By the christmas tree

This year it has gotten out of hand. My christmas obsession. I wanted to bring in our christmas tree already in October and have been listening to christmas songs for longer than I dare to admit. Gingerbreads are frequently in the oven and I keep adding gift ideas to my notes on my phone. This time of year truly is magical. Especially with kids.

Today I got up early. We wanted to shoot before the streets filled up with people. Best time of the day. Especially when the weather is this beautiful. Now it’s time for more gingerbread cookies! Ta-ta!

let the gut be your filter

Health,17 November 2016

Hello you! I’m back home from a mini vacation with the family. We had a great time, but as always I love being home. Now I’m laying in bed eating chocolate while the kids are asleep. Perfection.

I love love love these pictures of Janita and I! She is little miss sunshine herself and lightens up any day. One thing I believe in is that so much can be achieved with the power of our own minds and actions. We have the tools to change many things in our lives. That is a gift to be thankful for. One thing I’ve started to re-think myself is what I invite, attract and surround myself with in my own life. I have amazing friends that I love. Both new and old ones. I cherish all the new relationships I’ve gotten. Who knew one could constantly tie amazing new friendships all through life? Wonder how many more inspiring and wonderful people I’ll get to know in the future? Hopefully many.


Lately I’ve made sure to apply this way of thinking also when it comes to social media. I choose to follow only people that make me feel good. It doesn’t matter how inspiring and good someone is at what he/she does or how many thousands of followers they have. The most important thing is to try to invite things into our lives that make us feel good and happy. Not pressure us to be a certain way, bring out feelings of jealousy and make us annoyed. It has to feel good deep down in the gut.


I’ve deleted many of the accounts I followed and will continue. It’s so easy and makes a huge difference! I’m tired of seeing picture perfect settings and lives, therefore I’ve started to follow new accounts that have something more than that. People that inspire me in new ways and bring something to the table that intrigues me.

Now ask yourself, should you detox too?
