I realized I was gay when I was 25 🏳️‍🌈 Looking back there were so many signs but I honestly didn’t see them in the moment. I felt different in a way that made me feel unknown to myself but I just couldn’t put my finger on what that part of me was. It took being on bed rest for the greater part of a year, recovering from an injury, to finally get the message my brain had been sending me for years! Everything suddenly made sense but it honestly was as terrifying as it was liberating 🤷🏻‍♀️ I felt like I had lived too much life as a “straight” person to suddenly have to come out as something else. That task felt daunting and scary, but also inevitable. Over a period of a few months I came out to family, friends, coworkers, etc. and it was a doozy. Things turned out well, but the process wasn’t always easy. However, I can’t possibly imagine my life any other way! I felt like I finally started living when I came out first to myself and then to the world ❤️ My number one advice for anyone coming out would be to do it when it feels most loving to you. Make sure you are safe and have a support system of supportive folks around you, and lastly, buckle up because your whole world is about to feel so much bigger 🫶🏼🏳️‍🌈 #globalgaygirlgang #pride #lgbt #lgbtq #lovewins #wlw #loveislove #loveisloveislove #lesbiansofig #queerlove #girlswhokissgirls #girlswholikegirls #comingout #comingoutstory #outandproud #samesexmarriage #samesexfamily #samesexcouple #lesbiancouple #lesbiancouples #lesbiancouplegoals #itsokaytobegay #lovemakesafamily #queercouple #twowives #mrsandmrs #marriedlesbians #lgbtlove

Realistic Grocery Haul 🥦🍋🥒🫑🍊🫐 $150/week budget at @wholefoods feeding two adults Y’all know we love food just as much as we love budgeting…so how do we buy all organic and still stay under budget? The answer—meal planning! (if you haven’t checked out our meal planning guide head to our story highlights for the details). Alexa is a wiz as meal planning! Once a week we sit down and write out all our meals for the week and use that to keep us in track at the grocery store. We have a few tricks that help keep us under budget each week 👇🏻 1. We eat mostly vegetarian - meat is expensive and there are other ways to get protein and really stretch your budget 2. Going to the store with a plan - meal planning has helped us cut impulsive grocery store spending and make sure the ingredients we buy are getting used 3. Cutting down on food waste - we plan our meals with similar ingredients to make sure we don’t have small amounts of things left over at the end of the week 4. Having fun with it - Alexa always makes a point to pick out new fun things to try…this week we’re trying Icelandic yogurt! These tricks have helped us so much and every week I’m blown away that we’re able to be under budget with our groceries because I definitely used to be one of those people who believed that eating all organic meant throwing your budget out the window completely! And it turns out with a little bit of planning it can be totally doable 🫶🏻 What’s your favorite grocery store to shop at? *disclaimer- all organic is a choice that we make as a family. However you chose to shop and feed your family is your choice and is respected 🙂 #samesexfamily #lesbianfamily #twomoms #twomomfamily #loveislove #wlw #wlwcouple #lesbiancouple #lesbianlifestyle #groceryhaul #wholefoods #queerlove #loveisloveislove #lgbtfamily #lgbtqfamily #globalgaygirlgang #marriedlesbians #lesbiansofig #lesbiancouplegoals #mrsandmrs #couplegoals #outandproud #queercouple #queercommunity #twowives #gayfamily #girlswhokissgirls

Life lately ✨🫶🏼🥰 Phew what a week! We’ve been having sooo much fun in the new year, here are some of our favorite moments: - We LOVE hockey games and this week went to the @capitals pride night 🏳️‍🌈 we even got to eat ice cream sundaes during the game 😂 - We replaced all of our kitchen appliances and I feel like a freaking queen! I can’t wait to cook more meals in our beautiful new space 👩🏼‍🍳 - I took Cass on a lovely introvert date day to buy some new books and check out a new cafe ☕️ - Tonight we are off to a Michelin restaurant (our Christmas gift to each other), so stay tuned for all the fabulous dishes ❤️ What are you looking forward to this weekend? 👇🏼 #globalgaygirlgang #pride #lgbt #lgbtq #wlw #lovewins #loveislove #loveisloveislove #lesbiansofig #lesbiancouple #lesbiancouplegoals #couplegoals #queercouple #twowives #wifeandwife #samesexcouple #samesexlove #samesexfamily #lgbtfamily #lesbianfamily #gayfamily #girlswhokissgirls #girlswholikegirls #marriedlesbians #lesbianlife #lesbiancouples #lovemakesafamily

