I will forever remember my 'Coming Out Day', but to be honest, finally being honest about who you are and starting a new journey is a process and I kind of always feel like every day I'm learning something new and still 'coming out' in many ways.
These last eight months have been amazing. I have learned so much about myself and discovered so many wonderful things about my community.
This week Mia got married to her love - and The Boy and The Girl were 'ring bearers' in their wedding. A LEGAL same-sex marriage which took place in Washington. It was truly amazing, to point of tears, to see these two people get legally married.
Mia is one of my closest friends in my community and we were friends before she started dating Her Love - so I've been lucky enough to watch their relationship grow, be apart of the excitement of them falling in love - and then we all stood next to them when they signed those documents. It was really cool.
I made Mia's bouquet - she wanted pink and yellow, so I went with vintage style pink roses, pink lillies and yellow roses. The lillies were for me.... :) You all know why. And then she wanted something 'unique', yet simple and small - so I laced up the stems and added two charms: one for France and one for Italy, which are two of their favorite places. The charms can be taken off and warn on a necklace later.... I hope that was unique enough. lol
I hope, whatever journey you are on in your life, that you able to honest with yourself and live in happiness. It took me a long time to get where I am, and I still have to much farther to go.
Thanks for being with me.....
