People, indulge me for just a minute (well, as you always do). Something really monumental just happened in New York and I’m sitting here bawling my eyes out. Finally, FINALLY, my state legalized same sex marriage. It has been a battle from start to finish and I can’t believe it’s finally happened. It really came down to the wire: the last day of legislative session and the vote went down 33-29. As I’ve mentioned, I’m away this weekend at a wedding and it’s an added joy to know that now ALL my friends who want to get married will be able to. I’m going to go fucking broke buying wedding gifts and I couldn’t be happier about it. This just means so much to me, I can’t even tell you. I’m so emotional right now. I’m going to have a drink to celebrate. I wish I was in NYC tonight because on top of everything else, it’s Pride Weekend and the city must be going absolutely nuts right now.
(Thanks to watishista! notoriusjk who sent me the gorgeous shot of the Empire State Building lit up in rainbow colors – it’s so beautiful!)
