After traveling 4,000 miles across the Atlantic, I made it to Washington DC. After driving 2 hours down to good ol’ Richmond Virginia I snuggled up in my much neglected bed and fell asleep. Due to my jet-lag, I woke up at 5am and went on a light morning run. I returned home only to hop back into the car and drive 700 miles down to Nashville Tennessee.
Our Christmas was a normal family Christmas, despite the fact we were celebrating it in Nashville.
I won’t bore you with any anecdotes, if you’d like to know more, just check out this movie I made.
My Christmas Presents were very exciting. I am now well equipped to survive an avalanche. I gifted a new down jacket to myself, because if it makes me warmer, it makes me happier. Lars and Stacey made the neatest gift that will really ‘spice up’ these bland dinners. I unwrapped a Buddha Board so that I can get my zen on. Grandma gave me a scarf I have yet to take off, and Auntie and Kayla provided me with some reading material so my brain doesn’t go to mush over here.
After returning to Richmond I was fortunate to catch up with a bunch of my favorite people. Between Chipotle lunches, Panera breakfasts, New Years Eve parties, Pizza dinners, and apartment chillin’ I got to see the people I’ve missed so much. Of course, there were some people that I didn’t get to see, but they will be on the top of my ‘must-see’ list for when I return in May.
And now I’m back in Norway, with three bags that won’t be fully unpacked for days and lots of skiing on the schedule. Peace!
