Cabining it -Ylvis style. Norway does not have the monopoly on silly weekends.

January 11th, 2014, 3pm

It was -0.5°C with overcast. There was moderate breeze.

The duo Ylvis have a video about going to spend a weekend in a cabin owned by your family. This was a new concept to me when I moved to Minnesota but apparently an old Scandinavian tradition. The video hits precisely on all the things that make this tradition quite funny and also quite delightful. I do not own a cabin but some of my friends do and we have had plenty of fun at them. It seems all the regions of the states have some sort of long standing vacation tradition, like cabins or going to Hilton Head Island or to the Hamptons. How funny that we want to vacation from our neighbors only to vacation with different ones.

For the first time in my life, I'm pursing a creative lifestyle full time. It's terrifying and gratifying. I drink, write, photograph, put on events and make things. However useless most of the world seems to find those things, I love them. And cooking.And dresses. Important to know.
