Another travel photo story… Gosh I have been around the world this summer! My mother and I visited Denmark to see the beloved, Sisse Aagaard. I met her at FACE Stockholm when we were both interns. We became best friends in almost a day and I cherish her presence constantly in my life!
She took us to her town, Helsingør, about a 45 minute train ride north of Copenhagen to meet her family, see her home, and treat us with traditional Danish cuisine. A day of a life-time with one of the sweetest families I know! Thank you again, Aagaards!!!
