the photo above was taken on new year’s eve in 2009. just 5 days after lina and i had gotten married. we were in uppsala celebrating, visiting lina’s brother, his girlfriend (now wife), and the rest of the “gang”. we haven’t been in uppsala for new year’s since then, so i thought it’d be a great little throwback to share the photo, as we will be celebrating with the same people (and in uppsala, of course) tonight. how fun is that?!

and, to think, that we now live here. we’ve just completed our first year in this city. and i have absolutely fallen in love with it. how freaking crazy is life?! never in a million years did i really think that we’d be living here, and that, after 6years, welcome in a new year, with the same “gang”, and even more in love than the newlyweds that we were on that new year’s eve 6 years ago.

so, here’s a little peek into what this first year in uppsala has looked like. a chronicle of my everyday life + those moments that have become extra special to me. and, oh, how i consider myself blessed and so very grateful.
