Val is back from Norway!



Velcommen! I only learned a couple of of Norwegian words and "welcome" is one of them. We had a wonderful time and except for the fact that we were both so tired and sore from walking up and down those steep hills, we wished we could stay much longer. The country is beautiful. Breathtaking! And the tour we were on was filled with lovely, friendly folks who made our trip even more enjoyable.




Maybe I will eventually add a hunky Norwegian hero to one of my books but right now I'm still recovering. Our actual anniversary is today so we're continuing to celebrate with a quiet dinner out. My sister-in-law offered to throw us a party but we're not really party people and considered the trip to my father's homeland to be our official celebration. Besides, many of our friends are here in AR and family is spread all over the US. Getting them together in one place would not only be a logistic nightmare, it would be far too costly for all concerned.




I'm adding a couple of pics taken while we were traveling.




Oh, and back to the craft of writing! I came home to the news that I had sold another story to "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Matters". I think it's a hoot. My husband finds some of my family embarrassing. I guess that's why they bought the story!!!!




Blessings,


Valerie Hansen
