It is the 24th of November and I’m in Nixa, Missouri in America.
Today, it’s Thanksgiving and during the Thanksgiving day, you are supposed to think about everything that you are thankful for and spend time with the ones that you love.

I’m here, with my host-family. I just made my cheesecake from scratch and now I’m going to work out before we start to eat.
I started to think about everything that I am thankful for…

I have my health, amazing friends, two families that loves me and supports me, school, good grades, and two beautiful homes.

My friends in Sweden… there’s no way that I can put into words how I miss you guys, how it tortures me that I miss your birthdays, parties, your gossiping times at Espresso House,  movie-nights, dinners, sleepovers, club-nights, troubles and heartbreaks. I want to be there for you every second of the day but we just have to make up for it when I come home again.

We have made so many memories and I know that we are going to create so many new ones too.
Late nights in the summer, laughing our butts off just because one of us gets our “blonde moments” from time to time.
Maybe someone just tripped or, one of us starts to tell the others about something that happened to them that is just SO funny that she begins to laugh so hard that it becomes impossible to explain the whole thing and therefore, everybody else bursts out into an uncontrollable laughter. My love for you guys…. is to infinity and beyond.
“Shall I compare thee to a summers day.
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May.
And summers lease hath all too short a date.
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines.
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d.
And every fair from fair sometimes declines.
By chance or natures changing course untrimm’d.
By thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair though owest.
Nor shall Death brag thou wanderst in his shade.
When in eternal lines to time though growest.
So long as men can breath, or eyes can see.
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.”
(I just totally wrote that from my mind. It’s a sonnet that I had to perform in
Acting class and I actually remember the whole thing, yay me! haha)

I shouldn’t even start to write about my family, they mean so much to me and they know that I love them.
I am so thankful for having a family like I do.
I was raised so well, I have the best siblings in the world that are always there to support me and help me when I need them.
And my parents…
My Mom is my best friend and she understands me in every situation.
She is my other half, she can complete my sentences and she knows how I think.
My Dad is always there for me. He is this huge part of my foundation that helps me through the hardest parts of my life.
I can’t write Love too many times.

My best friends here in America, YOU ARE COMING TO SWEDEN!
And it’ll be the best european experience EVER!
I am so extremely excited that you get to meet all of the amazing people that I know and that they get to meet you guys too.
You have helpt me so much during these last 4 months and you are the ones that is making this journey so special.
I wouldn’t be the person I am here, today, if it wasn’t for you.
All I can say is, FATE.

I am Thankful for everyone around me, every person, every thing.
I am living Now and that is all that counts. I will continue this life long journey and never stop believing in myself.
I have grown so much these last couple of months. I have learned to appreciate all of the things that most people take for granted. I have an open mind and I learn new things every day. I have fun, I laugh, I feel love and I have new goals that I am on my way to reach. I am changing into a better person for each day that passes by, and that is mostly because I learn from the people that I am around each and every day. You know who you are. You deserve more than the best of everything.
You belong to my Family.

    You’re such a beautiful person Hannie <3 I almost wish I didn't just read this because it only makes me miss you more!
    all of our hysterical summer-nights, and days, haha! Since we tend to get either very energetic, or very lazy, when we hang out, you can't even imagine the amount of energy I have boiled up to release on you when you get home! haha, love you and miss you <3
