An open letter to the world from an American in Sweden: We won’t back down… from love

8 Oct 2017 culture + art

When America is at its best, our bond + our spirit… it’s unbreakable. – Jason Aldean It’s hard to be an American in Sweden in times of tragedy. Honestly, it’s just freaking been hard to be an American in Sweden since last year’s election. I can’t be there to fight for what’s right… as beliefs, laws, and ideals of regular Americans are being stripped away and threatened by injustice.

There are truly no words.  I’ve got tons of stories to tell about this week, but we don’t have Internet in ourRead More

celebrating 2015 // photos of some of my most memorable moments

the photo above was taken on new year’s eve in 2009. just 5 days after lina and i had gotten married. we were in uppsala celebrating, visiting lina’s brother, his girlfriend (now wife), and the rest of the “gang”. we haven’t been in uppsala for new year’s since then, so i thought it’d be a great little throwback to share the photo, as we will be celebrating with the same people (and in uppsala, of course) tonight. how fun is that?!Read More
