Overdue Thanks

Our first week in Norway was hosted by my grandmother's second cousin, Paula Oen. She was an incredibly generous and energetic guide to the greater Bergen area and the lovely island of Osteroy. From giving up her own bed to leading us on scenic mountain hikes to thoughtfully preparing three meals a day, she was truly self-sacrificing and we are very grateful. Cheers to Paula!

Paula also happens to be a wonderful artist and an art historian. She is seen above with the sign for the Osteroy Museum which she designed and hand-painted.
