Well, hello! It’s me! God, I am a terrible blogger. As soon as life gets in the way, ZAP! The blog just goes right to the bottom of the to-do list. Eh, oh well. I always come back, don’t I?? Anyway, as you probably put gathered from the lack of activity here, life has been INSANE. I know I always say that, but this time I really, really mean it. Between work, travel, a husband in […]

Hellooooo! Contrary to what the lack of posting on this blog might suggest, I am alive and kicking. Here is a photo of Winston to distract you of the fact that I am the WORST blogger ever: Isn’t he just the CUTEST? The answer is yes, yes he is. Anyway, I apologize for disappearing yet again. Moving is so stressful, and while some things have calmed down a bit, there is still so much up […]

After I announced our move, I had a lot of questions about moving to a new country, so I thought that it would be fun to put together a few tips and pointers […]

Hej hej! As you’ve probably noticed, I’m in Sweden! I arrived last week and have been fighting both a nasty cold and horrendous jetlag, so I have not had much of a chance to blog. The trip over, for those of you wondering, was fine. I was really anxious about flying with Winston, but other than a minor issue at customs in Stockholm (they couldn’t locate Winnie’s microchip, despite using about 4 different chip readers! […]

Last year, when Conrad and I celebrated our marriage with my French family, we followed the celebration with a week to wind down in Sweden. During that week, we took a day trip from Stockholm to Uppsala, where some great friends of ours live. Before making our way to their incredible farmhouse just outside the city, we spent a few hours exploring Uppsala. The town is one of few medieval cities still left in Sweden, […]
