Dear everyone at eHarmony.com! January 1, 2007 my husband and I celebrated our 6 month wedding anniversary, and we have you to thank for that! We met for the first time in Oslo, Norway. As I walked towards him and saw his beautiful smile I was completely lost in love. We spent a wonderful, but short, weekend together. With my husband being from Sweden and myself from Norway we were practically neighbors compared to some of the other people we were matched with, but even so, too far away for us to see each other on a regular basis. We soon discovered that 2 weeks was the absolute maximum time we could stay apart, so February 5, 2006 I asked him to marry me. To my eternal joy he said yes. Planning a wedding when you're in two different countries proved a challenge, but with a wedding gown bought in Copenhagen, Denmark, and the wedding service being held at the Norwegian Church in Gothenburg, Sweden, we came full circle. A small wedding it was, with just the closest of family and friends, but very, very special for the two of us. Since the wedding we have been living in Oslo, Norway, myself going to school and my husband working. Later we plan on moving farther north in Norway, to the island where I grew up. We will be eternally grateful to eHarmony.com for bringing us together! THANK YOU!
