Three wedding's and a Visa!!

A little less than 3 years ago I found myself
in a weird spot with a random guy that I met online.

Obviously you all know how that story progressed.

I remember when I was a teenager and I was obsessed
with all things British, especially in the form of 
a cute guy with that cute accent.

I never once dreamed that I'd actually get
to fall in love with a cute guy with that cute accent.
But I did!
Lucky me ;)

We have both grown so incredibly much
over the last couple of years and we feel so grateful
that we've gotten to spend so much time together,
to really get to know each other and to fall in love!!

We are now in a place where we need to move forward
either together or apart and obviously we're choosing together.

I don't want to live in a world without him
and I'm pretty sure he feels the same about me ;)

So as you may have noticed I've posted a whole
lot about visa's over the last couple of days.

I'm sharing with you the highs and the lows
of this whole long distance love process.

Most of the time it's fun but other times it's hard and
stressful and scary and annoying!

I never want to come across as ungrateful for these
opportunities that we have. So please don't mistake my
grief with the visa process as me being ungrateful!!
Because just knowing that there is a way
for us to be together is amazing!!

We've had to work hard for this relationship so
we're prepared for this next step.

And hopefully once this visa process is done
we will be good for a while.

We know there will be more visa drama in the next few years
but we won't worry about that until the time comes.

Our visa journey is a big deal!
It's the story of one of us packing up and
moving to another country.

Leaving friends and family all in the name of love.

So far on this blog you've gotten to see us fall in love
and now you get to see us take it to the next level!!

The marriage level!!

Oh yes!

So what are you going to see on this space
over the next couple of months?

Well I will spill the beans on our plans
which includes the Visa we've chosen.

I will also share the process of said visa.
I will post when certain paperwork is approved
and we'll all have mini celebrations as we
slowly get this visa in one of our hands.

While we're on this visa journey
I'll also be sharing wedding ideas, plans and 
trying not to go insane because we're planning
a few weddings/receptions...

OH you're probably wondering why there
hasn't been a #blessed #engagement photo with #bling.
Well long distance puts certain things ahead of others.
The ring will come, patience is a virtue ;)

I consider myself lucky to have an incredible guy by my side,
the ring is a lovely symbol that I'm excited for but
If I had to choose what gets priority right now
it would be getting a visa and they ain't cheap y'all!!

So there's that!

Some major things are in store for us
and I'm pretty pumped that I can share it on this blog.

I missed blogging and I feel like I'm getting back into it!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!


  1. Exciting/scary news! Congratulations and best of luck to you both.

  2. Yes, finally! In going through the K1 visa as we speak with a British fiancé, and it's very stressful!

    1. I wish you all of the best on your K-1!!! Are Yall American/British?? Have you sent yours off yet? We're going to start ours this weekend! I think we've decided to just do it ourselves instead of doing like rapid visa or something like that. I'm real nervous about it all!

    2. Yeah! I'm in Indiana and he's from Portsmouth (England!) it's been crazy so far. We got our I-129f back within a month! Though the processing times said 2-5. So now moving onto some things with packet three and the medical and what not!

    3. A month!! That's amazing! Good luck, hope you get it all done soon!! :)

  3. What a powerful words "Leaving friends and family all in the name of love." This is one though move, but everything happen for a reason. I love how you describe your K1 visa journey we know you will have a wonderful life.
