Anniversary in Asheville

July 25, 2010

Well, the wedding is canceled. We were going to go to DC to get legally married, but it will take DC 12 weeks to officialize the person who we want to officiate us and we only started 4 weeks early. Maybe we will get hitched around Thanksgiving time instead. I am kind of disappointed not to follow-through on the crazy plan to get legally married every year on our anniversary until our faces turned blue or the federal government recognizes same sex marriage — whichever came first. But, the heart of that goal is showmanship. Not very relaxing to have a wedding every anniversary.

We were also going to try to accomplish a bunch of stuff in DC  — background checks for foster care, maybe try to get a job interview or two going, visit an old boss, visit 17 friends and co-workers, etc. etc.  As we were deciding to go to Asheville, I felt a weight lifting. We never take actual vacations. Our vacations are always multitasking. It will just be us. It will just be relaxing. We really relax us.

So, yes, we are going to a bed and breakfast. In Asheville, for 3 nights and 4 days. It’s called Hill House. We will be staying in the S  & W room. I am especially excited by the “African and animal prints and decor “, as well as the bottomless cookie jar. I’ve never stayed in a bed and breakfast before. After seeing the on-line video in which the proprietors give us a tour of the home and introduce us to their dog, I am sure it will be very pleasant —  if staid.

But hey, I can do staid. I am, after all, a married woman. For just about a year, I think it’s been now.

    Look into getting the person you want to marry you licensed as a minister with http://www.themonastery.org/. It takes 5 minutes to become ordained, is free, and should take way less than 8 weeks to get officialized in another state. I have legally married friends in 2 states this way.

      yeah thats the one we used . . . its taking 12 weeks appparently. and a signature from another ordained person (in delaware) to verify it all. DC can be . . . different.
