We leave for Scotland tomorrow, and it’s finally starting to set in that I’ll no longer be living in Sweden. No more midsummer, afternoon fika, or dalahästar. No daily kanelbullar, summerhouses, or ABBA – there are so many things I’ll miss, but I’m certain many of the Swedish things I’ve come to love will find […]

MY SOCIAL DILEMMA

Let’s talk about social media – a topic that’s been on my mind quite a bit over the past few weeks and something that I definitely have a love/hate relationship with.

HOW TO MAKE FRIENDS IN A NEW CITY

27 THINGS I’VE LEARNED IN 27 YEARS

On Saturday I celebrated my 27th birthday. It’s so crazy to me that I’ve entered my late twenties – how did this even happen? Though I don’t feel much older, I do feel a bit wiser (but don’t get me wrong – I’m still very much figuring it out), and reflecting on this year has […]
