Wednesday, May 27, 2009 and three years later I'm still going strong. This blog documents the real moments in our life. We've celebrated births, and mourned the deaths of grandmothers, great aunts, and Martha Fauker. This blog also documents the normal moments in our life. I like to cook and garden and watch Oprah and True Blood. It took me a bit to focus the voice of this blog, but after three years I know that I write these posts to do my quiet part in the quest for marriage equality. I want to show that my husband and I aren't living an alternative lifestyle; we're living a normal life...in all its glorious-ness.
And we want, we deserve, the same rights as my brother and his wife. We want Texas and the United States of America to give us the freedom to marry each other. We're not cowboys - I don't call him "my partner." He's my husband. We had a wedding. I will continue to tinker along in this blog for the 5,000 hits I get a month until I can legally marry my husband.
Fingers crossed it won't take three more years!
