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 […]

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 […]

I always like these ‘lately’ posts because they really force me to slow down and appreciate the little moments. A delicious dessert. An extra warm cuddle from Winston. The magical way the light hits the trail behind our house. Things have been crazy as usual, so it’s been extra nice to take note of these small happenings and remember that, no matter what else is going on in the world, things are and always will […]

Hello! TGIF! I hope you’ve all had relatively smooth and successful weeks. I didn’t feel well this Monday, so mine didn’t start off great, but I’m thankfully feeling much better now. This weekend’s weather is supposed to be decent (60F, cloudy), so we’re planning on starting the mountain of work that is organizing our garage. I’m still in the naive frame of mind that this task is going to be ‘fun’, but I prefer that […]
