Last year I told the story of my first date with Beloved, on what was our three-year anniversary. You can read it here.

Tonight we will celebrate our four-year-anniversary. We are going to dinner with friends, and we are going to... a drag show. I am so excited. Not long ago we saw this film; if you have any fondness for any gay people in your life at all... do see it. At the screening we attended, the audience roared, cheering, multiple times throughout the show.

This year, big food and alcohol will not be a part of our anniversary celebrations (well, I believe Beloved may have a martini or some wine at the drag show...). Today I celebrate our anniversary about 40 lbs lighter than I was at this time last year.

Loving my life, one day at a time, by the grace of God.

Congrats on the anniversary- may you both continue to be richly blessed as you grow in love and commitment.

And 40 lbs - that is GREAT.

Have fun. I am adding that movie to my netflix list pronto!!

I have a funny drag show story that I have tried to write, but it demands telling so far.

One day, one day.

Happy, Happy Anniversary to you both!

And congratulations on losing 40 lb.! That's how much I'd like to lose, but I have not been as committed as you. I really applaud you! Good!

I've been out 9 years, and have YET to make it to a drag show. I'm pretty sure I'm missing out.

Congratulations you too! That rocks. :)

I've never been to a drag show, but I went to a strip club and stuck a dollar on a stripper's g-string once. Close enough?

She had to be in her 40s (judging by the skin on her back) and was beautiful. Beautiful. Because she loved what she did -- you could see it in every move she made up there.
