This was the cake that was bought for my celebration on Saturday. I actually got my citizenship on Tuesday but we had friends over for a BBQ today. I am getting my passport on Monday so then I'm good to go. I know many of my friends and relatives in the states won't understand why I took out Australian citizenship. Mainly I did because I could and I still got to keep my American citizenship. Most importantly this was the last step of an eight year process that James and I have gone through making it possible for us to be together.
