Today is a Good Day

Good morning! And what a wonderful morning it is. As I'm sipping my coffee (well, cappuccino- haven't graduated to full-on coffee yet), I am reflecting about what a wonderful day yesterday was, what a great past couple weeks I have had, and how much I have to look forward to in the coming month or so. The highlights of my day yesterday:

Munich Oktoberfest 2013
Oktoberfest 2013
I have finally booked my Oktoberfest trip for this year! I had such an amazing time last year with my older brother, two of our friends, and all of the wonderful people we met I knew I had to return. This year, I will be headed back with that same brother, my Mom, and perhaps a few other people- get on booking your trips! Oktoberfest really is one of the happiest places in the world, and I cannot say enough good things about my trip there last fall. Can't wait to return for Oktoberfest München 2014!

Beyond booking Oktoberfest, I wasn't feeling that great in the morning yesterday, so my amazing hubby knew just how to cheer me up- a trip to Pizza Hut for their lunch buffet! Now, this may seem like a crazy thing- but over here in Sweden, the pizza just isn't…like back home. So a trip to Pizza Hut is a miraculous cure. Then, while I took a nap, he went out to run a few errands and came back with some gorgeous roses for me! Talk about a great husband.

This week, we bought a bike for me- just needs a few touchups in the shop- so I will be getting that tomorrow and able to roll around town! We live about halfway between the hockey rink and downtown Västerås, so having a bike will make going anywhere a nice quick trip- even easier than driving and having to find & pay for parking!

Last night, I also met up with my hockey team for the year and had a good workout at the gym. It was definitely a tough workout, and I am feeling it today- but it feels so great to get back in the groove! We have another ice practice Friday, and then a preseason game on Sunday- so excited to get back on the ice!

This year is already starting off so much different than last year. I am much more settled, and feel more comfortable here in Sweden- especially now that I know my way around, I can understand the road signs and drive on my own, I can go grocery shopping on my own and pick out things. Being more comfortable and at ease has helped us to settle in a lot more quickly this year. I have already gotten our apartment set up and looking like home by hanging pictures and doing some crafts to make it more homelike. VIK should have a great season, and a really good team this year. Preseason has been great so far! There is a great group of North American gals here as well, and all the Swedish girls I've met have been really friendly and outgoing. I'm excited for the upcoming season- both Nick's, and my own!

Now, time for me to finish up my final paper for my class and get ready for a little wine night while watching Nick's game! How about yourself- what is the best thing that has happened to you today?
