When I am having a bad day, there are several sites on the internet I visit to cheer myself up. There are a few go-to videos on YouTube that I find absolutely hilarious and there are several websites I visit to bring back my calm.
Because I am in love and can’t get enough of seeing others in love, one of my other favorite past times is the website a bicycle built for two. It is a website that boasts “real wedding inspiration for lesbians, queers, and everyone else.” It is filled with the most glorious pictures of engagement photos and wedding photos. Sure, it’s a resource for planning a wedding, with lots of information on vendors, etc. but it’s the photography that I love.
The pictures of couples in love make my day. I know what I have with Erin and how we feel about one another and I can see the same thing in most of these photos and I LOVE THEM!
Sometimes when I hear or see people who are anti-marriage equality, I want to send them the link and ask them, what is so wrong about this? What can possibly be wrong with two consenting adults who are in love making a long term commitment with each other? Now I’m biased, but I would think seeing some of these pictures would make a homophobe’s heart grow two times its size (a la the Grinch).
If you have never visited it before, please do. You will not be disappointed.

All of a sudden, LGBT couples and families had to figure out how to file jointly when it came to taxes, how to add...

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.
The same can be said of other...
