Living far away from family and friends means not seeing them often enough. That is just sort of part of the deal and you learn to live with that fact, nevertheless I feel like I’ve missed out a little on my two lovely nieces growing up – especially the youngest one who was born during my travelling-phase and who was only 12 when we left for Germany. During our last visit to Sweden in March, I was therefore thrilled to meet up with her and her boyfriend who I hadn’t yet met but heard only good things about. And even if we couldn’t spend loads of time together I am happy to have had the opportunity not only to hug my niece but also to see her so happy and self-confident. Emelie, keep on being you, with everything that it includes, don’t ever let anyone tell you that that isn’t good enough. And Jimmie, thank you for putting a smile on her face and in her eyes – I wish you both loads of love and happiness!
