Week 1

Hi Shanon!
I'm so excited to be writing the year's first postcard! This one is from my dad's house, which is about 170 miles from where we live. All of Sweden has been covered in snow these last few weeks and the temperatures have been around -20C, that's about -4F. We've taken some snowy walks, wrapped up in warm clothes, but mostly we've relaxed in the living room where the fireplace is. I've read lots of books this Christmas, and the one I liked best is called The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer. It's a really heartwarming book, which is good for cold weather!



Happy 2010 Moa!
So much of the time that we were in Duluth over New Years I was thinking of your cities in Sweden. This is what it looked like out our hotel window. We forgot to ask for a room facing Lake Superior, so we were looking up the hill instead! It is kind of pretty though, sort of like a Christmas village, if you squint. ; )
I hope you had a cozy New Year's Eve, and that the year is off to a great start!


  1. What a lovely idea Moa and Shanon!

  7. What a beautiful idea! Shanon, where did you stay in Duluth? I'm originally from Cloquet (only 15 minutes away) so I'm curious! Can't wait to see more :)

  9. Jamie, that's actually the view from the back side of the Holiday Inn downtown. We usually stay in the Comfort Inn & Suites in Canal Park, when we aren't staying with friends or friends' parents who live out on Park Point. =)

    Hi Jacqueline! Thank you! xoxo
