Wedding on the water

This is the boat Annie and I will married on.

We're doing a one-hour tour of the bay in Santa Cruz with our small group of guests. Afterward, there will be time to take a quick roller coaster ride for those so inclined. Then we'll have dinner in a special outdoor spot at our favorite Italian restaurant.

After dinner, family and friends are invited to join us in the large suite at our favorite ocean-view inn. Maybe we'll even take a night beach walk.

What I'm most thrilled about is this wedding is so us. It's casual and fun, it features the ocean and sea otters and lasagne, and it's a small production. I wish I could invite you all, but as I said, a small family-centered production is very us (besides, we're both teachers, which means we ain't rich!).

In lieu of gifts, we've registered with Equality California, the group that has done a lot to make marriage equality happen. If you're interested in donating, go here. Click on "Make a Gift" and fill out all your information. At the bottom of the page, click on the drop-down mnus next to "THE HAPPY COUPLE IS" to find Tobin/Evans.

Here's to love.

Thanks, all. It's amazing to be marrying the woman I've loved for 14 years, my soul mate.

Liz: The book being published is my novel, not my memoir. But I sure hope the memoir finds a home soon.
