What an incredible week this has been! Minnesota is the 12th state to legalize gay marriage! The countdown is on! Monday was the long haul at the capitol where people crowded together, emotions running high as they awaited the final verdict. My friend and fellow photographer Cadence was there too and captured some truly amazing photos! Her photos inspired me so much… and then I thought, “what the heck am I doing?! Sitting at home in front of my computer? It’s time to get out there and live girl!” So that’s what Tim and I did! Of course it was the hottest day of the year so far at 90+ degrees! That’s how Minnesota rolls, one days she’s 35 degrees and the next she’s 95! Tuesday afternoon was the signing of the bill at the capitol by governor Mark Dayton, followed by a parade of extremely happy people (including my friend and awesome florist Frank and his partner of Best Wishes Floral) through the streets of downtown St. Paul. It felt so awesome to be able to take part in such a wonderful historical event! I am just so happy for everyone right now!
