My niece is getting married, my sister's daughter, and she has chosen to be married in Norway, where my mother was born. (Her story here).
We are all so excited!! It will be a fast trip, but we will also get to travel to the northern part of Norway and meet with our aunts and cousins there.
The picture below is my sister and I when we were little girls and visited Norway with my family. Here we are with the 'laplanders', the native people from the very northern part of Norway. We had laplander outfits when we returned to America, and I wish I had kept mine!
I will get to visit my aunt, my mother's younger sister, who was in concentration camp during Hitler's invasion of Norway. (Her story here).
I feel so blessed to be taking this trip. It is a gift from God!
There WILL be pictures to share!! I just got my passport in the mail. I cannot believe the person in that mug shot is me!
