It’s official now: I’m moving. Most of my stuff is already in boxes. The old house is sold a long time ago and the renovation of our new home is on fire.
I’ll be the first to admit it; following big dreams can be overwhelming. Scary. Emotionally draining. Every day, from morning to evening there’s so much to do. I have to remind myself to take it one step at a time and enjoy the process.
As I wrap up my wonderful memories I prepare for a new chapter of my life. I’m so ready. Excited for the new adventures ahead. This is truly dream come true.
In just one week I will be sleeping in our new place; a historic yellow villa with dark green windows. The house was built in 1909 for a Danish National architectural Exhibition. The purpose of the exhibition was to displayed individual works by architects, artists, and craftsmen.
During the years, the villa has served as a private music-oriented school for kids, and for the past 44 years it was the home and studio of a famous architect couple who specialised in restoring old historic buildings, including Copenhagen’s Round Tower.
Restoring and renovating a house like that comes with a bit of pressure, and though my husband and I have renovated several homes during the past five years, including our countryside cottage, this is our biggest project ever.
What I truly love about our new home is the atmosphere. Even though it’s located in the city center of Aarhus – Denmarks second biggest town – it’s so quiet, calm and full of kind vibes.
Needless to say, I’m thrilled to move in and experience how it will be to live and work in this place.
Sometimes BIG dreams takes a long time to accomplish. When we first saw the house a year ago this move seemed almost impossible. We actually gave up three times during the process. But with determination, a whole lot of bravery and a lot of hard work we managed to make it happen.
I still have to pinch myself. Is this really happening? I guess I will believe it when I wake up in my new bedroom, plant flowers in the garden, cook in the kitchen, sip coffee in the backyard or take out the trash – you know, everyday life.
One thing I’m particularly excited about is to host some amazing in-person photography and styling workshops in our new home.
The June workshop sold out in just two days. The good news is; I will host two more in-person workshops in 2022 and registration opens on Sunday February 27.
I’m also opening up enrollment for The Lifestyle Photography Academy. This is an 8-week online course focusing on everything related to photography, visual storytelling, styling, and photo editing. So if you cannot travel to Denmark, this is the perfect chance to work with me.
