Right now


It’s icy and foggy and dark outside. I’m inside drinking my coffee. Trying to stay focused at tasks at hand. Missing the sunny days of summer like crazy. Made sure that I choose the cup with yellow stripes. Gathering energy where I can. Colours makes me happy.

Only one short week and Advent season is upon us. I’m not feeling it. Later today we are going to rehearse for the light service we always have at our church on the first Sunday of Advent. I love working with the youths, preparing who’s going to read what and how we’re going to do the candle light procession this year. Lots of thinking and preparing behind me and before me. It’s going to be good.

Fighting the darkness the only way that really works: by light.

Spread light

And colors.
Have a blessed Tuesday!

Last summer

These last couple of days we’ve had kind of nice weather. But not nice warm weather, there seems to be a chill in the air no matter how much the sun tries to shine (#norwegiansummer).

I miss the nice warm summer weather.

Looking through some of my photos, I found quite a few from our visit to dear friends + the western part of Norway last summer. The first part of that vacation had such good warm days, almost too warm honestly. But I want more of such days: summer like we dream about on cold winter days.

Pretty please!

Summer habit

Lime(z) coffee mornings

I’m a summer lover. I want the season to last for weeks on end with warm, sunny days. This is not always the reality of our Northern summer. (Honesty: it never is.) So this summer I’m adamant to spend as much time as I possibly can, on our good warm days, enjoying the sunshine throughout the day. Even if I only can squish in 5 or 10 minutes at a time.

I’ve made it a habit to bring my morning coffee outside to enjoy it in the sunshine. I’m also snapping a few photos with my phone to capture these small moments of the summer feeling I so highly crave. Hopefully this will also help me embrace the season as it is.


I usually share a couple of photos from our day on instagram, quite a few of them have been coffee-cup and sunshine related lately. I call them #limezcoffeemornings

What summer habits do you have?
