Maria is the name my mother gave me. Fröken is what my little students call me. Mom is what my little girl says about a gazillion sweet times a day. I call myself a minimalist, and I am most definitely a gardener, and a hiker addicted to photography. I choose the name SagittariusViking for my blog. I have by all means been a very typical Sagittarius so far in my life.
A Sagittarius loves to travel, have an open mind and, and a philosophical view. It motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is extrovert, optimistic and enthusiastic, and likes changes.
A lot of that perfectly describes me. The fact that my ancestors, on both parents sides, were vikings, doesn’t exactly lessen my desire to explore. Maybe a slightly more mindful exploring, compared to the average viking. My blog, and my art prints is a results of my (inner and outer) explorations. By the end of 2019 I returned to Sweden the country of my birth, after spending eight years in the US, and prior to that traveling all over Europe. I am at home now. I’m a single mom, 40 years old, content, and happy. I have a work that I love. My goal of having a small homestead is within reach. My explorations now are closer to home and heart. I enjoy learning more about the beautiful region Dalarna (Sweden) where I live. I also constantly explore different ways of living a more self sufficient life, and becoming a better version of me.
I started this blog to encourage a healthy lifestyle, with a close connection to nature and animals, using my photos and stories as the medium for inspiration. During busy times you might only find one post a week, but often several. If you are looking for more inspiration there is prints of my favourite photos available in my gallery, and I have written a couple books that are available on Amazon:
