Sometimes, life asks you to let go of what you’re holding on to the tightest. Whether it’s a job, a relationship or a place, you’re forced to let go. Interviewing former Extra! host Dayna Devon this month was a reminder of that lesson. My time with her — both during our photo shoot and interview — was one of the most surprising, fun and emotional moments I’ve experienced in a long time. I felt we had so much in common, and I’ve thought about our conversations many times since. It reminded me how important it is to keep our hearts open to new experiences. No matter who we are, change is inevitable, and when we embrace change instead of fighting it, something new and beautiful will often emerge. Don’t miss her feature!
I also interviewed Audrina Patridge, who found fame on the reality show The Hills and is currently the host of NBC’s 1st Look. Audrina embodies that rare combination of sweetness, generosity and business smarts that often accompany very successful people. Kudos to her for remaining true to her heart after navigating the crazy world of paparazzi and fame at such a young age. The revealing interview with Audrina — photographed exclusively for Sweden With Love by Elizabeth Messina — will premiere on February 5.
As usual, we’ll enjoy a Healthy Treat from Sweden With Love contributor Jennifer Little, whose delicious concoctions have turned into a huge hit in our house! And after a break from our monthly art show Curated, we’re back with a wonderful exhibit that will make you wish for summer!
