Best Place On Earth... Home

Where we love is home-home that our feet may leave,
but never our hearts....

As we woke up early Saturday morning in Norway, Arvid looks at me with a big
 smile and he says, "we are going home."  Those were the best words I could hear.
The Norwegian sunrise was pretty amazing as we headed to the airport in Oslo,
but even that could not contain our excitement to be heading back home.

As mentioned the summer was a good one. Many memories made and many friendships-bonds 
that were strengthened.  Could not have been better except for the fact that we
 were on  our way home.  Even at this hour in the morning, Norway was 
waking up to a beautiful day, but also very cold.

We arrived home exhausted.  We were on the road for a total of 24 hours.
First time in my 14 trips to Norway that I have been this exhausted.  same for Arvid.
Even so once we got home, Brutus was waiting for us and for his brushing.  I dropped 
everything and brushed him for a very long time.  In between he had many nibbles with Arvid.

Good morning everyone.  The best feeling in the whole world is to be back home.
I have never been away from home this long.  26 days.  Though very good,
 I am not used to it.  Next year is far from here, but right now I don't know
that i would want to be gone from home for that long, but then I say
the same thing every year.  Whole year to think about it :)

For now it's back to reality and boy do we love it!!!
Good morning everyone.  I can never stop saying how GOOD 
it is to be back home where we belong.  Wishing you all a good day.
Remember to count your blessing and to be thankful for what you have.

We do!
Home is where the heart is...
