Let’s start a little tradition here, shall we? Every Sunday, I will be posting quotes from my husband (or a story about something he did). Just because. Calling him crazy is an understatement. Haha.

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall and the Allergy Season

By Erika Presson

October 17, 2013

Before I moved to the U.S., I was worried about the fact that I’d be moving to a city/state that sometimes gets colder than other parts of Alaska. I was more concerned about the fact that I’d freeze my butt off the moment I step outside the house. Who wouldn’t be? After searching for “Winter in Grand Forks, ND” on Google and video results include the words “Winter Hell” and “Blizzard”? Little did I know that I should be worried about the Allergy Season in the U.S. too.

A NOTE to people making their “own” guides. Please do not lift directly from the posts I’ve written, whether originally written posts from forums that I belong to or posts from my website/blog. Please have some decency and courtesy to cite your sources and link back. It’s funny when you include my original comments too, like “IKR” and “I know… I know”. I spent a lot of time writing these and have cited my sources — Official .Gov Websites, and my own experience (since I, myself, went through every single process on here.)

Please do your part.

I’ve tried my best to spare you all from the mumbo jumbo. I know it’s quite long, but everything’s written in layman’s terms and should be easy to understand. (I hope.)

To Spelling/Grammar Nazis, please forgive me. Sometimes, I just forget to proof-read. I’m not a professional writer / blogger nor do I claim to be a “writer”. I just like to write and get my point across. If you find mistakes/misspellings/outdated information, please contact me. I will correct them as soon as possible. I come in peace.

Most people don’t know our story. They just know that we met online. That’s it. They instantly assume that we met on a dating site. Well, it wasn’t a dating site. We weren’t even looking for a relationship back then. We just happened to be at the right place, at the right time. Literally. Curious now? Well, just how did Mr. & Mrs. Presson meet?

By Erika Presson

October 4, 2013

Hopefully, I’d be able to launch this blog by next week. -Crosses Fingers- Please check back soon! :)
