Where do my people come from?? DNA testing will tell me!

Yesterday I turned 51. Its hard for me to believe that I am that old/young. Sometimes I laugh when I think about my life and how I feel and how I live my life. Am I a normal 51 year old? What’s “normal” today? Things have changed so much. When I was a weeee girl,

Trip of a life time to Finland with my mother

We just came in the door from spending the last 3 nights in Finland with my mother, Taimi. WHAT A JOURNEY! My mother is 82 years old and she was born in Finland. She came to Sweden when she was 5 years old as a “war child”. If you have never heard that term before,

What? It’s nearly my birthday???? :)

7/17/67. The best day of my life. I have so much to be thankful for. I have enriching opportunities that are presented to me every day and simply put, I love my life. I celebrate every single day because I consider my life to be worth celebrating. If it isn’t, then what’s it all for?

How a day can turn bad quickly.

Do you ever have days where you feel like the money you have just won’t last? Won’t cover your bills or get you to the next pay check? I know I have. My entire career I have always had plenty of money. I have lived within my means. My parents raised me to never spend

Love exciting and new, come aboard we’re expecting youuuuuuu….

And we’re back from the US. Feeling a bit jet lagged today but it was all worth it! It was a short trip (6 days) but it was long enough to see the entire family and to celebrate the marriage of my sweet God Daughter Miss Emma to her beloved Chad. We flew direct from

Paris in the springtime…. mon dieu!

I took 4 years of French in high school and  I should have paid more attention. Thankfully I travelled with my bestie Tim who happens to be a genius with languages. Flying non stop on SAS from Stockholm to Paris took only 2 hours and 15 minutes, easy peasy!! The point of my being invited

Summer, summer, summer time. A little DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince AND an exercise for you to start this season off right

It’s the most wonderful time of the yeaaaaar. Oh wait, that’s another song. The summer weather is here, birds are singing, pollen is flying and filthing up everything (at least it covers over the dust in my house and I blame it on that :)) and we have vacations about to start. What are your
