What’s Good This Week

Hey there! Happy Mother’s Day to those of you who are celebrating today, and sending love and light to those for whom this is a difficult day. My kids are too little to really get it, but Niko did come home from the playground with a bouquet of flowers and a very carefully rehearsed, “happy…

This is 40

I turned 40 a few days ago. People keep asking me how if it feels, and honestly? Weird. But also not. When I last renewed my Canadian passport I had the option of choosing between one that was valid for 5 or 10 years. I opted for the 5-year passport because 10 years seemed So….

What’s Good This Week

This is me with my best Stockhomies. I’m the very pregnant lady on the far left, in case there were any questions. When you live far away from your family, your friends become like your family, and this foursome here is my tightest, closest crew. We’ve been through so much together. Three weddings, four babies,…

are you hungry? thoughts on physical vs emotional hunger

Most days around three o’clock or so in the afternoon, I find myself standing in front of the office snack drawer and asking myself this question: am I hungry? I’ll admit it’s taken a fair amount of mindfulness to get to the point of asking this question in the first place. When I first started…

Stockholm

On Friday afternoon I was at work, in a meeting room with colleagues, a client, and a presenter from an external research agency, when our CEO came flying through the door and said something about an attack. My Swedish is pretty good, but our CEO talks really fast and these were words I had not…

This little man came storming into our lives almost two weeks ago, in the wee hours of March 1st, 2016. He avoided being a leap day baby by a matter of hours, but when he decided he was ready to come he charged out at break-neck speed, clearly taking after his father and attempting to…

what’s good around the web + weekly meal plan

This week’s meal plan is brought to you by the letter M for Meltdown, which is what I had this weekend. I finished a first draft of my thesis (a whole five days ahead of schedule! who am I?!) in between a lot of tears and irrational yelling, and fuelled by a lethal combination of…

what’s good around the web!

Hello from Barcelona! Paul and I have nipped over for the weekend for some warmer weather, tapas, cava, and a little 21km run (him, not me) fuelled largely by Spanish olives. This is a pre-race shot of all the runners making their way towards the start line. What’s good around the web is a weekly…

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! Or Happy Friday! Whatever you’re into. As I mentioned previously, Paul and I aren’t in the habit of doing anything special on the 14th of February. This year we happen to be zipping off to Barcelona on the day of love, but it’s for a race, not for romance. I mean,…

What’s good around the web is a weekly series where I share some of what I’ve been reading around the web. Each week I post links to five nutrition related…

what’s good around the web!

Although we’re now losing light rapidly, I do love it at this time of year. In the early evening sunlight funnels down our street and is equal parts blinding and beautiful. What’s good around the web is a weekly series where I share some of what I’ve been reading around the web. Each week I’ll…

hello!

Hi Friends! Me here, coming up for air. Here’s what has happened since we last spoke: It’s light almost constantly in Stockholm right now. That photo was taken over a month ago, around 10pm. Now we get a few hours of dimness between 11pm and 2am, but the sun never really sets. I love this time…
