I'm Getting Married

Yep, it's really happening. In less than three weeks I'll be officially hitched, with the blessing of District of Columbia law, to my man, the great and wonderful David Blank.

While at times the details have been overwhelming, this has been a fun adventure -- but nothing like the 25 years we've already had together. Thanks again to Barack Obama for the inspiration to do this. And here's hoping the United States Supreme Court keeps hope alive!

"At a certain point I've just concluded that, for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married." - President Barack Obama (May 9, 2012)
