a few more memories of Sweden....

gosh it's always hard leaving Sweden... we have been so many times it feels kind of like my feet are planted strong in both places so far apart... I always used to feel uneasy with planting my roots... I knew it was something important to do... needed to be done... but I never could decide where my roots would grow... where they would climb deep and feel strong enough... It wasn't until this last visit that actually, while watching this amazing sparrow bird soar so elegantly above my head, gliding like a feather in the blue sky... it kinda hit me... I don't need to plant my roots... I kinda feel like an air plant... I have roots planted in Florida.. they like it here, this is home... but then my roots need to fly to Sweden... they like to explore the coasts of Sweden... feeling the cold... my roots like to explore and feel firm in the ground but are ok with traveling and planting themselves in other lands... I may have gypsy roots... 
where will we go next......?



this is the "Priest's Bathtub Beach!" ... do you see how it's kinda a pool...  




my niece is irresistible in ways I cannot even explain! I hated saying goodbye to this awesome little girl...  












our little fisher girl... 


she was trying to catch the wind in this pic... feel the sun touch her heart... 





I truly hope my girls never ever lose their sense of wonder... their free spirit... I hope the wind keeps them young and happy and yearning to explore every mountain, every valley, every forest, every ocean... wanting to catch every frog, flip every rock... just be free... that is my wish for these amazing children!
