And so the adventure begins...

...officially left Atlanta for Malmö. Feels unreal? I keep thinking I’m just going to be here for the holidays. 

Started my Monday with errands + Chick Fil A breakfast (priorities am I right 😏). Got to enjoy beautiful 16 degree celsius weather and clear blue skies for a couple of hours with this handsome fella before I left.

Lori came over for a final “see you later” hug too! Plenty of selfies were taken.

Mike always refuses to be in pictures but when two moms are around he gets forced to deal with it 👏🏻

Off to the airport we went  🥳

Love this city so so so much. However, I will not miss rush hour traffic 24/7 😅

What’s the airport without mirror bathroom selfies?

Had to eat an American meal before takeoff 🙈

Forgot/left some things at the airport (was rearranging things in my bag and took some stuff out meanwhile, and accidentally left it). This is very unusual for me, as the last time I lost something at the airport was when I was about 9 or 10 flying back from France and left my new coloring pens in the seat in front of me. Luckily, it wasn’t my passport or wallet this time either so I’ll take it as a win.

Touchdown Chicago 🛬

In Chicago, I had to re-check in & get through security one more time.

That’s where I met this lady! Her daughter was dropping her off and she had never flewn alone before. Truly believe it was the universe telling me something. She is an incredible artist, what are the odds? Check her work out here!

On my long flight, I got upgraded to economy plus. What a blessing. Thanks times a million to SAS!! Extra legroom, wider seats, thicker blankets, bigger screens, goodie bag, real silverware, etc. No complaints over here!

Pro tip I learned from mom: put your freezing butter on the hot meal for a little and it’ll be perfect ☺️

What a view, WOW.

Went straight from the airport to Baka and Branko’s boulle end of year party. Brought down the average age pretty good 😅 We sang, ate, and played games 🎄 Had time for some errands after before getting some rest. Great start to this new adventure.

Atlanta to Chicago

What an incredible weekend trip we had! I am so happy, but it is not as fun being back in reality this week with exams and essays.

We flew with American Airlines, which I have not done in years. On the way to Chicago, I was super impressed as the airplane was new and the movies were free! On the way home we got an old plane without screens so it was not as fun.

I'll be posting more pictures and tips from Chicago during the week so be on the look out. HUGS
