Day 19: Merry Swedish Christmas Eve

24 Dec 2017 gatherings

In Sweden, we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve. It’s an entire day filled with food, music, family, and traditions. And, this year, is a “Sweden year” for me + Lina; so we’ve taken the train down to Norrköping to spend the weekend with Lina’s parents, siblings, nieces/nephews, cousins, and more. It’s a full house, with lots of classic Swedish celebrations, all day long. And I thought I’d share just a little of it with you all. But, first, what’s aRead More

How I became the leader of a tribe of elder women

13 Oct 2017 gatherings

I need to tell y’all what’s going on in my life. I want to tell you. It’s something I haven’t been talking about, but that is slowly becoming something very, very important to me.

15 Sep 2017 gatherings

I’m so lucky to have the friends I have. And I’m talking to all of you out there, near and far. And I’m even luckier + happier when they come to visit for the weekend. Especially when it’s friends who live in other countries that I don’t get to see that often. That’s the freaking best. (Hint hint to all of you who haven’t made it to Sweden yet. Hehe.). And I guess you could say that my home hasRead More

Well, hello there, my Monday readers! Time flies by faster + faster, and it often seems like it’s hard to find the balance of it all, doesn’t it? I mean, seriously, it’s nearly mid-July and summer is only slowly creeping in up here in Sweden. Life is moving quickly, and yet, I’m working hard to stay present + keep my focus on living slowly, soaking up the moments as they pass by. Of course, one of the ways that IRead More

I ushered in July with Miss Voon : Uppsala’s sassy + sexy rooftop bar

6 Jul 2017 gatherings, sweden

I’m not really a drinks girl. I like my craft beer + my wine. But, Miss Voon. She enticed + intrigued me. She’s new and has already earned a reputation for her killer drinks and her breathtaking view of Uppsala. And, as I walked by during sunset on the last night of June, I longingly looked up at her and thought to myself, “I have got to go check that place out soon.” Little did I know that, in aboutRead More
