Another birthday…

Today is my dear friend Ilka’s birthday. She’s turning… [just as old as she feels] today! I hope you have a wonderful day, sweetie, and I can’t wait to be there and celebrate with you :) I am so happy and thankful to call you my friend and you only deserve the best.

So, I am going to Ilka’s tonight. I am really looking forward to hanging out with her and celebrate her birthday. I vividly remember last year’s party in the salon with all the Xanga girls. That was fun! Even though it’s not going to be an as big of party this year, I am sure we’ll have a blast.
Even though I feel stuck in Germany, I am thankful that I am here for all these special times with my friends. They really mean a lot to me and it just keeps me from hiding in my room contemplating on when they will finally grant me entrance to the United States to live with my honey. It’s just starting to become ridiculous. I’ve been waiting here for over 6 months now. Everyone is totally baffled when I tell them that you can’t just book a flight and go to the US with your hubby once you’re married. It might seem to be the logical thing to do, but Immigration thwarts you. It’s a huge pile of papers and bureaucracy… and requires a whole lot of patience.
Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Happy Birthday Ilka! LOVE the glasses!!!

    Did you marry someone in the military? It’s strange that Germany, being an ally, it would take so long!

  2. @ Janet: No, Jon ist not in the military… we met during my exchange semester at his university. Still – it shouldn’t take so freakin’ long.
