Forward 6 years and I get married to one of my best friends from this year in California and he moves to Norway to live with me there.
Forward another 3 years and our daughter Isabel was born in 2004. Isabel is my little ballerina and loves to dance, sing, read and go on adventures all over the place. She goes to an ordinary American public elementary school and a few days a week she also takes a Norwegian class online for a couple of hours.
In 2006 I finally finished college with a Teaching degree in Comparative Religion. That is when we decided to sell our house and move all the way to the Pacific Northwest where my husbands family now live. And I started a new adventure as a stay at home mom and last year also a blogger.
In 2009 we added little Sofie to the family. Sofie is my little copy. She looks so much like me that it is almost scary and now she is also adding my mannerisms and sounds that I make. She loves to play and go for walks. She is also the one with a health issue. She was born without one antibody called IGG4 and has Neutropenia both which makes her very susceptible to upper airway infections.
Last year my husband and I decided that we want to move back to Norway. There are many reasons for this and the main one is family. I have a huge family back home and we are all very close. There is also the facts of me being able to finally work as a teacher, 4 weeks of vacation time every summer for everyone, and better regulated work days. So now we have started getting ready for our big move.
