The Other Half and I were married in Palm Springs, California yesterday afternoon. We were lucky enough to have some dear friends with us to share the event, and the support of our families and circle of friends. It was at once a subdued, simple and elegant affair. And other than some (somewhat annual) wildfires, California still exists as it always has.
Our officiator in Palm Springs couldn't have been nicer or more respectful. Given our mutual distaste for being the center of attention, we were glad to have a nice, quiet ceremony. I don't think a big wedding would have suited either one of us. We'll be having a reception in a couple of weeks, and that we'll be happy to share with any of our friends and family who would like to participate (but no clinking of the glass for kisses, OK? Thanks!).
Hopefully, the non-earth shaking nature of these sorts of ceremonies will finally convince our more uptight neighbors to unclench, and just allow us to be. We ain't out for your husbands, kids or (in the most insulting inferences) dogs, so just live and let live, all righty? Thanks, much.
I'm sure that this topic will come up from time to time on the blog, but don't worry, it still won't be the focus. We'll be back to bitching about politics, and the occasional stupid video tomorrow! Good night, everybody!
