Wow! It's Been A Year

Time flies so fast! It's been a year since I got here. So many things happened. I can't enumerate each of them here but I can share the highlights of my one year stay in the US. I left the Philippines April 13, 2007 via Philippine Airlines with connecting flights, Cebu-Manila, Manila-LA, LA-Baltimore. I was having mixed emotions then. When I was about to leave, I felt very excited about having a new life with my fiance and sad at the same time saying goodbye to my family at the airport. On the other hand, it's been a great year for me. I got married, travel to see places, meet friends, got a job, got a driver's license, got my green card for permanent residency and most of all after a year of being together I realized I did the right choice. They say it's hard to be married to a foreigner because of cultural differences and interracial marriages are difficult but it works for us. I'm grateful for 1 blissful year and I'm still counting...
