Hi! I'm Aes, and I'm from Canada. My husband (Max,) is an American citizen, and we've been working on Adjustment of Status since late April. 

I originally came to visit in January, the plague hit shortly after, and we decided to have me adjust status instead of being in a state of not knowing if this visit would be our last for a long while. We've been together 5 years now as of this past July, and married for 3 years as of October 26th! Most of our relationship in the first three or so years was online with visits here and there, but in May 2019, I came to visit for his birthday, and we just started travelling back and forth together. May to Sept, I was here; Sept to Jan, he and I went back to Ontario, and from January on, I've been here again! It's been such a whirlwind with everything happening in politics and health, but I'm just glad we're together. My AOS NOA date is April 23rd (or 24th, I'm tired and can't remember,) and we just got my biometrics notice, so my work permit should be here soon!!

I like coffee, cats, and creating things. Max and I want a farm someday, with chickens, a big garden, and an old timey radio in the kitchen. He's a 3D video game artist and character designer, and I'm still undecided (but leaning towards being a writer!) I collect vintage objects and try to restore them, and I love to sew, paint, do needlepoint, and spend literally all my time with my cat. Nyx is a 5 y/o black cat that talks a lot and loves to lay on me--Max and I 100% call her our kid, because we're those people and love her that much. 

A question here to anyone reading: What's your favorite book? If you're not a book person, what about favorite movie? 

Hope everyone is well and safe!
