Happy Anniversary (To Me)

Tonight, I celebrate my love: Eight years ago we were married as best as the regressive United States will allow, in a beautiful civil union in Vermont, surrounded by 40 of our dearest.Ayhan and I began our evening with wine on the rooftop of our building, 10 stories overlooking Brooklyn on one side and Manhattan's skyline on the other.It was a beautiful summer night, with the sun just peaking in the distance, as Lady Liberty waved our way, wondering when the U.S. is going to truly become the land of the free, with liberty and justice for all.Dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Manhattan's Elmo in Chelsea.The staff could not have been more gracious, bringing us champagne on the house to celebrate.Homeward bound.
