Paris // the yellow film, part III

A year ago Sølve and I were in Paris with a couple of our dearest friends. Needless to say, it was as perfect as Paris in spring can be. The only thing I was not at all happy about, was the slide film that  got ruined during development. I got the impression it was so ruined that it was discarded of, but then suddenly it reappeared! As you can see from the yellow color tone, it has indeed been ruined in the development process, but all the motifs and memories are still there. So, here you are; Paris in yellow, part III of III (here are parts I and II).

life, week 16 - in which I share exciting news

After the Easter vacation my belly suddenly got noticeably bigger. 

early birds // ready for a day of lectures 

home bound // she loves the bike trailer

I'm glad to have come to this stage of the pregnancy; no longer a need to hide the bump. It is official: Sara is becoming a big sister at the end of September.

Helping her pappa with the final preparations before the law seeding.

Wednesday 7 am

sun stripe snack

the joy of a perfectly ripe avocado // guacamole to be

An evening walk before the rain, and then ice cream and Rita on Netflix.

spring intrudes and I don't mind

home bound // so happy we live close enough to Sara's kindergarten so she can go by balance bike

Friday 7 am

so blue #nofilter

Oslo bound

date night at Villa Paradiso

I can not remember the last time I slept until 0930 am. And then hotel breakfast. Such luxury!

our Saturday in Oslo

Champagne reception at the top of Grand hotel. Cool yet freezing.

all dressed up and big smiles

baby's first wedding // 17 weeks pregnant in my mum's cocktail dress from the 70s

a rare treat: cortado at a café

such lovely wooden tables at Kaffebrenneriet

spring has sprung // more in Oslo than Stavanger

magnolia galore

lykken = happiness

I love watching earth from an airplane window

Pretty excited about her travel gift from mamma and pappa: pink light up sneakers with glitter - I never thought we would buy something like that!

- a mummy holding hands with her toddler son - she was wearing a sweatshirt with a dinosaur pattern; I wonder if her son was jealous
- snacking on physalis
- overhearing suite wearing men speak French at the hotel during breakfast - made me feel like being on vacation in France
- watermelon for breakfast
- Friday date at Villa Paradiso with the husband
- people watching on the streets of Oslo
- magnolia trees in full bloom close to the castle in Oslo
- visiting the beautiful Aesop shop in Oslo to get some nice products for my face

life, week 15

The last day of Easter vacation. Coffee and old D2 magazines in bed. Slow and easy, just what I need before the everyday life whirlwind starts again.

First ever family bike ride! A test ride from home to my work, nearly 10 km one way. Ready for action tomorrow. I think. (I wasn't.)

Visiting mamma's work. First drawing on the blackboard, then running in the sports hall. Oh the joys of a 3 year old.

Not completely made from scratch, but there is fish and lots of vegetables. Keeping it real on a busy week day.

evening work - we meet again

Stord bound - last time for studies

student life // the last supper

While I was at Stord for studies, Sara helped pappa prepare the garden for lawn seeding. She loves being her pappa's "byggevenn" (construction friend).

A grilled ham and cheese sandwich is always a winner in my book.

Off to celebrate her friend's fourth birthday

Finally managed to prioritize time for an evening walk around the neighbourhood lake. Hoping it will be a habit.
