We've made honest men of each other









Peter and I were married at the DC Superior Court yesterday. After more than 30 years together it was marvelous to have our relationship legitimized in the eyes of the law. The setting, was tackier than anything in Vegas. The photo doesn't show the fake flower arbor we stood under. We were honored to have Peter's sister, Susan, and her husband, Bill, to stand with us along with our longest-known friends, Dana and Milton. We call each other "spouse" as opposed to "husband". I'm making a celebratory dinner tonight: steak done on my stovetop grill. We didn't eat dinner last night due to the quantity of lovely food we ate at the reception lunch (that's where we are in the second photo).

LMAO at the second picture because at first I didn't see the raised glasses and thought, "They're line dancing?!?!?" My bad:)
