The first question people ask is, “Sweden!? Why Sweden?” Well, my husband lives in Sweden and home is where the heart is! “He lives in Sweden!? But how did you meet?” No, we didn’t meet through a chance meeting while he was traveling for work, we met online. “Oh, one of those dating websites??” No, we had a mutual interest. This is usually met with a confused expression. We met through an online game where we learned about each other and fell in love. He came to New York City and I went to Sweden. We got married and I moved to Sweden instead of him moving to New York. Where will it lead? How long will you live there? All we know is we are here now and I have to learn how to become a Swedish Wife.
I am learning Swedish language, culture and history. Traditions and nuances. Food and decor. I am learning to be Swedish while learning to be a wife. While learning to live (very far) away from home for the first time. I am keeping track of my progress, my experiences, my interactions. I am sharing my thoughts, my solutions, my difficulties, my conquests and the things I learn along the way.
I hope to reach out and help out. To find people who are curious and interested. My journey is one of many! Its a new life on every level and I intend on making the best of it!
