I go for better late than never this year. I have always LOVED making these posts and this year was no exception.. it was just slightly delayed due to a lot of different things, I guess also called normal EVERY DAY LIFE, something that I kind of have not had since I started this blog. E and I moved back to BERGEN the last week of August, or I came back that week, E was still in OSLO ..but then within that first week we found an amazing apartment ..and then we suddenly needed money ..fast. When I came to Bergen that week I had kind of IMAGINED a month or two of looking for apartments and a job to pay the rent, staying part time at my parents house, part time at our cabin. But then boom we had an apartment and suddenly I also had a job working in a clothing store. And like that, I suddenly had moved to Bergen and gotten myself a completely NEW LIFE, a very different one than the one I have had for these last couple of years. It has its ups and downs. I think I'm still getting used to it.. but as I do get more used to it I will try to find a way to make this life fit into this blog.. or the other way around..

It's strange for me to look at this post, realizing all the different things that have happened this last year, but that is also why I do it. Time travels so fast and it's truly amazing to have pictures to remind you of all the beautiful things that have happened. Hope you enjoy it too!

  1. Så utrolig mye flotte bilder, og for noen fantastiske opplevelser du må ha hatt. Men nå vet jeg hvert fall hvor jeg har deg hen, haha! Kom på at jeg tror faktisk ikke jeg møtte deg en eneste gang i 2013 - håper vi kan ses snart. Blir neppe Bergenstur med det helt første, men kanskje du kan gi meg et pip når du er i Oslo?

    Stooor klem!!!

  5. SUPER that you go back and reflect - something we all seem to do far to little. And you do it in such a humble way- very inspiring.

  6. Wow, what an amazing year you had and beautiful photos to let you remind and treasure those moments! I wish you all the best for this new year. I know, changes and moves are hard and it's a new adjustment. I'm experiencing the same thing.
