bye usa and hey sweden.

October 31, 2009

The trees are changing color big time here which means that time is running and I have to leave the States (for this time). I can’t find words to describe how sad I am leaving my love here. At the same time I’m glad to see friends and family in Sweden. It’s all mixed. My soul is crying today and I’m letting myself feel that way. I belong together with my love and it’s unfair that the laws are separating us.

The departure from NC is tomorrow morning (Sunday) and I will arrive in Sweden early Monday morning.
So no updates until then..

my parents are here..

October 27, 2009

..and we started the trip to visit Raleigh. Did some shopping and then, the next day, went to atlantic beach = warm weather and sun, me like. A few pics from the first days for my parents here in NC:

My parents brought some candy = Lina is happy! 

Some shopping in Raleigh.

We went out on the boat the first evening at the beach.

They (probably the people who wanted to take a part of it) had a kite competition the next day. We checked it out.

A big wave came and we were in shock..hee hee.

Still in shock or trying to pose?

it’s a crazy thursday

October 22, 2009

Yes, it feels like it’s a mix of everything today. Going to a funeral and then later on we’re heading to Charlotte and the airport to pick up my parents! They’ve been to NYC for some days and are now gonna spend a week here in North Carolina. Woo hoo, I’m excited to show them around here!

We’re tonight heading to Raleigh and staying over the night. Perhaps gonna visit The State Fair during Friday and for sure some shopping at the big mall close to the hotel. YAY. I have, as you’ve seen (link link), a list of things I want to buy before I’m leaving the States. We’ll spend the weekend at the beach house and will head back to Asheville on Sunday for some days here. Yep, that’s how the plans are now.

Now: clean the apartment, finish the packing and take a shower.

By the way! The Swedish Lutheran Church voted today YES for homosexual people to get married in the church! Go Sweden!

iphone cases

October 21, 2009

Since I’ve ordered an iPhone..I’ve been looking around to see what kind of case I would like to have.
These are my favorite, so far.

starbucks → sweden

October 21, 2009

Oh, YES! I have waited for such a long time. Starbucks is coming to Sweden and it’s gonna be located at Arlanda (the airport in Stockholm). I’m so happy and for the first time it’s actually really good that I’m hanging out at the airport alot nowadays. Hee hee. Gonna force my dad who works at the airport every now and then to bring some home too. To read some about it (link) – It’s in Swedish. I’m excited!

nick and norah’s infinite playlist

October 19, 2009

My cousin Julia wrote about the movie on her blog (link) in February and my love and I have wanted to see it since then. Well, we’ve seen the movie several times in different stores but never ended to buy it until the other day. It was so cheap and we couldn’t let it be this time! We bought it watched it yesterday and we loved it! So for those who haven’t seen it, it’s a good one and I recommend it warmly. Info about it at here and pic from the same website.
