Does the consulate read my blog?
Just kidding…but VOILÀ !
THE COPIE D’ACTE DE MARIAGE AND LIVRET DE FAMILLE HAS ARRIVED!
I mentioned in my last post how I was getting nervous about all of the documents needed for my visa–but it seems right when I get to my breaking point of anxiety about a document–the consulate pulls through for me!
Now I have everything I need for my visa appointment!
Confession–when I first opened the FedEx envelope, I only saw the sheets of our “copie d’acte de mariage.” It wasn’t until the next day as I was getting ready to throw out the envelope that I realized our livret de famille was hidden inside!
While I’m super relieved to have these things for my visa appointment, there’s also something pretty cool about knowing the French government recognizes our marriage. Plus, we’ll be using this book to record the births of little King Smiths one day! So I better not lose it…
I’m so excited to go off to Melbourne next week–stress free 🙂
