The last few months have been a whirlwind of travel, deadlines, interviews, exciting projects, and some amazing collaborations (announcements coming soon) that I am brimming with gratitude. Grateful for being able to do what I truly love, which is visually and verbally exploring culture through food, tradition, and lifestyle. You can check out some of my latest publications here.

But it’s time to shift gears into parking mode for awhile. To relax, rejuvenate, and indulge in some much needed self-care. This means, while everyone is now coming back home from their vacation, I am about to head off on mine until the very end of August.

Except, I am going absolutely nowhere and will be reveling in my own backyard – Stockholm. Soaking up the last few weeks of glorious summer here in my stunning little city.

Once back online, I have so much to share – from Wales and Tanzania to Slovenia and beyond.

But, for the rest of the month, I am looking forward to slowing down, working on my novel (so excited!), and just soaking up the warmth and love of my family.
