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 […]

I hope you’ll forgive me for the random-ness of this post, but it’s just something I was thinking about the other day that I wanted to share. Last summer, Conrad and I spent two weeks in Europe to celebrate our marriage with the French side of my family. In case you didn’t know, my dad is French! He hails from Haute Maurienne, the part of France that borders Italy and Switzerland, and the home of […]

2017 / inspiration / thoughts / vision board

Well hello! When the new year started, I was full of motivation for 2017. I immediately took to the Internet in search of different ways to set intentions and goals for the new year, and, obviously, found a crap-ton (technical term) of stuff.  Knowing that not every approach would work for me, I looked for something that I’d never done before but that made sense for me. I’m very visual and learn best by re-writing […]

Are you all sick of those ‘New Year, New Life” posts (that are so popular every January) yet?  Well, let’s hope not, because here’s one more! Let’s be honest: on the whole, 2016 sucked. Personally, it was not that bad a year, but globally, 2016 can truly Kiss. My. Ass.  (Pardon my French.) I still don’t know what I’m doing with this blog, with my life, with my career, or with anything really*, but I’m […]

A few weeks ago, I came across this post on one of my favorite blogs, A Cup of Jo, and I bookmarked it immediately. In it, blogger Joanna Goddard describes her current bedtime routine with her two sons.  {image via} She’ll climb into the middle of their shared bed to tell her boys stories, sing songs, and lull them to sleep. During this time, she noticed that her sons love to each grab one of […]

Hello! I’m still in San Francisco, at the An Event Apart conference. Our weekend was great, and I have a gazillion photos to share with you, but I wanted to check in and say hello before bombarding you with a packed weekend recap post. Also I am having a lot of thoughts and I want to write them down.The conference I am attending is one I found sort of by accident when my boss asked […]

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 […]
