So Much to be Thankful for!

As usual, I'm still behind on writing, and I know I haven't shared the second half of my October trip pictures yet. But, before it gets too close to Christmas I wanted to put up just one picture that captures just how lucky I am here in Norway. Thanksgiving was a last minute affair, with messages and texts sent out a few days before, after I decided that yes, I would host a dinner. I cooked the basics (turkey, stuffing, potatoes, green beans and pumpkin pie) and my friends contributed Norwegian touches (kålrabistappe, sweet potatoes Norwegian style, and plenty of local beer). We were about half-half Norwegian-American, a perfect mix.

I had some help moving my dining set into the main living room, so we could dine in front of a roaring fire, with NFL Game Pass streamed football on the TV in the next room. It couldn't have been more perfect.
