I mentioned on our Instagram a couple of days ago I was putting the final touches on a post about who Kevin & I have chosen as our wedding photographers. And while that post is coming, in light of the ever escalating current events, and after all that has happened in Charlottesville, I felt the need to pause the wedding talk and address these very real issues. We’ll be back to our “regularly scheduled programming” soon because I do honestly believe that love and happiness are ultimately what will change the world, but first, I need you, my blog friends, to know a few things:
I believe your legacy is important and your story deserves to be told. No matter what country you were born in. No matter the color of your skin, your age, or who you choose to love (or the myriad of other ways we identify ourselves in a census).
I believe tradition, no matter the religion, is beautiful.
I believe diversity makes our communities better.
I believe that you can define “family” however you like. Chosen, biological, blended or furry, the true definition of family, to me, is a group of people who love you no matter what and who you love just as fiercely back.
I believe in learning from people who aren’t like me. I believe in learning the man’s name who sits outside and asks for money. Because I’m just as human as he is.
Most of all, I believe love is love. And it’s really as simple as that.
“Civilization is a stream with banks. The stream is sometimes filled with blood from people killing, stealing, shouting and doing the things historians usually record,
while on the banks, unnoticed, people build homes, make love, raise children, sing songs, write poetry and even whittle statues.“
