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! ✺

70th perfection

2 Oct 2014 gatherings

there is a thing that i discovered when i lived in sweden that is quite common – and fun. and it seemed like the perfect time to include it in my/our american life. you see, sometimes, when friends or family members have a birthday, they choose to celebrate together. they add their ages together and then say that they are having a 50 years party (two 25 year olds), for example. well, lina and i have celebrated some pretty bigRead More

the rapture of being alive

undoubtedly this was the perfect day. the perfect way to usher in a new decade, a new year, and a new season of my life. it was simple. authentic. peaceful. it filled with nature + food/drink. but, most importantly, i had my amazing family around me. my love even skipped class to be with me the whole day – and that’s a big, huge deal. from the sunrise breakfast in bed to the late night sipping on bubbles, and everything in-between,Read More

40 years to bliss: 24 september 2014

24 Sep 2014 life, spirit + soul

it’s time to celebrate a new milestone! today i turn 40! but, first, let’s flashback 20 years to when i was 20. i was in college/university studying to be a teacher. i had to take a basic art class to fulfill my requirements. i’d put it off for as long as possible. anyways, i was in class on the first day (me, a senior, with a classful of freshman) and we got an assignment to prioritize what is most importantRead More

welcome back, dear autumn.

tonight is special. it is the autumn equinox. or in other words, fall begins tonight in the northern hemisphere. and i just love fall. but, before i get all wrapped up in the coziness and beauty of autumn, i want to pause today to let the equinox energy do its thing. what i’m talking about is the fact that with the autumn equinox, nature is in balance. from the beginning of summer until today, the days have been longer thanRead More
