And whether you’re new to my world or have been following my work for some time, here are some random things that you probably don’t know about me.
In no particular order...
👉 I absolutely can’t touch wooden spoons. They give me the creeps. Just looking at them makes my hands feel dry and I feel the skin around my fingers tighten...yuck!
👉 I don’t watch TV! I watch MAX 4-5 movies per year. Since having India, my daughter, I have lost interest in watching shows and movies and prefer to relax by reading a good book (mainly history and Nordic crime novels!)
👉 I come from a suburban town in Iceland. I lived in only 2 towns and 3 houses until I left the nest… since then, I’ve lived in 25+ apartments/houses, 17 towns/cities and in 9 countries. I’m a nomad at heart…but settled in the Netherlands so me and my ex husband (who is from Australia) can both be active in India’s life.
👉 I’m a retired night owl turned morning person. I’m in the 5 am club and wake up at 5 am EVERY SINGLE DAY. I’m most creative and alive in the morning. I love being alone in the dead silence of the early mornings...just before the world wakes up.
👉 I absolutely love the color black! I used to only wear black clothes, but try now to combine it with some red, my leopard print and some green. Getting there slowly. Black just goes well with everything…
👉 I have an amazing older sister who is a microbiologist and the polar opposite of me (she also looks younger than me!). Often when I need an alternative spin on things, I ask her for advice. As we grow older, the more similar we get and now we share many hobbies. We’re super close...
👉 My daughter's name is India, but I didn’t pick this name despite my love for the country (my favorite country in the world). It always surprises those around me, but it was my ex husband's idea.
👉 My favorite color is green. Always has been. My aunt asked me what I wanted for my 3rd birthday, and my answer was something green. I LOVE this color, and I just can’t get enough of it (maybe it’s all about growth!)
👉 I’m actually more of an introvert than extrovert. I need a lot of alone time and space for myself. Otherwise I feel suffocated. So I make sure I retreat frequently in my cave to recharge my batteries.
👉 I believe in ghosts, aliens and elves. Most of Iceland does. I registered in Asatru (Nordic Heathenry) when I was 16 years old, then started to practice Wiccan and still believe in multi-gods. I believe in all gods… and I believe in higher power. I most resonate with Buddhism and Hinduism.
