1-year anniversary


No, not me and Q (we're coming up on 2 years in June) - Massachusetts making gay marriages a reality.

iampunha wrote a lovely entry celebrating the day that I thought I'd share. Nicely done!

OK, screwy formatting, but there's a table in my reply if you scroll down. :)

Oh please - I work for the state! Cotton/poly blends at best! :P Me, I'd like some China...



;)

(This year he gets me moving across the country for him. Isn't that enough for God's sake? LOL!)

2013 should be an interesting year for the leather industry:)

Leather, which is the 9th anniversary gift in modern times.

Ah, you meant for Massachusetts marriages. I thought you were talking about me and Q. :)

As I was unaware that you two were married (oh, honey, I can't possibly be expected to keep track of all 80 million (give or take ... a few) of my friends' social developments), I did not:)

And now that today's 24-hour brain fart is complete (and at 7 AM, what's more. I do hope another one doesn't start before too soon), I see that in your own entry you noted your marriage anniversary.

I'll just be over here self-flagellating with the mega cluestick...

Aw, you're so cute. :P

(And no, we're not actually/technically married yet, but I do consider the day we met our anniversary since we're committed to each other - the actual ceremony will have to wait until he gets out of the Navy.)
