It’s time to celebrate!

We received the best news today, Ger has received his visa! I cannot tell you the total relief, consuming excitement and pure joy that we are feeling. He has been gone 420 days to be exact. That’s a long time for a couple let alone a newly married one. 

This process has been grueling. We’ve dealt with thousands of dollars in visa fees, incompetent lawyers (which ultimately delayed the process by at least 5+ months) and not to mention the time apart. I don’t wish this process on my worst enemy.

Tomorrow afternoon I will see my husband walk through those airport doors to freedom. I cannot tell you how proud I am of him after everything he has been through and how proud I am of us to survive such an experience. We’ve grown so much closer in this past year and we’ve learned a lot. It reminds me that in every situation there is opportunity to grow and always something to be thankful for.

If all goes well with my husband’s visa he should be home in two weeks! We want to take a nice vacation to celebrate and are trying to decide where we want to go.

Ger was going through old family photos and came across these amazing ones from a trip to Menorca. Looks like my kind of place!

I am back in the states after visiting my husband in Ireland. I miss him dearly and it’s incredibly difficult to be apart for so long.
The past year has been unspeakably hard but know that if we can get through this time in our lives, we will be able to sleep in a storm.
