The California Supreme Court had overturned the ban on gay marriages. You should know, that when the news hit, I was at my computer, hitting refresh on my New York Times browser. (I might like talking about weddings, but in real life, I’m a political junkie). I was so overjoyed that I teared up, and David is still reading all 108 pages of the decision.

As for me, I am winging my way down to Los Angeles for a very informal little engagement party in my parents delightful backyard, and then some time by the pool. Thank you for all your support this week, in comments and emails. Rebecca gave such excellent perspective on weddings and life when she said, "we all have to nurse some grief about losing our concept of how we hoped things would be and making the most of how things will have to be."
