I'm going to try my hand at blogging like all these other blogs I've started reading lately.
I'm 22 years old, married for about a year. Our wedding was on July 3, 2010. We live in BC Canada. I work as an education assistant at a private school with 2 blind boys.
My husband is 27 years old and his birthday is the day after mine. He works as a service advisor at a Honda car dealership. He immigrated to Canada to be with me in October 2010.
We met online playing World of Warcraft in April 2008. It didn't seem important to be at the time because I was dating someone else. Our friendship changed into a romantic interest (at least on my part) near the end of the summer as I was realizing that my current boyfriend wasn't a long time relationship type of guy. When I broke up with that boyfriend in the fall, we started talking more and lost interest in other people.
We met in person in March 2009, almost a year after we started talking and playing World of Warcraft together. We had an instant connection. He visited me for a week over spring break and we spent all day every day together. It was the best time of my life.
We only had a few visits in the time that we were dating and it was difficult. After the March visit here, I took a trip to Nevada to visit him in July. A few other WoW friends came as well and we had a blast meeting everyone and camping together. After that, we planned for an October (Thanksgiving) trip, but he surprised me by showing up for my birthday (Sept 21).
Our last trip while dating was Christmas. My whole family visited my grandparents in So Cal and he drove from Nevada to meet us on Christmas Day. We turned around and drove back to Nevada on Boxing Day. He proposed on New Years. It was supposed to be 12am but he surprised me earlier in front of his grandma when we walked her home at 8. He then proposed shortly after 12 in front of the rest of them.
We had two visits while engaged. He came in February for counselling, Valentine's Day, working on our immigration paperwork and a short visit. I'm pretty sure I went down to visit in March for my 2 week spring break.
The next visit was JULY! Wedding time! We got married on the 3rd and then drove through all of Washington on the 4th. The fireworks were so pretty and they were everywhere! We crashed at a friend's place and then started on our honeymoon. We spent a week at Disneyland and went to Six Flags. After that we went to visit my grandparents in So Cal and then back to his place in Nevada where we spent the summer. I sat around and did nothing most days while he was at work.
At the end of the summer I had to go back to work and he had to stay in Nevada. It was so hard to leave because I had no idea when we would be together again. I planned a trip in October where we packed all his stuff and cataloged it for when he moved.
His paperwork came through right around the time of my trip so he gave his 2 weeks and moved up as soon as he could.
We moved into my parents place here and thankfully have been living rent free since then as we try pay down debt and get things figured out. By the end of next month, hopefully, their basement will be a seperate suite and we will be paying rent with keys and locks between us.
