Grandma 85!

This Saturday I got to spend with my family on dad's side, including my beautiful grandma who's turning 85 later this summer. She's the coolest grandma with a lot of humor and things to tell me about life. During my lifetime she's been traveling to many countries, exploring some of them with grandpa and others - like Oman - twice on her own! I can't get more impressed. When I grow up I want to be like her and still be kick-ass.

Yesterday I had some friends over and it was really nice. The vegan buffet was a real hit and I got to spend some time with almost all of the people I love to have around me. My great colleague Johanna happened to have a bottle of prosecco named Victoria at home so she brought it over, have to look for it next time while at Systembolaget (the liquor store in Sweden.) And to say something short about the sushi picture: Oh my God. It's my favorite lunch close to work: vegetarian sushi with cucumber, tofu, rice and a lot of avocado. And ginger of course. I've also started on a new book called The little Paris bookshop by Nina George. I feel like it's going to be a real nice feel-good now in the summer.

I'm going to Spain this week. I finally get to hop on a plane again and fly away. It's not that I don't like it here - I'll miss my friends a lot even though it's just three weeks. It's just that I love being on the move and find new spots in the world where I haven't been yet. And even though I'm going to an area where I've been many many times I feel like this time will be different. I'm a different person than who I was before graduating two years ago and I don't feel like laying on the beach all day everyday. I want to drive to nice cities near-by, I want to go surfing (apparently there's a surf break not too far from the house...) and I want to find all of the nice vegetarian restaurants I've never been to before. I also want to go the nice restaurants, beaches and pools where I've been many times before - but it's nice to have a balance, right?

Today I've been fighting with some thoughts that always hunts me while on vacation or traveling in general. I've been working a lot with body positivity the last year - working on accepting myself in every form. One of my most read posts when I started this blog was about loving our bodies just the way they are and always do what feels best and stop squeezing into to small jeans, holding in the stomach because "it's supposed to be thin" or care about those cellulites on the thighs. Here's the deal though: I'm very comfortable in any clothes (except the really tight dresses who show every curve on the body - still working on that one) and walking around in underwear (which I actually do a lot and don't really care who's seeing.) It's when I get to those warmer days when I'm wearing a bikini or short shorts I get uncomfortable. Which is weird since underwear is fine. As soon as that bikini gets out my confidence and acceptance goes away with it. It's such a stupid thing really, to judge yourself for not looking like the girls in the magazine. But everywhere I look, in ads and pictures on social media, I see that thin girl who looks like she's never had a bloaty day in her whole life. Or ever tasted pizza. Poor girl.

Anyway. With vacation comes anxiety because of this. I'm going to do my best to not think about how my body's "looking" while walking on the beach or laying down reading but it's hard. We all have good days and bad days. And for me I get crazy thoughts like "If I don't eat anything bad this whole summer I'll feel much better because I'll be thin." One summer, like 2012, I swear - I had only salad to eat for weeks. Just because I wanted to be "thin". Then I started working out for 4-5 times week for 2 hours, only running and lifting at the gym. Now when I see pictures from that year I feel sad - on every picture I look tired, thin, sad and had big dark circles under my eyes. I didn't look or feel healthy. But the last year I've felt healthy, felt like I look happier both to myself and others (and on pictures - what a difference!) I'm just more alive this way, not being the advertised "thin" woman. Because in the end we can only be who were born to be, right? Sure we can change, but what's the point if it makes us feel bad?

So to come to a conclusion: this summer I'll do my best to always walk, dance, smile, surf, swim e.t.c. with a smile and a "nothing can get me down"-kind of feeling. Because If I feel awesome, I'll probably be awesome aswell.

Love and light,

Books, Everyday life, Sweden

I'm back to life! No painkillers and I can finally chew for real again. It's easy to take some food for granted when you can have anything you want, but when you can only have things you can drink with a straw or barely eat with a spoon for a couple of days you get hungry for everything. This made me eat anything and everything one more time when my jaw got back to normal. Something I've really fallen for (which is not very chewy though) is aubergine! Where have you been all my life? Emelia cooked me some dinner this Tuesday and I can't get over it. I'll grill it a lot this summer... Imagine some skewers with aubergine, onion, peppers, zucchini, mushrooms or oumph... OK I have to move on otherwise this will end up with me cooking instead of writing.

