Hi guys, Happy Friday! Despite my fervent praying to the weather gods, today was NOT declared a snow-day, but even that can’t dampen my Friday euphoria. I’m not sure what this weekend will hold, as we are due even more snow on Saturday and Sunday, but I know that it will include some combination of wine, Season 3 of House of Cards (WHO’S EXCITED????), and half-assed baking (frozen cookie dough, whoop whoop). What else is […]

Hi guys, I just wanted to say thanks for letting me share something so personal about myself yesterday. The kind comments I received touched me so deeply, and mean so much to me. I know that I have not been the best at updating this year and I could probably list off about 3,263 reasons why that is, but I do love this blog and I am so grateful for the readers, friends, and family […]

I am not sure how many people are aware, but this week is National Eating Disorders awareness week. It creeps up on me every February, and I usually try to ignore it, but this year it is especially important to me because this year, I can finally say I am recovered from my eating disorder.  You might be thinking, “Huh? What eating disorder?”. Without going into too much detail, I suffered in secret from an […]

Happy Friday, guys! Let me just say right now: T.G.I.F.  For some reason, I’ve been in a funk this whole week, and I have never been happier to see the weekend just around the corner. You know those days where nothing is really ‘wrong’ but you can’t pull yourself out of a bad mood? Yeah, that’s been me all week (poor Conrad). I don’t know if it’s the fact that the sun is shining, or […]

NEWS FLASH: Moving sucks. Packing, unpacking, cleaning, losing things, the actual move, etc., it all sucks. Having moved homes more than 15+ times in my life, you’d think I’d have some sort of tools or strategies to fall back on to make moving less painful, but nope. No such luck. I’m still a terrible packer and major procrastinator, and every move I go through is a hellish, seemingly-neverending ordeal. There is, however, one thing I […]

As I’ve mentioned, most of our trip was spent away from the computer/camera lense, but I did manage to take a few snaps of our surroundings. I always seem to forget how beautiful Sweden is, even in the dead of winter. I’m so lucky to be able to get a yearly reminder! Scroll down to experience some of our trip… Happy humpday! xxLena

I know, I know…I disappeared again. But I have a good reason for it! My mom spent the last two weeks with us and we were so busy wedding planning, shopping, and enjoying each other’s company before she returned to Uganda that blogging was not priority no. 1, and for that, I apologize. I do have something fun for today, though! I’m not sure if I mentioned this but, before we left for Sweden, my […]
