You have heard this before, getting married is easy enough...staying married is the difficult part. So let's not talk about that.
I don't like dramatic topics anyway. I got to thinking about marriage because my little boy turned 8 this week and it felt like yesterday when his dad and I said I do. While it feels like yesterday, I would not say that the years together was a bed of roses. Yes, perhaps you can say that if the roses had thorns and you had to bleed and get hurt at times. However, we are still here. We have gone through a lot especially this past year but I am looking forward to our 10th. We initially planned on saying our vows again...we even looked at platinum wedding rings together. His old band doesn't fit any more so we considered getting a new pair. We'll see what happens or if that plan pushes through. I love watching wedding proposals and same day edits of weddings. I love how the sweet moments are captured on cam!

Summer here in Norway is so much fun.
The sun is out and everyone is out and about. We've done almost everything from strawberry picking, to fishing to an impromptu road trip til Egersund. The only thing left to do is go to the beach!!!
My last post was 4 months ago. It was a difficult time for me. I am feeling depressed about being far from my home town. I had no job and I didn't understand anything here. Fast forward to the present, a lot has changed. It seems like the Summer months has been good to me and the Lord has decided to pour all the blessings for us. I now know how to speak and converse in Norwegian. I feel comfortable around the environment and I am getting used to the way of life here. Aside from that, I have gotten a job in a boutique selling women's clothes! Such a treat for a fashion conscious woman like me. Then my sister in law and her family from Singapore came to visit so we had a wonderful vacation here. It seems everything is falling into place and I am slowly finding my place in this new land. The kids seem to be well adjusted too. They know the language, they have met and built friendships and they are learning new skills daily. They have become independent and brave.
