Just a quick word; I'm really really happy these days. It's been an amazing summer so far. I feel my decision to leave Berlin is the best thing I've done in a long time. Not that I was unhappy or didn't like Berlin, but being back in Denmark I feel like a missing piece of a puzzle has found its right place inside me. Like I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be. My relationship to Copenhagen has been somewhat bumpy, and a year ago I would never in a million years have thought I'd be moving back, but I guess I have a good ability to surprise myself. I'm enjoying the warm summer days eating ice cream, laughing with my family, having good times with my amazing friends and just appreciating Copenhagen, the water and colours of the north coast at my father's house, and everything inbetween. On top of that, I've had some good success'es with my writing over the last few months, and that's an energy boost you can't beat. So here's to a great summer, to that right gut feeling, and to the new chapter in Copenhagen that starts next week.

Congrats on successes! Keep up the good word. It's a tough market out there, but you're doing it.

It's also very comforting to read that you're feeling at ease now in Copenhagen. I hope the last bit of your move is going well.

ps. And thanks for taking me to Stella Polaris some 3 years ago :)

i'm so excited for you :) i love seeing these change of pace posts, like everything bad builds up to the good, and then its a LOT of good!!!

my post about 2014 (in december) is going to be a different tone than yours, but I hope I can take your good luck from this year and bring it into the rest of mine and into 2015. :)

Heidi; Thank you so much. It feels really great at the moment! I'm moving into the room on Wednesday, and I'm so freaking excited. Feel free to come over for a coffee and that long overdue catching up anytime!
And ps, you're welcome. That was a good day, we both needed good days at that time :)

Becca; Thank you! It really does feel like I've come out of a haze or something.
I hope things will clear up for you - I'm sure you'll get out of your haze, too. Some years, months or weeks are better than others, and sometimes I guess you need to have some sadness to make way for some goodness. Annoying, but true. Here's to good times ahead! <3
