'Cause I'm a jerk... moving along.
Justin and I started dating at the beginning of this year, and if anyone would have told me where we'd be now and how this year would've played out, I would've called them nuts. For 25 solid years I was the token single girl in my group of friends, and even in my family. I was happy being alone. I didn't need anyone, and they evidently didn't need me. (I swear this is going to be a happy post).
I never could have possibly imagined what would have come from a simple message saying 'Hi, my name is Justin'. I never could have wished, dreamed, or hoped for the relationship that formed (pretty quickly) once we started talking and once we met. After only two months of talking, I even blogged about him, because I knew he was so special.
I know it sounds cheesy/mushy/lame/whatever, but you always hear the saying 'When you know, you know'.. I always thought that was complete BS until I met this man. We instantly clicked, we fell in love pretty quickly, and we knew right away that this time was different - for the both of us.
I could go on and on, and say so many mushy things that would make you all puke, but I won't. I'm just so grateful for how this year has turned out, and I couldn't be more excited to spend all day with this wonderfully sweet man - and looking forward to at least 70 more birthdays together.
We take an awful lot of selfies. #sorrynotsorry
Happy birthday, Justin.
I love you.
