First, I need to apologize for how long it has taken me to update. Last I wrote, Tyler had received his Visa package in the mail and we were solidifying plans for him to move here. As an update, he is living here now and we married December 12, 2015. We’re not in the process … More Long overdue
Tyler’s interview was today and I’m trying really hard to actually write something intelligible rather than: OMG OMG OMG WE ARE APPROVED!!!111111111one but it’s not working, so use the above as an actual indication that it went well and hold tight for a review. Also, I’m putting together the review/experience with the medical examination and … More A new journey begins (aka VISA APPROVED)
That’s a pretty loaded question. I’ve been in the engineering field for 9 years now working as a Project manager & physicist. This is never the field I thought I would end up in. I had all the same dreams as any little girl; I’ll be a veterinarian, a fashion model, a designer, a teacher. … More Have I found what I truly enjoy?
When I first began researching how long a K1 visa takes to process, I didn’t really know how many steps were in this journey at all. Just like most people, I assumed you applied and then you got one if you were accepted. There’s actually several steps to getting the Visa as you may have … More Weeks turn into months

All has been quiet here the last few days. We’re just been waiting for Tyler to go to his medical appointment and then his interview. We’ve done all that we can in the meantime to prepare. For the most part, this first chapter of the journey is completed. I really don’t have much in the … More Dollar Signs
The past week has been pretty quiet here. It’s been spent tying up lose ends and getting everything prepared for Tyler’s Medical and Interview. The Montreal embassy offers a few different doctor options (based on location) for getting your medical. These are the US Dept. of State approved physicians. You must pick from the list they … More Interlude
Tyler went home today after a 2 month visit. It was a hard goodbye after playing house for so long. But the good news is that our Packet 3 was accepted. For those of you who don’t know what a Packet 3 is or don’t have to to that for your embassy, the Montreal packet … More An end of a visit but silver linings…
I had an interesting experience with the Embassy last week. Before checking the CEAC website, I emailed the Montreal Embassy asking for information on my case. A representative responded that my case had not yet made it there. I replied that the CEAC website said it had. The rep then told me it was a … More Montreal Visa Application
Sorry for being remiss in updating. I was in Portland, Oregon for work. However, while I was there I took a minute to call the NVC for a status update on my case. After 45 mintutes of calling over and over and then waiting for a rep, I was told my case was sent to … More Can’t keep up.
