Dear Reader,


Over the past few weeks, I have been highlighting the many contributions that various Scandinavians and Scandinavian-Americans have made throughout history. There have been Scandinavian inventors, musicians, Nordic fare, women in history and the creative minds behind Scandinavian design. There are just too many to choose from!  Each time I learn something new, and pass it on to you, it’s a big win in my book!




Since my journey began, I have learned so much about Scandinavian and American culture and history, my own heritage, and the legacy of The Danish Home of Chicago. It has truly been en eye-opening experience, to say the least! How would I have known that finding the old chest in a Chicago area antique store over three years ago would lead me to all that I have discovered?


You have been a part of this wonderful journey with me, and I want to show my gratitude to you for that. Each week you tune in, read along and share in this experience. I want to thank you for your continued readership and support!




I would like to invite you to truly be a part of this collaborative process by participating in a brief survey so that I can tailor my posts based on your interests.
