Spring is here, and it looks like it’s finally here to stay!
This past weekend has been absolutely beautiful. As long and dreary as Copenhagen winters can be, especially those first months of the year, that just makes the payoff when spring finally gets here that much better.
Copenhagen springs are amazing. Those first days of sunshine, when the whole city seems to be out and about, everyone trying to catch some sun, taking walks around the lakes, or sitting in the parks. Copenhagen is buzzing with energy, flowers begin to bloom everywhere, and the trees are blossoming.
For me, this weekend was all about making the most of this beautiful weather!
Friday was the warmest March day in something like 30 years or so, so after work, I grabbed an amazing peanut butter and chocolate almond milk shake from 42raw and sat in the sun by the water in Hellerup – I actually managed to burn my face a little bit. Yup, I’m the person who gets a sunburn in March. IN DENMARK.
I met with a friend on Saturday to go to the opening of a new yoga store in Østerbro, GoYogi.dk, and not only did I get a pair of amazing new LuluLemon yoga pants at a discount, I was also among the lucky ones to get a goodie bag full of awesome stuff, like a hot yoga towel, gift cards for free yoga classes, a t-shirt, key chain, and more. It’s a great store right by the lakes, if you’re looking for yoga wear and gear.
Since the weather was nice, I took the opportunity to take the bike, and after some coffee in the sun, rode along the lakes all the way to Vesterbro for lunch at WestMarket – a post about that is coming up very soon!
Sunday was all about waking up early and getting things done – I’m an early sleeper and an early riser, and I love productive weekend mornings!
There was still time for a coffee at Ricco’s and some long overdue photo editing for the blog. I also fell in love with this pillow at the coffee shop – can you name the character and movie? It was my favorite movie as a kid, and it has THE BEST music!
I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend! What were you up to? Let me know in the comments!
PS: It’s my mom’s birthday today so HAPPY BIRTHDAY to her!
