Love Story Link Up.

I love love as well as a good love story! In celebration of pink and red day, I wanted to share mine and E's story.
1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
E and I dated all through college and married a year or so after I graduated. We have been together a total of 11 years!!! Married for 7 this April! Unbelievable how time literally just flies.
2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
My best friend invited me to go on a cruise for our first college Spring Break and of course I obliged. Come to find out the cruise was a little girls' cheer leading cruise...IE: little kiddos everywhere. L and I were desperate to talk to other people other than each other and that's when a UT hat, a group of guys and a pool come into the picture. We saw a group of guys and noticed one had a University of Texas hat on, so we figured they lived near us. We just busted through the crowd, asked him to take our picture and we all became a little party group the rest of the trip. It was an absolute blast! I met E later that night and he basically needed help getting some random girl away from him and since his baby blues made me fall in love, I quickly danced and drank with him the rest of the time. I came home told my parents that I met the man I would marry. :)
3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell} 7 years!
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 wed in Houston, Texas at Second Baptist. We had a pretty decent size wedding...nothing too huge, but definitely not small. There is not one thing I would change about our big day: I loved every minute! 
5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
I call him E. He calls be Baby, Julie, Julez.
6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
His laugh, his loyalty and his heart. He has the biggest heart and seriously adores me!

7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?
He proposed to me on our boat on Lake Austin with wine, food, a rose and the most brilliant round diamond! It was a perfect proposal that was very private...I will always remember that night!
8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberrieschampagne, and rose petals?
He is definitely not a teddy bear guy, but he definitely is a romantic at heart! I will always remember I said something about "really, candles..." in college and I think that ruined his want to make every occasion romantic. We love to fix dinner together, drink wine, watch sports with a fire. He does surprise me with flowers on occasion! 
9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
If we lived somewhere that had a beach and beautiful sunset everyday, we would TOTALLY be the dinner and beach couple. There is nothing more we both love than salt water, a drink and a sunset! 

10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
I would love to go to Italy with E. We both have been, but not together! He is an Italian kiddo that loves food and wine as do I, so I think it would be the perfect place.
11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
I am not sure what we are going to do yet...I am bummed it's on a Tuesday this year. Whatever we do, we will have a blast and probably spend too much money even if we cook at home. ;)
12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
I never ask for much on Valentine's, BUT this year I did ask for Kendra Scott earrings. If I don't get those, I will be totally fine with some pretty flowers from Randall's.
13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
Be with your best friend, learn to compromise, always say I love you and remember to say you are sorry. 
14.  Show us a picture of what love means to you.
Being together, being ourselves, laughing and having a blast!
