i learned the word smorgasborg one saturday mid day while my dad, brother and i were looking in the fridge for lunch. there was nothing in there to put together a cohesive meal, or perhaps my brother and i couldnt agree on what to eat. so we put out every delish leftover and morsel we had in the fridge. it made a lasting impression on me.

so i love the word smorgasborg. and it really seems to apply to my life right now.

i’ve been steeping in school work, family time and little jobs here and there. it’s been difficult for me to know what to post the last few weeks since my weeks haven’t really made space for long posts, big art pieces or much writing other than working on my thesis. i have been keeping a mini journal for a few of my classes and taking some photos here and there as well as loving a few soulful songs playing over and over.

so i thought- perfect. a smorgasborg of life. if you were to make a smorgasborg of your life of the last few weeks… what would it look like? when’s the last time you made a collage of images or words that describe how life has been? i invite you to make your own smorgasborg to share with friends or to keep as a memory.

here’s mine…. those of you who follow me on instagram may have seen some of these….

First up!
