Most of you know this already, but in case you don't yet:
I GOT MY VISA.
And there was much rejoicing!
The Embassy called me at 9 this morning, while I was still half asleep, and told me I was approved. I need to go by the building on Monday and drop off my passport and they'll give me the giant envelope with my visa that I'm not allowed to open that I have to give to the Customs agents when I get to the US.
But that's IT. Nearly a year later (it will be a year since our application was submitted on November 10) and through countless trials and days of pain, I can finally get married.
Holy crap, I'm actually getting married. EEE!
December 27th. Oh, my!
