The Thirteen Project- 3

I'm using thirteen embroidery hoops to tell a story about my family. This is a story of the beginning. My husband and I met in ASL101 in Spring '05. I was there to learn sign language, and as he puts it, he "was there to pick up chicks." He decided on me because I used God in a sentence without a curse word. If you aren't a sign language officianto, or you've never watched Sesame Street lol, this is the sign for "I love you." Now, I will be honest and say I didn't like Justin when I first met him. He didn't let that bother or discourage him though, he wanted me and that was that. It took him quite a while to convince me, but his persistence paid off. When Justin decides he really wants something, his mind is made. Although this quality is kind of troublesome sometimes, he has never had second thoughts about wanting me or loving me. I'm blessed that way. I love my husband with all my heart, and this is a fun reminder of when I first laid eyes on him.


  1. Aww..that is so sweet! I love your story:) Happy Monday afternoon, my dear

    Sorry I've been MIA. But I'm back. You were warned.

    So, Justin went to pick up chicks and succeeded. That's pretty awesome. What if he hadn't been so typical-male? Then you wouldn't be together. Whoa.
