Dear Sveinn

Meeting you last year in Akureyri was not expected. We’ve stayed in touch long distance for over a year now. You’ve shared your life with me – the ups and downs and I’ve done the same. When we reunited recently in Reykjavik it was like we were old friends and something more too.

I don’t know where it’s going and I’ve never been lucky in love. But I’m willing to see where this goes. I think Iceland and America seem far apart but maybe they are closer emotionally than we realize. Like this novel says – it’s day by day. Thanks for coming into my life

– American girl xoxo
