firesea: self-portrait

Unto us let fall success!

So yes, the rumors are true - yesterday I married lordandrei; a Gnostic Mass followed by a ceremony that we wrote ourselves. All in all it was lovely - the perfect ratio of making sure we had what we wanted while keeping the stress and complexity low. Afterwards we all went out to dinner and I had the best damn crab leg dinner in the world.

Today we saw my mother off to the airport, watched tv, played some poker, and lazed about a lot. It's been a good weekend :)

Oh, and we have both taken a new family name. It won't be legal for a while, as Andrei has to jump through all sorts of legal hoops to change his before I can take the bridal shortcut, but we're using it socially/informally as of now. The name is Freeman. We chose it for its etymology of "free man" and its connections to the philosophy of Thelema. (From the EGC Baptism ritual: "Every man and every woman is a star. We are all born free, independent, shining gloriously, each one a radiant world, according to the Law of Liberty."

For more details see lordandrei's journal. I'll post more later, perhaps, but for now am enjoying the relaxation too much to bother ;)
