Hello! I’m Bree and I like writing to cope with… well pretty much everything. My life recently took a sharp turn in the spring of 2015 when I started dating my long time friend, now fiancé, Alan. After almost four years of bad dates and lonely Valentine’s Days I fell in love. One small problem: I am Canadian, he is American. This is the story of how I picked up my life in Toronto to move with him to his home in San Francisco.


My purpose in writing this blog is both to document the trials and tribulations of a foreign citizen moving to the U.S with the intent of marrying, and also to unleash the chaos of emotion that accompanies picking up one’s life and plopping it down somewhere new. I hope that this can be a guide and a source of comfort for anyone attempting to do the same. For everyone else, hopefully you enjoy the ride!
