The road less traveled

Sara and I went leaf peeping this past weekend in the town of Guilford, VT. The bed and breakfast we stayed at couldn't have been in a more picturesque locale. Our room's balcony faced the rapidly flowing Green River, the front faced an old church and red covered bridge near a gorgeous man made waterfall. Classic Vermont.

Sometimes Sara just feels the need to spontaneously bust out in interpretive dance.

And sometimes I like to hang out in dark bridges.

I like this one of trees reflected on the water. I don't know if it works. But I like it.

Thank you Connecticut!

In an historic decision Friday, the CT Supreme Court decided that it will not discriminate against the gay community any longer. Gays now have the right to marry. The court said civil unions did not offer enough protection. Connecticut is now the third state to legalize gay marriage, behind Massachusetts and California. So far the world hasn't gone to hell because of these rulings. What a shock.

Here are some photos from the rally Friday night.

Sara's first big gay rally! Lately she's been the poster child of equality. She is even from the Equality State!

This crowd was amazing. It was young and old people, gay couples with children, and supportive parents of gays. When I saw the sign that said "Proud Mom" I lost it.

The media frenzy...

For those of you CT residents who know and love us, please consider this when you get to the polls Nov. 4th. Regardless of who you vote for this election, PLEASE VOTE "NO" on the Constitutional Convention. Our future may depend on it...

Gay marriage for CT!

In honor of today's ruling, here's my favorite picture of Sara and I. Sara is the one girl who has made me the happiest I could ever be. Did I say EVA? Eva. For realz. Sara is kind, compassionate, loving, encouraging and everything I could ever ask for in a partner/ girlfriend/ other half. And now our state has no other option but take us seriously in the future as we grow old together. See you at the rally!
