Marriage equality in Minnesota... just got real

Minnesota celebrated an amazing victory this week! 

This huge victory comes just 6 months after we successfully voted NO to an amendment that would have permanently and constitutionally limited the freedom of gays and lesbians to ever marry in Minnesota.

My daughter proudly wore her "Vote NO" shirt to school, to church, to the store...

Here we are only 6 months after shooting down that ridiculous amendment and our governor, Gov Mark Dayton, has signed the bill legalizing gay marriage.

Senator Scott Dibble (Bill author) watches as Governor Dayton signs the bill

A few friends were able to visit the state capitol this week. They graciously allowed me to use their photos here.

Both Michael and Pastor Kayla are HUGE HUGE advocates for gay rights. Bless them and everyone else who helped make dreams come true this week.

Minnesota just got a whole lot AWESOMER (yep, I know it's not a word)! 

Let us be a role model.
