When Norway comes to Colorado you drop everything to make sure you get to hug them at least once or twice! My dear friend Laken was able to schedule some Colorado dates in on her trip back home to visit family in the states. She met her husband in Norway, fell in love with him & the culture, and is now raising her beautiful family out there. I flew out to be in her wedding three years ago and that is the last time I was able to squeeze her. She has had two babies since then, so there was a lot of hugging & squeezing to do to make up for the time! We sat on the back porch, swapped stories, drank Colorado beer, laughed, and sat in the golden hour glow as the sun set behind the mountains. Some friendships pick right up where they left off and I am forever thankful for friendships like that.
