(photo: the cake I made)
Did I really promise you a travel tale today? Where did I have my thoughts?????
Okay, I am working on one, from Sacred Bath, but I need more time to finish it.
I am back in Norway. Came back around midnight Friday night to a busy house with guests and preparations. Saturday was my niece Mathilde´s confirmation, and after a few hours sleep I was up to iron the bunad linen shirt, to write the speech Terje and I wanted to give Mathilde, and to make a marzipan cake.
Brief moment of panic when my iron made black spots on one of the shirts, dear old neighbour saved me, and all of a sudden we found ourselves in Havstein church, celebrating Mathilde and a few other youths.
A beautiful service, with words of love and importance to the congregation.
A bouquet of freshly blooming youths.
Then home to my brother´s house for a party. Filling their house to the brim with people, food, flowers, gifts, tales, laughter and love.
And at some time photos, photos and more photos.
Can you see that Mathilse has the same type of bunad as I have? She has even inherited my first shirt.
Three generations of beautiful women.
Confirmant, parents and witnesses.
and more photographers.
Thank you Mathilde, Torodd and kristin for a wonderful day.
