love story link up.

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I thought this sweet little link up would be perfect for a blog post.

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
9 years this October.  9 years!!  Almost a decade.  Holy cow.  

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
Readers Digest version: We met online by accident, starting meeting up at school (I was a freshman & he was a junior), fell in love & were high school sweethearts.  Steve left on LDS mission for 2 years.  Lisa waited.  They got engaged 2 months after Steve got home.  Married 3 months after that.  I kind of wish Nicholas Sparks would write a novel about our love story, perhaps I'll shoot him an email?

3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell}
3 years..4 years on August 2nd.  Which baffles me.  

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 were married in the Sacramento Temple.  Our wedding was small & intimate but our reception had 400+ people.  It was HUGE.  But fun.  

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
We are pretty boring--we both call each other "Hun".  I kinda love it though. 

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
1. ALWAYS puts me first, & considers my feelings about everything.
2. Super sweet with our daughter-(and that's hot.)
3. Has a strong testimony of Jesus Christ.

7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?
We hiked up a huge rock overlooking the ocean & asked me.  Afterwards he set up a candlelit dinner on the beach & played a cd of all our favorite songs.  Sweet memory!

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberrieschampagne, and rose petals?
Oh no..he's way more creative than that.  He blows me away with the sweet stuff he comes up with.  One year he made a "Notebook" of our love story, just incase one of us gets Alzheimer's & forgets everything.  (Just like the movie!)  It has over 20 pages of our story with pictures & everything.  It was the sweetest thing.  

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
I'm a sucker for both.  But I'm always up for the beach.  And with a baby it's not exactly an option very often.  

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 go on a gondola ride in Venice, Italy.  

11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day. 
We are going to Monterey!  No clue what we are going to do there, but I'm sure it will be a good time.

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
Nahh, we don't really do gifts for Valentine's Day.  We usually just go somewhere to get away.  

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love. 
Argue naked.  Kidding!  Ummm... Hold hands.  Flirt with each other.  Always remember the reasons you fell in love in the first place.  (That was three pieces of advice. Oh well.)

14.  Show us a picture of what love means to you.
