Lovely, enchanting atmosphere at the office

I enjoy the atmosphere here at JDL so much – some days more than others of course. That’s how it is with anything. But it’s here (the cozy atmosphere) a lot this week.
Generally, everyone out here is delightfully happy and cheerful. Perhaps because spring is really taking hold now – that puts all of us in a good mood.
But it’s something else as well: These last few days, Dorte has been completely engrossed in making the most amazing Christmas decorations!! They’re for this year’s Christmas collection. She’s completely quiet, which actually isn’t one of her trademarks! – but I can just tell how much she relishes sitting and pottering with it! There’s a concentration and creative calm where you can almost feel how one idea leads to the next. There’s something to look forward to – that’s all I’m saying! It’s SO pretty and different this year! – even if Christmas is a long ways away…
At another table, Susanne is making the most charming little bouquets for a spring article for the magazine. Grape hyacinth, pansies, daisies and forget-me-nots…Just the wonderful colors alone – and then her ability to combine it all to make it look just amazing, as if it were the most natural thing in the world.
They’re both humming away while they work…can’t you almost feel through your screen how cozy it is?

This actually also happens a lot when we’re on shoots. Sometimes there’s 4-5 of us out and about. Assuming that we’ve planned it well so everyone knows what they’re doing, it often happens that a similar enchanting atmosphere occurs while we work. It’s hard to explain. We’re having a nice time concentrating on the arrangement that we’re doing or the pictures we’re taking. Everything is quiet – no one is talking – but you can just feel how much we all love what we’re doing.
It makes me feel very privileged to have a job that I love and to work with such lovely people…
