goodbye november, hello new apartment!

today we moved into our new apartment and we are SO excited! it's a simple, modern and open layout with huge floor to ceiling windows and a beautiful deck. the view is fantastic (around the corner you can see downtown copenhagen in the distance), we are near lots of open space for milo and only 3 miles from the beach.

it feels really settling to have our things out of storage and i can't wait to decorate and organize. chris' work friends have already given us tips for finding vintage scandinavian furniture...YES!

happy turkey day!

it has been an eventful year. i had ups and downs and boring normalcy for sure. you always learn from hardships and they only make you stronger. on the flip side, when life gives you something to smile about then be happy and treat yourself (i do--often with sweets). i have so much to be thankful for this year, and feel REALLY lucky to be me.

i miss you US family and friends but skype and facebook (and email, blogs and twitter) keep us as close as you can be while across an ocean...happy thanksgiving to those on the other side of the atlantic!!!

baking for one

yesterday i made this recipe of chocolate chip cookies (with chris' help--stirring cookies by hand is a workout!) which was perfect since it only made 16 cookies. as the only dairy/egg eater in this household, it is dangerous to make regular amounts of baked goods since i would have no problem eating 100% of the entire batch...seriously.

when i was on pinterest, what did i find but a cake recipe for one! it's small and adorable and baked in a tin can! PLUS, it's chocolate and peanut butter...YUM. i cannot wait to try this out, how cute would it be to throw a party with a variety of mini cakes on the table???
thanks picky palate and happy 4th birthday to you! :)

and we're back

when we got back to denmark, it felt strangely like's interesting that although life here is sooo different than what we've been used to our entire lives, we are starting to finally feel like we are a part of this new life now.

milo has settled into city living pretty easily and like a cat, loves people watching from our window. i'm so glad to have him here since i am home a lot during the day and it's nice to have snuggly company :)
