Our Love Story- Valentines Day Link Up

Linking up with From Mrs. to Mama

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

Wait for it.....11 months on the 19th! Def one of those, "when you know, you know" things!
2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
I have actually never written how we met. After Caden and I had finally gotten back on our feet from a long streak of things falling apart, I wanted nothing to enter our lives and mess us up! We had a safe place to live and a secure job, I planned to be here for many years to come. I jokingly asked a lady from my church that I admire, "if she had any more sons?" She had three sons that I had heard nothing but good things about. She laughed and then proceeded to tell me about her nephew that was the closest thing to her sons. She wasn't kidding, Shane went on family vacations and spent many summers at her home with her boys. She told me all about him, most importantly that he wanted a family. He had never been married and had no kids. We ended up going out on our first date a few weeks after talking on the phone. He brought me flowers. Seeing his chemistry with Caden after a few dates, confirmed my desire of a future with him.  

Our First Date :)
3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell}
We are getting married on June 16 this year! Only about 4 more months!

4. If you are married, where did you get married at? Big or small wedding? If not, where would you like to get married? And will it be big or small?
We are getting married at The Elms in Coosada, AL. I posted about it here. It will be between 200-300. I am so excited and can not wait!!

under the moss trees, minus the water hose:)
5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!

Shaney boo or Shaney Love, Love bug, Hunny Bunny, Baby Love
6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
Only 3???
Ok, the first is the way he is with Caden. Caden is so excited about having Shane as his Dad. It makes me so happy every time I see them playing and spending time together!!

The second, would be how supportive he is in everything I want or do. He makes me feel like everything that is important to me is important to him. I looove that about him!!:) I am never nervous to talk to him about anything!

The 3rd would be how much fun he is. I would never be able to be with someone that didnt make me laugh or like to have a good time with me. He is very silly with me, although he may not come off like he would be!!

7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?

He proposed at Disney World in front of the castle during Wishes! You can read about it here.

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?
For now, def a flowers and bear (or Reese's!!:)) Maybe after were married a while, he may try to shake it up a bit with  the other ;) We actually celebrated this weekend, since we wont be together on Vday.

My roses from Shane

Caden's card, candy, and $10
9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
Both! We love the beach! And any opportunity to be romantic, Ill take it! But the movie on the couch is an every weekend desire for me!

About to parasail!

10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere? 
I want to go to NYC at Christmas time very badly! It seems like it would be so romantic!
11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
We went to dinner and exchanged cards, candy and flowers for me!:)
12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
Nope got all I wanted, time. Dont mean to sound cheesy!
13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
I would say communication is a top priority in a relationship. You can't go very far without it!!
Also, the piece of advice that I hold closest would be.. if you work on your relationship with God then everything else will fall into place.
14. Show us a picture of what love means to you.
