On top of it all, we are moving to London next month which put our marriage plans into high gear. Our original date was May 9th, 2009 and since we have money down to have an amazing event in Bermuda (white dress, father gives me away, overlooking the ocean, at sunset) we are still doing it. BUT, with Visa Status in the UK changing, we were advised to get married in a hurry. The actual phrase from the UK immigration lawyer was "no mad rush, in the next five to ten days." We had a civil ceremony on a Wednesday just a little before 1 pm (so the hands were going up). It was very unexpected and fun and since then we have been planning away at London. We recieved our Visa's yesterday and the move date is set for Feb 16 with a going-away party/wedding reception on 2.15 the day before.
I'm actually telling my boss today to give him 4 weeks notice and set up a friend of mine to take over the position.
