Hooray for Illinois!

This is a pretty big deal!  Illinois has been fighting for same-sex marriage rights for a while now and victory is finally ours!

Get it, girls!

Many thanks go out to all of the hardworking men and women who donated time and energy to getting this historic vote.  I have friends who have worked on equality campaigns and driven to Springfield to talk to our representatives about this issue.  Progress couldn’t be made without sacrifice and I am so proud to be in the 15th state that has legalized gay marriage.  Sure, it’ll be a few months before gay couples can start walking down that aisle but this is such a momentous time for us that nothing can damper our spirits.  Also, now I can start placing bets on the gay couples I know to see who will officially wed first!  Seriously though, this is an important time for our state and country.  Hopefully one day I’ll tell my children about a world that no longer exists – a world where people couldn’t marry each other based on sex and gender.  That world is on its way out and I’m excited to be around for this change!
