allright. finally. the espevoll familiy is back in business. knowing that this blog has been lying to you for about eigth months now have been hard. we are ashamed and vonbråten. but now we're here again, and we hope you can forgive us.. so much things have happened since march..at least it feels like it. so instead of waiting for hours to deside what to share, we found out that we will give you just a short update and show you some pictures from the very beginning of our little familiy in oslo.
it's 28th of march. we, peter and rebecca espevoll, arrive oslo and the norwegian spring.. and meet..SNOW. after spending almost eight weeks on the most fantastic trip ever, (yes..it was our honeymon!!) visiting nina in japan, the HOT fiji islands and the HOT beaches in sydney, it was a bit strange to say hello to mr.snowman again. but we survived. we were in love, had food to eat and clothes to wear, but no place to live! but..God is great, and our beloved friens hanne and thomas are also great. they invited us to stay in their extra room/office/babybedroom..hallelu. thank you jørgensen family! so 1st of april we entered their door with our luggage. we had a great time in schweigaardsgate..we played uno and participated in pregnant-yoga..hanne and thomas had just become pregnant with their first little kiddo, so that was a interesting time..(by the way.. just a few weeks ago sweet sweet elvira said hello to the world..=) ) on the first picture you can see hanne and thomas sitting on the blanket next to peter.. in front; therese (one of rebecca's bestwoman) and her boyfriend kristian
12th of may we got THE KEYS. the new housekeys to our own appartement. and the adult world. that was really strange but even more fantastic. olala. the tiny espevoll family had started their journey. for real. we started to fix and stæsje allready the same evening. ond so we did EVERY DAY the following weeks. seriously. every day! except 17th of may. 1st of june was our first night in our new, almost finished, appartement in vallefaret 18. we just had our new sweet bed, but after a few days we got some furnitures, and after three weeks we got a fridge! finally. so here you can see some pics from our very first real breakfast in kjærlighetsredet.
the summer moved on and we worked. at statsjobb, cafe le rustique and the elders home. we also went to some weddings and to freakstock - a festival in germany..where peter fractioned his foot..pitty. we ate schrimps on the balcony and looked out on the water(see the pic below), we went for a ride on peters new bike, went to the beach, visited the mountains in hallingdal, and our parents in porsgrunn and krokstadelva. and we stayed home. a lot. and it was lovely! we have played settlers for hours and been smiling for even more. peter and david released their first worship ep with their new project 'aperture' on their own label 'lystad familiy recordings'. rebecca started to dance. no, not started, but continued. she started 'two dancers society' together with crazy gunhild. it is dance..and feelings.. it is contemporary/performance/modern/dansebænd! and it's fun. probably did we do a lot more this summer, but we don't rember that now.
so....the autumn came to oslo city..(no, not the mall.. the city..) yellow leaves, candellights, stockings made of wool and blankets. peter is still working a statsjobb, but now as THE BOSS! rebecca has started on a bachelor in social work. aperture have been playing, extol have been practising and two dancers society have been dancing..at maria solheim consert and nordic fest. that was actually really funny. the espevolls at the same stage at the same festival! funny bunny.
peter has started to get his driver licence and rebecca have been driving too fast and have to pay 3000,- . even more car news.. peter opened the door at majorstua..and bang! there was a bike! so now we have to pay even more dough to fix the big "bulk" in the door. jippi aiai. (almost) all of our friends have been (or will soon become) parents and we have been to our first "married-couple-weekend" with sub church. strange. it seems like we are starting to be grown ups. but that's not true. to be continued..
