Enjoy Not Knowing

Just another American living in Sweden

I was once asked, while sipping wine in the warm Spanish evening, how I knew I had found the one.

A smile made its way across my face, as I replied:

It’s like I’ve found this person. I am hers, and she I mine. And everything else in the world, all the noise, it will settle down. It will resolve. There’s no need to think or worry about that. Because, forever, there will be us.

there will be us

Looking back on that night, first, I think that was a damn good answer. Second, I think what I have found is peace. In this person I have now been with for five years. I have found my peace, my missing piece. Happy fifth anniversary dear.

four years the first

November first was our fourth anniversary. To celebrate Evelina and I went to Linköping for the weekend. We saw the men’s team play against Växjö and the women’s team play against HV71. On Saturday, after checking in to the hotel, and enjoying the view, we walked over to the rink for the first game.

In the morning we ate Scandic breakfast. For all those unfortunate enough to have not yet experienced this, the breakfast is a delectable buffet including everything you could possibly want for breakfast. Don’t trust me though, come to Sweden at your earliest convenience and check it out for yourself.

We walked around the river by our old apartment, catching the opening day of vinter ljus (Winter Lights). An annual event in Linköping where artists design works with light. A clever way to light up the incredibly dark Swedish winter.
