Step back to December 2015, Christmas ...
Carl always makes sure that we open the "big" present from him last. My "big" present was actually a quite small, very light package ...
Inside the present was a folded paper, something printed out from the computer, it seemed. It took me a few seconds to read it and realize it was an application for a passport!
Carl was sending me on Justine's trip to Sweden!
One minute we're here in sunny California, loading up our luggage in a swanky rental car ...
Next minute, we're bundled up and starting one of many walks around the towns of Sweden!
Kaleigh and Andres live in a truly quaint little town just a bit out of Stockholm.
They were wonderfully welcoming to me!
Justine & Kaleigh have a special friendship that began their in the dorms their freshman year at San Jose State University.
