I recently have been receiving the kindest emails from you. First, I’m so sorry. I know how frustrating broken links are and I’m so touched that so many of you have emailed me asking where the old posts can be found. So here’s what happened.
I switched website platforms so instead of using Squarespace, I’m now using WordPress. I really loved Squarespace, their interface was awesome and clean, the templates were nice. But, in the end, I needed a little bit more customization to create things like my personal website + portfolio. Plus, I totally fell in love with Station Seven and all their beautiful templates. This is Coastal.
So, when I made this big switch, I was able to upload all my blog text, BUT all the images were hosted by Squarespace so they all are now tiny icons instead. I went back and re-uploaded images to this site for my most recent or most favorite posts. However, the really old posts are silently waiting until someone emails me and asks after them.
If you loved an old post, maybe you saw it on Pinterest or BHG and the link is broken, write me or post a comment here. I promise to search it out, dust it off and make that post live for all the world to see.
And as for what is going on with me? Well, I hope you’ve been following along on Instagram and Snapchat, but if not here’s the update:
I finished up language school last winter and I got a job! I am working as an Interior Architect for a navel engineering firm in Copenhagen, which means I get to design the inside of ferry, cruise and offshore platforms. I hadn’t even ever considered designing for marine but its basically a designer’s dream job because it’s essentially a hotel, just in the water. So we design ever type of space, from the lobby to the restaurants (usually multiple, all with different concepts) and the cabins to the lounges, plus all kinds of specialty spaces like movie theaters and game rooms. It is a pretty darn fun gig.
On top of all the fun professional stuff, we’ve been traveling like crazies. Seriously, we’re averaging one trip a month this year. Mostly we’ve been exploring all Sweden has to offer with trips up to Gothenberg or way way up to Abisko. During our summer holiday (because this is Europe and we all take a month off in the summer) we headed up the Stockholm and just wandered around all their neighborhoods for four days. It feels like there is so much to see right here in our own backyard!
Anyway, I just wanted to pop in and say send me a message if you want and old post and I hope you are having lots of adventures, too.
