Santa Cruzing

It’s Friday, friends, want to do the happy dance with me? Any fun plans for you? So happy it’s the weekend, even though we’ll spend most of it cleaning up around the house before my in-laws arrive from Denmark on Sunday. Whatever, I don’t really mind because I am still on a high from our [...]

Our lovely winter vacation in Lake Tahoe

winter fun

Last weekend was a weekend of firsts. First time in Tahoe for me. First time we touched some snow since we left New York last summer. First time on skis for the girls. And we loved every single second of it. Some friends had rented a cabin in Squaw Valley for the long holiday weekend [...]

New York New York

new york city

This is the last picture of that I instagramed of New York before our move, and I thought it was only appropriate to share it again since I’m flying back to New York. I am taking the girls with me and we’re going to spend the rest of the week there. I have to attend [...]

Soulful + Honest

I just spent a weekend like I hadn’t spent in a long time – simple and magical all at once. We went camping with the girls for the very first time with an old friend that I met in Ireland. After months of packing and moving and trying to adapt to a new schedule, these [...]

A Danish summer

Happy Friday, friends! Just realized that I never shared pictures from our week in Denmark visiting hubby’s side of the family, so there you go! It’s been harder and harder to go back – I mean, hubby and I used to complain about the price of airline tickets when it was just the both of [...]

Paris is always a good idea

Montmatre in Paris

While I am getting back in the swing of things -thanks to all the people who sent me kind notes about the move!-, I wanted to share a few pics from the little trip to Paris I took a few weeks back….because, let’s face it,pictures of Paris are much more f un than pictures of [...]

My favorite places – Downtown Manhattan

Before we move to the Bay area on Monday, I have to share some of my favorite places from where I live in NYC – Downtown Manhattan. Somehow I already miss it a bit, this neighborhood that I called home for  3 years When people visit New York City, they usually don’t spend much time [...]

Le temps des cerises

cherries and red swedish hasbeens

We only have one week left in Europe before our move to San Francisco, can you believe it?! It’s been so nice to be here at my parents, doing nothing but enjoying the little things that life in the countryside has too offer. A real break from life in the city. Last week we went [...]

France – and life, simplified

I always knew that our life in Manhattan with the girls was a bit complicated, but being at my parents in the French countryside for the summer vacation, I am getting to see the extent of that. We traded the subway for a bike. We traded the top notch children’s museum for my parent’s backyard, [...]

{this weekend} let’s book a ticket & go anywhere!

just go

Illustration made using Anthropologie image. I don’t know about you, but I want oh-so-badly to take a little break from the winter months, drop every priority and just book a last minute trip to the first sunny deal that I find. Escape and go explore a random place. And when I am there, drop my [...]
