On January 31, 2006, I posted on MaustsOnToast with excitement after calling Emily in England to find out that she had completed her interview at the US Embassy in London and that her passport should arrive in the next couple of days.
On February 3, 2007, Emily posted on MaustsOnToast with a mixture of humor and gravitas about her first year living in America.
Today, February 2, 2008, I am writing in celebration of Emily's two year anniversary in America. Since she has immigrated we have moved twice and lived in three different apartments; I have graduated from college and started at seminary; she has started at nursing school; we've visited New York City, Lake Erie, Charleston SC and countless pohdunk towns.
Hopefully there will be a day when the holidays in our family don't revolve around immigration; but that we are from two separate places is a part of the make up of our little, two person family.
Thanks, Peanut! Mwa.
