I’ll take a SIPP of this drink and tell you the truth. A day does not have enough hours. Simple as that. It is a statement that is repeated in spinning lessons I use to be on; You’re not running the day, the day is running you”. With kids, dogs, exercise, house, friends and family it will not be much time left for the blog. Moreover, the house has not been cared for the past week. So the only thing you saw if I had shared photos with you had been the world‘s biggest dust-balls. * laughs *

… And let‘s be honest, Who is interested in seeing dust-balls in an interior blog?

You will need:

  • Kale
  • Spices of your choice
  • A little olive oil

Preheat the oven to 175 degrees. Tear kale into smaller pieces and place on baking paper. Make sure there is enough space between each leaf. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with desired seasonings. Let stand for 10-15 minutes and cool on a rack. So easy and so good!

Ok , now I’ll tell you a little secret. Today is the penultimate day before I offcially return to work . And I cry . Tears , snot, you name it … I ‘ve gone from being the girlfriend in “the gang” who never cries, to be she that cries every day. Becoming a mom does something to a person. It turns life upside-down , and it gives meaning to life.

To ‘d be away from Celine so extremely long hours during the day tearing me up inside. I know . Hopeless to think that. Madness to feel it. For I begrudge my girl more than anything to spend time with her grandparents , her father and especially other children. Maybe I have become more selfish as mom? On the other hand, it is the last thing I am. Celine comes far before myself and everyone else in my life. She is everything. And it’s the way it should be.

Enough whining talk from this side. Now I will enjoy my coffee before I´ll sit and admire my beautiful daughter for rest of the day . Check back later tonight if you want some inspiration. Let´s just say that my inner party planner is awake ! 😉

Love Elisabeth

.. I eat lunch with my favorite cup from Arne Jacobsen, and my two favorite people. My better half and Celine.

Wish you a nice Sunday! It‘s so weird that it‘s Easter already .. Oh, time goes by too fast On the other hand we walk towards brighter times and that is delicious. Tomorrow I am going to throw me over the outside area again.
