This week

In my daydreams of moving back to America, sub-freezing temperatures didn’t really factor in, but, of course, this is the “worst winter we’ve had in a long time”, says everyone all the time. That’s what Denmark told me when I got there, too, so I’m starting to sense a pattern here…

Our new home is nestled against the beautiful Wasatch Mountains in Provo, Utah and for all of you who think that Utah is in the midwest, it might help to clarify that the Wasatch Mountains are the Western most part of the Rocky Mountains.* Denmark is probably the topographical opposite of Utah and more of the equivalent of Iowa so we’re a bit overwhelmed by the grandness of it all. One day I was on a road trip in DK and someone pointed out the “highest point” in all of Denmark. I honestly, did not know where they were pointing. It looked like a sledding hill.

Anywhoo, enough about the weather, this week we settled in a bit more into our new place, spent an hour and a half at the Social Security Administration and are now eating from silverware and not plastic spoons and forks. Here’s to the weekend!

*I worked together with a friend from Utah at Anthropologie in Rockville, Maryland for 3 hours a week for a year a few years back. Our manager called her “Midwest” in his Southern drawl. I guess 3 hours a week doesn’t buy respect.
