Fall

It is starting to get cool here in Ohio, I love this time of year. I love the cool evenings and the leaves as they start to change. I love the first fires in the fire place, just to keep the chill out. I love raking a big pile of leaves and jumping in with the kids. I love love love Halloween and the harvest moon. I love everything about this time of year. My birthday is coming and I will be 35 this year. It was about this time 6 years ago that I decided to officially end my marriage(which had been over for years) and live my life as I should. I met my wife not long after and came screaming out of the closet. As I get ready to celebrate this year it is really a celebration of many things. My coming out, my birthday, my family and this year. this year I feel like I have really grown into the person that I can be. I know that I will grow and change more but this year I have become so in tune with who I am and what I want that I am glad it's a milestone birthday. I want to celebrate and be happy, I am at peace with myself and I think that has a lot to do with this wonderful community that I have found.the support and understanding that I get is amazing. so as I get ready to celebrate all that is good and right with my life I want to say thank you to you all for all that you do.

I can relate to this post a great deal! I also walked away from a marriage I had NO business being in...but I had dated women before getting married for my family's sake. Big mistake. Fall is here and while some people look at is as a sign of death, I see it as a homey, warm, cuddle up time of the year! I just may have to write on this topic today!

Hey you're part of this community so right back at you too. Love this place.

There are times when everything lines up just right and the feelings brought by it are indescribable. Sounds like you're at one of those points right now and I'm so happy for you. Have a great birthday or better yet, make it into a birthmonth.

Cheers Queer!
