Just married

Updated: Sep 6, 2018

19 th of December I got married. My last name changed from Andersson to Rodriguez. We said yes in Montevideo Uruguay with my husbands family and friends togethering. Now we are planing our Swedish wedding 2th of August.

Landing in Uruguay 14 th of December just days before our wedding. Nervous as could be. The fist time I was meeting my husbands family. It might seemed crazy for a lot of people that we got married so soon or even before meeting his parents. But life sometimes happens when your busy making other plans.

“After all this time and for all these years we spend apart it was such an amazing moment to say, yes I do. Knowing how far we have come, all these time was worth it, finally I can call you my husband”

We first met in Zambia late 2014 when I was traveling the world, just me and my backpack. There he was at this small bungyjump place ready to jump of a bridge. And I could not stop staring at this beautiful human. Who are now my husband. If I would have known then what a journey we would go on, I would have never believed it.

So here we are today. After sharing a distance relationship for almost 4 years. We made it. So many months of traveling back and forth to see each other, and many facebook calls later, we are now living together for the first time.

Hector is from Uruguay and been working for United nation and was stationed in Kongo DRC. Me, Im from Stockholm, capital of Sweden, always had a passion for traveling and never thought I would ever get married.

Here I am today, looking back on this crazy journey we both shared. I will share a lot of memories from this time when we could go up to 5 months without seeing each other. But at the same time we really learned how to deal with it and I think it made us get to know each other on a different level.

We have now lived together for 4 months and to be honest I thought it was gonna be harder.But its so much easier then sharing a world apart relationship. I am now planing our wedding, witch would be held in my home town Tyresö. My friends and family will vitnesses this moment and I am just so excited. A lot of planing and a lot of work needs to be done.

The wedding in Uruguay was all planed when I arrived, i basically just got my dress with me and said yes. It was a small wedding and it was beautiful and I couldn't be more happy with it.
