Our Love Story!




Happy Valentine's Day! In honor of this charming day, I thought I would share our love story for all of the other hopeless romantics out there like me! I am a sucker for a good love story and a happy ending

1. How long have you & your significant other been together?
We have been together for 9 years, and just celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary.

2. How did you meet?
We met at a church Youth Group. Gable and I have a 4 year age difference so we were never in the same bible study but we would always see each other at church/ group activities/ trips with the group. It wasn’t till my senior year of high school that I started liking him. We both are snowboarders and hung out with each other the entire Ski Trip. I just remember laughing so hard with him, he is such a gentleman! My parents were on the trip and wanted so badly for us to date. (Gable is literally the perfect guy to bring home to your family. My father loved him before I did!) A spark was lit between us on that trip, but it wasn’t till two weeks later that we went on our first date.

3. If married, how long have you been married?
We celebrated our 5th year Wedding Anniversary this past November.

4. If you are married, where did you get married? Big or small wedding?
We were married in St. Petersburg FL, in Gable’s momma’s church. We had about 165 people that attended. My parents through us a great party!

5. Do you have any nicknames that you call one another?
I call him Gable just about all of the time. And we also have an odd nickname for each other. He is my Host and I am his Rib. (Long story!)

6. Name 3 things that you love most about your honey.
Just 3 things…
-My husband is the most unselfish person on this planet. He would literally do anything for anyone, including giving the shirt off his back. My daddy always tells me the story of when he first met Gable. They (daddy and Gable) were team captains for a kickball game at the church. Daddy is very competitive and started picking the fastest most athletic guys for his team. And then he realized that Gable was picking the guys that would be normally picked last. He hated the idea of making someone feel not as valuable to the team. From that day on my daddy wanted me to marry Gable. That was 5 years before we started dating!
-Gable is very hard-working and would do anything to provide for me and our future family. He has grown so much in the past year with his job and I am so impressed with his strong work ethic.
-He has such a great since of humor. I can never stay mad at him, because he is always making me laugh.

7. Tell us how he proposed.
I think I will right this for another post.

8. Is he a flowers & teddy bear kind of guy for v-day or strawberries, champagne, & rose petals?
I would say neither. He would much rather give me a gift that I can use. I don’t think he really likes Valentine’s Day, but just celebrates it to please me.

9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop in a movie & relax on the couch?
I would say most of the time pop in a movie and relax, but I do love going to the beach and having dinner every now and then.

10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant other one day, if you could do anything or go anywhere?
I would love to go somewhere and stay in one of those private cabanas on the water. Go kayaking, hiking, bike riding, and just lay in the sun with my honey!

11. Tell us what you plan on doing this Valentine's Day.
For lunch my daddy is taking momma and me out to lunch. He is such a sweet daddy! And then for dinner I am making a Low Country Boil for Gable and myself!!!! I can’t wait it is going to be so yummy. Then we will probably cuddle on the couch and watch some TV.

12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's Day?
I didn’t this year. I just told Gable I want him home from work early so I can spend some time with him.

13. Give us one piece of advice for keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
Keep the Lord in the center of your marriage!

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