About The Blog: Oldways for Modern Days
Traditions can ground us and help us create a legacy
Through this blog I share my passion for a simpler life with others. I also share my belief that good food is for everyone while I unlock the history behind traditional and regional recipes. Through stories, anecdotes, recipes and life-hacks and spiritual musings I illustrate how tapping into older ideals can ground us in our ordinary day, connect us to our past, or help us transcend the monotony. Through these topics and my passion for them I help others to create their own legacy and ground themselves in tradition amidst a chaotic world.
If you are present in the moment, even ordinary tasks such as cooking, doing the laundry or cleaning out a closet can bring a deep sense of satisfaction and connection. It can become a sacred duty. Learn to create your own simple daily rituals and traditions to center you on your own life’s path.
Oldways for Modern Days
I have always been drawn to ritual. Rituals help us to stay grounded in our traditions; they breathe fresh life into activities that have withstood the test of time. Ritual can ground us in the moment, or help us to transcend the mundane. I am deeply inspired by my ancestral heritage (Northern European) and the place where I live believing both influence the person I am today, and how I experience the world.
I create ritual for my family in order to create a legacy for them that they can pass down to the next generations. In this global world, traditions can help everyone to feel that they have a place to come “home” to, even if that place is not a physical location.
