So, our first date…. On our first date, Justin picked me up at my dorm, and we went to dinner at my cousin’s, and then to a movie. We saw ‘The Exorcism of Emily Rose’. It was pretty scary. The date went really well, but about half way through the movie, I looked over and noticed that Justin had fallen asleep. Yes! He was asleep on out first date! I don’t how someone falls asleep during that movie, but he did. When most people hear that, they can’t believe that I ever agreed to see him again, but I did. We just had such a connection, I could only forgive him. And I did find out that he has this problem often…and still does. If the man gets still for a few minutes…he is out. Anyhow, we spent the next few hours talking and getting to know each other. From that day on, we were inseparable. We drove between Monroe and Ruston at least 3-4 days a week to see each other and spend time together, and we planned out which weekends we would go home and which we weren’t. Whether we home for the weekend or at school, we still made time together. We did everything together! It didn’t take us long to realize that we were meant to be together.
My love for that man has never changed. Our love is just as strong now (if not stronger now) as it was back then. I have been truly blessed!
