about me...

I finally got my "about me" page finished:

 (Praha 2008)

My name is Margitta.
I grew up in the Rhine valley in the south of Germany together with five siblings in an old-fashioned family. I joke that I grew up in the 50s even though I was born in 1975.
After highschool I took a gap year and visited France, Britain and lived for three month in Haiti.
Then I went to nursing school.
Two years prior to that I had met a norwegian guy at my brother's wedding.
That summer he visited me again and I finally gave in and became his girl friend :)

Three month later we got engaged (the next time we met ;).
Two years later we married (1998).
Four years later we had three boys.

By this time I had finished nursing school. My husband had worked for two years in Germany. We went to a bible school in Austria for one year and finally moved to Norway.
All three boys are born in different countries.

2005 brought a little princess to our family.

In 2009, while pregnant with nr5 we bought my parent-in-law's house and they took over our tiny one.

Looking back on the years gone I doubt the years to come will be boring...

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God,
 and his righteousness;
 and all these things shall be added unto you."
Matthew 6:33
