The garden and our dogs


Krølle our border collie

I spent the day in the garden with my family painting and taking pictures of our sweet dogs. The weather has been so nice to us lately and i want to enjoy it as much as i can, our winters are very long and dark her in Norway so a bit of sunshine and heat is something that is very much appreciated. Our dogs where rolling on the freshly mowed lawn and soaking up the sun. We are going camping tomorrow and we are bringing the dogs so i will try to take more photos then.

Picking berries with my sister


Me and my little sister decided to go out and pick some wild blueberries and strawberries. They grow on side of the road where we live and a lot of them where ripe right now. There is something so special about picking wild berries and bringing them home in a little basket, every summer we would walk our dogs and stop every so often to pick some berries and eat them right there while our fingers would turn blue.

Sol Maria.



I thought i should start this blog by telling you a little about myself. My name is Sol Maria and i am 18 years old, i live in the Norwegian countryside with my mother, father, little sister and our two dogs.I love doing creative things such as cooking, sewing, knitting and lots of other stuff. I am also a feminist and a vegetarian. I have always loved reading other blogs and i am not going to lie i have tried this blog thing a couple of times before and it always ends with me forgetting it for a couple of months and then my interests have changed so much that my blog no longer is what i want it to be. So what is so different about this time, well this blog is going to be more personal and i am not going to be so strict with myself. I want this blog to be a place where i can post things that inspire me and the things i experience going through life. I will be posting recipes, DIYs and snippets from my daily life and probably a lot of random things. Our family likes to travel a lot so i will try to document my travels as much as possible on this blog. Well i think this is enough for now.
