Wedding Party on a Monday

Heroine yesterday, sick today. It was actually underway. A giant cold brewing over the weekend. But then it was as if my body pulled itself together yesterday because it had to perform, and the moment we left the reception at around 5:45pm, it came crashing. Snot, cough, heavy head, the lot. A severe lack of proper sleep is to blame, I believe. That’s my sense. But then it’s great I can take a little nap now and then (when Eddie is up for it).

Nonetheless, what a day it was yesterday. We had been back and forth a lot, EmilyChristina, AC and I, about what we wanted to do with the book launch. Reception with friends and family? Event with colleagues? Just a private celebration for us and our partners? Or just nothing – seeing as December is pretty busy for most people?
But I’m so happy we ended up celebrating! Marking the event better than I did last Friday. It bloody well deserves it. It’s a year’s worth of writing. And how often does one write a book? Perhaps my first and only?

We received amazing help from several parties to make the day happen – great contributions and sponsorships. Hotel Danmark chipped in with an event space. A small intimate room with an open fire and access to a little patio. Moët et Chandon contributed with those beautiful pink bubbles. Kagekompagniet delivered a really handsome and tasty ‘naked cake,’ which it’s called when the butter cream has been distributed in quite a thin layer across the cake. A Table Story did the craziest table decoration – the idea was to make a mini wedding setting, that is, a table just for decoration. And then they created the wildest flower centrepiece for ‘hugging’ the cake. Incidentally, the two great ladies behind the concept have become my office buddies after Trine and Mille moved out. I’m looking forward to sharing the space with them! Confetti by Panduro brought giant balloons.

It was really such a fine day. And to those of you who are asking – the book is available at Bog og Idé, on Arnold Busck’s web shop and Saxo – and the places that don’t stock it can order it.
It feels SO good to have sent it off. Now it’s time for some self-care and child-cuddling. And, well, the very first (mild) post-natal workout. Wish me luck!

And as for bringing the baby to a reception? It started out okay, but then he got so upset. Too much noise, heat, lots of people, crazy faces (to a baby, that is) – completely understandable and natural that he said stop. I shifted him to the pram, and then he slept for an hour and a half. Very needed for the small being.
