A Dream for the Future ~ CHBM Photo Friday

It's Photo Friday at Crazy Hip Blog Mamas and today's theme is 'Secret Dreams'. I have many dreams... one of which is to travel to Norway (although it isn't so secret). I would love to see the fjords and meet distant relatives. I'm 4th generation American but still +50% Norwegian - both my parents' grandparents emigrated from Norway in the early 1900s. I've been in touch with several of my distant cousins and am anxious to someday meet them in person.

I'm currently away from home (we went to the big city for Easter & are staying with friends) but when I return, I'll post a more lengthy narrative of my family history. Geneaology is one of my passions and I have been developing a 'Family Legacy' scrapbook album for each branch of my family. Some lines can be traced back to the 1200s.


  1. Very cool...I'm Norwegian (Nana and PAPA were almost 100%) as well...with some Irish and German (from the other set of grandparents)...the picture looks awesome!

  2. Great picture! It's hard to follow your dreams with kids, but you have to try.

  3. My parents just got back from Norway and talked about how beautiful it was--the picture is fabulous.
