It’s March! Why did January seem to last for a year while Feb and March are flying by?  Time is so strange. Maybe time is flying by because we’ve been doing a lot after a relatively quiet start to the year. First off, we moved! Our new place is on the outskirts of Uppsala, and we are in the forest/countryside but still only a twenty minute drive to Uppsala and my office. It is SO […]

Go, go, go

Don’t let this serene winter landscape fool you – things have been hectic and crazy AS PER USUAL*. So, what is new? Glad you asked: 1. My 1-year work contract has miraculously been extended to a permanent position, so THAT’S HAPPENING. 2. We’re moving! Again! To Uppsala, but for real this time. GOODBYE gruelling 1.5 hours commute from southern Stockholm and HELLO adorable little Swedish farmhouse (with a forest for Winnie to roam freely) that […]

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 […]

A quick hello….

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 […]

Arriving in Sweden

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, […]
