The Danish West coast nourishes me on every level. Although I live surrounded by the sea here on Aeroe, the West coast is something entirely different: The drama and scale, the power of nature, the colours of the sky, the sand, the windswept grasses, the deep mossy pine woods. I go here at least once a year, and if I don't I feel a longing deep inside me.Read More

It's been a VERY long time since I last did an 'Inspired by...' blogpost. But I am writing one today, and I think I will do more of them in the future, because when I discover something or someone that genuinely touches me and inspires me I want to do all I can to share the love and do my small bit at helping them towards more success.
Today, I want to share Jonna with you. In case you don't already know her she is a young Swedish girl who moved from the big city and now lives in a tiny village far into the deep woods of Sweden. She creates the most incredible photos, films, art and songs (or Kulning as it is traditionally called).

Just this past week two different lovely women (who are currently both living in the Copenhagen area) wrote me on Instagram to ask me that same question: What is it like living on an island? (and more specifically Ærø). They ask because they are considering moving here, or at least moving out of the city.Read More
August was a beautiful bountiful PLUM month. Having a bounty of food right at my doorstep makes me feel blessed. I am by no means a religious person, so I don't mean blessed in the religious sense. But blessed in the sense that I feel like I am where I need to be at this time in my life, blessed because we are lucky to live right here right now, because the whole family is healthy, because I have the freedom to do what I love, to take pictures, to cook, to forage, to grow (in every sense of the word).Read More
