We’ve got a life here
We’ve made a home here
We’ve struggled for this peace
We’ve reached beyond our reach
And no one can ever take that away
I know that I love you
I know I was meant to
You lead I will follow
You speak and I’ll know
To me the truth was always very clear
‘Cause we’ve got a life here.”
–Ben Wakeman, “We’ve Got A Life Here”

One year ago today, we stood in a crowded courtroom, in front of friends and lovers and total strangers, and made public and legal the committment we’d already made to one another.

Happy anniversary, love, this first of many.
