Thanksgiving in New Jersey + Exploring New York + Traveling with a pug

Another Sunday and the day I share a bit more personal content here on the blog. For the week of Thanksgiving we traveled to the east coast and spent it with my boyfriends family in Ridgewood, New Jersey. It was such a lovely time with so much good food, fun New York touristy activities and enjoying the beautiful fall weather that we were lucky to get.

For the first time ever we also brought our puggie, Merlin, with us on the plane and I have to say it was surprisingly easy. We flew with Southwest and I can highly recommend that to anyone traveling with a pug or other small/medium bread. They didn’t check or weigh Merlin, they didn’t even inspect our carrier, but only cared about us having a reservation for him and paying for it ($95.00/trip).

Week in Sweden & Breakfast Diaries

When in Sweden I always eat open faced sandwiches with “Kalles” kaviar in a tube, sliced cheese and cucumbers. It’s just something I’ve always eaten when I grew up and still lived in Sweden – and I miss it terribly when in Los Angeles.

I’m taking a bit of a blog break while in Sweden, want to spend all my time with family and friends, but will be back in Los Angeles in a few days. For more frequent updates visit my instagram page @whipitwithval
