What's Your Love Story?

Today I am liking up with frommrstomama for this cute Valentine's Day questionnaire. 

I hope you guys enjoy!

1. How long have you and your significant other been together? Ryan and I have been together for 6 years on Valentine's Day!
2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?} We meet in church when we were in high school. I had my eye on him, but doubted that he would ever, in a million years, like me. I asked him to be come be my partener in my dance classes when we learned classical dance. He didn't show up {he thought it was the next week}. He called me a week later to see if I wanted to go eat sushi for his birthday. I went and he realized that I was pretty cute after all ;) He gave me a Valentine's day gift a week later and we started dating.
3. If married, how long have you been married? We have been married for 1 year and 7 months!
4. If you are married, where did you get married at? Big or small wedding?  We got married in my grandparents small town in eastern NC. I loved their church which was full of stained glass. It was very special to be married there.Our wedding was medium sized. We had about 160 people there {give or take}. I would say it was quite perfect.
5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Well, my nick-name is baby squirrel and I don't know that I really call Ryan by a nick-name.
6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey. I love his kind heart and how he is so giving. I love his silly habits. {like saving every glass jar or anything that could potentially be a storage device for anything from seeds to shoes hahahaha} I love his muscular arms and soft skin.
7. Tell us how he proposed? Well, we had been talking about getting married, but the day he proposed, I had no clue. We had gone home from college for the weekend. When he picked me up from my dorm to go home he had flowers for me which I thought was awful sweet {but i thought nothing of}. We had hung out on friday night like usual. On Saturday his family was going to eat for his great grandmothers birthday. He called me and said that he was going to come over a little early before we went to dinner. When he got there he came on in my house. We sat around and talked then he said he had something for me in his car. We walked out to his car {he parked it far down my parents long driveway}. It was more beautiful flowers! I said "aww thanks hon that's so sweet" etc... We started walking back up the drive way and he stopped me and said, "Is that all you thought it was?" I didn't know what he meant. Then he said so many kind sweet words and got down on one knee right there in my drive way and asked me to marry him. I was soooooo happy I jumped up and said "Yesssss" {and fist pumped haha}. Meanwhile back inside my brother looks out the window and says, "I think Ryan just asked Clara to marry him." 
I got to show off my ring that night at dinner!
8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberrieschampagne, and rose petals? I would say he is more in between. Kind of like flowers and strawberries.
9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch? I am also kind of in between. I am more like dinner at the best restaurant at the beach, then a movie back at the beach house kind of girl.
10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere? I would probably spend all day traveling around the beautiful beaches of Greece. That is somewhere I would love to go and experience with Ryan. He would love the old world charm and I would love the blue ocean.
11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day. Since Valentine's Day is on Tuesday we will probably go out the following Saturday night to dinner and enjoy some time just relaxing together. Maybe watch a new movie. Get coffee the next morning.
12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day? I don't ever ask for anything for Valentine's Day, we usually go with cards and sometimes I get something small. I leave it up to him.
13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love. It is important to remember that love is something that is always growing and changing. As your circumstances change your love has more to build upon. Take time to thank your spouse each day for the things that they do for you. Never take the little things in life for granted. 
14.  Show us a picture of what love means to you.
This is my favorite picture of us. It is just so ... US!
