The world according to Andrea


on August 12, 2010

I met Joey just one month after my fiance Steve had passed away.  I wasn’t really ready to date, but wasn’t ready to be alone  either.  I was very messed up to say the least.  It’s amazing to me that my nearly constant breakdowns and sobbing during those early dates didn’t send him running for the hills.

But, he didn’t.  He stayed.  He helped me.  And, it wasn’t easy for that 19 year old boy.

It’s been nearly 12 years that Joey’s been in my life and ten years of that in holy matrimony.  I’ve watched that 19 year old boy grow up into quite a man.

Together, we’ve shared:  living in three different homes, three cats, one dog, four foster children, 9 different places of employment, two college graduations, six vehicles, many vacations, loss of grandparents, loss of a parent, loss of pets, good times, bad times, and three of the cutest kids to ever walk (and crawl) the earth.

I love him.  A lot.

Looking forward to the next decade.  Happy Anniversary, Joe Joe!
