fridays are fucking fabulous

6 Aug

real quick….cause i’m about to get on a plane. this weekend is all about celebrating love. and as many qualms as i have with marriage and all that it represents there is still the sentimental gal in me that likes to see two people coming together to say, yes we really love each other and want to DO this. and in light of judge walker’s decision on wednesday, i’m feeling a lot better about marriage indeed.

i printed out his entire 136 page ruling so that i can go over it on the plane this afternoon. there is some good stuff in it for sure. you can read it here. already brought tears to my eyes.

this is the weekend that best friend gets married. this has been troubling for me in many ways, but i feel like i’m finally getting over it. it doesn’t feel nearly as devastating as it did before. and god bless best friend for not hanging up on me when i burst into tears when she told me she was getting married.  those were not tears of joy. and she knew it.

in a time when there is so much talk about who should be married and why and who’s god says what, i am happy to be witness to a union that has little to do with god or rights and more to do with two people who have come together because they love each other and they want to be joined together in some sort of symbolic (and financially beneficial) way. i support it.

and although i’d like to keep up my mature facade, i just can’t help but post this picture, because it’s awesome.
