender & vanilla custard and blueberry tart.

Lavender & vanilla custard and blueberry tart.

So, I’ve offically graduated from school. What a time that was and boy, am I happy that I am never going through that again. Now I’m focusing on getting into what I really want to do and crossing my fingers that I will. There’s still […]

Baby update

Baby update

How far are you? Today I hit 20 weeks, that means I’m halfway now and I should probably start getting stuff done before she arrives. It’s funny how pregnancies can be so different and luckily, I’m having a great second trimester.  Tho, I do miss […]

Blood transfusion

Blood transfusion

This pregnancy has got me craving all kinds of things. But really, mostly fruit… Which was funny because with Castiel, I didn’t like that and only wanted unhealthy stuff. But LE is more on the “let’s eat super healthy”- train, something that’s really nice because […]

Baby update

Baby update

Today I hit 16 weeks. It’s awesome, expect that Castiel got a bug from daycare and I’m now laying in bed on a sunny day waiting for this to go away. In February we announce that we were welcoming another child to the world, which […]

I’m back with an announcement

I’m back with an announcement

Hi guys Missed me? Good. So let’s talk about what has happened between October and now. I’ve been suffering from a great deal of writers block, I had exams, and Christmas came and went. Oh and it’s 2019! A year I had a feeling since […]

It takes a village.

It takes a village.

We consistently advise children to ask for help if they are having difficulties with something or someone. But we, as adults and parents, tend to forget to ask for help. Either out of fear that we will be judged, or we will look useless and […]

Apple Pie

Apple Pie

When I make my recipes, I work very hard on making them my own, with small touches and adding things that I really like. So with my Apple Pie, I add lime juice because I prefer limes over lemons and add a bit more cinnamon […]

Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary!

Today I’ve been married to the greatest man for TWO YEARS! Honestly, it’s been a long road but life with Dines has always been amazing and easy.  But it isn’t always like that, as any married person we have our disagreements and sometimes, arguments. We’re […]

Family Don’t End with Blood, Son.

Family Don’t End with Blood, Son.

Quote from Bobby of Supernatural.  I remember when I started my lifelong journey as a mother, a journey, many women have been on before me, and a journey many will be on after me. I remember the anxiety that arose in me when I started […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
