Finally!

Finally, finally done. The Post Office is closed today, but I will be mailing this out tomorrow. It has to go all the way to Oz to my fiance, where he'll add his certified documents and take it to our migration agent's office for them to review. Think this is enough evidence for a PMV?

The sad thing is, I barely included any emails at all. My honey sent me 300 old ones, and I searched through them for references to love, marriage, wedding, move, etc. and printed out those. The rest, though - I just could not go through any more. lol. I was just... ready to be done, and we had plenty of Skype screenshots/Facebook messages/phone bills. I figure if we need more the migration agent will ask for more (and I included a note that more were available). As much fun as it was going through it all, at some point you just hit a wall and go "okay, that's enough!" Haha.

Well done. I think you did it in record time also!!! It is a daunting task and is really an exercise in dedication and commitment...heck we should all get a visa just for applying when you think of all the work and effort we went to for the application alone!!!

One step closer!!!

Well, to be fair, I got quite the head start while we were waiting for his PR to come through. I already had everything done in advance that I possibly could.

I mailed my heart off this morning... all 3.3 pounds (1.5 kg) of documents. I will be a nervous wreck until I know they made it to my fiance safely! Handing them off was terrifying.
