How did I find out such big, life changing news?
A few more of my favorite parts from that conversation:
So that's pretty much how it all went down :). Jake's reasoning for telling me through gchat was so that I would have all day to think about it and come up with questions so we could talk about it that night. Well, I definitely thought about it all day so I guess it worked. We talked to both sets of parents a few days later and then I told a few close friends but then we stopped telling people once we found out it wouldn't be an official offer until the end of June. And here we are living in Sweden 12 months later and we've been here 8 months today! (I didn't realize until I went back to check the date of when Jake first told me about moving to Stockholm that it was on the 24th which is the same day of the month we moved to Stockholm.)
