This week has already been off to a great start! Shopping with mom, lunch with friends and a basketball game! Rock Chalk!
The rest of the week is full of similar activities. Lots of lunch dates, coffee dates, errands and best of all, Thanksgiving on Saturday. Mom and I are going to start cooking Wednesday! It will be so nice to be with friends and family, celebrating my favorite holiday, one last time. Fredrik and I have already decided to take on the task of having an annual Thanksgiving day feast for his family. It will ease the pain of missing my own family. What a great husband, to agree to this! :) I love him.
Although incredibly excited, I am terrified to land in Sweden and it will be around 6:30pm, pitch dark and probably snowing and or raining! Yuck! This is not the most wonderful weather time of year in Sweden, that is for sure. The shortest day of the year is only a few weeks away from when I arrive. Double yuck! But, Christmas in Sweden is very magical. Lots of snow, lights and chilly walks outside with my hunny.
In Sweden, they definitely put off putting up Christmas decorations. It's kind of their way of avoiding cold weather! As a dear friend stated in her blog, putting up Christmas early isn't about waiting for Santa, it's about looking forward to the season! I personally love early Christmas decorations!
This is a picture taken the first few days I was back in Kansas. I realized I put a lot of pictures of family on my blog, but these girls definitely deserve a big mention. They are all my high school friends and the best friends I could ever ask for. And a special shout out to my faithful readers! I love getting comments, makes me feel happy to write! :) So thank you!
