I woke up this morning to the beautiful news that the Supreme Court of the United States had officially declared marriage is indeed a right for all.

All day long I have been weeping tears of gladness, my heart bursting with joy that my future children will be born in a land that legally recognizes all love as being equal.

That they will have the right to marry whomever they choose, no matter which state they live in.

That they will look at me with confusion and probably horror when I tell them that, not so long ago, marriage wasn't legal for everyone. 

And that my wedding will take place in a country that recognizes all marriage as being legal and meaningful.

I've been meaning to tell you: a couple of weeks ago, Evan and I got engaged. 

We had been talking about it for a long time. We were both ready--respectively, and as a couple.

I have never loved another person as much as I love Evan, nor have I ever been this sure about anything. I've never been someone who yearned for marriage in general, but I know with all my heart that I want to marry him. And I'm going to.

Every person deserves to have that option. 

To celebrate this joyous day (which also happens to be the start of Pride weekend in San Francisco!), I made fruit salad. 

Early summer produce is looking especially ripe and juicy these days.

It made the most beautiful rainbow.

The beauty of fruit is that there are so many options to get this symbolic color combination. Raspberries could replace the strawberries, orange slices could be swapped in for the apricots, yellow peaches could stand in for the bananas, kiwis could take over for the mint, and blackberries or boysenberries could fill in the bottom of the rainbow.

These fruits could also be baked into a tart, perhaps a goat cheese one, or served as part of a cheese platter.

However you make your rainbow, I hope it brings you a taste of the love and sweetness I am feeling. Today is a truly joyous day. 

Happy Pride!
