It’s time to start thinking about the advent calendar you’ll to make for your loved ones (OR YOURSELF) (if we can go to the movies alone we can make our own advent calendars) (also look at this). What will you put in it this year??? Maybe vitamins. Maybe we should all get more vitamins.

Honestly I originally wanted to share this for the incredible headline that I hoped you’d whisper to yourself when times got tough: Lesbian Couple Set Their Wedding Dresses on Fire in Breathtaking Ceremony. (Amen.) Then I read April’s Facebook post and that’s the best part, so now you can read it too!

I am far more likely to be killed because of marrying another woman than I was from being set on fire.
Let that sink in.

  1. I know the catchy title wasn’t the main point of todays installment, but i got to see the stars perform a few years ago and the lead singer gave the most heart-full thank you to her fans and she had her kid come on stage and dance and it made me less scared to transition from angsty teen to adult with responsibilities.

    Also, the frozen pizza link just added a lot to my life. Thank you!

  2. I’m in totally uncontrollable fangirl mode about that photo, and her message even more so.

    Also really happy Jessica Kellgren-Fozard is getting a degree, I only discovered her recently and I love her, I’m hearing impaired myself and she does great work. Also, I totally thought I was femme till I saw her….

  3. The burning wedding dresses!! So epic & incredible. But also, did y’all peruse her instagram? April Choi is also a “master whip artist” … there’s got to be some kink in that!

    (Oddly enough, I don’t quiet get my kink-dar pinged when I’m looking through, but come on. There must be right!?)
