Inspired By: My Grandfather's Garden

The are many ways to create a garden, and many ways to be a gardener. I have grown up with several beautiful gardens in my life. But the two that most influence me today are the one at the farm where I lived with my family from I was 13-17 years old and the second is my Grandfather's magical garden on the island of Thurø, which is not far from here. There I spent every summer holiday ...

Wedding: Holly & James

I am so grateful for the cool couples who come here to get married, and who don't care one bit about the weather. But I was also really happy that Holly and James decided to get married indoors, so I finally got the chance to create the indoor ceremony setup in the cottage that I have seen in my mind's eye for a few years now.

The West Coast

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.

Inspired By: Jonna Jinton

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). I have been following Jonna on Instagram for a few years now, and it always lifts my spirit when I see one of her magical landscapes or moods show up in my feed.

What is it like to live on an island?

I get that question alot. Somehow it is a circumstance that facinates people, also Danes, even though Denmark, in addition to the main Peninsula, Jutland, is made up of no less than 1.419 smaller islands, out of which over 400 are inhabited.

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?

August 2017

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).
