Today marks our 6 year Wedding Anniversary! /U.S. Supreme Court Rules for Marriage Equality!

An anniversary card we like
Today, June 26, marks our 6 year Wedding Anniversary! 
**UPDATE- Today, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage is the law of the land for all 50 U.S. States and U.S. Territories. What an amazing Anniversary present. We can now move/live anywhere and have security**

Because our marriage wasn't legal in Maryland at the time, we had to go to Connecticut, the nearest state where it was legal. My (Rob) brother Doug suggested Bridgeport as a good city to get married in, and the restaurant he was recommended became the place we took our vows (instead of outside in a park). Our friend Jeff was our best man and came up with us. Our friend Mike married us! 

It's been another year of dog rescue work, ghost investigating, book tours, gardening, dog training, Dunkin' Donuts, weather watching, reading U.K. history and mysteries, a great Ireland vacation, and lots of blogging. :)

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
