On my mom’s side of the family I am the first to marry outside of the Lutheran religion and even worse than that- he isn’t Norwegian! Thankfully Tim has put in his time and eaten enough lefse and butter to be considered an honorary Norwegian. It was hard work, but he managed to to survive. He is a better (albeit slightly more artery clogged) man for it.
I have drank Guinness in the Gravity Bar at the top of the Guinness factory in Ireland and I have participated in a St. Patty’s day fun run.