Fertility update ✨ Last year we began our fertility journey and really came close to growing our family with IUI. Unfortunately, things didn't quite work out as planned, however, we can't wait to try again in 2023. Our plan is to use reciprocal IVF this time, meaning Cass will do an egg retrieval and then I will carry the baby. While we are still in the early stages of this process, it doesn't mean there aren't things we can do to prepare in advance. The biggest thing I'm doing right now to prepare my body for pregnancy is taking a prenatal vitamin. I personally use @beli.baby and love that they: - are easy on my stomach - include choline, which is essential for healthy fetal development, and often not included in other prenatals - have high quality ingredients in forms that are ready to be utilized by the body - help improve egg quality Use code TWOFEMMEGEMS15 for 15% off your Beli Baby order! #belibaby #globalgaygirlgang #pride #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #wlw #lovewins #loveislove #loveisloveislove #lesbiansofig #twomoms #twomomsarebetterthanone #fertility #fertilityjourney #iuijourney #ivfjourney #twomomfamily #lgbtfamily #lesbianfamily #gayfamily #samesexparents #samesexfamily #girlswhokissgirls #girlswholikegirls #lesbiancouple #marriedlesbians #twowives

All the fun details 👇🏻 Even though we are married, Cass and I always make it a point to keep dating each other. That means intentional time together focused on deepening our connection. We alternate planning dates for one another, and leave the other one totally surprised until it’s happening! It was my turn to plan a date, and since Cass is an introvert and it’s wintertime here, I wanted to plan the perfect cozy daytime date. I surprised Cass with a trip to the bookstore and told them to pick out a few things they wanted. We wandering different sections together and mused about what each of us found interesting. I even made it a point to listen extra carefully in the graphic novel section, since that is Cass’ favorite (any other Avatar the Last Air Bender fans out there?!?). I picked out some cooking magazines and Cass picked out a mountain of Avatar books 😂 Then we headed to lunch at a restaurant neither of us had been to before. I love trying new things together so this is always a must for me when planning a date. Then we headed home and cuddled up together on the couch to read our new books and magazines. Literal perfection! Any other introverts out there?👇🏻 #globalgaygirlgang #pride #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lovewins #wlw #loveislove #loveisloveislove #lesbiancouple #lesbiansofig #girlswhokissgirls #girlswholikegirls #queercouple #marriedlesbians #lesbiancouplegoals #samesexcouple #twowives #mrsandmrs #lesbianfamily #gayfamily #lgbtfamily #lovemakesafamily #queercouple #itsokaytobegay #queerlove #couplegoals #outandproud

The ✨audacity✨ I had a really fun time over the holidays getting some time put in on projects we’ve been wanting to tackle around the house. The main focus has been on breathing new life into the space we use as a guest room and Alexa’s home office. We’ve had this old ikea dresser sitting around that I’ve been waiting for the perfect excuse to flip and it makes the whole room come together! I loved that this projects was done with materials we already had on hand! The dresser was sitting in a closet upstairs, the paint we had left over from a different project, and the pulls we had bought previously for a different project that we didn’t end up using! Just goes to show you— it doesn’t have to be brand new to look like new! Would you flip a piece of furniture you already own to fit a space? Or are you more of a buy something new type of person? ✨ Dresser: @ikeausa (tarva 5 drawer) Rug: @boutiquerugs Paint: @sherwinwilliams Agean Teal

