Then a few months (if that!) later came a surprise, as my sister found out she was pregnant - and bippetyboom - after 9 months; my beautiful niece, Ella-Maliina was born!
(I mean, come on, how cute is this little girl! - here pictured with her auntie - ME!)
Why am I telling you this?
Because this is the pre-story - and the sole reason - for my trip to Qeqertarsuaq in Greenland, from wich I returned just 3 days ago.
It was a splendid trip, absolutely lovely - and absolutely freezing cold! (on the day we arrived we had a negative temperature of 28, with a realfeel of minus 41! (just around negative 41.800 fahrenheit!))
Still, it was absolutely amazing and beautiful.
I won't tell you too much more about the trip, but I will show you just a few of the photos I took (only a few of them, 'cause I shot close to 4000 pictures while we were there) - I especially hope you will enjoy the photos I took of the Northern Lights (as I spent ages trying to get it right)

Just outside Anso's & Nils' house.
The gorgeous mountains that you can see from anywhere in the village.
Sun sets behind the wonderful pastel-coloured houses.
The beautiful church where my sister is getting married this summer.
Sledge dogs and Icebergs.
Laundry and snow.
