Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted a blog. Life gets in the way!!
On July 4th 2008 Justin and I became official. He introduced me as his girlfriend at his *clears throat* brother’s girlfriend’s mom’s house for a 4th of July celebration that is still our tradition. Funny enough, he couldn’t remember her name so he spat out “This is my girlfriend…uh…” I finally interjected and said “I’m Tara.” I gave him shit about not remembering my name but he just couldn’t remember hers!
Anyway, I had no idea at the time that he would end up being my husband. We still go to the same place every year for the 4th. This place ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
Justin’s autism means that we have to plan things and I can’t spring things on him at the last minute. It works well for me, because I hate last minute too. But it also means he constantly second guesses if he even wants to go. That makes it difficult sometimes too. He gets stressed about the driving, the time, what we’re taking, etc. It’s hard to keep him from stressing about it. Actually I can’t keep him from stressing at all. That’s what sucks.
Today I came home to a dozen roses and homemade chicken parmesan for dinner, btw. He loves me.
Here’s to another 9 years, baby.
