A Visit (4.5 Years Later)

If you're in the United States, no matter what coast you're on, I'm probably in the air right now as you read this.  If you're in England - hold on, I'm coming!  (And to my dear readers everywhere else, you're awesome.)  Yes, that's right, I'm flying to London to see Jon for the first time in four and a half months, and, with our parents, we'll finalize the plans for our wedding!  It's a whirlwind trip and my head is spinning with everything we're packing into it, but it's going to be amazing.  Even the weather is sort of cooperating!  England was still stuck in winter as recently as last week, but they've finally emerged into early spring.  Coming from DC, which has jumped ahead into early summer already, this should be lovely and refreshing...


This trip, which was planned around my mother's conference in London, also happens to coincide with a sort-of anniversary: as of yesterday, Jon and I have dated for four and a half years.  (Alright, yes, there was a blip in there halfway through, but let's not count that, okay?)  We won't celebrate April 19 anymore after August 24, so I plan on being silly about it while I can.  So, in the spirit of that, I'm going  to ask you to join me in telling Jon that he's the best ever!  Let's see how many comments we can surprise him with by the time I land this evening, shall we?  Any other compliments you can think of are welcome too, obviously.  I mean, look at him!  I know I'm biased, but he's the cutest.


I'll be popping in on Twitter and Instagram if you want to follow along with my trip, but we'll definitely have some recaps here on the blog when I get back!  And do check in next week for some visa stories from a few other expat bloggers.  Thanks in advance for guest posting, friends, and I'll see you next weekend, dear readers!
