Hello! ↠ I’m Liz. ☽ In 2007, I got divorced, quit my job, sold everything, and, a year later, fell in love with my best friend, Lina. After marrying her + moving to Sweden, this space was created as a way to document my life as an American expat.  Over the years, it has continued to be a place where I share my adventures, experiences, and musings; but it has now evolved into the platform from which I share my passion for creating a slow, mindful + meaningful life.

As a contemplative soul coach + mystic, I inspire others to discover + create their own life of meaning + magic by sharing stories of mine. My work is grounded in the belief that we are created to live an authentic life, free to be ourselves; and I share my own journey to this freedom of bliss to inspire you on yours. So, grab a cup of coffee or a yummy drink + settle in. It’s so nice to have you here! ✺

3 ways July is medicine for your wild soul

4 Jul 2018 lists, north carolina

In my world, July is like the space between. It’s not a transition month – in my opinion, like June or September are as they move us through the seasons. And, yet, it transitions us from the first half of the year to the second. It’s a month that just is – and I mean that in the best way. For me, it is the month of summer vacation, so the energy that it brings to me is pure medicineRead More

And right now we are in the midst of a turning point, which is shifting us from the beginning of 2018 to the last 6 months of the year. It’s the perfect timeRead More

This homemade peach infused gin is my new fave summer cocktail

26 Jun 2018 gatherings

When it’s summer, I pretty much enjoy peach-flavored anything. So, peach infused gin just seemed like a no-brainer next thing to try to me. I like a good gin + tonic, but when I made one the other night, I just felt like it lacked some flavah – know what I mean? I I had a little lime with it, which was yummy, but I wanted something more. Later on the same day, I was rummaging through my refrigerator andRead More

Graduation: One of the finest Swedish traditions there is

18 Jun 2018 gatherings, home + life

Two weeks ago I said goodbye to my first class of babies at their graduation. Ok. Let me back up a bit… In January 2016, I started a new job. It was the perfect combination of two things I love: working with young people + not being a teacher. You see, at this new job, it was my task to support, inspire, coach, and counsel high school students. But, I was not hired as a teacher. Instead, I was hiredRead More
