Our family celebrates many anniversaries. September 1st is the day Jenn and I “married” in lavish gowns while our guests ate chocolate covered fruits and danced to Baby Got Back. July 30th is the day we passed through metal detectors to renew our vows before a judge. October 15th is the day we met. April 4th is the day Jenn adopted the Bean and the Bear. November 21st marks our first date and the day I adopted the Bean and the Bear.
Though we don’t celebrate them, August 12th was the day we became the first same-sex co-guardians in our conservative home county and August 3rd is the day we flushed $125 down the toilet to become registered domestic partners in our home state.
There is one anniversary that surpasses all others. Today. February 4th.
