Being present. Day 10: How to keep that grounded feeling all day long

12 Dec 2017 the sacred everyday

I’m a morning person. Not only do I have boundless energy + tons on creativity in the morning, I also cherish my early mornings. Those moments that I spend by myself, setting the tone for the day, are just magical + grounding. One of the things that I used to notice, though, was that while the mornings always seemed so inspiring, I somehow lost that sense of being grounded as the day wore on. And it wasn’t until the nextRead More

I’m totally ok not having a car: Reflections on a spontaneous road trip

4 Nov 2017 sweden

Lina + I don’t have a car. And most days that’s totally ok. Some days, however, I long for the convenience and freedom that I feel when I live in the US. But, all in all, I’m perfectly happy walking + taking public transportation everywhere. Actually, I really really love it. I mean, it’s good for me + good for the world. So, it’s totally win-win. Buuuuut. After growing up and driving around for about 35 years non-stop, there areRead More

Why we love hosting friends for the weekend

15 Sep 2017 gatherings

I’m so lucky to have the friends I have. And I’m talking to all of you out there, near and far. And I’m even luckier + happier when they come to visit for the weekend. Especially when it’s friends who live in other countries that I don’t get to see that often. That’s the freaking best. (Hint hint to all of you who haven’t made it to Sweden yet. Hehe.). And I guess you could say that my home hasRead More

I ushered in July with Miss Voon : Uppsala’s sassy + sexy rooftop bar

6 Jul 2017 gatherings, sweden

I’m not really a drinks girl. I like my craft beer + my wine. But, Miss Voon. She enticed + intrigued me. She’s new and has already earned a reputation for her killer drinks and her breathtaking view of Uppsala. And, as I walked by during sunset on the last night of June, I longingly looked up at her and thought to myself, “I have got to go check that place out soon.” Little did I know that, in aboutRead More

How I did Spring break this year: Family, food, drink, and culture

19 Apr 2017 gatherings

Kind of spontaneously, my brother decided to spend Spring Break in Sweden! Nick lives in Maine and has been working at a university in New Hampshire. So, when he decided that he’d take some time off (since he worked through the Christmas holidays when we were there), he thought he’s come for a visit. And that made me + Lina more happy than I could ever express.   Now, spring break in Sweden ain’t all that great to be honest.Read More
