But…why Sweden?

If I were to label my relationship with Sweden on Facebook it would most definitely be, ‘It’s Complicated‘! As we now know, my background story is all over the place. I actually pity my closest friends, because they have undoubtedly heard me explain my story hundreds of times to any poor, innocent fool who’s asked that loaded (for me, anyway) question: Where are you from?  These are the friends that can practically recite my little […]

It’s that time of year, folks! In keeping with last year’s tradition, I’m setting several goals (rather than making resolutions) for this next year. I personally find broad goals a lot easier to work towards in contrast to strict resolutions – that’s always been a big struggle for me –  so without further ado, here are my personal goals for 2016! {image via} 1.

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 […]

national eating disorders awareness / neda / personal / recovery

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 […]

So… I realize that I getting my ‘new year’s resolutions’ up on Jan 22nd sort of makes me an immediate failure in the resolutions department, but I’ve decided not to do actual resolutions this year. Instead, I’m aiming for goals. I also figure that since I usually start my resolutions at full force on Jan 1, only to be completely exhausted and fed up by Feb 4, I’m not being strict about implementation. A lot […]

Hello! Happy Monday 🙂 How are you guys? I’m feeling happy and snuggly (that’s a thing, right?) after an amazing birthday yesterday, which I may try to recap later this week. For now, however, I want to roll out my 2014 DIY Gift Guide! I love making and receiving home-made gifts, and always struggle with ideas for what my friends and family would actually LIKE and USE (no one wants a sock monkey. No one.). […]
