Sweden

I went to bed so excited last night. My mind was flowing with ideas of what I could write about on here so I grabbed a notebook and jotted everything down. There are so many things I want to write about today and so many pictures I want to post. I couldn't decide what to post; my pictures from Germany or Sweden, or from when I took Sheldon (my bunny) outside today?? Should I tell things about my life?? I just don't know!

So, I think I will tell you about my trip to Sweden (or two trips). The summer of 2007 and 2008 my aunt Nicole and uncle Jochen invited me to Sweden (where they were living) to nanny for them. They have a son named M who was born in late 2006. They lived just a few blocks away from the beach and it was always deserted there! Their neighborhood was full of trees with gravel roads (it looked like a state park) and you couldn't see the neighbors. They lived in a beautiful house with a wonderful backyard to play in all summer! My best friend was in Denmark at the same time that I was in Sweden so we met up in Copenhagen and had a really good time!

A year later, I went back to help out again. M kept growing and we had even more fun that summer. We flew to Stockholm for a weekend and drove to Germany to buy some wine (because the wine is a lot cheaper in Germany, and it tastes better).


I'll do a post soon with photos from Germany this past summer.

wonderful photos! I have photoshop elements, but can barely use it..need to learn...

what a great opportunity you have, getting to travel to Sweden and Germany. Soak it all up! When I was highschool/college age, I did not realize what opportunities I had, if I just looked for them, and what freedom I could have had to travel/have adventures/take interesting jobs/go to school in interesting places...
Enjoy this stage of your life, and take lots of photos!!

Thanks! I really appreciate it! I've been thinking about getting photoshop or something like it but I would have no idea how to use it, and I'm not sure I would have the patience to sit down and learn how.

Hi, I found your blog through Kelly's Korner! A trip to Sweden sounds so exciting! I live in PA and pretty much the farthest I ever go is New Jersey! Nowhere near as exciting as Sweden! And great pics. I use Picnik too. I gave photoshop a try, but it was really complicated!

Wow I love your last beach picture! I would love to travel but only place I've been is Canada and that's even gotten harder since I was there last. Can't wait to read more!
