The Day O Love

I've seen the Love Story link up on several blogs and thought it would be fun to do on Valentine's day. I did some research and found that it was originally started on the blog From Mrs to Mama. Cute blog!

Our love story (well some of it):

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?

We started dating in October of 2003 so that makes it 8 1/2 years



2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}

We met at college through a mutual friend. We actually met a year earlier at a basketball game but Luke was still a senior in high school and I was a freshman in college just visiting his town with our mutual friend. It was a quick introduction and then I never saw him (or thought about him) again for a year. Sometimes when I think about it it's so weird to think that the same boy I met at a basketball game is the love of my life and now father of my child. Freaky.



3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry?

It will be four years this summer, we got married on July 26, 2008

4. If you are married, where did you get married at? Big or small wedding?

We got married at my hometown in the church that I went to all through high school. I'm not sure what the definition of big or small wedding is so I would say ours was right in the middle, probably on the biggish side with around 300 people there. It was a beautiful day.


5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!

Just the usual "babe" Luke sometimes calls me by my maiden name which is kinda weird, and sometimes I call him Tree which is equally weird. We aren't lovey-dovey-mushy-gushy people around here.

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.

His loyalty, his heart and his determination


7. Tell us how he proposed?

We went to eat and then he went to a soccer field where we went on our first "date". It was so special and sweet. I thought he would be proposing soon, but never thought he would do it there.
(right after Luke proposed)

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?

Hmmmmm...neither? We just don't really get into valentines day, but he always sends me flowers so I'll go with the second one.


9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?

Pop on a movie and relax on the couch. A date night is nice every once in awhile, but I love just hanging out at home together.

10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?

Travel, travel, travel! I would love to travel the world with Luke. We hoped to do more traveling before we had our very little one and we didn't get to, which is obviously VERY fine with us, but we do want to travel the world.


11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.

Spending the evening at home as a family.



12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?

Nope! My birthday is too close to Valentine's day to bother with presents.


13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.

First, keep God as the center of your relationship. Second, learn to forgive and don't hold grudges, and third HAVE FUN TOGETHER. Don't take life so seriously. Oops I guess that was three!

14. Show us a picture of what love means to you.
