June 20, Bellingham, WA: Today was beautiful, and the wedding was great ( http://www.danaseye.com/gallery/8632462_BJRQR). I didn't feel at all self conscious about us, which is kind of new for me, especially in relatively unfamiliar social settings. I think I felt much more comfortable with myself; so, maybe that made all the difference. Being a bit different in some important ways is clearly necessary for me to have a successful relationship. I have always felt so pressured to embody those differences...instead of feeling encouraged. Its pretty easy to argue that it was someone else creating that pressure, but I think the unrealistic expectations were probably my own.
