As many of you know, I'm engaged to a lovely flier from Tokyo...

She applied for her fiancé (K-1) visa earlier this year, and just completed her final interview today.

APPROVED. :D

She'll be arriving Portland for good on October 13th, right after I'm back from AKA...

Wedding will be sometime in November or December. ;)

All I can say is YABBADABBADOO.

I am so happy for you both, hopefully now that some of the pressure is off you can start enjoying your lives together. Oh yes, then the pressure of al the Wedding arrangements.

Best idea I can think of for you both is to just Elope and have a nice lettle ceremony.

I sort of hate to think of the guest list.

Bro and Sis, I hope you have felt all the energy the rest of your family have been sending your way.

I am so glad for you I could just burst into song. You REALY dont want to hear what a Bear singing sounds like.

Great news! Quiet ceremony is probably safest, else to accommodate the whole kite family you'll have to run a *webcast* ;)
