my bf gave me the biggest surprise of my life this weekend.
first, all my friends and family showed up at our weekend place near santa barbara for my 50th. only the second surprise bday in my life and the first was not exactly a surprise. this caught me completely off guard. i had friends from east coast, hawaii, washington, alabama, vegas. quite impressed. but it got better
next, he told me we were all staying overnight, 30 of us, in tents.
then, on sunday, after breakfast, we surprised all the guests by getting married. we have been partners for 14 yrs and had a commitment ceremony 3 yrs ago, but now that gay marriage is legal, at least for the time being, we are legally married. we had applied for a license right after it became legal, so we were already prepared. my brother just became a reverend, so he performed the ceremony. it was on the property, our vowels were whitman and rumi poems. he had a cake from the cake divas. i'm still reeling.
the only drawback about the whole amazing weekend was i never got time to work on the WIP, a cable shawl for his grandmother's bday in august.
thanks for indulging my excitement.
