Just got home. The event was full to the brim and spilling down the sides with courtesy. Surprisingly, it felt good to greet a few old friends (I’ve known some of the men for nearly 20 years). It will take me some time to process this, but I feel pretty damn fine at the moment.
Thank you, everyone, for your support. You rock so very hard.
The excommunication party has begun. These are the people who were on hand at 09:09pm. I feel so very loved–the mood is celebratory, like I just graduated or something!
Here’s the whole gang. I have the best friends in the world!
