With a heavy heart

It is time to move on.
I will close this blog. For good.
I thought about this for a long time, went back and forth in my mind about what to do with it.
Should I change the name of the blog, what name could that be, what would I write about in the future...? The answer is that I don't have all the answers (yet).
I will be blogging in the future, I want to share and be/stay in touch with other bloggers and family and friends through this platform. I just haven't found the right way to do that yet. I have changed in many ways as a person, and in other ways I am still the same, and always will be. But for most of us the world around us changes too and we sometimes it is better to go with the flow.

I am not the same (hillybillyfarm)girl I was almost eight years ago when I first started this blog.
My first post I did in okt. 2008, two weeks after we had moved into a new house in a new country, starting a new life.
To get to where I am today has been a fantastic journey, and the most important thing is, that I actually have found a place, a country, where I really feel at home.
They say that "home is where the heart is" and my heart is right here in Sweden.
It is a beautiful country with a beautiful nature, clean air and mostly wonderful people.

I even applied for Swedish citizenship last week.
A new stage of my life, a new beginning. It will take approximately one and a half years until I get approval but that's basically just a formality.

It is time to thank you all that have followed and supported this blog throughout the years, some of you became true blogger friends and I am thankful for that.
Many of you will always stay in my memory and close to my heart, and I wish you all well for whatever it is that lies ahead.
Thank YOU!

With much love,


Michaela aka Hillybillyfarmgirl
