Hi, my name is Sandra, I am a Mexican girl who’s married to a Swedish boy and lives in Sweden. We’ve been married for almost 10 years and we just got our first kid a year and two months ago. His name is Daniel and he has come to rock our world and change our lives in most unimaginable ways.
A BIT OF BACKGROUND
We met about 17 years ago in College, we both played tennis for the same school SMSU We’ve always been a lot into sports, back then it was tennis, running, weights, and whatever else we were allowed to while still playing Tennis for the shool. We started dating almost straight away, after college I went back to Mexico and played for another school while working on an MBA. During this time I made lots of nice and interesting friends. During summers I met Håkan in Germany where we managed to play for the same club. Things got more serious and we decided to get married. Our first year of marriage we lived in Stockholm, quite a change for me. It was cold most of the year, and after a year, I left, I decided that it was no life for me. So I went back to Mexico and worked and lived there for a year until Håkan moved to New York and we decided to give it another try, this time on neutral ground. We lived in New York for 6 years together and we loved every minute of it. It was great! but not all dreams last forever, Håkan got transfered back to Stockholm and here we are, but this time Stockholm doesn’t seem as bad as the first time. Sweden has changed dramatically in the last 8 years, before it used to be very much into their own thing and culture, however this time I’ve noticed that they have globalized in many ways, specially mentality and living styles. Swedish people have been americanized, and in many good ways, however not all good comes alone, there has also been an increase in crime and other negative things, but all in all I think it’s a very good place to live and raise a family. My only complaint is "THE WINTER" what is up with that????? how can it be so DARK???? That I believe will be the last thing I’ll get used to.
