Bay Area to Hertfordshire!
« on: May 17, 2017, 04:50:08 PM »
Hi everyone!!

I'm so happy I found this forum.

I'm currently awaiting a decision on my spouse visa so I can join my husband in the UK

Here is my priority timeline:
Online application submitted: 31.March.2017
Biometrics: 13.April.2017
Documents shipped: 13.April.2017
Confirmation email: 18.April.2017

A little about me.. I'm from Sacramento, CA, currently living in the Bay Area. I'm a librarian - it's so much fun!! I love where I'm from and I'm a little nervous about homesickness, despite my love for the UK. I'm hoping this forum will help me meet other expats in the area! While I am so excited to starting a life in the UK, I know I'll miss home and it would be nice to meet other Americans.

I need people who understand my love for guacamole and yoga!!

Anyways, nice to meet everyone!
