It's time to say good bye and end this blog. My year as an Au Pair is over, and it's now time to start a new chapter. This was the best year of my life so far and I'm so thankful for all the people I met and got to know, and for everything that I go to experience. Looking back and thinking of my year just makes me smile. If there would be one word for this whole experience i would be happiness. So freaking much hapiness. Of course there was ups and down but overall it was a freaking amazing year that I'll never ever forget. The best part is hard to say. But becoming a part of my host family's family and making very special and life long friends is my top 2. The worst part of the whole year was leaving. And that says a lot. The fact that it was so hard leaving only means that I had somehing amazing and beautiful there. I'm so happy I made the desison to become an Au Pair and I'm so proud of myself for completing the year. I made it!

Coming home was a mix of emotions. SO SO SO happy to see everyone again. Although I just got to see them for a week. Before it was time to move to Västerås which is the city where I'm going to study Public Health for 3 years. I am very excited to start a new life here and to start studying. But it's a big change. Going from the Au Pair life and being away from home and then becoming a student 5 hours from all my family and friend is no going to be easy. But easy is not what I want.I made this desison for me. And I know it will be great! And I know that there's a million other adventures out there!! SO I'm very excited to see what will happen next!


THANK YOU for reading my blog! It's been a lot of fun!

The day finally came. The day I came back to Sweden! My sisters very nice friend came to pick me up in Copenhagen, and then we drove back to my home town Halmstad. And it was sooooo weird arriving here. It felt like it was 10 years ago since I was here last time, and the same time it felt like I never left. It was a very strange feeling. My favorite moment was arriving at the parking lot by my house. My mom came running out to hug me, and I started crying! To hug her was the best feeling ever! And then the exact same thing happened when I saw my brother and sister. I have missed them so much. So to finally be home with them feels amazing.

The days have just been flying by. Meeting and catching up with friends, visiting my dads house, and preparing for my move to Västerås, is what my days have been filled with. I feel like I m in an emotional roller coaster. I miss Seattle, Im happy to be home, and excited to move.

It will take some time to adapt, to this new life, not living the easy and fancy au pair life anymore hahah. But it will be alright. Now a new chapter starts.

Yosemite National Park (very har to pronounce, right Linda?haha) was one of my favortie stops on our tour. it's a beautiful place, the nature is something I've never seen before, I just loved it! To just stand and look out on these beautiful views gives me a special feeling that I just love. We also stopped at an amazing lake, but I didn't take any photos of it. I have to see if someone else took a photo of it, casue it was soooooo beautiful!

Death Valley

Oh my godness! I have never experienced that much heat before as I did in Death Valley. Craaazyy to be in the middle of the desert! In 41 degrees!

I thought I'd write and post some pictures from the tour I went on last week!

We started off in San Fransisco, I was there 9 years ago so it was super cool to be back. We got to see Golden Gate bridge, Lombard street, Pier 39 an the Painted ladies. We didn't spend to much time there but I do like San Fransisco a lot!

Last Friday was one of the saddest days ever. I had to leave Seattle. It was so tough. I love Seattle. I love all my friends I made there. And I love my host family so much!

Before I got dropped off to the airport I went to my little host girls summer camp where they preformed a show. It was soo cute, and when it was over I started crying, of course hahaha. I love those two little girls more than I thought was possible. They will always have a special in my heart. Hugging them goodbye was so sad.

When I hugged my wonderful host parents goodbye. I started crying some more, they have been so awesome this whole year, and they mean super much to me.
I go dropped off at the airport and I met Linda and Patty there. Patty and I just cried and cried. I think what is the hardest is that it will never be the same again, we are leaving this amazing life we created here behind, and it sucks, it really really sucks. At the same time it's something beautiful. The fact that is so hard to leave just means we had a wonderful adventure together. And I am very thankful for that. And it's not the last time I see all these fantastic people, I will see them again, I am 100 % sure.

Becoming an au pair is the best decision I ever made..

I have been thinking to blog for a long time, but it just didn't happen, sorry for that.

Right now I'm in Santa Monica with all the girls that was on the tour. We had an amazing tour week! Lots and lots of driving but we got to see so many beautiful places. Here is all the places we got to see this week:

- San Fransisco

- Yosemite National Park

- Death Valley National Park

- Las Vegas

- Grand Canyon

-Route 66

- Lake Havasu

-Los Angeles

It went by crazy fast and I had so much fun! Awesome girls and awesome tour guide! Patty, Rosa, Vera and I will spend another 3 days here in Santa Monica before it's time to go back home. We had to say goodbye to our Swedish gangster Lindis yesterday which was super hard. I wish I didn't have to say all these goodbyes, it's no fun. Now I will enjoy my last days together with Patty Pooh and Rosita and then on TuesdayI will beon the plane back to Sweden! Craaaaazy, but I'm excited, can't wait to hug everyone I have missed so so much!
