as of late

In an effort to share a bit more about what’s going on with me and the Swede, I’ve decided to start a new feature on this here blog. I’m kind of obsessed with Instagram and am convinced that it is impossible to take a bad picture with it, so I figure it’s a great way to share a bit of my everyday with all of y’all!

From left to right, row by row: A rainbow captured on my way home from Central Station / It’s äpplekaka (apple cake) season in Skåne and I plan on eating A LOT / Some new pillows I sewed for the couch / An early morning in downtown Malmö / The cutest pug puppy ever. / It’s not fall without a pumpkin

some pretty for your monday

Food photographer and blogger Katie Quinn Davies recently made a trip to The White House, a bed and breakfast in Daylesford, Victoria, Australia. She snapped some photos while there and I stumbled across them today. This place looks amazing. It’s definitely added to my “hopefully one day…” list. These are just a few of my favorites, but you can see all of them here.

Alive and well

Wow. Where did those three weeks go? As most of you know, I got a job (yays!). While I’m beyond excited about the opportunity, it has definitely been an adjustment for me going from an, ahem, lady of leisure to a working woman. I don’t have the time that I once had – especially when you consider the three hours I spend commuting each day. Then when I get home I’m hitting the gym, playing with my dog, trying to be a good spouse or (most often the case) just plain worn out.

So, things have been so busy lately and, unfortunately, the blog is what’s fallen to the back burner. It’s not that I no longer enjoy doing it – I actually really miss it – it’s just that it takes a lot more time than you’d think to create thoughtful posts day in and day out! And I’d rather post nothing at all than something blah just for the sake of having a post.

I don’t typically get too personal on this blog, but because I think some of you might really care, I thought the radio silence was worth addressing. I want to keep blogging and sharing things that strike my fancy, but I’d also (if it’s ok with y’all, of course) like to get a bit more personal and share things from my everyday life. And before I go and change everything, I’d really like to know what y’all think. Any certain categories of posts that you’d hate to see disappear forever? Anything you don’t care if you never see again? Anything you want me to talk about more? Please, do tell.

In the meantime, I promise I’ll be better about posting more often.
