11 Years Together And Still Going Strong

I met my spouse in 2001. We were both waiting for our creative writing club to start. At first, I didn't think he'd like me, but at our very first meeting, we both realized we had a lot in common, like our love for "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," and our passion for writing fiction. 
He was bubbly, and cheerful, which was the exact opposite of who I was. But somehow, we grew closer each time we met. 
By November 25, 2001, we officially became a couple, and for the next 11 years, we've written, laughed, grieved, healed, and traveled together. We've also helped each other grow as human beings. 
One of the things we loved doing was going on road trips. Little did we realize that we'd be traveling all the way to Argentina several years later. We also never imagined that gay marriage would become legal, but it did, and as of this post, we've been legally married for 8 months.
So, in honor of our 11-year anniversary, I decided to share some photos of ourselves over the years. 


  1. You guys look so happy together. I'm a retired, American expat living in Nepal and found it to be a very 'gay friendly' country. Men hold hands and are seldom seen out in public with a lady. There is no social dialogue about it. So, as I look around at everyone I wouldn't know who is and who isn't; they all act gay to me. lol.

    I started thinking about what a lovely place Nepal would be for a gay honeymoon or a great place for gays to come for a vacation. There are strong laws against underage stuff, but I know that's not mainstream.

    I also write. I wrote a book to help Western tourists to come to Nepal and have a great time on less money. I'm beginning to think they only love us for our money, but Nepal is an amazing, budget vacation. Hope you come and guest blog.

  2. Hi Amanda,

    Thank you so much for your comment. Nepal sounds great! What's the name of your book. I'd like to go to Nepal someday for a vacation.
