I like the way the light is hitting that thing over there.
🗽 17 years in the making!
I came back to New York last night and found this waiting for me, along with holiday cards from many of the people who helped me get here in one way or another. Thank you for offering to marry me, for taking me into your homes and letting me be part of your families, for helping with legal research, for giving career advice and sharing your networks, for your cockamamie schemes, for celebrating every successful step forward, and for just being my friend whenever it looked like things might take a turn for the worse. It feels like a lifelong weight has been lifted. Happy new year!
Celebrating @_mabanta, and this fam's first Christmas together in 16 years (!)
