Travel, crafting, restaurants, everyday life...my blog is about experiencing life in Sweden as a mom, as an artist, as a person who is new to the Swedish culture. Everyday is an adventure and an opportunity to learn something new about others (and about yourself). Sometimes laughing (so I don't cry) I share the joys of what makes living the expat life so incomparable with any other way of living.
About me: I'm an artist and writer, living abroad with my US Diplomat husband and 4 kids. We've lived in Greece, Austria, The Netherlands, San Francisco, LA and now Stockholm, Sweden. I love experiencing new cultures, places and people. Sharing my perspective with others helps me see the world isn't such a big place after all. There's so much we have in common, but what makes us different is also what makes us endearing. As I travel the globe, my viewpoint expands, my recipe folder grows and my heart enlarges. I don't know who I'd be without all the people I've met along the way, teaching me about life and broadening my views. It's not easy packing up a family household every couple of years, but it's worth it when you consider that what we've gained is so much greater than anything we've lost.
