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! ✺

Being present. Day 9: The way to God is down

11 Dec 2017 spirit + soul

I’m home alone. The cat is snuggled beside me. I’m wrapped up in a blanket. A couple of candles are lit. Christmas music is playing. And snow is falling down outside my window. I need this moment. Not because something is wrong with me. But, because I counselled so many teenagers today. Facing things way deeper than boy problems or school stress. My office door was revolving all day long for pressing, heartbreaking, painful issues. And almost everyone that satRead More

Being present. Day 8: Still, still, still

10 Dec 2017 spirit + soul

Good evening, dear souls. And happy 2nd Sunday in Advent as well. Y’all, I’ve had a really, really slow weekend. Like Lina + I didn’t go anywhere. We literally nested all weekend long. In fact, so far that’s how my weekends in December seem to be shaping up. But, they make for a very good balance to the long, crazy workdays from Monday-Thursday. And, to be honest, I think that my soul actually craves being still right now. While youRead More

Being present. Day 7: Dreamy dark winter mornings

9 Dec 2017 spirit + soul

It’s no secret that I love dark winter mornings. And, around here, since it is dark forever it seems, it’s easy to enjoy the mornings. Especially weekend mornings. Even if I wake late (And by late I mean 7am. It’s sick, I know), I can still be certain of a dreamy morning filled with candles + coffee. This morning, I felt the desire to sit in the kitchen, so I wrapped my robe around me, snuggled with the cat, thenRead More

Being present. Day 6: Using your body to get grounded

8 Dec 2017 spirit + soul

After my little wipe-out knee injury yesterday, I have been pretty much out of commission. I can walk + bend my knee now, but I’m keeping it up + iced for the most part. And honestly, if feels as if I’ve been in a car crash, as I have body aches all freaking over. Really, though, it’s been a great reminder (excuse) to think a lot about how I treat myself + how I care for myself. And, while IRead More

Being present. Day 5: Diary of a slow life

7 Dec 2017 spirit + soul

Thursdays mean the last day of the (outer) work week for me. It’s the last day of the week that I go to the school where I work as a mentor/coach for high school students. And at the end of the day, I downshift into an even slower life than my Monday-Thursday slow life. That doesn’t mean that I am inactive during my long weekends, it just means that my work shifts from my public, extroverted work world, to myRead More
