Once again, another week has come and gone with lots to be grateful for! This week has actually flown by ridiculously quickly. Had a trip to Copenhagen there and back within 24 hours from Tuesday to Wednesday. Then headed back to Copenhagen on Friday to spend the weekend with the family. A weekend filled with Christmas "hygge" and we even celebrated our first "traditional" Thanksgiving. Well not completely traditional because we had to do it on Saturday instead of Thursday, but with no holiday over here, no one has the time to do it on Thursday. It ended up being a huge success *phew*, minus the very very over stuffed tummies. I did not feel good at all last night or most of the day today. Honestly didn't feel like myself today until I got home from the gym this afternoon. But never-the-less I loved giving it a try and I hope we make it a little tradition to celebrate Thanksgiving here in Denmark so we can keep little parts of American tradition alive in our lives. And a huge shout out to my awesome mama for completely going along with the whole idea and being amazing in the kitchen!
But I skipped ahead. Friday night we went into Tivoli to see the lights and it big plates of delicious Wagamama! The lights were amazing though. You could barley recognise the park because they had so much going on to celebrate the holidays! It was also a perfect night for it, not too cold, no wind and most importantly there wasn't any rain! In all fairness though, we've actually had beautiful weather all week - which is definitely something to be grateful for this time of year!
And before the Thanksgiving food coma, we went to two Christmas markets in the city and then to Eataly which just opened in Copenhagen a couple of weeks ago! It was almost like we were back in NYC during the holidays and taking a pit stop in Eataly for some lunch! Super excited that it's come to Cope, has such a fun vibe and it smells amazing!! We shared some pizza for lunch and I highly recommend it! :)
I write mostly about the weekend because the week pretty much consists of all the boring routine stuff - and my days are spent mostly taken up with exam prep and exam writing from now on. Have final week of classes this upcoming week... it is truly impossible to describe how quickly this semester has flown by. I honestly feel like I just started! And now it's almost Christmas!
1. Having my beautiful, wonderful, loving family only three hours away
2. Celebrating (Danish) Thanksgiving
3. Starting a new tradition of seeing the Tivoli Christmas lights
4. Seeing my little brother laugh (when he's really trying not too)
5. Sunday night, sitting on the couch with the boyf snuggled up in a blanket and just enjoying our cozy little Christmas decorated apartment
A happy first Sunday of Advent to you all and I hope you all have a great start to your Monday tomorrow!
With love, Cam xo
