Exciting news for us here at Knitted Bliss- my husband G, that charming, affable British guy who came into my world and then decided to never leave, was officially made a permanent resident of Canada yesterday; shortly before midnight. We got the visa during the day, and then got so excited we decided to drive to Buffalo and back that night, to validate it. They don't allow photos at Port of Entry Authority, so we took photos in that most Canadian of institutions- the nearest Tim Horton's. Here's G looking super happy:
And okay, I'll admit it- I cried. It started while actually in the Port of Entry office at the Canadian border. They signed off on his visa, handed it back to G and said, 'welcome to Canada.' I pretty much lost it right then and there. Couldn't stop crying for about ten minutes! And it kicked off again in the Tim Horton's, and when I called my mother, etc.
We're exhausted, giddy, and so, so happy. We've been in the process for a year now, and this is what we've been waiting for. Now we can look ahead to a rosy future- we can begin to make plans for buying a home, starting a family, and making all our dreams come true.