The sun is out in Sweden again. It's like a regular Swedish summer, rain for one day - 25 degrees and sun the next one (or just two hours later.) I like it though. The unexpected is exciting (and sometimes a bit chilly but hey bring an extra sweater!) Anyway. The last couple of days the nights has been really nice. Except working this week and eating at Emelia's house I've spent some time with Hilda. She and her boyfriend moved to my dream location in Stockholm pretty recently. This Wednesday we went out to an amazing falafel place called Falloumi in Skanstull (which is my favourite place at the moment) and then chilled in one of their windows the rest of the night, drinking tea, listening to some LPs and talking. Last night our little "group" went to Rålambshovsparken and the Boule Bar there. It's a really nice place with a nice vibe! Especially in these warm nights (since it's outside.) I love that people in Sweden are "waking up" in the summer. The town changes with seasons, and in summer I never want to go to bed. I just want to hang out with friends and other loved ones all the time. This leads to full days, deep sleep, happiness and a lot of events! Later tonight Emelia is coming over and we'll go to town for some dancing, tomorrow my big family on dad's side will celebrate grandma's birthday and Sunday I'm having some friends over. And most of the times all of the events contain food! Yay! Isn't that just the best combo? This Sunday I'm cooking an all vegan buffé. Hopefully it'll taste like heaven. Wish me luck!

With the heat and the humidity my hair is growing bigger and bigger, I'll bet it'll grow even more in Spain. It's really nice but can get a bit hot sometimes! It's like a big blanket around the neck and the upper back haha. Isn't it interesting how our bodies change through seasons as well? How the sun, the moon, the water/humidity around us can change our mood aswell? I always feel a bit taller in summer, feel more alive, get less anxious in situations I can't handle in the winter, feel more and eat more. I also feel more athletic... although I eat and drink more shit and probably move less. I also feel like I'm more sympathetic in the summer. Even if these things actually are true or just in my head they feel great! How are you changing through the seasons? How do you feel?

Before leaving to Spain next week I thought I'd get a couple of new books to read en la playa. Hopefully that was correct. I have to get my Spanish skills back this summer. Do you have any recommendations? It's nice to get a different perspective sometimes since I'm working with books. I need to find the stars hiding in the shelfs! Help me!

Everyday life

My dear Malin.

I've been starting to take photos of my breakfast from time to time... not OK I know but this was too delicious. It's from a place in the city central and it's all vegan - acai bowl with coconut and mango cream and an oat cappuccino.

I've been growing up with these two!! Can't believe they're both graduated now. They are... 361 days younger me to be exact. And they've been around since they were born. It was such a happy day to celebrate Vendela yesterday!

Time's flying
The last two weeks has been really intense. I've moved from the apartment in Farsta and moved in at my parents house again. In the basement. The day before yesterday I happened to meet four spiders in five minutes. My best friend Emma witnessed the whole drama through the phone (sense the sarcasm.) Not going to lie though - I was terrified. This Monday I went to the dentist and removed one of my wisdom teeth. Since I'm a big softy I cried some when they were giving me the anesthesia through some (not kidding) huge shots. Even though the whole procedure went pretty easy after that my cheek continued to grow and get more swollen for days... making me look like a human version of a hamster. Fun times. It's gone back to normal now but I'm still on some heavy painkillers. But today I could finally go back to work! Looking quite normal.

I've been up in my head so much I haven't notices that it's only about two weeks until I get my summer vacation and fly to Spain for three weeks. FINALLY. I haven't been there since before my graduation in spring 2015. Both summers I've been home working my ass off while watching pictures of friends and family coming together in the area where I've spent (I think) half of all of my summers? At least two weeks every summer for as long as I can remember. It's been breaking my heart, even though I've taken a decision to work in the summers to be able to travel other times of the year. Anyway, this time is going to be perfect. I'll spend time with the twins' (in the last picture) family, my friend Fanny is visiting, my parents, my aunt and her husband and some cousins. It'll be full house pretty much my whole stay there. I'll celebrate my 21st birthday just hanging out with the people who are closest to me.

Time to get down to the spiders again. Working early tomorrow.

