Our Love Story

I came across this link up today and decided it would be fun to share our love story for those of you who don't know it already.

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
About three and a half years. That seems like nothing, but it feels like forever.

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
We actually met online., to be exact. I had just moved to a new city and worked in a preschool, and didn't have a lot of opportunities to meet guys. So I decided to give a shot for one month. Josh was the first guy I met in person and from our first date, we've been inseparable.

3. If married, how long have you been married?
We got married on April 24, 2010; we are quickly approaching our two year anniversary!
4. If you are married, where did you get married at? Big or small wedding? 
We got married at the Riverfront Hyatt in downtown Jacksonville. I don't think it was a "big" wedding, but we both have large families, so there were lots of people there! It was a beautiful day.
5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? 
He calls me Babe, and Carebear. I call him Joshy or Bagel (because Muffin is too girly) and sometimes when we're being silly, we call each other Pookie-Snookums-Honeybunches.

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
I love how he is always willing to help anybody with whatever they need. I love that he loves his family--especially his Mama and his sister and his Granny--more than anything. And I love that he knows how to make me laugh, and makes me laugh every day.

7. Tell us how he proposed? 
 It was my birthday. We went to dinner and then for a walk on the beach, which is something we really love to do. I had asked for sterling silver earrings for my birthday, so I thought that's what the little box was--until I opened it and saw a diamond ring!

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals? 
Neither, really. He'll buy me flowers because he knows I like them. And maybe some wine or chocolate.

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
Both! It depends on my mood. As I said, we love dinner and walks on the beach--but I am also quite content with Redbox and a night on the couch.
10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere? 
I'd really love to take him to Thailand. I spent a summer there a few years ago, and I really want to show Josh all the things I love about it.

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day. 
We honestly haven't talked about it, but since it falls on a weekday and he works late, we'll probably just have a quiet dinner at home. We may go out to celebrate this weekend or next (I can always use an excuse to eat at Buca di Bepo!)
12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
Chocolate--I love Lindt chocolate truffles and there are only a few times a year I can get away with paying for them!
13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love
Always put the other person first, not just ahead of yourself, but ahead of everything else in your life. And don't talk bad about your husband to anyone else. If you need advice or support, that's one thing, but complaining about him to anyone is not going to do anything positive for your relationship.
14.  Show us a picture of what love means to you.

 Happy early Valentine's Day!


  1. My hubby and I met online too, although it was Myspace, not Match. Do you ever feel weird telling people you met online? Sometimes I do, but mostly because it was Myspace...

    1. I do feel weird! Even though it worked out extremely well for us--and you guys too--I still think it's kind of weird!

    2. Yay! I love it! I do enjoy your story. You always inspired me!!!

  2. Okay I am a little cry baby right now... Thats so sweet!

  3. This post is very touching! I never knew love would be this powerful and happy. :') I was really inspired after reading this post. Stay in love both of you.
