Happy 4th of July!

Happy July 4th everyone!

Before we start the celebrations, here’s a quick update on some of the things we’ve been up to these last few weeks. We’ve just returned from a trip to Turku, Finland! I was there for a conference, while Lauren had a presentation with some of her collaborators over there. We also managed to fit some sightseeing into our busy schedules. It’s easy to get a lot done in a day when it never gets dark!

We explored Turku’s rich history, visiting both the Turku Castle and the Cathedral of Turku. On our last night we explored a little bit of the nightlife, visiting the floating bars on the Aura River and enjoying some seriously good seafood.

We are off to enjoy the holiday now visiting friends and grilling!
