He returned

Yesterday our son came back after a three months' cycling tour through Europe. He and his friend cycled 4000 km through France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Danmark and Sweden. Yesterday morning they flew back from Stockholm. You may know what mother hearts are like - they are just happy and grateful when the kids are back safely and happy!

To give Moritz a warm welcome I sew a flag line and as he had turned 20 a few days ago, it was also a bit for his birthday. Of course we shall celebrate at a alter stage.

The white platter is a present he brought me.  It's from iittala!

The plastic bag was torn after the flight. I have a project with it and hope to realize it soon!

I hope you are as happy as I am!

  1. Dear Christa
    I understand the happiness that your son turned back safe. I think your son is happy and satisfied with this around. You would have to say so much!! His gift is wonderful!
    Have a smiling day

  2. So nice to have him home again, and what great gifts you received. Have a nice day.


  3. What a warm welcome!

  4. How lovely he is home. It is always reassuring when they arrive back safe and sound.

  5. So glad your son is home! My boys are back now too. I'm not sure I would have been able to handle 3 months! Guess I better get used to the idea though because Jesse says he is leaving again very soon. I'm not even used to him being home yet!

  6. Hihi Christa,
    so sind wir Mama´s eben, können nicht aus unsere Haut ;-)
    Aber ich kann deine Freude sehr gut verstehen.
    Nächste Woche sind wir in Düsseldorf, um unseren ältesten Sohn zu besuchen!

  7. It must have been wonderful to have him home after such a time. What an achievement cycling that far. I expect he has so many adventures to tell you too. I am always happier when both of mine are here with us!

  8. Waw, that is brave such a trip with a bicycle. Respect.


  9. What an exciting trip--you must be proud and happy to have him home. The flag is lovely.
