Yesterday was the first day that same-sex marriages were celebrated in the District. (Couples could apply for licenses starting on the 3rd, but the District has a mandatory 3-day waiting period for all couples). Imagine my joy when I watched the video accompanying this article this morning of three of the first weddings and saw… the woman who previously owned our house! Lorilyn (also known as Candy) Holmes, the woman wearing the black suit in the image you see, was the seller of our house, which had been her childhood home. It’s a small (and this week, quite happy) world.
