Wife to The Sarge, mama to two little Viking babies, believer in Jesus, Intactivist Lactivist. I grew up in Gig Harbor, Washington, surrounded by a family with a die-hard dedication and pride of all things Norwegian. In addition, we have three generations of identical twins; my mom and aunt being the original gangsters. It’s not scientifically provable, but I’m fairly certain I’m a hybrid clone of my mom and her twin sister. It remains to be seen if my daughter and I are identically matched but her temper tantrums and sense of humor all point to yes. The common family fear is that we’re all turning into our mothers and judging by the deeply ingrained mannerisms we all share, that fear is becoming a reality.

After college, I moved to Arizona, then North Carolina and finally England. I love reading blogs, watching the Andy Griffith show, sawing sweet tunes on my fiddle and graphic design. I am fluent in English and Norwegian but sarcasm is my native tongue.


I’m so glad you stopped by! Feel free to comment even if just to tell me your favorite flavor of ice cream. I love Dryer’s French Silk. I also have an addiction to scones with clotted cream and jam which makes me fear the day I move back to America and this delectable treat is not readily available to me. I know, life is hard, right?!

  1. I so love your pictures usually from when Laila visits. Your children are gaining such a valuable exposure by living there. You do such fun things when Laila visits.
    From Freya Skarin………..I knew you when you were wee.
