love story [♥]

today i am switching things up a bit & linking up my love story up over at one of my favorite blogs from mrs to mama. what a cute idea this is with valentines day right around the corner. so without further ado, here is our story of love ♥

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
we will be celebrating SIX years together this april.

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
i know i have talked about it this before, so i'll keep it short this time. he was my boss! simple as that, for quite some time i was NOT a big fan of him, i mean come on, who likes their boss right?! eventually we started hanging out together, after about three[amazing] dates we were inseparable & have been ever since.

3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell}
yes, we are married. we will be celebrating FIVE years in just under a month on March 2nd.

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 had a small wedding, with our immediate families & a couple friends on st.pete beach in florida. it was at sunset, it was a stormy day but had cleared up[still overcast] but it didn't even matter i didn't get the sun in the pictures/background. i was married on the beach, how awesome is that?! there is not one thing i would change about our special day.

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
nothing special. just the normal "baby, honey, etc." i used to call him my sweet sweet lover pants, haha, it's been awhile since i've used that one.

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
oh gosh, what isn't there to love?! he is an incredible husband & father to us. he loves us to the moon & back. he is such a hard worker, he does so much for us. he is my best friend.

7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?
oh, i don't think i've ever talked about this. he drove us down to one of the most beautiful beaches in the area. laid out a blanket. we sat & talked. he then handed me a wedding invitation that said 
who: me & you
when: march 21st, 2008 
[the date we had originally planned on]
where: right here
then he got on the knee, gave me the speech, the ring & that was it. after all that excitement we drank champange to the sunset on the beach. it.was.perfect ♥ 

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberrieschampagne, and rose petals?
neither really. he isn't a huge fan of valentine's day. thinks it's a hallmark holiday, but i usually always get flowers, a card & something else. he is sweet, even though he doesn't like the day.

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
both, our usual night consists of watching a movie & snuggling at home so i love every chance i have to get out & have a night on the beach.

10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
okay. honestly, i would love for him to jump out a plane with me! that would be the best day for me but that will NEVER happen so i would love if we ended up in paris, kissing under the eifel tower one day.

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
nothing too exciting. he has the day off work[yay!] so we are taking the kids & spending the day at busch gardens & then probably just dinner & a movie at home.

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
nope. our anniversary is in less than a month, that's the important day & we are taking a vacation to disney next month so we are conserving the $$$ this month.

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
communication. i think you need to be able to be open & get feelings out, good or bad, when need be. life throws curve balls sometimes & you need to be able to sit down with your partner & come up with a plan. we have been able to get through any situation because we have been able to talk our way through anything. if you can't communicate everything will fall apart in those situations.

14.  Show us a picture of what love means to you.
♥ love is my family ♥ 
& the love that we all have for each other

[sorry about the size on some pictures. whenever i take a picture of myspace that happens. not sure why & none of those old pictures are on my new laptop]
