7. Tell us how he proposed?
Let's just skip this question, shall we? :) Just kidding... let's just say this. I ruined my own proposal.  I was home for the weekend from college and I knew he was going to propose and I was so anxious that I wouldn't quit asking to just see the ring and let's just say he had a fabulous proposal and well he caved and just got down on one knee said some sweet words and proposed.  It was sweet but looking back I regret ruining it!  I beg him all the time to "redo" it.  He always tells me no.

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?
flowers.  Normally we plan a sweet date and just exchange cards.

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
Neither. I hate to sit at home but we live in Indiana so the sunset dinner on the beach would be AH-MAZING but not possible here. So, just a lets go out and spend time doing something kind of girl :)

10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day.
Go on a vacation to mexico & Vegas! && I'd love to renew our vows. :)

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
We will probably have my parents watch Maddux & go out to dinner just the 2 of us. 

College-- 2007

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
I try not to ask for anything really on Valentine's Day because my Birthday is the very next day.

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
Never make failing an option. Always make sure that you are showing the other person how much you love them and need them. The little things mean the most sometimes.

That's love.

  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who already wants to renew our vows. We've only been married two years, but I just think the words and promises would mean more to me now. I like what you said about never making failing an option :)

    1. I totally agree. I'm so passionate about marriage in general that as I've grown and matured and became a parent that marriage is HUGE that it is so much more than that soul mate, that wedding day & those vows. I've been blessed with a great marriage so far but, I already have so much more meaning behind those I do's that I would love to get married 1000x over :)

  2. How is it that you look exactly the same now as you did 5 years ago?? Please share your secret. :)

  3. love all the pics! that's amazing that you guys have been together since you were 14!

    1. I'm not sure amazing is the right word ;)
