Dear Blönduós and your magnificent lambs

In Blönduós, angels walk among us. 

On the 23rd of June, I went for a walk on the old side of town. Past the cemetery,  the road of beautiful houses and onto the hill. It was 11pm, golden hour at its finest when suddenly, a far away scream resonates in the air. 

The most adorable lamb comes running towards us. this tiny black and white, super curly haired baby jumps the fence to say hi. He was running around between my legs and the best part: he was ok with me picking it up. Cuddling with that baby for a couple of minutes will forever be a core memory for me.

Even though we got to hold and feed lambs at Johanna’s farm a couple of weeks before, it felt like this baby knew me, and came running towards me. 

I am now convinced that this lamb was a friend of mine from another life. And despite the fact that when we walked by on our way back he seemed to not care about us and he might never recognise me again, I will hold him in my heart for as long as I live. 

To summarize, 23rd of June 2024 was the day I fell in love with a baby lamb on top of a hill, in front of a sunset in Iceland.
