#atozchallenge Theme Reveal!
2014 is my 4th challenge, and 3rd as co-host. In 2011 I didn't have a clue and didn't have a theme, but muddled through and had a great time.
2012 I decided on "Postcards from Sweden" where I shared a picture, taught a word of Swedish, and included a childhood story that went along with the word. Had another great time, and a lot of people who read the whole series! Yeah!
2013 I decided why mess with a good thing, so I did "Adventures in America" where I told stories (and shared more embarrassing childhood pictures) about my first year as an immigrant to America. That proved to be popular as well. I mean, how many of you have spent 4 months in a body cast at age 9? People were curious.
Which brings us to 2014. I'm going Swedish again. Write what you know, they say! Besides, I'm proud of my heritage, and my homeland. Without further ado, my theme is:
"It's very Swedish..." I will be writing about cultural differences big and small. I'll share some very Swedish things I miss very much, and also talk about differences in attitudes and beliefs. It won't be all about kaviar och kaffee! (That's coffee for those who didn't do the 2012 language lessons. I figured you could figure out the caviar and "and").
Please join me in learning more about a unique culture. Yes, Hilary, I'll talk about fierce viking chicks big and small, might throw in a Swedish word or two. One thing you can count on: embarrassing photos. After all, that's become an A-Z tradition. No worries, Momarazzi took plenty of pictures...
I hope to see you around a lot in April! Now off to check out your themes.
