Ticket booked to Morocco!

Morocco, Marrakesh, decorated arched door

So after some thought (thanks for your input!), I’ve decided to head to Morocco next month! India solo seemed a bit daunting and Portugal is so close I can really go anytime. I’m flying direct from Copenhagen to Marrakech in late November and will have four full days to explore the city. I can’t wait to wander the souks and splurge on a beautiful rug or two! If you’ve been to Marrakech before, I’d love to hear your tips. Do you have a guide you’d recommend? Where should I dine/shop/explore…? I will be sure to share my Marrakech favorites upon my return!

Next stop India…?

Hi guys. Sorry for the radio silence, I’ve had a bit of a rough week. I found out that my thyroid is still out of whack and our IVF plans have been delayed yet again. At the earliest, we’ll now be doing our first round of IVF over Christmas (nothing like hormone injections and eggnog!). With all the sadness, however, it did occur to me that the six week delay could mean an opportunity for more pre-baby travels. Simon has to work, so I’d be traveling solo. I’m thinking maybe India…?! Have any of you been to New Delhi? Jaipur? Any tips? I’m also open to other suggestions. Maybe Morocco or a week in Portugal? Let me know your thoughts. Thanks for all of your kind words and support as well—you help me keep my chin up!

Exciting News: We found Our Dream Apartment!

I’ve been bursting at the seams to tell you: we signed a lease on a Danish apartment! Early last week we stumbled upon a lovely, sunny unit in Copenhagen’s sweet Valby neighborhood and tomorrow we pick up the keys. It’s ridiculously roomy (1,200 square feet…!) and has a proper dining room with the prettiest french doors opening to the living room (see above). Across the street is a gorgeous green park called Søndermarken where lots of dogs play—I think Alfred will love it! I can’t wait to move in tomorrow and begin decorating. I’ll be sharing the process here on the blog as well as on Pinterest and Instagram! Stay tuned!

Initial Thoughts on Copenhagen

Happy Wednesday everyone! I thought I would give you a life update. We arrived in Copenhagen on Saturday morning and in short, we love it. For the first few months, we’ve rented a teeny tiny apartment in the city center (known in Danish as Indre By) and I love being so centrally located. In less than ten minutes by foot we can be at the Rosenborg Castle, Amalienborg Palace, Nyhavn harbor, and countless museums and restaurants. Below, I’ve highlighted some of my initial observations about Denmark.

And We’re Off!

We’re headed to the airport in 30 minutes! Alfred is a bit anxious about the flight, but I keep reassuring him that everything will be just fine. I can’t believe the next time I write we’ll be residents of Denmark! Have a lovely weekend and if you like, follow my adventures in our new homeland on instagram. Wish us luck! xo Katie
