Cindy & Celeste celebrated their own way on Saturday the 29th. They threw an Agreement of Commitment party at a beach house in Lincoln City, Oregon. I have to say for “making it up” you two did a fantastic job! We had so much fun and can’t wait to get together the next time we come to Portland. Here is how they met and fell in love in Celeste’s own words. 🙂
Making It Up As We Go Along
We met while Cindy was working at my school, subbing long term for a teacher who had broken her hip. I had a huge crush on Cindy right away, but she had no idea. She just thought that I was “that red girl” because I turned tomato red every time I saw her. We discovered how great our chemistry was a few months later over drinks and conversation in a southeast Portland bar called North. We’ve been together ever since.
We like to make it up as we go along. A couple of years ago, we wanted rings to show our commitment to each other, but didn’t want to call them wedding rings. So Cindy came up with AOC, agreement of commitment. We filed for a domestic partnership in August, and I decided to change my last name. So this is the next step in our ever-evolving AOC.
Please feel free to leave us a comment or share with friends & family. We will be posting more story telling photos this week!
