as you can see in the title, I have some news to share with you. You may already know this if you follow me on twitter but I thought I'd tell you in little more detail. Myself and Anna have bought a flat and we are moving to Sweden!! For the past year we've been living together with Anna's family and it has been amazing but we're just so ready to move out and start our own lives independently.
Most of you are probably wondering why we are moving to Sweden rather than staying in England and we have numerous reasons for that which I thought I'd share with you to hopefully give you a little bit more understanding of the whole situation.
First of all, for those of you who aren't aware, I was born and raised in Sweden. I lived there my whole life up until I moved in with Anna and her family here in England which was in May 2015.
I've absolutely adored living in this country; I got a job as soon as I got here which was as a play worker at a breakfast club for children. It was an amazing job and I really loved it, I've worked there throughout this whole year. During this year we have been going back to Sweden whenever we've had time off work to spend time with my family and whenever we've gone, Anna's felt as if she's been home and been forming a very close relationship with my family and the country. She's asked me numerous times ''why don't we just move to Sweden?'' because she's seen how high the standard of living is and how much more you get out of your money. I always said no because I simply didn't want to give up on living here in England, also give up on my dream of living abroad. But I've also realised that my dreams have changed a tad. I of course still want to travel and experience the world but the main dream I have right now is a future for us; a future where we're in a good place to settle down and raise a family and the best place for us to do that is in Sweden because we can now already afford getting a big enough flat, our own personal space and we can just start building from there. We obviously don't want a family right now at this point in our lives but we do know that we want it in the future. Our plan right now is to settle down and to properly build our lives together as a couple, get good jobs, save up money and go travel on holidays the day we can afford that. I feel like I'm rambling quite a lot but this is basically it, we're starting this new adventure and chapter in our lives together and we couldn't be more excited. We're basically all set to go as we've already gone through most of the process of buying our own place. We managed to do that with help from Anna's family and a little help from my dad and my grandparents who kindly went and actually looked at the flats we were interested in as we couldn't physically be there ourselves. But we found one (see the three photos i this post), went for it and luckily got it.
We're going to Sweden on holiday first on the 28th of July - the 15th of August and after that we're going to Scotland for a few days and then we're officially moving to Sweden on the 30th of August.
We just can't wait for this new chapter in our life and to finally properly build our lives together independently. We also cannot wait to document this whole journey through vlogs and blog posts for you guys but also for us to look back on as that's mainly the reason of us making videos on youtube. you should also follow Anna's blog as she'll be posting a lot about our future plans as well (but you should also follow her because she's the most beautiful human on earth and also the love of my life) @annasxphia
But yeah, I just thought I'd share it with you guys and I hope you're as excited as we are.
