Our 1st Visitors!

Today, my mom & grandma arrive!! I am excited to see my mom (it has only been three weeks, so I don't miss her too much yet, but shhh don't tell her). But I am so excited to see my grandma! She has never been to Europe! Her dad was born here in Sweden, so I'm hoping this trip will give her more than a good time & pictures. I'm hoping it will be able to connect her to her heritage & to relatives she had never met! I plan on tagging along and doing the same!

The past two years my mom has also visited. The first year she flew into Kalmar, on her first flight alone! We had a great time, went to Copenhagen, Gothenburg, a game in Karlskoga, and enjoyed Oskarshamn. The second year she flew into Stockholm with my Dad and sister from Minneapolis. I flew from Kalmar to Stockholm. My brother and his girlfriend also came to Stockholm but they flew up from Brussels where they had been vacationing for a while. My brother had spent the last few months in India so my parents were missing him too. I believe it was about 9 in the morning when we all were reunited! It was wonderful!! We had a hockey game to go to that night.. at Hovet! Oskarshamn was playing Djurgården! 

This is the only picture from the game. Who would have known Sam would be playing for them this year?! 

It was such a wonderful place to meet in Stockholm! I think we all fell a little in love with the city!

This photo was taken after the game of all of us :) I was so happy to see everyone! Also I forgot to mention it was almost Christmas!! Aka: the most wonderful time of the year.

Photo I took the first year of my mom getting off the plane in Kalmar. 

The first picture I ever took of this so beautiful city that I now call home

Ok so maybe it's only been three weeks since I have see her, but I will admit. I miss my mom, how could I not!! 4:30 cannot come soon enough! 

& how cute is my grandma! Ahhh I am so excited to see what she thinks of it all :)

Xoxo one happy girl
