Happily happily.... and almost Christmas!

Very very random pictures from our firs 73 days of Happily Ever After.
We are well, we've had some colds, flu and stomach bugs, but we're allright. And we're looking forward to celebrating Christmas on our little hill,
in our cozy little perfect dream-house
(that, for anyone wondering is staying TOASTY in the cold weather =)
We wear Reindeerboots (both of us) and they keep our feet warm, yes toasty..
This is our "Christmassy" little house last night
All four candles now lit in the Advent wreath
Just about the nicest bedroom ever
Our bookshelf, which yes, fits all our books =)
My little kitchen, with my great-grandmother's salt, rice and spice jars.
What we do... trucking
The one day I was a housewife =) well, I always am,
I'm just out "there" with my husband most of the time.
Our puppydog, Sadie
Second picture on my camera, which was a wedding gift from my friends in Norway.
Thanksgiving, Joseph joins in in the picture
What I travelled half across the world for,
and left all I knew and loved behind for:
the best-budship and love and only-oneliness I share with my Ben.
I am beyond happy. Ben is too.
Merry Christmas.

This blog has been on hold

due to a certain
above and beyond deliriously happy
married couple...
after 17 days we're still married, still above and beyond happy,
life could not be better,
and... I just wanted to let you all know:

So, I left...

.....Norway last Wednesday
... and travelled all the way to America. in three days (October 9) I'll be getting married
to that handsome guy running up the hill towards me,
in the very spot I'm standing
(if the weather is nice that is)
Right now we (which is me, my wonderful Pigletish sister, ***** and *****)
are sewing the wedding dress,
Ben (and ***** and ******)
are working on our perfect, cozy little *secret* (to me), now I know it's a house.
Thank you all for praying me through this,
it's been the hardest year in my (very short) life.
I'm still getting over it,
but I'm getting better every day.
Thanks again.

I did it =)

I packed three suitcases
full of all my stuff
(well, a tenth or so of my original pile of stuff,
but my Piglet&I managed to shrink it!)
For the first time in 10 months "packing my suitcases" is not
on my to-do-list.
And now I'm all done.
Leaving my parents' home Sunday night,
staying with friends 8 hours away the last few days
before leaving,
STILL WAITING for a call, for the visa to get ready
In less than two weeks (God willing) I'll say yes again, to my Ben,
368 days after my first yes.
I can't wait to walk every step of the way with him,
share all joy, share all sorrow.
The Lord is so *so* good.
I love Him so.

Of Cake and Lovebirds...

Just a teeny weeny update here to tell you all that:
* big fat letter arrived
* all required documents are obtained
* and sent.
*we're now waiting for an interview date,
and I'm leaving by train on Monday to go to the capital.
When I come home, I'll be waving that visa in my hand
for real.
(though, I have no idea WHEN I'll be back..)
"My heart rejoices in the LORD;
in the LORD my horn[strength] is lifted high.
My mouth boasts over my enemies[not the Embassy],
for I delight in your deliverance."
1. Sam 2:1
* Cutting the cake at our engagement party...
I love this picture =)The on-lookers...
don't you just LOVE on-lookers??Smiling at the camera
We sure CUT that cake, didn't we??
