an American friend in Sweden...

I always think it's quite amazing how small our world just is... whenever I think of my friend Heidi... it seems quite so! back awhile ago when I worked at a shop in town, one evening a couple walked in.. we got to talking and it came up that our husbands were both from Sweden... and from quite close to each other... like a town away! we would bump into each other at the Swedish club events every winter... then... when we went to our first midwife appointment with our first little girl... in walked HEIDI!!! she was going to be our midwife!!!!!!!! she delivered our little sweet Isabelle in our home 4 1/2 years ago... since then she has moved to Sweden with her lovely Swedish husband Martin... and their little girl Iris... THEN they had their little Camile in Sweden 1 1/2 years ago... both our girls are about the same age! Every year when we visit we get together with them! It's lovely where they live and the kids have so much fuN! It always reminds me of our daughter's birthday... remembering Heidi at our birth brings on a flood of Mamma emotions... and I just love her for that! Thanks for a beautiful day!!!! beautiful family you all are!!!

can you seriously take it! This is just down the street from where they live! it's so gorgeous! I love forests... they remind me of every fairytale I ever read... all the best stories take place in a forest... it's fun to remember as you're hiking... looking at the mossy stumps... the huge trees... the green canopy... the trolls... the fairies...
