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! ✺

all that i need.

it’s really busy this week. guess i’m gonna go full speed ahead from now until my summer vacation begins (in 6 weeks!!!!) but, its all good! i was talking with lina yesterday about the crazy irony that for 7 months we had no resources ($) and plenty of time; and now, we have some money & no time. seriously, isn’t there a balance somewhere?! though i wouldn’t change a thing about our cozy, stay at home winter. and i’m sureRead More
