When Words Fail To Describe

26 Jul

As I sit to begin my weekly blog post, I usually have an idea, a direction, or a story in mind. I’ve already rolled a topic around, worked on a catchy title and know where I’m heading. This week I am at a loss to describe my week. We’re in California for an amazing wedding, our own. We have been in a relationship for twenty years, and had a commitment ceremony fifteen years ago. Yesterday we got legally married. There are no words to describe the sweetness of the experience. We were relaxed, surrounded by people who love us and it was perfect.


It's a long flight from Cancun to Dallas to San Francisco.

Our adventure is not over. We return to Mexico tomorrow and a honeymoon in Playa del Carmen. We thank you in advance for all your love, support and well wishes. We are blessed to have lived to experience the freedom to be ourselves and have our marriage recognized. Gratitude, gratitude, gratitude.
