It’s true!!! We are headed to Sweden today. I am beyond excited. My very crazy, generous parents are taking us (my family, my brother Josh’s family, and my brother Joash) all to Sweden for a week. Sadly my brother Joel and his family can’t go because the adoption of their 3 little ones hasn’t gone through yet. They will be missed. And yes, this is the same parents that took us to Ireland a couple years ago. My parents have blessed me my whole life with the gift of traveling and seeing the world. And now they are blessing my kids as well. They really are incredible people and I am so grateful for the heritage they have given me.
I’ve mentioned before that my mom’s dad was Swedish/Canadian. We’ve all wanted to go to Sweden for as long as we can remember. The really cool thing about this trip is that my mom has done a lot of research and we actually get to meet out Swedish relatives. How cool is that?
We are flying into Stockholm, spending a couple days there and then heading to the towns and villages where my great grandparents were from. We are getting together with 37 of our extended family for a Swedish Christmas buffet at an inn Wednesday night. We are all so excited to meet new relatives and learn about our family history and heritage. I can’t wait to share with you all that we learn.
So, I’ve been pinning all things Sweden for a couple months now. I am going to go crazy there. I better bring a really big suitcase for all my souvenirs.
We’ll definitely have to pick up a Stockholm or Sweden map for my Globe/Map/Atlas loving hubby. This one has such gorgeous colors.
I often look at wedding images and think that I wish I could re-do things from my own wedding. But, this gorgeous Swedish wedding takes the cake. I would LOVE to have had this as my wedding. Every detail is so gorgeous perfection. Oh, Sweden, we haven’t even met yet, and I already love you.
If you’ve been to Sweden and have some recommendations of sites to see and things to eat. I’d love to hear. I’ll be taking a blog break so I can fully enjoy this trip, but there will be an overload of Instagrams, if you want to follow me on my adventure.
