Surprise! Thanks, St. Paul's Friends

Every Thursday morning at 7:30 AM, the faculty at St. Paul's Episcopal School meets for a "faculty meeting", but today was just a little different, for out came a beautiful cake and a gift from my wonderful, supportive colleagues.

I joke that after almost 30 years of teaching, I have given my share of birthday and wedding gifts, so I never thought I'd see the day when the adulation would be directed at me (and Jeff). It does my heart good to feel loved and accepted by such an awesome group of co-workers. I am certain not all same-sex couples would receive the same love and affection from their place of business. I do count my blessings daily.

Thank you, St. Paul's faculty and staff!

And thanks again to all my readers and followers for your well-wishes. J and I are quite happy to be married.

It's a SURPRISE, y'all!


  1. That makes my heart so happy. You are right not everywhere is same-sex marriage accepted and not only accepted but celebrated. Pretty cake too!

  2. This is so sweet and awesome Ron. I am so glad you have those wonderful colleagues and friends at work. This is where you spend a lot of your time in life so it is good when you have wonderful peeps around you. That cake is beautiful. Isn't it wonderful to have close friends and co workers that accept you and Jeff as a couple. In a world where things are so negative it is good to know there are people in our circles that accept us and love us for who we are. Beautiful group you have around you. Congrats again to you and Jeff.
    Happy Friday. Yeah Weekend!

  3. This is so well-deserved, Ron. Thank goodness for progressive thinking communities such as where you are! That cake is great. Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. Good morning, Ron! You definitely have a great group of people that you work with! The cake is beautiful, and I'm dying to know what is in that box from Little Miss Muffin! Congratulations again to you and Jeff! Have a great day! Cheers! xoxo

  5. Congratulations once again! Wishing you and Jeff many, many happy years together. Ron, you have some fabulous colleagues. My great-nephew and his longtime love were married in Florida last summer at his parents' home. Tyler is a sweetie and a marvelous and creative cook. xoxo

  6. Wow, what a special gift and what wonderful colleagues you have!!!!! Congratulations....such great news!!!!
