It seems crazy that it's been so long...
Today is my and Jerame's anniversary. We've been together for 12 years now - a full dozen.
We've had our ups and downs like any other couples, but we've also faced quite a bit of adversity head on as a team and I'd like to think we've come out of the situations as better people.
We've raised a daughter together, put Jerame through college, worked ungodly jobs to support the family, spoken out and worked for LGBT rights in a less than hospitable climate, endured anti-gay discrimination together, and tried to make Indiana a more welcoming state for the other gays and lesbians who would follow us in the fight. We've tried to make the world a better place to the best of our abilities - and to challenge each other to live up to those ideals both personally and professionally.
As we start a new portion of our lives in Washington DC - Mecca for political types like us - I know we'll face any challenges just like we have for the past dozen years.
