Our Love Story

I saw this on a friend and fellow blogger's page and thought it would be cool to also link-up
and share our love story.
I know everyone has a story and it is just as great as the next because who doesn't love when you find someone so fitting and someone totally perfect for YOU!

1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
We have been together for 2 1/2 years

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
I shared our story once before but for those who don't know Isaiah and I met a long time ago. Our dads had served LDS missions together and they kept in touch. They were good friends and my earliest memory of him was when I was six and he was five. My dad and I had gone to his house to visit. I remember playing basketball outside and he was teaching me how to shoot a lay-up. He was telling me I was doing it wrong because I wasn't using the right hand. I had a little crush on him but a while after that Isaiah's Grandpa had gotten really sick and his family moved to California to care for him.  My family and I went to California in 1997 for his Grandpa's funeral and we were all able to spend time together. Of course, I still thought he was cute but we lived in different states so I didn't think anything of it! I found him on good ol' Facebook in 2009. We talked on occasion and I thought he was more handsome than ever. It's definitely safe to say I was more into him than he was into me. He messaged me that he was coming to Utah the weekend of my birthday, I told him to call me if he did come and we would get together. We met up the night of my birthday and hung out. He and his sister were performing at a hole in the wall bar. My best friend which is also his first cousin, Jenn met me there and she said she had a surprise for me. They just finished performing and he was near the stage. She walked me over there and when I first saw him, I couldn't get over how massive his arms were! She convinced me to meet up with them at their other cousin's house. I'm so glad I did! Isaiah and I talked and laughed all night. I still couldn't get over how massive I thought his arms were, how good looking he was and how crazy it was that we had grown up! I couldn't believe that it had been twelve years since I last saw him. After a few months of talking he started taking trips from California to Utah to visit me and the rest is history.


3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell}
We just celebrated our 2 year anniversary last month.


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 got married in West Valley City, Utah. It was a very intimate wedding with our close friends and family. We didn't really tell anyone. One day we were talking about wanting to get married, we let our family know and within the month it was a done deal.

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
We don't have nick-names for each other. Just the typical: Babe, Honey, Daddy and Lovey. I also call him Zeeky. He usually calls me "my love"

6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
It's so hard to name just 3 things that I love most about him. But here are the three that stick out the most:
  1. He has the utmost respect for me. He has never raised his voice or even given me a funny look when I am on one. He speaks kindly to me and would never say a bad thing about me. His respect for me shows in every word and deed.
  2. He is patient. He calms me down when I am stressed out and he always tells me not to sweat the small stuff. He waits for me, he leads me and helps me in anyway he can.
  3. He is so easy-going. The fact that he is so laid-back helps me a lot. If I didn't have him, I would run around like a chicken with its head cut off. He balances me and soothes me in my darkest hour
7.Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?
He never proposed to me. We talked about how much we loved each other and how we felt there was no one else for us but US. His parents decided on a date to come to Utah and that was that. I didn't even pick the date that we were married, it happened so fast which was nice because it was stress free for me. Isaiah jokes about one day proposing to me but I just laugh. I don't need a proposal because I already have him!


8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberrieschampagne, and rose petals?
We're both not into Valentine's Day. We don't think it's the greatest holiday because we feel you should show your love everyday. If he did choose to do something for me, I would hope it includes a huge meal because food is awesome and plus you can't eat roses!!


9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
I would much rather pop in a movie and stay in. We enjoy just being able to cuddle up and watch an action packed film or interesting documentaries. (yes, we are so boring!!)


10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant other one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
One day when our children have all grown up and are on their own, I would love to travel the world with my love. It would be so amazing to be able to have countless adventures with him to foreign places to get a taste of all the beautiful cultures this world has to offer.


11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
We just plan on spending time with our little ones and want to soak up the amazing things they do and say.


12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
No, I'm not asking for anything. He did the dishes last night and straightened up the apartment before he left to school which makes things so much easier for me especially because I don't feel well today. The great thing about that is he does that every night so I feel really blessed.

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love
I think communication and respect is key. But you have to learn when the best time to communicate is, for yourself and your partner. Sometimes one or the other needs time. Respect goes a long way and if you have the utmost respect for one another, you will always keep your partner in mind in any and all decisions you make.


14.  Show us a picture of what love means to you.
{This is what I call LOVE}
