Dear California,

I apologize for being a few days late in my letter. It is a bad habit of mine to always be a little delayed with thank you notes.

Regardless, thank you, California. I can’t tell you how wonderful it felt to wake up next to my partner and hear the news that another state stood up to refocus and recenter definitions of equality despite the lack of support from most of your neighbors. I wish you all the best in the coming months and hope that your brilliantly beautiful decision is met by nothing other than love and wedding mixes with Cher songs. Like Massachusetts, you are a hero of a state to me. Hopefully, the other 48 are listening.

Thanks again.
