The Family Friday series from Huffington Post’s Gay Voices continued today with the story of Marquita and Christa. This young married couple from Georgia just had their first child. The adorableness quotient with these this family is through the roof.
Head over to Huffpo for the full story of how they met, the memories they treasure most, and a great slide show of family pictures!
She sent me two dozen of my favorite flowers, and a dozen chocolate covered strawberries. I was under the impression that all of this was just for Valentine’s Day, which was a few days away. Later on that evening, we went to a friend’s birthday dinner at her house. I was ready to go home and sleep because it had been a long work week. Christa said, “I have a question.” I was hoping she was asking, if I was ready to leave but instead she put that little blue box on the table and dropped to one knee! We were engaged for one year before we exchanged vows and rings in front of our closest family & friends.
