We started in the exact way a relationship like ours would start. With Lyn thinking Cassie was a jerk and Cassie thinking Lyn needed a shower. It took a few years, but eventually we were carried back to each other by the fates, or the fact that we live in a small town with a smaller viable gay community. After countless late nights, a few vacations, meeting the family and two adopted dogs later Lyn proposed to Cassie in a walkway filled with friends holding sparklers outside of the house they created a home together in. In April, we were married in front of 50 of our closest friends in Tulum, Mexico. Weddings brought us together; Lyn’s cooking, game nights, puppy kisses and Cassie’s dad jokes are what will keep us together for a lifetime.
