A year ago Mr. H and I loaded up all of our stuff and headed for the airport.
It is hard to put into words what this past year living in Sweden has been but I know for sure it has been the biggest and rewarding challenge thus far in my life.
Leaving all that you have known and worked at behind for a giant unknown is not something that can be put in neat little columns for me.
The rewards of finding who you are as an adult and how amazing your marriage is when pushed to the limits is also not easy to wax on about for me.
I was reading what I wrote last June and am happy that much of the anxiety of leaving home is gone but now replaced with normal day to day life issues like where will we live in August….. o what that is not normal every day life worries either but after this last year it is a worry I can conquer head on.
This past year we have celebrated my 26th birthday, our one year wedding anniversary, Mr. H’s 27th birthday alongside a two person Thanksgiving, a Swedish and American style Christmas, an Easter with family from home, and so many other little things that make life the great joy it is.
Once again I am not sure what this next year will hold but I am looking bravely to the future with Mr. H at my side that we will come out happy and contented once again.
