So "why Sweden" is a good question.
I was there for a couple of weeks in the summer of 04' as a high schooler. I did nothing all day long, hung out with my Swedish friends, drank beer, BBQ'd and watched soccer. It was the good life. So now that is my view of Sweden. I imagine myself sitting about doing these things, all day long. Which I really know is not the reality, but it's nice to imagine!
After those beautiful couple of weeks, I really fell in love with everything about Sweden, maybe a little bit of an unatural unhealthy love. Regardless, I actually fell in love with something real, and that would love me back, and that would be Fredrik. He's the best Swedish thing I know (aside from Swedish fish)!
After choosing to partake in a ridiculously long distance relationship (which is the healthiest relationship I've ever been in!) I thought, "hmmm, one of us is going to have to take action to at least be in the same...continent as each other". So I started researching being an Au Pair in Sweden and found the perfect family! And best of all, they live 30ish miles from Göteborg! So I applied for the visa, got it, bought my ticket, and here we go! July 31st!
So that's why Sweden. I didn't really pick it, it just sort of...came to me. And now, I'm the luckiest girl I know!
