The 17th of May we celebrate our national day here in Norway. It is kind of a BIG deal with everyone dressing up in their best clothes and going out in the streets to celebrate. I remember the day as one of the best days in the year from my childhood because we were allowed to have as many hotdogs, sodas and ice creams we could eat - no questions asked!
When you have sent most of your stuff with a moving company across the country it can be a challenge to make it nice and cozy around you, big holiday or not. But thanks to a few seasonal cookies from the bakery, a ribbon, a flower and these new additions to my milk glass collection from yesterdays Sunday market - I think we can manage to get in the 17th of May spirit!
And with one of my best friends Ulla inviting us over to her place for a three course meal I think we are pretty much set for a fabulous day tomorrow *smile*
Hurra for 17.mai!
