Lexi in the woods

In brief...

...maybe not quite the soul of wit, but in the neighborhood:
  • 16:27 My phone keeps spontaneously turning off. Annoying. #
  • 17:12 Crying because I just realized it's after 5:00 and people are getting married RIGHT NOW who couldn't before and it makes me very happy. #

Nah, I'll pass on the Golden Gate Bridge t-shirt — I've got memories instead

I don't think I've ever stumbled into anything this wonderful while traveling:
Several feet away sat a couple on vacation from Ireland who happened to stumble on the historic event. Christine Yearsley said she planned to stay at City Hall the rest of the afternoon to witness as much as she could.

"This gentleman just told me there are two elderly ladies who are getting married today after being together for 50 years," she said. "They're obviously committed! I think it's terrific. They're an example for heterosexuals, I think."
Yeah, I'd have spent the rest of the day hanging out at City Hall too, I think.
