A quarter of a century....

Written on my birthday, 28th of July 2014.

Today I turn 25 years old. That’s a quarter of a century, makes a girl think!

It’s scary thinking how fast my early twenties have gone, I don’t even know what I’ve done all that time. I moved away from home and I’ve been studying opera for 4 years… now I’m waiting to start studying languages at the university of Stockholm. I’m just studying and studying, but when will I ever be done? In many ways I thought I'd be somewhere else now, but I am happy to be just where I am!

I am grateful! There are so many young people in the world that never make it to this age and do not have the opportunities that I have been given in my life. I feel truly lucky to have lived this long and come this far in life. I only have gratitude towards life. I’m alive and that is more than enough!

Thank you to my family and all my amazing friends! Without each of you I would not be the same person I am today. Unfortunately all my favorite people a scattered around the world, but here are some pictures of the friends I got to celebrate with!
These people bring so much joy and laughter into my life and we take care of each other! They are the best girls (and boy!) to trash men with and laugh at and with! Love you girls! And Mr. Photographer (not pictured!) you are amazing, thank you for taking these pictures!!!!!
They will forever be beautiful memories of my 25th birthday!

So much love to you all!
