Anyways, Austin is such a great husband and now knows me so well, 90% of the time he can figure out when I'm upset or stressed about something even if I haven't said anything and he will say. "What's wrong?" I usually say, "nothing." Then he'll say something like, "I can tell something is wrong and I know you'll stay up forever and worry about it. So talk to me about it so we both can go to sleep."
I am just so grateful I decided to go with my friend Amanda when she called asking if I wanted to hang out with some guys she went to Jr. High with. I almost told her no since I was all ready in my pajamas and pretty much getting ready to sit home and watch tv.
It would have been the second time I had the opportunity to meet Austin and didn't take it. Apparently after Austin and his friends got home from their missions they went on a trip to San Diego. While they were there they went to the temple. A couple took a group picture for them and then after talking with them for a couple of minutes they found out they were all from Utah. The couple decided they were going to set up a little group date activity for these boys and a group of girls from their ward back home in Eden, Utah. After the trip my sister Jordan and I received a phone call to go to the Allen's house and meet some boys......we gracefully declined and two years later the secret was out. Austin saw Susan Allen in our ward and the whole story was pieced together......and now it is my fault we weren't married two years earlier than we were. Apparently we were supposed to meet.
"True love comes quietly, without banners or flashing lights. If you hear bells, get your ears checked."
Love you Aust - thanks for putting up with me and all my crap.
To be happy with a man you must understand him a lot and love him a little. To be happy with a woman you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.
