What's YOUR love story?

In the spirit of Valentines Day I decided to link up with a fellow blogger Becky.
1. How long have you and your significant other been together?
We just celebrated our 3 year wedding anniversary and our 6 year dating anniversary on 2/10.
2. How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
I was 18, he was 26. We were working across from each other at an outlet mall close to where we live. He used to sit outside my store on a bench during his breaks and read. (Although in 6 years I have never seen him touch a book or a magazine.) One day he stopped in my store to see if I wanted anything from the food court to drink (I always worked alone). I said yes and we instantly started talking. Later that night we talked on the phone for hours. Trying to learn everything about each other. We decided that we would go on our first date the next night (2/10/06). We planned to leave from the outlet mall once we both got off work, however when my dad found out how old he was and that I wasn't coming home before my date so he could meet my parents he pitched a fit. So we drove to my house so Patrick could pass the test. He did.. and the rest is history. 6 years later, I still get butterflies when he smiles at me. We laugh all the time. I fall more in love with him every day and I am so glad he is mine.

Our "1 month" dating anniversary.
3. If married, how long have you been married?
We have been married 3 years and 4 days. :)

4. If you are married, where did you get married at? Big or small wedding?  Small. We got married at our friends house. On their front porch (yes in the middle of feb). We tried to do things as cost efficient as possible. So we invited only 40 people. Our immediate family and a very few of our closest friends. It was perfect.

5. Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!For him:
Angel boy
& Cookie (He is always warm.. like a cookie ha)
For me:
6. Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
His laugh.
His personality. He is almost always happy. He doesn't let things get to him.. like I do.
The fact that I know he loves me.
7. Tell us how he proposed?
We were laying on the couch watching tv and I was almost asleep. He got off the couch and I got irritated because he can never sit still. So while I am glaring at him he asks me to marry him. LOL
8. Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?
Flowers and a card guy.
9. Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
Pop a movie in and relax on the couch.
10. Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
We both want to travel to Greece. Mostly the Greek Islands but really just all of it.
11. Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
For the second year in a row I am taking my cousin Stacy to the movies. She is my Valentine date this year. Patrick usually has to work.
12. Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
No, we just got back from a cruise a few days ago. We celebrated our Anniversary and Valentines Day for 7 days. :)
13. Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
I'm no expert. But I think something that works for us is listening to each other. If you don't listen to each other you're missing out on so much in each others lives.
14.  Show us a picture of what love means to you.
Can you tell he loves me? :)

Happy Valentines Day.
