So summer, what a swell thing! Except the weather hasn't been acting up all nice and as my 2 weeks off come to an end, I find that I'm paler and more sun deprived than I was before my vacation began. But who cares. Because Johan is back from Nairobi, and my one year as a grass widow and living off potato chips (literally, as in I ate potato chips for dinner) is O.V.E.R. Now we're cooking actual meals and doing other couple-y things like fighting and going out for breakfast and riding our bikes to faraway places and spending way too many hours watching HBO. And I'm diggin' it :)
Anyway, let's catch up.
|When we lived in NY, going out for breakfast was kind of our thing (as opposed to the rest of NY who don't enjoy going out for breakfast at all). Same thing in Nairobi, come weekend, come breakfast out (as opposed to people in the slums who were like: "No, it's funny, I don't particularly enjoy going our for breakfast). Anyway, we never really found a perfect spot in Copenhagen, until, recently, we did. Someone recommended this place to us, and I feel hesitant about passing that recommendation on since there aren't that many tables at this place. Then again this blog doesn't have that many readers, so there you go.|
|Pretty cous cous. When you say 'cous' in Danish it sounds like our word for 'pussy', and somehow that joke never gets old around this house.|
|In real life this was green. I just turned it B&W to be artsy.|
|Johan's foot. Having a bed fellow is the best. It's one of the things that truly beats being single and able to fart freely and without judgment.|
|Johan made me an Aperol that looked like a syrupy sunset, and I was all "I'm grammin' this shit" except I'm not on the gram, and thus this drink garnered no likes at all. Sad face.|
|I made ice cream sandwiches one night and they were good but also pretty.|
If you have OCD, I'm guessing that you're FREAKING OUT over the neatness of my picnic 'basket'? You will, however, go even madder when you see this.... (if you have OCD, otherwise I imagine you're like so the tile layout sucks but whatever?)
|My BFF got married! This image is a little misleading though because it's actually his kid brother's beflowered breast pocket. But hey, watching best friends getting married is sweet!|
After the ceremony we went on a canal tour and I snapped this one of his mom, which I love. The photo and her.
|My dad and I went for a walk in the forrest and he spotted this tree, which looked like an oversized bonsai. I read in the New York Times that walking in the nature is good for people prone to brooding. Brooding is my middle name (not really), but after reading that article I've made a point of getting more out in to nature.|
|We went picnicking by the ocean with friends. Finding a bench and table situation right by the water felt like striking gold. The fact that I got so excited made me feel old yet good about myself. It's all about the little things, as they say.|
|Who run the world? Kale!|
Catch you later :)
