An autumn weekend in Östersund, Sweden // part one

7 Oct 2018 sweden

Two weeks ago, I was in the small city of Östersund, Sweden with my lovely wife. It was my 44th birthday weekend and she had planned a whole 3-day trip to this little northern, nature-loving town for us. It turned out to be a most perfect weekend. Slow, spontaneous, and relaxing. And the the fact that we were celebrating the autumn equinox, a full moon, and my birthday all while we were there made the trip one that I willRead More

My love letter to sweet, soft Autumn

19 Sep 2018 sweden, wilderness

Dear soft autumn, You are just around the corner. I can feel you in the air. And in my bones. My soul is settling in. My breath is slowing + deepening. And, as each day passes, I ready myself for the slow, sweet descent into your darkness. Even if I cannot fully see your golden, red, orange, and brown in all its glory, I see hints. I notice subtle changes on the tips and edges of nature. I rise nowRead More

Vacation is over + it’s time for a whole new work vibe

20 Aug 2018 life, sweden

I’m totally ok not having a car: Reflections on a spontaneous road trip

4 Nov 2017 sweden

Lina + I don’t have a car. And most days that’s totally ok. Some days, however, I long for the convenience and freedom that I feel when I live in the US. But, all in all, I’m perfectly happy walking + taking public transportation everywhere. Actually, I really really love it. I mean, it’s good for me + good for the world. So, it’s totally win-win. Buuuuut. After growing up and driving around for about 35 years non-stop, there areRead 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
