(re)capturing the fun & wonder

Did I ever tell you about Iceland?

On our way to Denmark this summer we were so lucky to take a side trip to Iceland for two days. It was our first visit there & we had pretty much no expectations … other than maybe expecting everyone to sound like Björk or Sigur Rós which isn’t all that fair, but we did note that there was a lot of music around to be heard on the streets and in pubs.

When Mom is away

reading to dad

I’m writing from a Bed & Breakfast in Washington, DC today & even though this is a quick business trip, I’m still thinking about my little family an awful lot.

When work takes me away from home I make a point of making sure all the laundry is done & the kitchen as tidy as I can get it (I am not a naturally tidy person), and I write up a list for Tomas of all the things the kids have going on — even though I know he doesn’t really need it. Read more

Learning French and Danish


I have a confession. I feel incredibly guilty that Tomas and I haven’t taught our kids French or Danish.

Disneyland photos

I thought I’d have energy to do a proper write-up today, but I honestly don’t. Instead, you get to enjoy the massively edited down photo-set. If you click on the image you’ll be taken to my flickr album where you’ll find even more (if you can stand it).

We’re back!


Just taking a quick minute to let folks know we’re back. I have over 300 photos (!!) to sift through before I can post any here (and they’re on an other hard drive…).

I’m looking forward to sharing our adventure in the next few days!
