I was going to take photos and write about my first Julemarked, but I decided instead to enjoy the day, and not spend it squinting through a viewfinder and obsessively looking for photo ops.

Despite the freezing cold temperature, the rain, and the bike ride home from the train station in the snow, the day couldn't have been more hyggeligt.

Chai latte at a café, the Christmas Market, English tea, sherry, warm hospitality, engaging conversation.

And a new ring!

It looks huge, but it's actually much lighter than its platinum & diamonds predecessors... and so much more fun and less of a liability :)

What more could a girl ask for on a cold December afternoon?
