In June last year when Linn and Daniel came to New York and we spent everyday slightly drunk, very sweaty and as happy as only possible when you have your best friend and her boy in your city.
Almost exactly a year ago, when Linn came to me in Berlin and we danced like we were in Dalston 2012 and had 1€ egg sandwiches at 5 in the morning.
And almost TWO YEARS AGO (what?!) when Linn and Daniel came to Hamburg and spent five days with me in my favorite bars, in my classmates apartments and in my bed watching the Oscar-nominations.
This is one of my favorite photos. In August 2012 on Daniel's roof in Shoreditch. It was my last day before moving back to Stockholm after 6 months in London, Nicolas and Jared were visiting and it was still hot summer. We spent the night ignoring the fact that I was catching a plane early the next morning.
Linn and I have been friends since we were in our mom's bellies. When we were kids we always lived far away from each other and sometimes it went years of us not seeing each other. But we always had the best time whenever we hung out. And then we grew up and turns out even though she spent her teens in Kenya and I spent mine in a Swedish vanilla suburb we turned out pretty alike. Kudos to our parents I guess, for having good values and kind hearts.
We became the best of friends around the time we graduated from high school and aside from us living in London together in 2012, we've rarely been in the same city at the same time. When I went to London for my internship she'd just moved to Stockholm to study. When I came home to Stockholm after graduation she was just about to move back to London. But somehow we've managed to have a pretty dope and well functioning long distance relationship for these past 4 years and it's gonna have to continue if Daniel and her doesn't pack up their stuff and move to New York? (Pls?????)
Anyways, this wasn't meant to be a post about my fave gal (even though I could write a fucking book about her because she's THAT great). It was supposed to be a post saying: In a month I'll be in London with her and Daniel to celebrate Daniel and Nicolas' 30th birthday and I can't wait. Linn!!!!! London!!!!!! SPRING in London!!!!! And the best part - I'll be there for a whole week! Linn and I will spend the days working and the nights drinking beer and roaming around East London. There's no better way to spend a week I think.
