I am so excited to open up this link-up to you guys and read your love stories. It's one of my favorite things to read when I look at a blog, and it's a great way for me to get to know my readers more. And for you to get to know us more. If you don't already know some of these things... here they are! You can either just tell us your love story, or there are questions that are listed for you below to grab and answer. Our love story is right below the questions. Hope you enjoy :)

-------------------------------------------------

Our Love Story

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
Andrew and I celebrated our 6 year "together" anniversary on January 30th.
2. How did you meet?
SHORT VERSION: We met our freshmen year {second semester} at Purdue University. I had switched roommates my second semester {because the my original roommate and I had clashed}, and decided to room with a complete stranger

On one of the first weekends back to school, my new roommate Laura and I had gone to two separate parties. When we came home around 1 am, she asked if two of her good guy friends growing up could come over for a little bit? "Um. Sure." Well, these two friends show up, and what does Laura decide to do? Why, she decides to hop into bed and go to sleep, leaving me with these two strangers.
One which happened to be a talker {my Andrew}. And a talking he did. Talk talk talk. Until 5 am. The whole time, I am thinking "oh m g someone save me, i'm so tired!" His roommate {the other guy there, but you wouldn't know since he just sat there pissed off}, kept saying the same thing. "Lets go man."  Finally they left.   

We met up a week later at a party we both went to... and well... a shot, here, a shot there, and a first kiss... the rest? Is history.

After we started dating, I found out from his friend that when he walked out that door the first night we met... he said to him "She's going to be mine." Blushes.

3. If married, how long have you been married? 
It will be 3 years in August.
4. If you are married, where did you get married at? 
We got married in Maui, Hawaii. Just the two of us :)
5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
Do we ever! I don't think I could even list them all, but I will definitely list a few of the "popular" ones. Burby. Baby. Honey. Love. Bee-bop. 
6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
He's funny. He is the biggest heart. He loves me and my daughter more than anything on this earth. And it shows.
7. Tell us how he proposed?
Andrew proposed to me in the bath tub, in a hotel, on our 3rd year anniversary, right before dinner. He just couldn't wait. So very like Andrew. Obviously there are more details... but no need to share those ;)
8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?
Can I say neither? Ha. I made up the questions. Well, he's totally more of a dinner date night type guy. But if I had to choose between the two, definitely the flowers and teddy bear. With champagne. And a hotel room.

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
Both. Depending on the situation. If we are celebrating something? We like to go out, and go big. Otherwise, I am a total homebody and would much prefer to stay in and relax.
10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
I'd love to travel to Europe with Andrew for 4 weeks. Obviously this wouldn't happen until our kids are older, but it's on our "must" list when we are older.
11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day. 
We actually haven't decided yet. I think I want to have a little "fancy" dinner at home as a family of 3. Dress up. Candles. mMmMm this sounds nice.
12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
Nope. We are saving right now for a vacation... so the money that would have been spent will go towards our vacation money.
13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
Respect. My best advice I could give anyone. A piece of advice that I struggle with day in and day out. But it is truly one of the most important things in a relationship. To honor each other. Appreciate one another. Respect each other. Be that persons biggest fan.
14.  Show us a picture of what love means to you.

Grab a button, fill out the questions {or tell us your love story}, and tell all your friends! Love is in the air!
