This time of year is magical, with heat sweeping through every now and then as the sun paint the landscape in gold and yellow, with sideways cold rain that frosts daring little green buds and mystical fog that rolls in across the fjord and casts a spell on my island.
Although my office is wherever the job takes me, and much time is spent in my island kitchen shooting for clients, luckily my days have some pockets of free time here and there that I treasure.
When on a bike ride to the mainland the other day, I slowly made my way along the harbour. Can I just say that I love that smack bang in the middle of our city is this beautiful spot where we can take a swim in the fjord from!
Almost every city that has some connection to the ocean has beaches and small staircases leading right out into the water, making it easy to dip your toes in.
I took my time and strolled slowly next to my bike that day taking it all in.
I love how moments like this sets my mind free.
It opens up for ideas to flow, for honest thoughts to surface, and it feeds both heart and mind with such soft beauty that I almost tear up each time of sheer gratitude.
I think I need moments like that, in which I truly feel alive, a bit raw and very peaceful inside.
…but then hunger calls…
Since I embarked on the whole 60 days of lunch project my days pretty much all evolve around food, nonstop!
In addition to the other food related styling and photo jobs I can now say that I from time to time, although very rarely:) feel like not eating!! Or Cooking!!
But, like I said, very rarely;)
I have many dreams and projects that I’d like to embark on, but while working on and towards them all I absolutely love working as a visual story maker, taking photos, styling, creating and designing.
During and after all the hard work, it’s all very rewarding:)
But I’ll add this, if it wasn’t for the people in my life, the ones I love and care for, the friends and family that are supporting and motivating me, any job or success is life wouldn’t have been as much fun.
Thank you all for such wonderful feedback on my work and for all the lovely comments both here and on instagram in regards to my little food project.

Now, are you ready for some adventure?
Next week I’m taking you with me on a spontaneous road-trip along the coat of Italy from the north all the way down to Napoli!
Are you in?
I promise there will be food…and some Tuscany;)
