…Prayer…

Disclaimer: This post was originally written right after the 4th of July weekend. It’s been awhile since my last guest blog post here… And I’m glad to be back! I was inspired recently by the “Letter to the Ephesians” topic being picked apart in my church in Barcelona. Our head Pastor, John, especially got myContinue reading “…Prayer…”

A Perfect Love Story

So this is the first time I’ve written a blog post from up in the air in an airplane… But this post has been a long-time coming. For a week now I’ve been meaning to start writing this post, but as life would have it, things have delayed its creation until now. I have beenContinue reading “A Perfect Love Story”

Flax & What?

Calling all health nuts… in Barcelona that is… You guys if you haven’t tried Flax & Kale yet, don’t walk – run! Located in a sunny corner spot on Carrer de Tallers, Flax & Kale has quickly become a healthy restaurant staple in Barcelona’s Raval area, and the city at large for that matter.

Calçotada: Take 1

Yesterday was yet another first to check off the ole bucket list: go to a calçotada – aka a traditional Catalan onion BBQ. Calçots are long, skinny stalks of onions that are a local staple during the winter months. Family and friends gather together in restaurants, in parks or at home, to eat a vastContinue reading “Calçotada: Take 1”

First Time For Everything

My birthday was lovely… It was my first birthday away from my family and good friends, but Damian, his family, and my friends here spoiled me. The actual birthday was spread out in about a week’s worth of festivities – one night I went to a cabaret show here (The Hole 2) with my oldContinue reading “First Time For Everything”

While you may not be able to use Uber as a taxi service here, you can now order food from the best restaurantsContinue reading “UberEATS”

#Lent2015

Growing up at Southwood Lutheran Church in Lincoln, Nebraska, I have always known about Lent and, moreover, enjoyed it. Considering today is Ash Wednesday, I thought it opportune to talk about Lent and what it means in today’s world and how you can actively participate this year. I currently live in Barcelona, Spain and recentlyContinue reading “#Lent2015”

But first, café(s)

Although I didn’t even like the smell of coffee until college, I have since come quite a long way; nowadays I almost always have at least one cup in the morning and then often times another after lunch (and/or siesta). Now don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely not a coffee snob nor addict, I justContinue reading “But first, café(s)”

Love is this. Love is that.

Most people are familiar with the bible verse that details the nature of love in its purest form. This particular verse was in fact my confirmation verse back in the day- first Corinthians 13: 4-8 states: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. ItContinue reading “Love is this. Love is that.”

365 New Days

So it’s 2015. …What?! This spring that means I will be SIX years out of high school, and that is absolutely wild. Pardon my delayed post; December went by in a whirlwind and now I’ve been revamping the majority of the blog in general so this is the final piece of that puzzle. First thingsContinue reading “365 New Days”
