Hi, I'm Jesslyn. I'm from the wonderful sunshine state of Florida. My parents live in Colorado and I have a sister who lives in Harrisburg PA. Living so far apart can be difficult, but I am forever grateful for their endless love and support.
Oddly enough, Andreas and I met on a cruise I planned to go on with an ex-boyfriend. About a month before the cruise I became single and was stuck with two tickets for a seven night cruise. Luckily one of my good friends was able to come with me and we were randomly seated at the same dinner table as Andreas and his friend. After the cruise we kept in touch daily and he came to visit me about three months later. After a year, another visit to the States, and a visit to Sweden, Andreas came to live with me in Florida for six months. This was a way for us to spend more time together to see if we wanted to pursue our relationship and possibly move permanently. Clearly the answer was yes!
We decided I would move to Sweden due to my degree in Hospitality Management and experience in hotels/tourism being something I could do anywhere. Andreas was studying to become a police officer and could only do so in Sweden. We also felt like the social benefits Sweden has to offer outweigh those of the States. A fairy tale from the start, we feel so lucky to have found one another!
