About the Author:  Tara Phillips (me!).  I’m 33 years old and I’m currently a paralegal for a little law firm that I love.  I enjoy scrapbooking, photography (all the pix on this website are mine), writing (I have three self-published books!), cross stitching, playing video games and hanging out with the hubs.

About the Author’s Husband:  Justin Phillips, 35 years old.  Self-described nerd.  Diagnosed with Asperger’s/Autism Spectrum Disorder in March 2017.  Stay at home husband.  Enjoys video games, photography, outdoors, sleeping and sex (ha!).

We have been together since June 2008, engaged December 2015, and married June 13, 2016.

This is our first picture ever, taken in Westport, Washington, in 2008.

When he was first diagnosed, I thought I could find some social media about being married to someone with Asperger’s, but there is very little.  I thought I would start sharing to maybe help someone else who is struggling, too.
