In Denmark!

Monday, August 29, 2011

After eight long months of waiting, I am finally in Denmark! I arrived just a week ago, but we have been so busy getting our new place together that things have been sort of a blur! Before leaving the States I visited with my family and friends in Wisconsin. I am so happy I was able to, because I have no idea when I will have the chance to return. Being in Denmark (finally) is wonderful, but also a little bittersweet!

 Views from our apartment

Justin met me at the Billund airport last Monday morning after a long flight path through Chicago, New York, and Iceland. I decided it would be best to stay awake to get used to the local time and ward off jet lag. I can't honestly remember everything we did this past week but it included exploring Billund (the town the LEGO offices are in) and Vejle (the city where we are living), as well as a super long day at IKEA and trips to other stores to furnish our new home completely from scratch. I am having fun, but also feeling a little overwhelmed -- new language, new currency, new everything! Since my head is still spinning from all the change, I have decided that for this first month in Denmark I will be sharing Instagrams of our daily doings and seeings -- please enjoy!


  1. Yay! Welcome. Sorry about the weather :)

  2. I most certainly need to invest in an umbrella or two and perhaps a raincoat!

  3. Jacque,
    That second picture looks too perfect to be real, toy-like in a way. Reminds me of the opening bit of Mr. Roger's Neighborhood.
    I am so excited for you (and Justin)!

  4. Thank you so much, Amy! :) The magic of tilt-shift!

  5. Velkommen til Danmark! I like the photos - thanks for sharing them. Kitty B

  6. I love the views from your apartment! Glad you made it with no problems :)

  7. Hi Kitty! Thank you for the warm welcome! :) More photos on the way!

    Heidi: It is indeed very nice -- and bright and sunny (well, when there is sun) too!
