Stockholm here we come!

There are a lot of you guys who wonder what kind of visa we are on in order to live in New York. In 2008 I was here on a journalism visa (we lived here for 6 months to see if we enjoyed living here with the kids). I used to work as a journalist for several Swedish magazines and Micke was on “paternity leave” for Caprice (in Sweden mother and father both receive maternity leave). After that, we have been here on business visas.
But then the most amazing thing happened: We WON Green Cards on the lottery that America has every year! I had completely forgot that I’ve been paying to be in this lottery for the last five years, so GUESS who was surprised when a woman called me last may and said “Congratulations, you’ve won the Green Card Lottery!!”. I thought it was a really bad prank. But no, it was true. We had won – the whole family!!

So today we are going to Stockholm for doctor appointments (mandatory) and also for an interview at the American Embassy. I am so incredibly happy for this since I’ve always felt at home in the USA! It’s going to be a lot easier for us to have greencards since we won’t have to renew our visas. And it’s going to be so much fun to go to Stockholm to meet some friends and family.

Of course, I am not traveling without my bags. You can order your own travel bags here: www.bag-all.com
