I love the boy's clothes and shoes. I have Finnish and a tiny touch of Swedish in my heritage. I sometimes wonder what it would be like to live in that kind of climate. My son and I both love cold weather, and cold weather clothing, but perhaps for us, it's the novelty that appeals the most. Thanks for posting this detail!
