Meeting Óskar!

We just got back from a long weekend in Stockholm. As Martin's mom said - it felt like Christmas. It was one of those rare moments where nearly everyone was there. The reason for the sudden trip was the recent arrival of our newest nephew Óskar Fulvio, born in Iceland on June 16th. It was so much fun to meet the little guy and see Magnus and Olof as parents. I first met Magnus when he was 14...

All the cousins!
We are planning to all meet again next summer in Iceland for Magnus and Olof's wedding. It's difficult to coordinate these global meetings, especially with little ones in tow. And now we have both sides of the family spread out across the globe. Of course, it's also a great way to see new places, and a good excuse to plan ahead for meet ups in exciting places all over the globe.

So we meet again...

Off on a whirlwind summer European adventure, Nicole, Thabele, and Hanna Mazwi passed through Düsseldorf for a few days. I hadn't seen them since our trip to Mozambique last summer (and let's be honest, I had never met Nicole or Hanna before that!) so it was a great reunion and so fun to see how much the kids had changed and grown.

Looking forward to seeing them again soon somewhere in the world!
