WOW 2015 has come so fast. I feel like it was yesterday my family and I moved from Hawaii to Sweden. It has just been three years since we moved and I feel like so much has happened. I have grown in so many ways physically (two pregnancies) , emotionally, and spiritually. What a journey it has been. I will not say it has been easy because let me tell you it hasn’t, its been hard, frustrating, annoying but over all its has been amazing. I have learned to love it here. Bloom where you are planted… right! There is no point in making your self unhappy just because its difficult for you. So I choose joy! I have learned to love this country, the people, the culture and so much more.
Oh my gosh the language, please shoot me now. I just want to understand everything and speak it well. In time, in time. It doesn’t help as soon as we got here I became pregnant with our Coco Joy and then 9 months after having her I became pregnant again with little Majken. Yes I know so soon. It is cold here alright! HAHAH My son Le’i has learned the language so fast and speaks so well (he was 4.5 when we moved here). I am so jealous how well he was able to pick it up. Such a proud mama.
Honestly I haven’t been able to do as much as I hoped since moving to Sweden. Having babies and moving to a new country is what we call huge culture change. I wouldn’t change it for the world. I do wish I would have been able to study Swedish a bit more but they don’t allow you to bring babies to class :). I haven’t been the best to study at home (people who finally get there kids to sleep and then study are saints…really). I can’t wait to explore Sweden now that I feel like I don’t have new borns or feel like a whale. If you have any tips on places to see or must do let me know.
So follow us for funny stories, cute kid pictures, adventures of having a little farm, learning how to cook, how to teach my children and how they teach me. Living life in Sweden. Random inspirations, home decor, styling and well my favorite of all traveling. I am going to state this now we are anything but normal.
Anyways this is not what I thought my first blog post was going to be about, but its my journal and I guess this just might be how it goes. I am not really sure how this blog is going to go. I don’t have a set plan. I just want it to be a journal about our life, the things I love and well what I feel like writing. I really want to commit to writing as much as I can. If no one reads this great and if people do welcome to our little spot on the web. Leave a comment so I can peek into your little space. Would love to make friends here.
Cheers to all that lies ahead. Choose JOY, Choose HAPPINESS as it will make your life so much better. The grass is greener where you water it.
