    and obviously, the photos are fabulous.

  2. Wow! Dream world.

    Robin, I am in love with your wedding photography! You make everything magical.

  3. My own peice of gay happiness: I finally came out to my brother, and hes cool with it!!! Said hes a little sad I won’t experience a family (I’ll work on him with that) but that he doesn’t find me disgusting and he won’t cut me off! I love family who aren’t biased bigots <3

    • I came out to my parents this weekend. They basically said “no biggy, we’ve known for ages. You seeing anyone at at the mo?”

      Guess they know me better than I thought they did <3

      • Yaya for awesome families everywhere <3 my brother was scarily silent a moment, then said "yeah, I always thought so"

        Thanks TSwizzle! <3 rainbows and ponies for everyone!

  4. HEY! I added to the lesbian happiness-in-the-world quotient! I went to the DC courthouse and got my marriage license this week. And it was totally anti-climatic! No protesters! No long lines! I faced the bureaucracy and I SIGNED ON THE DOTTED LINE!

  5. Hmm.. quotient is not the word I wanted. I think I wanted “sum.” Damn you math, damn you to hell.

  6. Hey all,
    This is Helena, half of the “lesbian happiness” mentioned in this piece. We wanted to give a shout-out to Robin Roemer (she’s the one who captured all the bliss so well). Also, big thanks to everyone for their sweet comments. You’ve made us both feel all warm and fuzzy. Finally, and most important, huge congrats to everyone who’s come out or gotten married this week–keep that gay-happiness going!!!
