Loving Day in Real Life

So I discovered Loving Day (June 12) this year when my friend Alyssa asked me to write a reflection on the day for her blog.

The holiday commemorates the 1967 Supreme Court decision which made it illegal for states to keep interracial couples from marrying. The couple's last name was actually Loving - how cool is that?

While Billy and I definitely don't encounter much open discrimination (especially since he's white), we do believe culture is such an important part of our marriage. That's one of the reasons we share our story on this blog... in hopes that it encourages other couples in similar relationships!

Check out Alyssa's post on Loving Day and hear from other interracial couples as well. It was a joy to learn more about this celebration and to participate on her blog.
