Waiting for you...

...was soooo hard but you were totally worth the wait !!

Looking back to the wait I see now that it was very short, only 14 month from the decision to adopt until we had her in our arms (7 months from LID to Referral). But the wait was sooo hard because we had been waiting for so many years before the 14 months. Now we have been waiting for about 2 years for a baby sister or a baby brother !!!!!

The first ski trip

A year ago, Matthildur had her first ski trip and had a blast. Unfortunately we have not been able to go again...but hopefully soon. Catherine designs just released a new kit, Winter retreat and it is just perfect for this special moment :-) She also has a matching freebie on her blog, check it out !!

Some news !!!

Am I the luckiest or what !!!!! Catherine (Catherine designs) contacted me and asked if I could be on her guest CT. She is such an amazing scrapper and a designer so the decision was not hard. She has been my inspiration since I started digiscrapping and her gallery was one of the first I bookmarked :-) So....yay !

My newest LO is very dear to me. It is a picture of my daughter Matthildur and her best friend Sigga Bára. Their friendship is very special and they love each other very much, only 5 days apart, both from China and came home together and have this special relationship that I wanted to capture. The text is from an Icelandic song and says: A trusted friend can make a miracle !

That´s all for now my dear friends, off to bed !

Must blog, must blog...

I´m way behind !!

The other day I was tagged by Sarah and Siw Aina

Well....6 (un)interesting things about myself...

- I´m a certified baby swimming teacher

- I spend way too much time in front of the computer and the tv...I´m a couch potato...hehe
- I have a hot tub in my garden
- My daughter is 4.5 years old and is adopted from China...and she is just perfect !
