A big Sorry and a Good Excuse

Wow. I knew I had been slacking off with the posting, but when I just looked at the day of my last post, I couldn't believe it! Over a month without posting! What a messy beginning of the year.
I have had a lot on my mind lately, and time has been "swooshing" by me like crazy. Ever since the beginning of january we have been settling down here after our big move from LA. Rooms had to be re-decorated, a new car needed to be bought, bank accounts closed, others opened, etc. Even though we grew up here in Spain, it's taking some time to get used to how everything is done over here. Especially after living in the US for over three years. Not only the big picture: especially dealing with missing our very dear friends and the fact that skyping with a 9 hour time difference isn't as easy as it looks at first. But also tiny details, like shops closing from 2pm to 5pm for their lunchbreak, malls closing on sundays, dealing with the strange spanish voice overs at the movies, no starbucks or peet's in our little town, hell - I even miss shopping at trader joe's (more than I can officially admit!).
But anyways, all those thing's havent kept me from blogging. My biggest excuse is also the most amazing one. More life changing than moving halfway across the world. So, what has kept me from blogging you may ask? Well, it's more of a "who" has kept me from blogging! Well it's a little baby girl that has been steadily growing in my ever expanding belly for the last 6 months! She'll be arriving in mid May, and Mikki and I couldn't be more excited! So far I have had a super smooth pregnancy - and I'm already in the last trimester. The baby girl, Liv Nilsen Plange, has been kicking and turning ever since Christmas and it feels great to be surrounded by old friends and family, knowing how everybody is awaiting so anxiously her arrival.
Anyways here a a few highlights of the last month here in Marbella, Spain. I hope you enjoy them and I'll do my best to keep posting on a regular basis again. Maybe I'll share a few snapshots of the interior of our "new" old home.
Ta-dah! Lates belly shot (from last week) :)
