california dreamin’

we got legally married in massachusetts in august 2005, a few weeks before our big (illegal!) ceremony.  it was tiny and fun and we loved our justice of the peace.  but it didn’t feel like our real wedding.  i almost didn’t believe we were married afterwards.  i’ve gotten used to valuing our marriage in our own hearts and with the love and support of family and friends — but i think i’ve learned to try to make that enough.  the idea of having the support of a greater community – society at large, even strangers – is amazing to me.  on an intellectual level, it’s amazing that anyone cares enough to stop me and d from getting married.  but in my heart, it’s incredible to imagine – strangers – supporting our relationship.

it’s wonderful, but it’s almost scary.  many of us have built our relationship in a little cocoon, and when i allow myself to “go there,” it’s like a whole wide world blowing open.
