// week thirty // nick’s in town + vacation has begun!

i don’t have any time, friends! we’re hopping a train to stockholm in less than an hour and i’ve gotta get dressed. but, i definitely wanted to share some photos from last week with you all.

my love and i went down to norrköping on tuesday. she worked from home and i kept in contact with my brother as he made his way to europe. then, on wednesday, he arrived in norrköping!

basically, my heart feels like it’s going to explode constantly. we’ve been touring, eating, drinking, chatting, and meeting up with friends. and there’s more to come, as he will be with us until friday!

// week twenty nine // there’s nothing like a good work/play balance in life

happy monday, friends! i’m a nervous wreck today because i am texting back + forth with my brother giving him last minute tips before he boards his plane to come to europe!!

he will be taking off in about 6 hours from now to begin his journey, and since he is embarking on something completely new + solo traveling, i am on pins and needles with anticipation. he’ll be fine, but i just want all of the traveling to be over and for him to land in denmark tomorrow at this time!

in the meantime, as i play the concerned big sister role, i will also try to do some blogging + writing + organizing.

last week was a really great week for me. i got a lot of writing done. i felt super creative. and i began seriously working on some major plans for my future this fall. i’ve got some goals and some things that i’m not quite ready to talk about yet, but i have a made a big adjustment in taking some control over some things in my life – in dedicating + surrendering myself to a whole new step, a much deeper + higher way of living. and it feels oh so right. though it’s not all set in stone yet. there is much work to be done.

anyway, last week. there was lots of work. and there was lots of rest + play during the weekend. friday we ate dinner out at our fave little pub in town, with a friend who come up from stockholm for a quick visit + our neighbor/friend who we hadn’t seen in about 2 weeks.  both weekend days my love + i stayed home and in our pjs for the majority of the day. we enjoyed long breakfasts, time on the sofa, and dreamed about our future.

but, as evening came, we pulled ourselves together and headed out. saturday, we took a long, slow walk at sunset through the city and to the castle that stands high on the hill overlooking downtown + where we live. sunday evening we met a friend for fika, then a few beers by the river with some family/friend time.

so, here you go. the photos from my super grounded, busy + motivated week, balanced with my fairy tale, dreaming + relaxing week.

week twenty seven // music + laughter + lots of summer sun

hello everyone! it’s a new week again, and this week i am away on vacation with my wife + our extended swedish family + friends.

we’ve gone off the grid and gotten wild. it’s that time of year when we head out to the archipelago in southern sweden (southish of västervik, fellow swedes). all we do is relax, enjoy each other, eat, have fika, sleep, rest, laugh, sunbathe. pretty much soak up the magical swedish nature and each other.

so, since i’m doing that right now and not actually writing this blog post when you read it, i’m just gonna get right to the photos from a super summery, beautiful last week. enjoy!
