Great day to be out and about celebrating my birthiversary (birthday + anniversary). In celebration of the birthday part, found this photo a good friend took of me looking like a goddess of Fiestaware. Silly photo, but definitely looks like my day.
My day was about tea at the new London Tea Room location. Natalie and I had the afternoon tea for our anniversary, which was lovely. New location a thumbs up (all six of them if you are looking at the above photo). My beautiful wife even gave me a new piece of bling to add to my collection. I have been wanting a black diamond circle pendant for awhile, and she decided since the garage I really want isn't coming anytime soon the pendant would have to do. We took a double selfie to commemorate the day and you can see how dreadful we are at selfies. Natalie looks like she is snorting the phone. However, notice new bling around my neck.
Last year on our anniversary we were married in fewer states and were unrecognized as spouses by both our employers. This year we are up to 17 states and both our jobs say yes this is a family. Even the federal government says this is a photo of a legally married couple.
We have come a long way since we were married 3 years ago. Next year it will be even better with more states and more wins in the same-sex equality column. And who knows maybe next year I will get a garage for my birthiversary.
