Come What May

"I can't even with you."

That's what Dustin said to me as I handed him back his phone after reading the messages that our surrogate sent him saying she would like to officially "match," with us...cause I did it like Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge in the Indian song towards the end of the movie, I walked out like... you know what, like this.

Matching: The term used when a surrogate and intended parents agree to move forward with each other into the wild and crazy world of pregnancy.

So we're moving forward with her.  We're excited. Though I'm really trying to keep our feet on the ground.   I'm excited but just trying to keep my expectations low for now.  I hear a lot of stories on how the process goes for people, so I don't want to get ahead of myself.

On top of all this...I'm starting a work schedule to provide 24 hour coverage for The Weather Channel's programming of Hurricane Matthew.  Its going to be a long week/weekend.  Looks like the forecast has been updated and now parts of South Florida are under Hurricane and Tropical Storm Warnings.  Ugh. I hope people are prepared.

Time for bed.

We took a picture to mark the occasion.  A lot of people post and share their stories today.  Sharing their struggles and their triumphs over the hurdles, or even walls, surrounding the ability to live their truths.  Dustin and I have very different stories of our coming outs.  He's been living his truth for just about a decade before I came out to my family and more importantly to myself.  Coming out is not for everyone and today is certainly not meant to give you anxiety about coming out or not. You might find yourself in a variety of situations; from being a public personality, a conservative family, your own fears and so many other possibilities. Its not always easy.  For some, yes, its easy, you grow up in a family where you know without a shadow of a doubt that you'll be accepted for who you are.  We know, better than most, that its different for everyone.  Most of all, you do you, we'll be her

Every project starts with an idea and a plan. Stay tuned, the domain is just the start...

What's in a name?...(~2 months old)

     I meant to write and post this a month ago...needless to say, we've been busy. Its not easy to write up a blog post these days. I'm not complaining. Its awesome.      A little over two months ago, we named our first-born son, John Robert Tidwell-Davidson.  Some people asked where the names came from.  I hesitated to post and explain right away because, well...we don't have to.  It was today as we start shutting down January that I wanted to get it out. Not because anyone has asked, but because his name is important and the stories should be told. Let's start with his first name... John -      My grandfather. John Daniel Chester. An inspirational, traditional and yet avant-garde man who was one half of the men (my dad being the other) that helped shape who I am today.  My grandfather was born in the 1920s. Was in the Navy, worked in the health physics department at Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island. Was active in the community, was th