Books, Thinking out loud, Traveling, Yoga and meditation
This morning I decided to film my home practice and wow - I should've done that a while I go. Some poses I've felt I've done right have to improve... a lot. I mean, I can do them but it's not the right way - I'm burdening the wrong muscles sometimes and it wouldn't surprise me if I soon get hurt. One of the poses is the crow pose, Kakasana. This was actually one of my best times - I managed to hold it for a good while before I faceplanted on the mat. I know I need to look more forward and straight out my back and neck but my God, while in that pose all I want to do is to stay in the air and not faceplant. Hopefully a lot of practice will help - I'll continue to videotape my practices and hopefully learn a lot more about how my body's moving. I also think it's time to buy a block to help with my practice.

The last week in Stockholm has been amazing. The weather has gone from snow to sun and 20 degrees celsius in just a couple of days and with the sun all of the people comes out. I think a lot of us Scandinavians wake up in spring and realize how much we've missed being outside. We then try to spend every second outside, or at least open all of our windows when we're inside. For me this is the best period of the year to let my creativity flow. I get inspired by everything - birds singing, a sunray shining through my drapes. Even the sound of a lawn mower in the morning is nice to listen to. And I'm a morning person. Anyway, the last week this urge to be outside has placed me in parks with friends, walks around town and outside on my break eating ice cream in the sun by myself. To be cheesy: it's nice to be alive.

With creativity the mind also wonders and spring is the time of the year when I analyze my own behavior and feelings the most. I've learned I have some behaviors I need to unlearn. Just like some yoga poses, I've gotten into some behaviors I've felt being right but now, when I look at them from a different perspective, I've noticed they're only hurting me. The last years I've gotten more and more self confidence. I often do my own thing and enjoy myself - and everyone around me can assure you that I'm a smiling and positive person. At the same time I'm honest and I open up pretty quick to new people. This is a way for me to feel better as well, if I'm anxious it loses some of the tension if I say it out loud. Since I'm this sure in myself and my behavior it gets extra tough when I realize some of the things I do now actually hurts me. But to get over it and change, I first need to accept it. This week has been all about that acceptance. I've already started working on some areas and I'll tell you when I've managed to change something. It will take time, but it's all for the best.

Yesterday I booked a plane ticket to Spain this summer, for three weeks. Yes!! I'm going to enjoy my (first ever) payed vacation. I felt like such an adult while writing that last sentence. I imagine I'll just lay on the beach reading book after book, playing beach volleyball, swim everyday and explore towns close to our house. Siesta everyday. The sweet life. Anyway, this summer will bring some decision time as well. In July (or August at the latest) I'll know if I'll move to Gothenburg in the fall to study to become a physiotherapist. That would be great. But if not - I have to get out in the world again. My mind is wondering off to Central America (mostly Costa Rica and Nicaragua), Hawaii, Sri Lanka, Portugal... I'll probably come up with more in a couple of minutes. So what ever comes from this summer, I know it'll be a good fall. I need change, I get restless a lot. And this have continued for about three months now.

Later tonight I'm going to get out and have a long walk with my Bali friend Malin. Until then I think I'll just snuggle up with a new book. Has anyone read The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton? I've heard it's good and I've been eye balling it for a while in the store and last week I finally bought it. I'll give you my review later.

Everyday life, Thinking out loud

Right now my life is pretty much organized chaos (like the last picture.) I'm still working in the book shop, which is great, but when I'm free I'm either in town hanging out with friends all night or sleeping all day. There's no balance - which makes me feel like I'm very balanced. Weird, right? Maybe it's just the whole "Feeling alive 'cause it's spring again"-period all of us Swedes go through every year. I think it is. Before writing a whole piece on love (exciting subject, right?) I'll tell you some stuff that I appreciate right now:

I've been full vegetarian (and started to eat much vegan food as well not too long ago) which makes my body feel like a temple all the time. I've started to look forward to working out, go to dance classes and so on. I've discovered and started to cook a lot of new food (and wow it's good.) I don't really care about what other people think of me anymore, with this said I still think it's important to always be humble. It's more like: if I want to dance I'll dance and if I want to dress a certain way I'll do it. No discussion. I've had time to take a lot of baths lately (yay.) And IT'S SPRING. Thank God.

Maybe this got you thinking about what you're thankful of right now? I hope so. Take a minute or tow to number some things you appreciate at the moment - nothing is too big or small.

