Still far away, but it’s getting closer and closer. I’m so excited but unfortunately I have to wait just a bit longer to get everything sorted out. The process of requesting my visa is a really long one, it takes a bit of patience but it’s all going to turn out just fine.
Lately I’ve read through some magazines, I did some browsing online and made a few plans together with the fiance and the best part is I see him getting more interested in the wedding. He’s suggested a theme, looking for a suit and we’re more often discussing wedding-related things.
Last week I finally did my first official “wedding” purchase! We’re slowly collecting and purchasing all the bits and pieces for our special day. I can’t do too much at the moment because it is still so early and we don’t have a specific date in mind yet but we’re trying to plan whatever we can, for now it’s waiting for good news.
My last few weeks have been total chaos, work on and off and preparing for the boyfriend’s visit. As most of you know I’m in a long distance relationship and I usually travel to the States to see my boyfriend, this time it was going to be a little different. Five years ago I met him for the very first time IRL when he visited me and after all this time he was going to come over again for a short visit in the Netherlands. We had a few things planned including Dutch Comic Con the first weekend and a few city trips the next week. DCC was definitely a fun convention, and it ended in a very special way.
If the picture and the intro of this post didn’t give it away yet. We got engaged ♡ It was a very special moment that I’m glad I got to share with a few of my close friends. We’ve talked about our future in the past, discussed marriage and all of that, and even though I knew this was going to happen sometime in the near future I hadn’t expected him to ask me so early during his visit here. I was surprised, of course super happy but also very grateful he took into consideration to ask me with a few of my close friends present. Obviously I cried a lot of happy tears and received lots of love from everyone who congratulated us. Without any fancy words, I just feel so, so, blessed.
Now comes planning the wedding and all the other fun stuff, I’m really excited and definitely looking forward to our new adventure.
Unfortunately I have been back in the Netherlands for the last few weeks. Back to work and back to wearing scarfs, gloves and an extra pair of leggings. My USA trip was amazing, I loved spending time with my potato baby as well as with friends and family. This time was the first time during the holiday season and experiencing Thanksgiving. I really enjoyed our time together, and just like always it’s really special to me.
I don’t know when I’ll be going back to see him again and hopefully he’ll be able to come visit too next year. For now it’s back to work, saving some money, working on one last cosplay for now, maybe even picking up a new sport and doing some socializing with my friends. I’m so excited!
Christmas comes early for me, normally we don’t put up too many things around Christmas at home. Just because it takes a lot of effort and afterwards it’s just a huge mess. This being the first time in the States around this time of the year it’s really amazing to see how much Christmas stuff is in stores right after Halloween.
Together with the boyfriend we got our, very own, first Christmas tree. We got a tiny white tree, decorated with white and silver ornaments. I love the snowy feel our tree gives, it’s perfect for winter.
Good morning, it’s a little bit chilly, but it’s nice and sunny out. Last week I packed my suitcase and made a trip to the airport, hopped on the plane and off I was to see the boyfriend. I had been looking forward to my trip, normally I would only visit once a year but this time would be different. Earlier this year I made two very short trips, so I was really excited to be visiting for all of November.
I’m used to visiting during the warmer months, so it’s a little bit weird that I have to get used to the colder weather over here. Though, not as cold as back at home. I’m not really doing anything special, just spending time together and enjoying every minute of it. Whenever the boyfriend’s at work I get the chance to relax, sleep in, pamper myself with a Lush bath and a Starbucks frappuccino in the morning.
