National Coming Out Day

I totally didn't even realize today was national coming out day!

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 here welcoming you with open arms either way.

Rather than go into our stories, here, I think I'm going to make it one of the topics we discuss in our first podcast coming up this week.

This weekend is Pride in Atlanta and its going to be so super awesome!

I hope we get to make a new version of this photo this year with our son!

Stan Fong took this at the exact moment I ran up behind Dustin (almost getting punched) to show the people with bullhorns and ugly signs what love is.

We're going to have a pretty exciting post coming up this week with pictures and videos from The Georgia Aquarium kickoff Party, the events in Piedmont Park Saturday and walking in the parade Sunday and OF COURSE the debut of the podcast!! 

Check back here next week for the podcast post and get alerts from our Instagram account!

Week 24: Viability...

A lot has happened in the last month...seriously A LOT. "So why did you wait so long to post, Ryan?? "  Because I was busy!  Schedule changes at work, pushing hard to get our renovations finished, baby showers, renovations, much happening. Let's start with travel....I don't want to bury the lead story here. We went up to Wisconsin for our 21 week anatomy scan.  Dustin flew up on a Wednesday for the Thursday morning appointment. Unfortunately July is a big vacation month for my department, and save for asking co-workers to change their vacation plans with their families...I stayed behind. It was going to be hard, but I kept telling myself that its just pictures. I will have the REST of my life to spend with Beastie.  This is a cool appointment, but its just an internal photo shoot.  What really sucked was that they wouldn't be able to shoot any pictures or video in the ultrasound room.       Fast forward to the morning of the appointment.  I tex