Alright, let's discuss love. The big thing. Four letters which sums up all of our lives. When I think about love I think about the selfless love I always get from my parents and grandparents, the feeling I get when I meet my best friends after not seeing them for a while (or even if I saw them the night before), the feeling that's spreading in my chest when I'm really happy and feel like I'm flying and of course the feeling I get when I like someone a bit extra. It's when I can't experience love, in any of these areas, I feel numb and down. Every time this happens it's not because I don't receive any love, it's because I can't accept it - see it as it is. Pure. Let's get one thing said: I'm not afraid of love. I always hug the people around me I love, I appreciate them, I tell them that I love them and try to help them see how awesome they are. That they can accomplish every challenge they meet in life. I send them a message, or call, when I haven't seen them in a while, let them know I'm thinking of them. This is something I've worked hard on, since telling people you like them, or love them for that matter, is the same as putting yourself out there. Completely naked, it sometimes feel like. But it's all worth it in the end, isn't it?

I have a lot of really close friends and family members who I love more than everything, and I always get in a good mood when I see and talk to them. It's when that extra someone shows up I get freaked out. It's not a special phenomenon, I think a lot of people feel the same way. It's all about experiences.

I was thinking I would keep digging in this to explain some of the things with love that scares the shit of of me and makes it hard for me, and people around me. But right now it actually feels way too private. I'll try to write something later, when I can choose my words more wisely. Now I'm just rambling on as always.

Books, Everyday life, Who am I

The bowl in the first picture is currently my favorite brakfast bowl. It's vegan and contains banana, mango, coconut milk, oats and a pinch of vanilla powder. It's deeeelicious. Sometimes I like to add some strawberries, chia seeds, coconut chips and goji berries. It makes me feel full for hours and it's no joke that a great breakfast start the day in the best way.

I'm really bad at blogging at the moment. It feels like I'm starting every post like this but it's true. I think about blogging much more than actually taking the time and writing down my words. Sometimes I've even written in my diary instead. When I first started it was easy for me to choose the words and sentences, since I'd been traveling for a while and the English tongue felt closer than the Swedish sometimes. It was easy for me to spill out my thoughts, my feelings and ideas. I'm not saying it's harder now, but somehow I've gotten to a place in life right now where I don't think and analyze as much as I used to do. I'm actually in a really good place at the moment. I'm feeling healthy, eating only vegetarian food (ruled out chicken as well a couple of months ago), working out a couple of times a week, spending a lot of time with friends and resting when I need to. Work is going well and I never have one of those days when I wake up and feel like I just don't want to get up. I've changed the way I think, from what I've regret to what I look forward to. I'm also trying my best to not think about yesterday or tomorrow but only today, which is much easier said than done. Maybe it's spring but I feel like I've been getting very emotional the last couple of weeks. In a positive way. I smile a lot (yes, more than usually), feel blessed a couple of times a day, sleep tight and so on. In some situations I've put myself in, like driving for a couple of hours by myself, I've started with a weird feeling in my chest and stomach before it slowly goes away. When it does, it doesn't come back.

Last night, on the train home at like 3am, I finished the book Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Wow. If you want some well written and emotional reading this is definitely your go-to! Just do it. It was so good I don't really want to start a new book too soon. I just want to let it all sink in. Although I've been eyeballing I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes for a while... might start on that one tomorrow.

Anyway, back to the title: Right now I feel like I'm doing the right thing for me. And it feels amazing.

I'll write in a while.

Thinking out loud

The fight continues.

Tell your sisters around the world, encourage each others, problematize, be that pain in the ass if it's the only way to make people understand the injustice. Educate yourself, open your mind. Be brave enough to realize how the patriarchy affects you as a woman. You and all of your sisters. Once you see the problem you can never go back, but you can make it your fight as well - to fight for a society which is equal for all genders. Where we no longer have to be sexualized, we no longer have to scared and no longer have to be punished for wanting the same security and rights in the society as men do. I will take the fight for my mother, my grandmother, my daughter, my daughter's daughter and all of my sisters around the world.

Make your voices heard, tell people off when they diminish you and don't let men think they can continue behaving the way they do. Discuss. Open their eyes. Be brave. United we stand, united we are strong.

