I have been thinking about this a lot: How can I tell my blog-readers???

The thing is I have another life changing situation going on at the moment…

Anders and I are separating our ways and moving apart… Not to worry; we are still good friends and proud, very proud parents. But I guess we are just no longer the picture-perfect type of family. Looks like we are entering the modern-family category now :)

I’ve found myself a perfect little apartment. And from tomorrow and for a little while forward I will be busy painting, restoring and moving.

I know myself well enough to know that I will still find time to drop you a post once in a while. But now you know what’s going on… And this way it probably make more sense to you, why my blog posts have been less inspired lately…

Sleep tight and see you again soon.

    I´m so sorry. I hope you both can deal with the situation. If you separate in friendship it is great for Vilja. I hope she will get along with the situation. But I´m quite sure she will do.:)
    I wish you luck and many inspiration and power for the new part of your life and I´m looking forward to the posts of your new flat.
    Greetings from Berlin,

    Hugs, Brinja. It sounds like you are parting under the best of circumstances, but you are still parting and that must be so hard. My best to you.

    Ohh I’m so sorry to hear that – you seemed like the perfect couple..
    That said, leaving my ex was the best thing I ever did. All three of us are doing much better now. I’m sure you’ll come through this even stronger than you already are.
    Ohh and sorry about writing in English, I guess I got caught in the moment..

    I know that we do not really know and that it’s strange but I just want to say to you that you are a very creative and inspiring woman (forever!). There is no perfect family, anyway… best wishes for you and your girl.

    Big big hugs! Not easy at all, wishing you all the best and sending love. And thank you for sharing, that is not easy either. Know that feeling when dream of a happy family crashes -been through that, it hurts. But luckily modern families come in all shapes and sizes!

    What a lovely apartment! It will be beautiful after renovation, I know it :)

    Dear Brinja, in Poland we say, that if someone (God of course) closes the door, he opens the window. Artists feel so strong, thats the price for creating beauty, hugs. You all will be fine, life is long.

    What?! I’m shocked! I feel sad for you… but reading all these comments from your followers and one sweet message from Anders, made me smile… so good to read that you’re still the best of friends (and co-workers?).

    All the best,
    big hug from Holland,

    It’s a sad news Brinja, but you guys seem so cool about that. I have a feeling that you are so indepoendent and strong woman and find it great that you still stay good frend with Anders. That is the most important thing and natural ofcourse. You have very strong bond between two of you, a common past and your beautiful Vilja. Wish all the best for Vilja, Anders and you ofcource.
