In homage to Sweden...

The country of Sweden is truly fascinating. I have discovered recently that this small, Scandinavian counrty has much to offer. The first are Volvos. They are always the safest cars and they are really nice looking also. I always tell Brian that's what I want as my "mom" car one day. Next is the phenomenon that is Ikea. Atlanta just got one and I went a couple of weeks ago. There are hardly any words for how amazing this "Walmart of Europe" is.

This weekend I discovered a little cracker called "Wasa." Also Swedish. No trans-fats in the things and cheese is way better on them than your ordinary Ritz. I heard from a friend that the store "H&M" is also a Swedish design, but I don't know that for a fact. It would make sense since it's an awesome place that is reasonably priced, but I don't want to give credit where it's not due.

Anyway, if you know any other cool things about what is rapidly becoming my favorite Scandinavian country, let me know.

Sweden is a very beautiful country . . . if you can afford the high taxes and socialist government. With 30% of its population on welfare (because you make more on welfare there than in typical minimum wage jobs), we could probably live comfortably amongst the beautiful landscape.

Swedish cheese ROCKS. Kelli, there's a store up in the North GA mountains, just outside of Helen, that sells Scandinavian food/beverages/blankets, etc. Let's take a road trip some Saturday this fall! It's a beautiful place to be when the leaves are changing.
