god morgen solskin!

it has been exceptionally sunny lately and i am loving it! no longer does it get dark at 3pm, and though winter FINALLY came a few weeks ago with some snow and cold temperatures, i will gladly bundle up for a beautiful sunshine-filled day.

yesterday i also passed my danish module 2 final exam, jeg havde en god dag! before i went home, i started at one end of the strøget and just walked around...window shopping and stopping to treat myself to lunch at one of my favorite places, paludan bogcafe. it is so cozy in there--like sitting in an old library, and the food is always delicious.

happy early valentine's day

i have to share this card i saw on pinterest because it's so awesomely pixilated and fun! the blog it was found on (how about orange) and the blog it was originally posted on (mini-eco) are super happy colorful blogs, so make sure to check them out.

we nicknamed the baby "bebo" and kept referring to them as "he" by accident, and lo and behold we were right the whole time! the other crazy part is i had a dream when we were still living in our temporary apartment and in the dream i turned to my mom and SUPER casually said "fyi, it's a boy, so think aqua and white stripes" and then walked away just as casually. AHHH!!!

145 days left to go...we can't wait to meet you, sweet little boy!!!

write more

while living far away from family and friends, we are lucky that technology keeps us so connected. with skype and facebook--it's *almost* like we never left. however, one of my resolutions this year is to actually use my extensive stash of stationery and cards and WRITE, WRITE, WRITE to my cute pen pal giulietta, my swiss cousins, and my email pen pal maeve (who i have traded extensive chaptered novels with weekly, thanks friend :)
