Cocktail Friday: Rainbow Mimosa
I don't know what you all have been doing this afternoon, but I've been scrolling through my social media feeds with tears of joy in my eyes because today, every person I know can get married. MARRIED. They can commit to the person they love because it has been declared, by law, that love is love.
Love. Is. Love.
I don't talk about this much here on the blog, and perhaps I should work on that, but as a Christian I firmly believe in a God who loves us all unconditionally. That pure, constant, fierce love is something we can share with one another. We can show it through our love for our partners, our acts of kindness toward strangers, and our desire for people to feel safe and secure no matter who they walk through this world with.
Today, we took a gigantic leap in the right direction. I hope this love that is sweeping the planet continues to wash over all of us, no matter what.
This rainbow mimosa is the perfect celebratory drink for the weekend. It's fresh and new and full of vibrant color that perfectly reflects the joy and relief so many are feeling as this weekend begins.
