Quiet

yes.

YES
more of this.
more of the quiet moments.
more cups of coffee in the morning.
more chasing the light.

the quiet moments

I crave the quiet, the still. In those moments, when I find it, I try to linger, to pause, to breathe. Sometimes I try to capture it with my camera. To remember the fleeting feeling of the moment. Most often my quiet pauses are short. Little breaths in my everyday life.

So very important to me; for my life, for my work, for my faith.

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.

(Psalm 23)

Where do you find your quiet?
Wishing you a good Wednesday!

Sunday walk in the forest

hello sunday walk

The forest have been calling me. I love the colors and the light there.

light and shadows frosty forest

The thing is, I had to get out of our warm house and I like staying inside on cold days (well, also not-so-cold days too to be honest). Sunday I bundled up in wool and did it. I went for a walk.

My kid didn’t want to come, but my dog was more than happy to join my mission. I brought my dSLR with me to capture it all, so the walk was a slow walk. But, oh, it was a good walk.

It cleared my head and made me so happy + grateful for all the beautiful nature we have right outside our door. This year my mission is to get out here and enjoy it more often.

capturing the RED

This week I have been tagging along with Xhante and Andrea for their third installment of color//colour lovers. Colors makes me all kinds of happy! I love to go searching for them, especially at this time of year. And the fun of sharing my finds with so many people across the globe – and seeing what they have found too – makes it even more special.

Above and below are some of my favorite photos from this week of RED.

Scrapbooking | Jan 2015

As a member of the team at thedailydigi.com I get to scrap with the digi files early. This fall I’ve been so slow to scrap and have very few pages to show for myself, hoping this new year will be filled with stories scrapped and told. Below is what I made with the January files:

My words was written in Norwegian, here is what they say:

It was with a lot of emotions we left your first homeland to fly to your new home. A few days earlier we had become a family of two. I was excited and happy (and a little bit scared as all mothers are). It’s hard to fathom that it’s now 9 years ago we sat on that plane together, but looking at the photos it’s easy to see. You have grown so much, we’ve moved from West Norway and now we live on our farm. We are a little family tightly bound. I’m so glad it was you that was to be my son. I’m proud to see what a great young man you are on the verge to become. I guess the next 9 years also will move fast, I’m curious to see what they will contain, but mostly I’m looking forward to follow along as you grow.

This too was written in Norwegian, I tend to do that when I want to express myself more freely, this is what it says, more or less:

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve dreamed of taking over the farm back home, dreamed about grain and vegetables, about fields and animals, about woods and houses, about what I most want to do: run an ecological farm taking care of both nature and people. Never did I think it should be so hard to find the right balance, not having enough strength to do as I wish, with so many tasks that just wait for me to start. I’m still dreaming about running the farm, getting both people and animal to thrive here, but it won’t happen over night. I’m practice being patient and brave, soon I’m the farmer, so then my dad finally can get some rest and enjoy his senior-farmer days.

As always: THANKS for stopping by!

I like snow in January

Love the farm with snow on So, so glad we got some snow on the ground again. Hoping it won’t turn into ice and melt away. We’ve had enough of that so far in January. I want the snow to stay put!  Maybe there will be time for a little bit of cross country skiing too. Here is me hoping! #getout

I  love that white stuff Only the dog ventured outside Still snowing outside

We’ve been feeding the birds and lately there have been so many birds coming by our window. Kind of fun watching them swoop in and out. They are quick and jumpy.

Watching the birds

Hope your day is good!
Count the blessings.

Cheering | Oct 11th

From our vacation visiting with friends in the Faeroe Islands. We were on a football match in Tórshavn, cheering the team on. We had so much fun, but it was so so cold sitting there.

Cheering on the team

I have many photos from these 10 days of adventure, this is but one favorite. I really do miss our friends that live far way; wouldn’t it be nice to just pop in for coffee and be a part of each others daily life. Yes, it would! Visiting them for several days are, thankfully, a close second good thing.

Happy weekending!!

Favorite Capture is a series of post showcasing just ONE favorite photo. I love to show a whole lot of photos, I want to tell the full story – but sometimes, sometimes, just a photo is enough. Most photos will be new and recent, but there will also be some good old favorite photos every now and then!
