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! ✺

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

May 2018: Basking in the glow of early summer moments

May burst on the scene with light + warmth + a feeling of pure bliss. And a sudden vibe of nothing but life-giving, sunshine-y goodness. As if right on cue, or, actually a month and a half early, summertime arrived and I knew exactly what I needed to do. With my newfound, deeper understanding of living in the present moment thanks to a very tough + inwardly-focused April, I said to myself in the beginning of May that I wantedRead More

April 2018: When your intentions are not at all aligned with what you need

By the second or third day of April, I knew that I was in for an unexpected, unplanned time that had nothing to do with the intentions I had for the month. I had entered April feeling connected, aligned, and grounded. And, looking back, I think I was. But, to be honest, I had some expectations about April – and it did not turn out at all like I had perhaps envisioned. Everything around me, including me, was put onRead More

Why we should practice being lost

3 Jun 2018 spirit + soul

Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here, And you must treat it as a powerful stranger, Must ask permission to know it and be known. . . . —David Wagoner [1]     I found myself lost. I didn’t get lost. I didn’t even think I was really going anywhere – at least I hadn’t planned anything new. I had been traveling on the same path, with the sameRead More

April Wisdom: Saying yes to love is the bravest thing I have ever done

4 Apr 2018 culture + art

It’s time for a guest post, you guys. I haven’t had one in a while and it is high time I share the voices of some pretty bad ass, inspiring women who I consider elders – whether they are older than me or not. My theme for April is all about elder wisdom; and the women that I am going to share with you throughout the month have all tapped into their elder spirit and offer us so much wisdomRead More
