Marrying an American

England and Atlanta

"...he convinced me that America would be okay. "

"After I graduated from nursing school, I had a wonderful little apartment in the nursing complex in Copenhagen, close to parks, you could run, you could walk, you could go to the beach, you could go to the lake. And it was the...hundredth year of the CTC, the Cycling Touring Club of England. And it was in Harrogate up in Yorkshire, and that’s where I met my first husband, and he convinced me that America would be okay. Nursing would be portable, I thought. [Chuckles]. So...he proposed—well, actually I came to visit in 1978 in Atlanta, so it was very nice. One day it was nice, sunny, and then suddenly it was very cold."
