I run to be happy

I was born on a cold January day in Sweden in 1986. All the first photos of me are showing my proud parents, grand parents and my older sister, posing with me in different white, snowy landscapes. As I grew up my mum always had this idea about organizing a sledding birthday party for me, to take all the kids out in the snow, sledding, playing games and drinking hot chocolate. We waited and made plans, year after year, but it never snowed on my birthday any more, even though it was in the middle of January and it was supposed to be snowy. So I am still waiting, for things to go back to normal, so I at some point in my life can have that sledding birthday party, that I am dreaming of.
