I can’t really believe it but today marks 3 years since I walked through customs at the airport in Melbourne to join Simon on our new adventure, a life together in Australia. I remember the day I left Sweden as if it was yesterday. The sadness of leaving friends and family mixed with the excitement of the unknown what was to come. It’s not always easy being an expat living far away from what used to be home (and in a way always will be). Sweden has a very special place in my heart and there are definitely things I miss about living there but most of all it’s the people I miss, my friends and family. That said though, Simon and I have built a very nice life for ourselves here in Australia and we are surrounded by lovely friends and family. You can’t have the cake and eat it too unfortunately so we’re happy with what we got, try to make the best out of the situation we’re in and look forward to what the future will bring us. 🙂
Simon and I celebrate 4 very eventful years together today. As every couple we’ve certainly have had our ups and downs but I’ve enjoyed our adventures and I’m very blessed and happy to have Simon in my life. During the 4 years we’ve had a long distance relationship with endless Skype sessions, we’ve travelled together and we’ve lived in both Sweden and in Australia. We’re ready to take on new adventures and embark on a new journey, as house owners. Exciting times ahead! Lap five of the roller coaster ride starts today so it’s time to buckle up and enjoy the ride! 🙂
Happy 2 year anniversary, Simon!
We’ve been through a lot during these two years both ups and downs and sometimes I just have to stop and reflect on what’s going on. If someone would have asked me 2.5 years ago about how I saw my future, this would not have been it. Never in a million years would my answer have been I think I’ll meet the love of my life during the next 6 months and I definitely wouldn’t have said that he would be an Aussie. But I did fall in love with Simon and everything has changed after that. I can’t at this stage say exactly what our future has in store for us and even if that sometimes frustrates me it’s also exciting. Lap three of the roller coaster ride starts today.
