Gratulerer to Oss: One year in Norway

One year ago today I stepped off an Icelandair flight outside of Oslo, with a 2-year-old who had slept for 2 hours on an overnight 10 hr international flight, a carseat on wheels, two carry-ons, four enormous suitcases, and a drugged nervous dog who had spent those 10+hrs in a crate with our suitcases. . . and we moved to Norway.  

And we all lived to tell the tales!


  1. Hurray! I totally understand how it feels to move to this funny little country and you have done brilliantly! You have accomplished soooooo much and I'm certain this time next year you will be delivering norwegian babies all over the Lillehammer area and living in your (finished) home (having forgotten about all the building work!)
    Well done Emily!

  2. my goodness, it's so impressive. you are definently leading a well lived life. the stories you and your husband will have to tell your children and grandchildren someday.

    such a cute photo, your baby is precious!

  3. A milestone for sure! Gratulerer!

  4. WOW!! I can't wait to keep reading your older posts! How cool to live abroad! Do you LOVE it?? Do your parents come out and visit? DO you still cc ski?? Good catching up with you!!

  5. Greta's smile says, "It was all worth it! We love it here!" :-)
