A first peek at my new life in #Norway. 
I'm often asked what it's like to live in Norway. It's an easy question with a complicated and evolving answer.

#Norway : Living in a winter wonderland 
This weekend my part of Norway was socked with snow, and it's been like walking around in a snow globe. We got nearly a foot of snow in about 24 hours and it was cool to see how the Norwegians took it all in stride. But hey, this is Norway, what'd I expect? When I lived in Portland, ...

Hey +Melanie Coffee Looks like you are doing well there.  Thanks for the note.  All is well here.  The trees on the street as starting to change to the fall colors.   I love this time of year here and making plans to spend a couple days in the Columbia River Gorge and at Silver Falls State Park.  It's going to be a busy month!  All the best to you and yours!

The Top 5 things I missed about #Europe
It's been a little over a week since I've been an expat in Norway and I gotta say, so far so good! I haven't burned down the house with our fire-hazard corner of transformers and extension cords, my kids aren't starving in protest to the different food and I haven't gotten lost.

#Norway  is beautiful
One thing I can't get past is how beautiful Norway is. Whether it's the forest, mountains or simply quiet skies, it's one of the loveliest places on Earth.

#Theywillhavetokillusfirst  is hauntingly beautiful. Check your local listings, it's so worth it!
Music was as essential as air for those living in the west African country of Mali. Then the Islamist militants flooded in and banned music, choking off an integral part of Mali's culture. Instruments were burned, radio stations were ripped apart and musicians were tortured.

Celebrating the holidays in #Norway... It's not quite like you might think!
Many of you have asked what the holiday season is like in Norway. Well, here's the skinny: It's long, there's weird food, tons of parties and stiff drinks.

How was your Halloween?
Our first Halloween in Norway brought many surprises, especially since the country has only celebrated it for the past 15 or so years.

I have been going to chiropractors since the age of seven and hands down Dr. Eickhorst is the best I've had when it comes to meeting my needs. He's very talented and has a heart of gold. I only wish that other health care practitioners were even a fraction as amazing as he.
