Home sweet home. 🎄 And yes, that is Santa that Argos has chosen to carry around.

When I landed in Copenhagen two weeks ago, the immigration officer stamped my American Passport and said “welcome home”. The last two weeks I have traveled across the country, ate and drank more than I should, hugged 100s of complete strangers, laughed over beers with great friends, talked politics and hope in front of hundreds of people, biked soaking wet through the streets of Copenhagen, walked alone in the rain along the sea and through the Christmas Markets. I just passed through immigration again, and the officer said “Leaving us again? We hope you come back soon.” Dear Denmark, you sure know how to put a smile on my face. And you better believe we will be back soon. ❤️🇺🇸🇩🇰

Part of me will never believe this is real.

In the summer, these Copenhagen docks are full of Danes enjoying the sights and the sounds of the harbor and the water is so clean - even in the middle of the city - everyone swims. On this cold and windy December day, I left my swim trunks in my hotel room (I’m not that much of a Viking yet) but can’t help but sit and enjoy the beauty of this city. There is not much sun this time of year but I will soak up every moment I get.

Copenhagen. Even on a cold, windy December day you make me feel like I can touch the sun. ❤️

Well, today I walked through the airport on my way to Aalborg and found a book about me between one about the Crown Prince of Denmark and one written by Michelle Obama. 😳. Not sure I could have ever imagined I’d be sharing such company. Continue to be so humbled and grateful. 📚 🙏 🇩🇰

Oh sweet Argos - You don’t complain. A simple scratch behind the ears is all you ask for. On the hardest days you make me smile like no person can. Seven years ago today the world got just a little bit sweeter. Happy birthday wonderful boy. 🎁 🎂 🐶

Argos turns seven next week. He’s had seven homes in those seven years. This one is going to last a while. Home sweet home.
