On our way back to Umeå, we stopped at Tord and Susanne's house; they are old friends of the family and fellow missionaries in Asia. They have just recently bought a house here in Sweden, and it is the cutest thing ever with its wood burning stove and narrow stairway. It's a dollhouse.
This picture greeted me the moment I stepped inside.
It is still in the process of renovation--one wall is white, one brown--but it already has that snug feeling to it.
We had tea and buns and sandwiches in the warm kitchen, a short respite before our drive home.