Painted ceiling— you either love it or hate it 🖌️✨💕 This past weekend I’ve been working on transforming our guest room into Alexa’s dream home office (it will still also be doubling as a guest room too). She’s been patiently waiting for two years for this space to get a refresh. She’s calling all the shot design wise but my one request was that she let me paint the ceiling. And y’all it was a roller coaster. We put the first coat on and had instant regret. I was one foot out the door to go buy white ceiling paint to fix it but stuck it through to get the second coat on and remove the tape. And I’m so glad we didn’t abandon the plan because it turned out amazing 🙌🏻 Now we’re working on getting some furniture and decore for the room (Alexa is making some really cool DIY pressed flower art for the room)! Stick around to see this space come together. Would you paint your ceiling? 💕 paint: Rose Colored by @sherwinwilliams #globalgaygirlgang #pride #lgbt #lgbtq🌈 #lesbiancouple #wifeandwife #mrsandmrs #marriedlesbians #lesbianfamily #lesbiancouplegoals #howwehome #gayhome #twowives #samesexcouple #samesexparents #samesexlove #putandproud #diyhomeprojects #girlswhodiy #makehomeyours #diyprojects #loveislove #loveisloveislove #wlw #lesbianlife #lesbianlifestyle

Hands down my favorite memory of 2022 was…. Watching my wife become more and more confident in themselves. When we met Cass identified as femme and always struggled with feeling happy in their clothing. Over the past few years I’ve watched Cass blossom into the amazing human they are today and embrace the joy of self expression! We attended 4 weddings this past year and Cass dressed in gender affirming formal wear for the first time. I was blown away my the difference in their posture, attitude, and overall well-being. So proud of my incredible wife, and can’t wait to keep tearing up the dance floor with you for years to come ❤️❤️❤️ #globalgaygirlgang #pride #lgbt #lgbtq #wlw #lovewins #loveislove #loveisloveislove #lesbiansofig #nonbinary #enbypride #nonbinarypride #nonbinaryfashion #lesbiancouple #lesbiancouplegoals #couplegoals #lesbianwedding #lgbtwedding #gaywedding #samesexmarriage #samesexwedding #samesexcouple #samesexlove #twowives #wifeandwife #girlswhokissgirls #girlswholikegirls

From me and mine to you and yours ✨🎄 Merry Christmas y’all! To be honest, this Christmas was the one that almost didn’t happen. Between a sick dog at home, a once in a generation snow storm, and a stomach bug we weren’t sure we’d make it to today! Luckily all is well! Dog is all healed up. We ended up making our drive to Indiana a day before to miss out on the storm and got in just before the weather got really bad. We’ve been able to enjoy some one on one family time with Alexa’s family and our nephew! Alexa woke up this am with a stomach bug and has been a total trooper. She even rallied enough this evening to open a few presents and snap a quick photo for us to add to our memory bank to commentate Christmas 2022: the one that almost didn’t happen 🎄 Wishing everyone a very merry Christmas today and a happy holidays to all! #globalgaygirlgang #wlw #wlwcouple #pride #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lovewins #loveislove #loveisloveislove #merryandbright #merrychristmas #lesbianlife #lesbianfamily #samesexmarriage #samesexlove #gaygirls #wifeandwife #mrsandmrs #couplegoals #lesbiancouple #lesbianlifestyle #girlswhokissgirls #outandproud #twowives #samesexfamily #lgbtfamily #marriedlesbians

Anyone else attempting to travel through this winter storm? ❄️ We woke up at 3 AM today to drive from MD to IN before Elliot hits, and ended up with an insane few hours with snow from a different system. Can’t wait to get safely to my parents house and show Cass a proper white Christmas 🫶🏻 While I do most of the driving in our daily life, on road trips we split the driving pretty evenly. But don’t be fooled Cass is a passenger princess 99.9% of the time 😂 Who else is traveling today? 🤞🏻😬 #globalgaygirlgang #pride #lgbt #lgbtq #wlw #lovewins #loveislove #loveisloveislove #lesbiansofig #girlswhokissgirls #girlswholikegirls #twowives #wifeandwife #marriedlesbians #lesbiancouple #couplegoals #lesbiancouplegoals #samesexcouple #samesexfamily #lesbianfamily #lgbtfamily #christmas2022 #lovemakesafamily #itsoktobegay #nonbinary #enbypride
