A Union

This pumpkin was (grown) and carved by Debby Chappell
in honor of a small ceremony held last night
to make Renee and my 17 year relationship official.

We both feel such gratefulness for the efforts made
in this country to make this possible and
for the love and support being offered by so many.

I didn't expect the warm safe feeling
that has come along with all this.

Thank you.


  1. Congratulations to the two of you! And best wishes for many more fulfilling years ahead.

  2. Happy day!

    Carl and I were together for 16 years before we were married. I had a friend who married her partner after 20 years. The week after I was married and she told me her story she said (and I always think of these words) "Marriage is like life, only sweeter." I couldn't agree more. Cheers to you and Renee. May your many days together be sweet.

  3. Congratulations, Kyra... this makes me really happy. XO, Rhea
