"Why did you move to Stockholm? Where did you live in Finland?"
As many of you probably know I'm from Finland. Me and my husband moved to Stockholm in the spring. I've lived in Helsinki for almost all my life except for some years when we moved to Karis because my mom wanted to try the "small town life". Back then I didn't like it at all and we moved back to Helsinki pretty soon. But the funny thing is that these days I'm starting to appreciate small towns more and more. And I have a little secret dream of maybe someday live in a small town myself. In a pretty white house. I don't know why this changed? Maybe it's the age where you start valuate things differently and you appreciate things in a whole new way.
Anyways, we moved to Stockholm because we've both always wanted to live here at some point and my husband got a job he likes a lot here. There's a lot of pros and cons with living in Stockholm. The cons are mostly that I miss my mom and friends a lot. (And Hesburger's soy tortilla!!) It's only an hour flight but it's surprisingly hard to find time to go there.
I have a feeling I will move around pretty much for the coming 20 years. One reason to that is because both me and my husband are the most impatient people ever and we constantly plan new things. But sometimes I definitely wanna live in a smaller town again.
