Celebration of Love

  Happy Valentine's Day from the wintery streets of New York!


This Valentine's Day is extra wonderful because the state of Washington became the seventh state in the nation to legalize same-sex marriages! On February 13, 2012, Governor Christine Gregoire signed the bill, marking a huge victory for marriage equality. Couples of the LGBT community will be able to marry, legally, in Washington state as early as June 7, 2012. Opponents, however, are already seeking its repeal through the ballots in the November polls,which could put the law on hold pending the outcome. Hopefully, this glorious step towards marriage equality will not be hindered due to close-mindedness and intolerance .
 
On February 13, 2012, Cori and I celebrated our Valentine's Day, as well as our one year since Cori proposed to me at the Aquarium. Even more, this date marked an official eight months until our wedding date! We will be celebrating our one year since I proposed to Cori at Grand Central Station on February 26, 2012, which is also our boxer pup's birthday. So much happiness and celebration filled in a twenty-nine day period!

Corrine and I weren't planning on getting each other "big" gifts because of all of the wedding planning, but we couldn't help ourselves. Cori bought me a piece of jewelery because I am a sucker for anything sparkly and I bought her tickets to an acrobatic show that she's been wanting to see since she's heard about it.

Wishing everyone a day filled with love, happiness, compassion, and kindness, and remember, Valentine's Day is not just for lovers! xoxo

One of our favorite love quotes:

Originally humans were combined of 4 arms, 4 legs, and a single head made of 2 faces, but Zeus feared their power and split them all in half, condemning them to spending their lives searching for the other half to complete them.
