In early October my mom and I set off on our European adventure. A first for her and a treat for me. We started in Copenhagen - a truly beautiful city. We explored beautiful old churches, the waterfront neighborhood and stately old castles. We marveled and all the bicycles, ate at 7-11 too many times (don't ask) and tried to stay dry. In fact, our only complaint about Copenhagen was the fact that it rained nearly every day.

For me the highlight of the trip was celebrating with my friends from Rio as they were awarded the 2016 Olympics. Years ago, I remember watching the announcement that Salt Lake City would be hosting the Games. I thought then that it would be fun to be a volunteer, little did I know that I would find myself a part of the organizing committee or that someday I'd be involved in events around the world. All these years later to be able to celebrate with Rio as they got their turn was a once in a lifetime experience.
Please excuse the blurry photos - between my jumping up and down and their jumping up and down I didn't get a single clear photo.
Because the theme of our Copenhagen trip was rain, a little Patty Griffin feels appropriate.
