Norway Pt. 1

Norway in the winter time… It was quite a different experience! I Never thought I’d say this, but with the sun only up for 3 hours, I found the darkness really quite cozy. Walking around the streets lit by strung cafe lights had such a magical feeling, and made me a little love sick for my Bradley! He got a job to film in Mexico the same weekend, so he was unable to join me – but now we have an excuse to come back, because he’s never been to Norway before. πŸ™‚ It was so nice to see and spend time with my family – I weirdly enjoy being surrounded by all the Norwegian even though I cant understand a thing! My Tante Turid (my grandpas sister) is always such a treat to sit down and chat with. And I was surprised with how much time I actually got to spend with Lisa, with wedding preparations and all. We spent the first evening walking around the pretty lit streets catching up on the past two years, and laughing our heads off. We have such a goofy relationship, and I love it – I wish we lived closer. The next morning I took off and had a little adventure on my own, shopping in all the little thrift stores along the river, snapping a million pictures, and eating my heart out in scandinavian chocolate. (That’s what I call a vacation!) Then Lisa’s wedding day came and it was absolutely stunning, it was so cool to experience a norwegian wedding! The afternoon was probably the coldest shoot of my entire life, but it was so beautiful that I just couldn’t stop filming, haha! Eye candy everywhere. I kept saying “I know you hate me right now, but you’re going to love me later!” – I am so excited to share what I captured! Post coming soon…
All in all, It was an amazing trip… But I’m really happy to be back home with my B. πŸ™‚
We reunited with a really good cuddle sesh.
You can see photos of his adventures here, and more of mine here.

    It's amazing what simply being around family love can do.. even if it's in another language. My family lives in Eastern Europe and I have to say, our visits are always an experience. πŸ™‚

    P.S. I'm new to Something Devine, so hi!! I quite love it here.
