You get the picture.

To be honest this is just really exciting to me. Not only do I actually have Swedish heritage, but my Swedish ancestors immigrated only 116-ish years ago! Which sounds like a LOT of years, but let me tell you, I have ancestors who were some of the first people in this country so this was almost refreshing to discover ;)
So there you have it - my Swedish roots, and deep they are! In fact I still have distant relatives in Sweden. We all know I love to travel...so maybe I'll visit someday? Here's hoping!
