My Most Beautiful Adventure Day 26

June 6, 2011

All good things must come to an end. Well, at least that is what “they” say.  I am not sure I necessarily believe that to be the truth, but in this case, our unforgettable honeymoon was indeed over.

 

Not many of my readers knew that at the end of our romantic journey throughout Brasil, my husband and I would have to say goodbye to each other for an indefinite amount of time.  Unfortunately, his visa did not get processed as quickly as we had hoped for, thus he would have to return to Argentina and I to the States.  Our last day together was heartbreakingly painful, but we both realized that we are only months away from spending the rest of our lives together, finally side by side.  For those of you that did know our situation and sent me loving words of support and encouragement, I cannot express how deep my gratitude is.

 

It was like the Universe knew that we needed something to help us with our sadness, because out of nowhere the sweetest dog appeared.  She was 1 of 3 that lived at La Suite and she would not leave us alone.  At one point she even followed us to our room, jumped into the bed, and snuggled underneath the covers.  I am so grateful that she came into our life when she did, as she distracted us from the inevitable and provided us with a lot of laughs and joy.

End note: Thank you from the bottom of my heart for following my most beautiful adventure to date!  I will now begin the journey all over again with even more words and pictures.

    When things get tough in my life, I pick a date and imagine that things we’ll be better. (It will get better by Thanksgiving, The Fall, etc.) It always works for me. And, I totally believe I hear about preparations for Lucas’ “Welcome Home to North Carolina” Party before the summer is out. I send out e-hugs and know that this will be a short season for you! 🙂

    That sucks that his visa didn’t get processed fast enough. You guys had such an amazing wedding and honeymoon experience, and you’ll think of those moments every day you are apart. You’ll be reunited soon enough.

    My husband and I had to be seperated for a few months early in our marriage too. It is heart breaking to go through, but amazingly time slips by… next thing you know you’ve been married for 5 years and think back to that moment that you thought would last forever.
    I hope that this time will slip by fast for you!

      Doesn’t it sound long!? Ugh!!! I just wish we had a date, whatever it may be, but a day we could countdown to would be so helpful! Could be weeks could be months. Oh well, we’ll survive!

    Wow. I can only echo the sentiment of the other comments. Remember, you’ve been away from each other before and he will be back again. You have some amazing friends and I’m sure many more incredible pictures to continue sharing your journey. And I’m sure you’re already planning the next adventure. 🙂

      Yes, we’re totally pros at long distance, that’s for sure! It just feels SO different now that we’re married. Thankfully, I have a lot to keep me busy with at the moment and yes you’re right I have amazing friends that have been really supporting me.

      PS How did you know that I was already planning my next adventure??? 😉

      Unfortunately, a minute feels like a day right now! We’re just so ready to start our new life together and we don’t have an exact date as to when that will be able to happen. It’s frustrating! But, we’re tough and we know that there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel. 🙂

      I’m totally daydreaming about picking him up at the airport and knowing that all of this immigration drama is FINALLY over!!! It really is unfortunate that we’ve had to jump through the hoops that we’ve jumped through. Has taken like 5 years off my life haha!

    I didn’t know that you two had to split again! I thought that this would be the end after 6 long years :(. I wish you the best and hope that the process is as quick as possible so you two can finally be together again!

    All the best Andi, I have loved your posts, photos and stories from you gorgeous wedding and honeymoon!

      Yes, sadly we had to split again! Sooo frustrating and terrible!!! I’m hoping this process goes by quickly as well, though it feels like eternity! Thank you so much sweetheart for your kind words. I thoroughly enjoyed writing about my wedding/honeymoon experience!!! 🙂

    That’s so sad, Andi. 🙁 No couple in love should be split like that. The strictness of immigration laws makes me so angry at times like this. *hugs*

    Oh my gosh I can’t stand it — that dog is SO cute!! And you are beyond happy holding it. Awwwww. You and Lucas will be together again soon. Sending much goodwill and good energy toward whatever US Immigration official is holding this up already!!

      Hey that’s a brilliant idea haha! Thank goodness, his interview is now set for July 6! Fingers crossed he is able to come just a couple weeks after that!!!

    Enhorabuena to the two of you!! I don’t know which I liked more, the pictures of puppies or how your post made me think. Kike and I have been together for well over five years, but our long distance periods have made up nearly half of that – my trips to visit my family, his deployments. While he’s abroad, we can’t skype, but it’s fun to exchange letters the old fashioned way and think really hard about what his voice or that crazed laugh were like. I know it’s love when he rturns two months later and I can never get my outfit right!!
