As Valentine’s Day approaches, this is a story of true unwavering love, a story that spans nations, time zones, unimaginable challenges and life-changing decisions. With a legitimate marriage of four years and two bachelor’s degrees, my husband was still on the verge of deportation from the United States. What we did to stay together — in America — is a story of unquestionable love and dedication to marriage.
While many people might think that someone from a foreign country marrying someone in the United States of America equates to automatic citizenship, we learned just how difficult the process can be after we fell in love, got married and endured the citizenship process of a lifetime.

There’s much more than meets the eye with the Mud House, a small coffee shop and brunch spot at 2101 Cherokee St. in downtown St. Louis, from the warm, welcoming atmosphere to the homemade brunch dishes sure to please any brunch-lover.
This American breakfast, literally called This American Breakfast on the menu at The Mud House, includes the classic morning staples of scrambled eggs, bacon, roasted potatoes, toast and jam, but each with a bit of an upscale approach. Photos by Molly Munoz
