Winter Photo Update

In the past few months, I’ve been especially grateful to have such a cozy quite comfortable place to call home.  It makes weekend adventures fun, allows me to save energy for special activities at work, and provides flexibility when family and friends are in need.  In the past month, we celebrated Hanukkah, shared our last Smörgåsbord dinner with Farmor (“father’s mother” in Swedish), enjoyed a white Christmas, and have had plenty of opportunities to play in nearly two feet of snow!  This past weekend we celebrated the life of my grandmother, Farmor, who  died peacefully at age 97.  Her incredibly positive attitude and nurturing personality will stay with us throughout our lives.

    Lovely photos of some recent times. So wonderful Farmor could share another Smorgasbord–a perfect ending before her passing. Love to you all.