Books, Traveling, South Africa

Dear blog, it's been one of those "long time no see". It's not the first time, probably not the last time, but remember that I from time to time keep you in mind. The last 1,5 month has flown in what feels like a second. For almost three weeks of that time I've been on the road again - this time in South Africa. One of the places on earth which feels like home for me. It was my fourth time in the country and this time I spent almost a week in Cape Town, then went on a roadtrip on Garden Route and also spent some days in Komatipoort right outside of the southern part of the Krüger Park. If I've got time, and inspiration, I'll write a post about it later.

Since I got back I've been working with the annual sale in our book shops in Sweden. It's a up beat and fun time to work, getting back on track after vacation and getting to meet many customers who, just like me, love to read. It's been pretty intense, especially the first week, but I feel like it's been fun and I've had a lot of positive energy. It's like I recharge when I'm traveling. Especially when I come from the dark winter and get to see the sun again, be outside and hang out at the beach and in other beautiful surroundings. After I got back I've started to eat vitamin D tablets since I've been a bit down and depressed during the winter months (as usual.) I've actually noticed a difference. I'm not as tired, I feel positive and inspired a lot of the time. That's one of the reasons I'm blogging today. I feel inspired.

An awesome and chill playlist to get inspired and get some groove going.

I started the day by waking up next to one of my best friends, Fanny, who's in town for a couple of days. When she left, pretty early, I got up, made my bed (actually an important part of my practice), had some breakfast and coffee and read a bit in my new book "Disclaimer" by Renée Knight. I'm not a big thriller/detective story kind of a girl, I'm more in to beautiful, feel-good, adventurous novels. The last one I finished this Friday, "The Fishermen" by Chigozie Obioma. Let me just say this: WOW. What a novel. I was stuck from the first pages, both the descriptions of the individuals and their feeling and actions were beautifully written and well written. When I finished it I felt like a part of me left with it and that I was alone. Which is a really good review. I'm not sure if I could describe it any better, just read it and you'll understand. Just do it!!

Since I'm very good at jumping from subject to subject, just like I do when I'm talking (my head is always spinning and sometimes it's hard to separate my thoughts), I realize I always have an idea in mind when I'm writing and in the end it's something completely different. I just get carried away. But maybe that's good - it gets me going and I write everything I think about. Wouldn't it be boring to read something which I had planned to the smallest inch? Is it too ego and unswedish to say that this makes the post more alive? Almost didn't follow the law of Jante there (if you don't know what it is, google it. Says a thing or two about Scandinavian people.)

Anyway, since I got home I also realized how good I'm feeling while traveling, being a lot outside, eating good food and meeting new people. This makes it a dilemma because even though I'm missing home sometimes while traveling, I get this urge to continue traveling as soon as I get back home. Oh, these dubble morals. To still this urge I'm planning a trip to the city of Gothenburg in Sweden in a couple of weeks and also a trip to Spain this summer. But then what? I've been keeping my eyes set on Central America and the Caribbean for a while now. Maybe that'll be something? Or Sri Lanka? I can continue like this for days... Alright, I'll post some nice pictures from my days back home and the trip in South Africa and try to keep my thoughts in control the next time I'm writing.

Sweden, Thinking out loud, Bali (/Indonesia)
Vansbro, Dalarna
Nusa Ceningan, Bali

Pictures from 2016 and 2017 in the same time period. The one's at the top are from the last day, hanging out with my friend Fanny in her home town in Dalarna. After work this Friday I left Stockholm with the train to get away for a couple of days, mostly to slow down and chill. I've been a bit stressed the last month, giving me stomach ache, insomnia, less appetite and so on... I've had these troubles before, when I went to school. But in Vansbro I always let my guard down and relax. I think it's mostly because Fanny lives there and her family and her are some of the most open-minded and nice people I know. I always feel welcomed. It's almost like a home away from home, if you understand what I mean?

Right now I think the symptoms are consequences of trying to always be at my best; at work, at the gym, with friends, at home, with myself etc. Right before my big test in the science course I took October-December I was very sick. Because of this I was all out and couldn't study to the last hour, I pretty much slept all day for a couple of days. Even though I slept for almost more than 16 hours I felt the stress in my chest and my stomach - what if I wouldn't do or make the test? I don't think my thoughts and behavior since that time has left yet, which keeps me stressed even though I'm finished with the course. On top of this I've had much in my head at work and also been planning with the trip to South Africa in three weeks.

