20 days

I think spring is around the corner. I don't have to wear mittens when I go out and the light is eating its way into the winter darkness, vanquishing the long, cold months. It's uplifting and I am filled with joy and looking forward to even lighter days, to travels coming up and new beginnings. I think it will be a good spring.
I had a few days in early March where I was sick. I had no internet in the apartment that week and I don't have a television, so those days were a bit long. Luckily, my talented friend Amalie recently issued her second book, and as I had no distractions I was able to sink deep into her words. It is such a good book!
I know it's such a cliché this street, but I just can't get enough of how over-the-top-beautiful it is.
I had managed to clean the apartment one day and the light filled it wonderfully. Also, flowers. I have never been a plant person so it's come to my big surprise that I have started buying flowers - a lot. I love how they look and how they smell, and they make me happy in a very basic sort of way...
The other weekend, I went to Ordrupgaard with Kathrine. We went to see the exhibition about Danish painter Hammershøi. His photos are very quiet but subtly beautiful and his use of light is really impressive.
We wandered around the exhibition and had lunch and talked about how grown-up we suddenly seemed to be.
Finn Juhl's house is just around the corner and I still just want to move in.
After another flower purchase...
The morning light is making me giddy and almost euphoric.
On Saturday, I had brunch with my mom and seven of her oldest friends. I have known many of them my whole life and it was great catching up.
Yesterday after work, I took a spontaneous trip up Rundetårn. It was about to get dark but the view was as impressive as ever.
Despite missing Berlin sometimes, I really love living in Copenhagen.
