July 1, 2008

This evening from our front porch at sunset

Wow, how time flies. It seems like just yesterday Michael was stepping off the plane (ok, off the tram in the airport...I wasn't allowed to get to the terminal...damned Homeland Security) and into my life. I have to keep pinching myself to make sure it's not all a fabulous dream. It's been a wonderful honeymoon as well.

For those of you new to our story, Michael and I met on Second Life. I was a stripper in a nightclub there (shut up, I can hear you), and Michael was a customer (yeah, I know). We danced into the night in one another's arms after my "shift" and were inseparable thereafter. (btw, if you've not been on SL, you really should give it a go!!)

It wasn't long before we realized that we had to meet in real life. We arranged for Michael to come to the states for a weekend (I gave up the stripping, so I had some extra time...lol), and we had a ball. In December, Michael came to the states for a three month "let's get to know each other better" period, and he's been here ever since (much to the chagrin of Immigration...).

While we wait for Immigration to come through with Michael's working and travel papers, we've been spending a lot of time here on the house. Michael has put in a pond in the back yard, has trimmed, mowed, pruned and painted--he's quite the busy guy. Since I've been on sabbatical, I haven't done a lot except enjoy every moment we are together!

So watch this space....loads of photos, stories and updates, I promise!! And if Barack wins in November, we'll even invite you all to PA for a party. ;) Now for your job--pin me baby and hit the map!!
