This Year's Highlights - Life in the Valley

30 December, 2013

I spent a little bit of spring and most of fall in Hallingdal, my Valley in Norway. Spending fall here was surprisingly good and a lot more eventful than I thought it would be. I actually finished my thesis, something I had procrastinated way too long. It is still very new to me, that feeling of being able to do what ever I dream of, but I am feeling 100 times lighter than I did.

1. Running errands for Mom.
2-4. A day at Sigrid Marie's farm where we picked tons of of apples and baked the simplest apple pie there is.
5. A trip to the Wildlife Park with Mari
6. A mountain hike with Karin
7. Scenes of fall in the Valley.

I think that one important lesson from this year is that big changes are really tough, but really worthwhile. I never thought I could pull through so mange good things at once. It has really given me the confidence to start over, doing something I love and to always become better at it. I really love that feeling!

I wish you all a wonderful, happy new year! (I am going back to New York with Sigurd in the middle of January, so stay tuned for more adventures!)
