    Evolution of a traveler

    Sven and I are planning our next vacation. I know we just came back from two weeks in Indiana and Sweden, but this time, we’re planning a more…relaxing…vacation in a slightly more exotic locale. As I researched possible destinations, hotels, and activities, I realized how much our priorities have changed since we first met, staying […]

    The summer is over

    It’s the first Tuesday in September, which means that Labor Day has passed, and the summer is unofficially over. Everyone always says that the summer goes by way too fast, but this year that seems to be exceptionally true. With that said, some of my friends and family readers have pointed out my lack of posts about what Sven and I have been up to this summer. I thought that Facebook and Instagram took care of that, but I guess I’m not the only one whose apps decide to show me more updates from the guy I met during jury duty than from my own family.

Usually we like to travel off the beaten path (Mauritius, Tunisia), but this time all we wanted was a quick getaway with some sand and sun. Three hour direct flight, fifteen minute drive from the airport –> sun loungers, warm […]

    Cheap Date Idea!

    After eight birthdays, Christmases, and anniversaries of creative and thoughtful gift-giving, I found it difficult to find some fresh inspiration for Sven’s birthday gift this year. It doesn’t help that his birthday is in the middle of November, which kills the prospect of almost all outdoor activities that don’t involve travelling to another climate. In […]

    Best Monday morning ever!

    No, not yesterday, unfortunately…I had to get up at 5:30am and make it to a 6:30am meeting… But the best Monday morning ever was the day after the day after our wedding! Sven and I  did our “trash the dress” photo shoot with our photographer, Alicia Swedenborg, who is just a bundle of fun! It […]

    Mini-moon in Santorini!

    One of the luxuries of getting married in Stockholm is that the Greek Isles are a short, cheap charter flight away. Perfect for a little mini-getaway to get some post-wedding relaxation in before heading back home. Right, that’s called a honeymoon. Well, we had hoped to have more time off for a “full-length” honeymoon, but […]
