What's Your Love Story??

Taken Ladies
1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
We have been together for 3.5 years. 

2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
We were introduced at a mutual friends wedding.  Both of us had recently gotten out of pretty crummy relationships and Brynne thought it would be smart to seat our families at the same table.  I kept telling him the entire night that I would never date an Air Force guy and he kept pursuing me.  2 weeks later I went to visit him in Cold Lake (which was 2 provinces away) and I knew that he was the man for me.

3. If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell}
We have been married for just over 1 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 were married in Currie Hall at the Royal Military College of Canada.  And our reception was at Fort Henry, which is a Canadian Historic site.  It was really cool because our servers were dressed in their military scarlets from the 1800 time period.   

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
He calls me Karebear and I call him PandaBear.  And when I was pregnant - Nora was Baby Bear.
6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
1 - How great he is with our little girl - he is the most awesome dad ever.
2 - How he puts up with my craziness and my craftiness and my ocd and my insane ideas
3 - I just love him.  He is a great person and I'm thankful to wake up next to him every day!
7. Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?
Well, let's start with a little back story first.  I found out I was pregnant in November 2010, and when I told Paul he told me that he had planned on asking my Dad if he could marry me, and then we had to tell my parents we were expecting our little bundle of joy instead.  So me being all preggers, was not expecting any proposals in the near future.  That Christmas we went to Runaway Bay Jamaica to the Gran Bahia Principe with friends of ours.  I packed the suitcases with Paul and saw that he did NOT put any rings in the suitcases....  We arrived at around 3pm on the Saturday night and Paul asked me to go for a walk on the beach with him.  It was really romantic and we made a habit of it.  On the second night I mentioned to him that it would have been the perfect proposal spot and he played dumb and said "If I had known you though that I would have brought the ring", and I of course, believed him and being hormonal - got a little bit angry at him.  The third night we were going for dinner at one of the nicer restaurants so we got dressed up and went down for our walk on the beach.  Paul had to roll up his nice pants so he kept having to stop along our walk to re-roll them (they just wouldn't stay up for some reason lol).  And I just keep walking along.  So he started asking silly questions and then asked, "so what are your plans for the future?"  And I thought he meant the next day, so I talked about how I wanted to go down to the beach and maybe go to the spa... and then he said, "I meant, what are your plans for forever?"  At this point I turned around and he was down on one knee with the ring in his hand.  He then asked me "Will you be my wife?" and I of course said yes, and then started crying and then at this point some fool on the beach yells "HOLY F***!!  I think that guy just proposed!!"  It was cute and romantic and absolutely perfect.

8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?
He's a bit of both.  Although this year, he was awesome and gave me Twilight: Breaking Dawn.
9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
I like sunsets on the beach but lately I'm way more of a movie and couch 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 love to go to Europe and see the Eiffel Tower together.
11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
Well, Paul has a midterm tomorrow morning... so we had a pizza dinner together and now he's going upstairs to study all night lol.
12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
 Nope lol

13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
 Communication is key.  Always say what's on your mind - otherwise the other person will never know if something is bugging you.

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