Marc and I met on his birthday, 13 years, 7 months and 15 days ago.
So it seemed fitting that me make it "legal" on my birthday... which is today. I'm sure we would have done this sooner, but marriage only became an option for us recently. We were waiting for New York, but the Democrats in New York took our votes and suddenly lost some of their dedication to the cause. But I digress--and there's no need for any of that on such a happy day. We didn't wait for New York. Instead, we went to Connecticut to get it done.
Today, we went to Danbury, visited their City Hall, got a marriage license and then went to a Justice of the Peace. We had contacted the Justice of the Peace quite a while ago, so this was all set up and ready to go.
She was terrific, and she conducted a wonderful ceremony. We said our vows, exchanged our rings and lit a candle.
When I have more time, I'll share the vows we said. In the meantime, I'm going to take my HUSBAND (yes!!!) upstairs. Because, you know, we wanted to wait until we were married before we did anything.
Okay, we wanted to wait, but, as I recall, we waited until after lunch back when we first met. ;) Even so, I'm dragging this hot man upstairs, and I'll share more about today when I have more time!
