Good Morning & Happy Friday!

As you probably know, Valentines Day is coming up this weekend and I’ve been seeing the cutest challenge going around on social media called the “Valentines Day Challenge”. I’ve always loved Valentine’s Day. It’s probably because of all the delicious sweets {ha!} and cute flowers are everywhere but something about reminding those you love just how much you love them {whether it’s friends, family, significant others) is something that I think should be celebrated more often than not. So, I’m all about when a little extra love is in the air come February 14th.

For today’s post, I thought I would take part in the valentine’s challenge here on the blog! Plus, come to think of it, I’ve never actually shared a post about me and Nick, so here goes!

How did you meet?

We met through Nick’s sister who turned out at the time to be my boss at a law firm I was working at. She messaged me and asked if I was dating anyone and said she has a really cute single brother. {She was so right — he was the cutest ever! ;)} So, a few days later I got a message on Facebook from him asking if I’d like to meet him at Starbucks for coffee and on November 5, 2012 we met up after work and the rest is history. Now looking back, we were both SO INCREDIBLY SHY and I don’t know how we survived that first date but we did it and here we are 8 years later.

Second date? 

We went rock climbing at a local indoor climbing gym. He says now that he knows me, he wouldn’t have trusted his life in my hands like he did that night when he was repelling. HAHA! Let’s just say I wasn’t the most experienced climber and didn’t quite have the tightest grip on the rope that day as he was climbing down…but he didn’t die so …there’s that. 😉

Who’s older/Age difference? 

I am 31 and he’s 38. Fun fact: He’s the same age as my sister and brother-in-law and his younger brother and I graduated high school the same year. (2007)

Who said “I love you” first? 

Yikes. I don’t remember. Oops.

Who’s Taller?


Most impatient? 

Definitely him.

Most sensitive?

Hands down, me.


Neither of us are very loud in general, unless Arkansas basketball/football is on then he’s yelling at the TV. haha!

Most stubborn?

We’re both pretty hard headed when we want to be. But, I’d say I’m probably the most stubborn.

Falls asleep first? 

Me x 10000.

Cooks better? 

Unfortunately, he is. But, I’m a close second. 😉

Better morning person? 

Absolutely me. Always have been and always will be.

Best Driver?

Without question me. Although, he would whole heartedly disagree. I am 100% the better parker too.  

Most competitive? 

100% he is. I’ve never met a more competitive person.

How long have y’all been together?

We met November 5, 2012 and have been together ever since. So, 8 years and 3 months.

Post a picture of you and your loved one ❤️

Tell me, what’s your ❤️ story?


  1. I love this! My husband is 7 years older than me as well. I love it when people ask how we met…OK Cupid! I was so scared to try online dating and of course I met him the first day and we’ve been together ever since…8 years and one month!
