How To Hug A Porcupine

The nursery theme is still a hot topic in our household. While many of you voted in our earlier poll, there is a new contender on the race. A lovable purple bundle of joy that just wants to be hugged. We put the author and graphic designer, Mr. Carnevali, to the test to see if infants take his prickly-creation which is featured in his pre-published book, How To Hug A Porcupine. Well, a picture is worth a 1000 words.

You passed the test with flying colors... purple, that is.

We're getting Married

Dear Friends,
Chris and I are headed to California on August 8th (yes, 08/08/08) to legalize our 11 year relationship in front of a JP.

Despite the recent California Supreme Court decision that denying same-sex couples the right to marry is unconstitutional, efforts are underway throughout the country to take away rights from same-sex couples. Chris and I just joined thousands of others in showing our support for marriage equality for all. But recently, proponents of bigotry and hate collected even more signatures in an attempt to invalidate the California Supreme Court decision. And they won't stop with California - extremists are even trying to add a ban of marriage for same-sex couples to the U.S.Constitution. We are at a turning point in our nation's history and I'm hoping you'll join me in standing up against discrimination.

Please sign the Million for Marriage petition and get us one name closer to showing that Americans overwhelmingly support marriage equality! Every committed couple deserves to enjoy the privileges and responsibilities conferred by marriage. Add your name to the petition and be a part of the movement to fight for marriage equality for all.

Thank you!
