Licensed to Wed!


This morning, at 5:30 a.m., Bruce and I became the 279th couple in Seattle to get a marriage license! Today is the first day in Washington State's history that same-sex couples could apply to legally marry.

We are so excited to be able to take this step that neither of us, as little as a few years ago, dreamed could ever happen--and thrilled to be a small part of history.

We plan on marrying on Sunday (small, small wedding) and then having a big party late summer/early fall and are looking into options. A cruise boat? A winery tucked into a hillside? the Space Needle? Stay tuned...

  1. I can't even begin to express how happy I am for you guys. I actually teared up at this, knowing you can finally have it. It seems like such a small thing, just a piece of paper, but it's oh so momentous.

  2. Truly wonderful, but I can't help thinking gays should always have had this right.

    I'm glad it happened though. SO GLAD!
