Only a few more weeks before I am free 🕊

Last weekend we had breakfast together for the first time since the beginning of January. The rest of a half-eaten cheese, a grapefruit that had sat uneaten in the fridge at my school for 2-3 weeks, some sausage and at least 5 day old baguette. I want to downplay it, because let’s face it, it’s just breakfast and who really cares!? I think a lot about my contribution to this platform, because I don’t want you to feel inadequate the way I sometimes do when I look at pictures of beautiful apartments and expensive restaurant food and gorgeous girls with (or without) perfect makeup with perfect post-pregnancy bodies in bikinis and hats with their back turned to the camera in a glorious landscape... you know what I’m talking about. I’m not sure how to do that, to be honest. I’m sure I think about it way too much, but from the dms I’m getting I know this place can leave you feeling worthless and unaccomplished and like you’re living in a dump with an unruly child who never sits pretty for portraits in perfect natural light 🤷🏻‍♀️ how do we change this? Ps. I know my home is not a dump and my kid is the greatest! ❤️

It’s time to take a break. My thesis deadline is approaching and I am determined to get this done, so I can have some kind of life without feeling guilty about not working hard enough or doing enough and feeling like an imposter. It’s 2,5 years struggle coming to an end, and I wish I could have left this heavy burden in 2018. But alas, having a baby and all the sickness that comes with daycare has really taken its toll and left a deep mark on the year passed. Fingers crossed for a lighter, brighter and healthier year ahead ✨ If you are also struggling with something, I wish you strength to fight and the best of luck! See you on the other side ❤️

Have spent the weekend making and baking, getting ready for today - my favourite day of the year. The Christmas tree is ready and soon our home will fill with friends, the smell of glögg and æbleskiver and Phil Spector sounds🎄 Happy first advent! ❣️
