Misha 9 months

Friday, June 29th, 2012

It takes 9 months for new human life to be born, add the same period of 9 months and a new born angel looks something like this:

SO sweet!!
Life goes fast in general for all of us, but for a baby it *really* is a roller coaster; there is something new every day…Misha is in NL at the moment and for him it was today riding the rocking horse! (or rather the rocking moose 😉 )

A reason, a season or a lifetime

Thursday, June 28th, 2012


People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime
When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person
When someone is in your life for a REASON
it is usually to meet a need you have expressed
They have come to assist you through a difficulty
to provide you with guidance and support
To aid you physically  emotionally or spiritually
They may seem like a godsend and they are..
They are there for the reason you need them to be
Then without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time
This person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end
Sometimes they die Sometimes they walk away
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand
What we must realize is that our need has been met  our desire fulfilled
their work is done
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.
Some people come into your life for a SEASON
because your turn has come to share grow or learn
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh
They may teach you something you have never done
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy
Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons
Things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation
Your job is to accept the lesson Love the person and put what you have learned
to use in all other relationships and areas of your life
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant
Thank you for being a part of my life
Whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.

Gloria Naylor: “Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go… And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over.”

W. Somerset Maugham: “Nothing in the world is permanent, and we’re foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we’re still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it. If change is of the essence of existence one would have thought it only sensible to make it the premise of our philosophy.”

To summer or not to summer…

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

You would not believe it when you look outside (at least, in NL), but summer has started today. 3 months of uhhh sun, fun and warm weather, I love it! 😉 Well, let’s hope so…!!

At least the days are longggg, especially in Norway, and especially these days; yesterday, June 20 at  23:09h UTC, was the longest day this year as the sun reached its northernmost position (a.k.a. Solstice). It will be nice to enjoy the long days when I am back in Norway coming week…

Misha’s first tooth/teeth

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

June 19 marks the day that Misha got his first (milk) tooth, or better said; *teeth* as two teeth ‘came through’ at the same time! (Tooth fairy get ready! 😉 )

A next phase, shortly following his first crawling moves (June 6)…big steps for the big little angel these days!

Song of the Day: Look

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Since the summer is apparently hiding somewhere far away 🙁 , we have to do with a sweet summer tune to get into the mood. Have a listen (and look 😉 ) to Sébastien Tellier with ‘Look’ (from his Sexuality album, hmm).

I love this tune, SO relaxing! Unlike most hot summer night tunes though, you shouldn’t close your eyes with this one…that clip, those…uhhh legs, oof! Hehe 😉

Question of the day; who has been modeling for this clip?? 😉
