23 years ago today, Jay and I made a home together. He moved into my place, we merged our belongings and our lives. Around that time I asked him to marry me and he said, "don't be ridiculous, two men can't do that." Well times have changed, and when he asked me this summer after the Supreme Court ruled that we can do that, I said YES!. We began planning and decided that keeping the anniversary the same would be a wonderful idea, and wonderfully enough October 17th fell on a Saturday.
We have a permit to host the event in a national park in Alexandria, followed by lunch for about 20 family and friends at a restaurant in Alexandria that has been serving since 1770- George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin ate there. George had a townhouse a couple of blocks away and was a leader in the Episcopal Church just up the street (you can sit in his box when you visit the church.)
Yes pictures will follow. Soon.
What am I most looking forward to? Saying, "My Husband."
