Well, hello! It’s me! God, I am a terrible blogger. As soon as life gets in the way, ZAP! The blog just goes right to the bottom of the to-do list. Eh, oh well. I always come back, don’t I?? Anyway, as you probably put gathered from the lack of activity here, life has been INSANE. I know I always say that, but this time I really, really mean it. Between work, travel, a husband in […]

I think I can honestly say that there is nothing better than Swedish summer. It may only last one week per year (sob), but when the sun shines, the whole country just comes alive! After our France/Italy/Switzerland extravaganza, we had planned a few quiet days in Stockholm with my dad and brother before heading back to Colorado. Unfortunately, as soon as we got to Stockholm both Conrad and I became pretty sick (probably due to travel, lack […]

The trip recap continues!  The day after the big party, we decided to take a little road trip to our favorite Italian border town, Susa. Originally founded by the Gauls, Susa eventually became a part of the Roman Empire, and remains of the Roman city are still found in the town’s central square. It’s small and charming, and one of our favorite places to visit in Italy. Oh, and it’s only an hour’s drive from […]

I consider myself to be pretty well-traveled, but when I think of a pro, I immediately picture my mom. She’s been traveling the world since she was five years old, and has not stopped since. I think we once tried to count how many countries she’d been to, and the number tallied way over 100. She’s been in more airports than anyone I know, and she is a complete master when it comes to packing and traveling. […]

The evening of the party, we had a slight change in weather. Instead of the brilliant sun we’d had the whole week, the sky was suddenly flooded with big, dark clouds and a cool fog covered the mountains. Luckily, my dad had sprung for a cabin big enough to hold us all, just in case of rain. Well planned, Papa! And thus, the preparations began. The men even braved the elements to work the grill! […]

Hello and happy Tuesday! I’ve got a lot to share with you today☺ On the day before the party, we had a few hours to kill before guests started pouring in. A group of us decided to load up the car and drive around the valley for a little sight-seeing. There’s a lot of pictures, so I’ll let them do the talking today…Enjoy! Is it too soon to go back? xxLena
