Guess what?! I have gotten a job! And not only a whatever job, it’s as a graphic designer!

Guess what again?! It’s in Uppsala, Sweden!


My wife, our cat, and I are, therefore, moving back to Sweden in less than two months. This is, of course, a bittersweet situation where I’m over-the-top excited to work within the branch of what I’ve been studying, but also to be close to my/our Swedish/European friends and family. On the other hand, we’re truly sad about leaving the States, Asheville, North Carolina and all American friends and family here…


The good part, though, is that all my benefits at work will allow us to go to the States every now and then! So now, we’re in the middle of planning a big moving out party, contacting moving companies – geting quotes from them, organizing our things, finding somewhere to live in Uppsala…and the list continues.

But before all of that craziness starts for real, we’re going to celebrate a really cozy Thanksgiving next week, prepare for the Christmas Holiday, and my parents are coming in less than a month to stay with us for some weeks. We’re going to have a cozy Swedish Christmas Eve celebration (Swedish tradition to celebrate on the 24th) and of course an American Christmas Day celebration. The perk of being in an international relationship ♥.

So I guess it will be mix of blogposts here from now on – all the catching up posts I’m doing right now from fall happenings, our preparations/updates in the process of moving, end of school year posts, and Holiday celebration posts.

Hope you’ll tag along!