Anyway! To show you something I'm also showing you pictures from 2016 the same time period as now, as I wrote earlier. Why? Well, it's not only because the pictures are nice to look at and the fact that I'm almost always longing to go to an exotic place. It's because even though the climates are different in these pictures, I'm wearing different clothes, doing different everyday routines and hanging out with different people I'm actually not in a better place in Nusa Ceningan, Bali, than here at the moment. I mean, I'm in a better place since I'm feeling very very safe and I surround myself with friends and family I love. But even though I was in Nusa Ceningan, in this magical scenery, I was feeling very alone. I wanted to see the island, and the person I wanted to see it with didn't want to follow. Luckily I met up with one of my best friend's sister! On the other side of the world, the exact same weekend - what are the odds? Anyway. I was feeling very troubled on this island, missing people from home, not being sure about where or if I should stay in Bali, not sure if I would continue with a relation to a person I started some month earlier. I think I was pretty upset and heart broken.


Why am I telling you this? Well, I think I'm trying to tell you something you've probably heard many times before: just because the pictures are beautiful and you think people on social media are super happy and better than ever - there's always a story behind the person in front or, or holding, the camera. With that said: when scrolling on instagram or other social media and starting to feel low since everyone seems to live a happier and more exciting life than yourself - remember to think that everyone's fighting their own battle and there's no problem with you if your pictures don't look as happy or exciting. What matters are if you're comfortable in your life situation. If you are - Congratulations! Stay strong and remember you're right where you want to be. If not - try to see how you can change your patterns, what do you want to do? Then go do it!! When at your happiest and most comfortable times these pictures will no longer bother you.

Take care of each other and let's start next week with being nice to ourselves.

Love and light,

Sweden, Thinking out loud, Who am I

Pictures taken during the day: morning - Year review of 2016 in Swedish national TV. Daytime - having a bite and some sparkling wine with the one and only Malin. Night - New Year's Eve party at Matilda's and Niclas' apartment with a group of wonderful people. In the last picture Ella, Matilda's sister, and me are getting ready for the famous "Moranisse" shots.

Hello 2017!

Since Christmas I've been thinking a lot about the year that has passed, with all of its good and bad. Even though there has been some tough, angry and sad moments during the year I feel like I've learned from all of it and because of it I'm bringing a healthier, more open, mind in to the new year. Except of those times I've also had some "time of my life" moments. I've realized how much my family means to me, I've met a lot of new close friends, traveled and gained more understandning. Last but not least I've now worked more than six months with something I love and I wouldn't trade any of my colleagues for anything in the world.

When chatting with friends about the last year it's almost impossible to not notice a scary change in the world. 2016 was a tough year in all areas and it's hard to keep up a good mood when entering 2017. I feel like I'm obligated to do the things I can to get the world back on its feet - be nice, do the best I can to take care of our environment and all of the people living in our world. I'll also keep working on my attitude and courage to actively work for the women of our society - to not give up until I always feel safe and have the same rights as men. The last couple of months, if not years, there's been a lump in y stomach and chest when watching men "behave" in the everyday life. I've felt ignored, uncomfortable and like I'm an inferior. This has, in the end, caused an anger inside which I have a problem letting out, except the occasional deadly stare and heated discussion....

Let's talk more about the inner change in me as a person the last year. I've had many experiences which has showed me more and more who I am and what I care for. I know I love to be around people, friends and family but that I also sometimes love to be alone with myself and my thoughts. I've been a lot better at forgiving, when it's the best thing to do in the situation. I've learned how to control myself when I'm feeling stressed and how important it is to just let it go sometimes. The most important thing is that I've started to believe in myself and trust my own decisions and instincts - because who is supposed to be better at deciding for me than me?

For the year of 2017 I haven't made any promises. I never do, but still. I'm going to keep trusting my instincts and just do my own race. There's no goal, nothing I really want to change for the better or worst. I'm just going to keep reading, doing yoga and meditation, sipping tea, traveling, talking forever with friends, laugh, dance and whatever I feel like doing. This year I'm entering with an open heart and an open mind. Let's all make at least one promise to each other: to treat each other with love and care and always try to see the situations we get in from different perspectives. Let's learn and not continue to do the same mistakes.

Tomorrow's Monday and also Appreciation Day here on the blog! Think while you're reading: What am I extra thankful for this moment?

Love and light,
