If you liked it, then you shoulda put a ring on it....Oh Wait. She Did.

The rings. If you're gay, you get TWO rings. How special, right??

The newly engaged
A brief summary:

18 month anniversary.

Central Park.

Bench in gazebo with quote about love at first sight.

Nice words.

I said yes.


More tears.

Yet more tears.

Phone calls (Calling every sibling in my family of seven takes a long time.)


Overwhelming sense of incompetence at idea of planning wedding.

Inability to answer any questions regarding wedding other than date (July 2012), and "Is it legal in NY?" (Answer: No, but NY recognizes the marriage if it was made legal in another state.), and "Where are you going to get married?" (Answer: Not Iowa.)

More happyhappyjoyjoy.

Inability to sleep because too excited from imagining wedding, married life, reality of heavy, diamond rings on fingers, etc.

Cannot get used to ring on left hand. Absolutely cannot. (Will it always feel this way?)

Will always love her. Always.

Okay, so this is the very first time I've clicked over to your blog (you left a comment on mine) but let me just tell you OH GIRL, this blog entry made me smile SO BIG. I've got a big, goofy grin for you and Alix. Congratulations!!!!!

Oh, also — I live in Massachusetts, and same-sex marriage is totally legal here, and there are some *gorgeous* places to get married. I'm just sayin'.

Nanny! Thanks for reading! It's made me so excited that I am over-using exclamation points!!! But yes, MA is definitely on the list of possible places, especially since Alix and I both went to (two different) schools there.
