Day 19: Merry Swedish Christmas Eve

24 Dec 2017 gatherings

In Sweden, we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve. It’s an entire day filled with food, music, family, and traditions. And, this year, is a “Sweden year” for me + Lina; so we’ve taken the train down to Norrköping to spend the weekend with Lina’s parents, siblings, nieces/nephews, cousins, and more. It’s a full house, with lots of classic Swedish celebrations, all day long. And I thought I’d share just a little of it with you all. But, first, what’s aRead More

The only holiday playlist that you’ll ever need

1 Dec 2017 mixtapes

December is here. And I am pumped. Finally it’s time to bring out the Christmas music + just let it loop and shuffle and play from now until the New Year. Yep. I am that person. I think it has something to with the fact that I live in another country from where I grew up. It’s a nostalgia thing. Listening to the old classics, new favorites, pop shit, folksy stuff, classical, instrumental, soul, and everything else in between justRead More

the week that was the last week of 2016 // 52

Drove to Connecticut to my aunt’s on the second day of 2017, and then drove to NYC and flew home to Sweden over the 3rd + 4th. So, I’ve covered some miles for sure. But, I don’t feel worn down. Sure, it’s only 9 pm and I am snuggled in my ownRead More

As soon as I drove into my brother’s neighborhood Friday night, I had the feeling that I was gonna be celebrating “Christmas in Maine”… like a small town, coastal Maine Christmas movie. It just felt magical and cozy and wintery. There was ice/snow on the ground, it was bitterly cold. But, it was toasty warm in the house. And there was pizza waiting for us! And beer! Oh, glorious Asheville craft beer! My parents had stocked up on multiple casesRead More

26 Dec 2016 NYC, the sacred everyday

Happy Holidays!! I’m writing to you from my brother’s cozy little home on the coast of Maine, just outside of Portland. The sun is shining and it is frigid out. As soon as I finish this post, I’m gonna wrap up + take Gunni, the dog, out for a walk on the beach. Yep. My brother literally lives on the coast of Maine. It’s a sandy little beach, tucked into a cove, with wide the Atlantic Ocean in view. IRead More
