Welcome to my life. It's been hard to start a blog just because I'm a pretty private person. But I love my friends and family, and with the many changes taking place in my life that will limit the contact I have with my beloved family and friends, I decided a blog would be an excellent way for them to know the 411 on the "Brazimericans". I'm going to apologize in advance because I am not very good at keeping these updated. I think it would be an accomplishment to get this done once a week. My facebook/myspace friends can vouch for that. and secondly, I don't know how to do the cutesy patootsy stuff that most of my friends know how to do!! Christy will have to teach me, I guess. :)
Anyway, as of now, September 18th, 2008 I am playing a waiting game with the brazilian consulate. I was suppose to be out of here August 30th, but due to travel complications I am still waiting for my visa so I can go to Brazil and be with Jorge. I am engaged to an amazing man from Brazil. (Yes, we both served in the same mission) We are sacrificing a lot for the chance to be together after two and a half years. But, the sacrifices will be well-worth it for true love. I'm putting my education on hold, selling my car, and leaving the comfort of my home to go and be with him. And believe me, if I DIDN'T think it was worth it, I would never do any of the above. (Those who know me well, know that to be fact)
I definantely consider myself to be a non-traditionalist. So the fact that my relationship, courtship, wedding, and marriage will be different than most, is something that I embrace and look forward to. I just hope I can embrace and look forward to it soon!!!!
