Our Love Story

With Valentine's day right around the corner, everyone seems to twist their minds around hearts and roses and the one they love. Allison and Stephanie both posted this little questionnaire about their significant others and I thought I would too. I just love sharing about Jeremy and I because he is so special and important to me. He is my soul-mate and the one person who I can share absolutely anything with. Not only is he the father of my children and my partner for life, but he is my best friend. So on to it, feel free to steal the questions and write about your own significant other!

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
We will have been together four years this coming April.

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
Jeremy was talking to my best friend at the time but they both knew right away that there was no way that they were compatible. She told him, 'I know someone perfect for you' and ta-da! Wouldn't you know that she was right? After we met we did not spend one day apart (literally) until I went away for a youth trip. Even now, 4 years later, you could count on 2 hands the total amount of days or nights we've spent apart.

3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell}
We were married for 3 years on December 23rd.

4. If you are married, where did you get married at? Big or small wedding?
We were married at Friendship Baptist Church at one of the smallest wedding ceremony's you could have. I wore my wedding dress, he wore his tux and we were married in front of a total of 17 people; all immediate family with the exception of our pastor, his wife and Ken and Carmen (two people in which we love with all of our hearts).

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
Jeremy calls me 'Genevieve' from time to time and we throw 'booger' back and forth fairly often. Other than that, our nicknames are just those typical used by couples (babe, baby, sweetie...etc).

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
This is sooo hard! There are so many things I love about Jeremy.
1. He gets me. He gets us. He's okay with the fact that I say what's on my mind most of the time and don't give a crap what other people think. He has the same lifestyle as I do and when someone says, "OMG, you don't watch Jersey Shore?!" we can both look at them like their idiots for watching such trash. (Sorry, but it's true) He doesn't need to be in the 'in' crowd and he doesn't need to do typical 'guy' stuff with his old friends. We are perfect for one another.
2. He's so smart. Seriously. He's a master at trivia and he can tell you how so many things work. He loves learning new things and he doesn't feel ashamed to admit when he doesn't know how to do something. He's handy and he's so good at so many things.
3. He's a man; a real man. He does everything he can to support his family. He loves me endlessly even when I'm grumpy or a nag. He is a wonderful father and works so hard to make sure Henry has a great life. He gets up early and goes to bed late and barely gets a break in between. All the while he makes sure he takes time to make sure that Henry and I are loved and well...that's so important!

7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?
He took me out to lunch for chinese food and then we went and saw 'Step Brothers' in the theater, on the way back he took me to the Eldean Bridge in Troy that we had frequented before and while there he took me below it by the creek. He got down on one knee, pulled out the ring and asked me to marry him and (obviously) I said yes! The first person I called was Ken because Jeremy had informed me that he had asked Ken's permission to marry me. I was just smitten!

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?
He's a flowers and chocolate and random other things type of guy. We're not a typical 'romantic' couple. Rose petals and champagne don't set a mood, the person you're with why waste your time?

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
We are definitely a couch and movie couple, but we love having a nice dinner out somewhere every once in awhile!

10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant other one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
I'd like to travel overseas, have a bazillion more 'weddings' and just be a close, happy family who laughs no matter what!

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
We have no plans. We'll probably do dinner or something.

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

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
Be as selfless as possible, laugh as often as you can and have a little pillow talk every night! It's so important to communicate!

14. Show us a picture of what love means to you.
You know there's no way I can show you just one, right?

Love is... being silly, laughing and marrying your very best friend.

Love is...spending your wedding night in the emergency room...and not caring a bit.

Love is...being there through the easy times and the hard times while building a life and a future together.
