Happy Valentine’s Day!
I’ve been obsessed with the fashion blog, Gal Meets Glam by Julia Engel. Her style and her husband’s photography is simply awe-inspiring. Last week, Julia sent out her newsletter sharing Q&A’s on relationships. I loved her newsletter so much that I wanted to share with you our relationship Q&A’s!
“How did Mike and I meet?”
We met on an online dating site, PlentyofPhish.com. We both never thought that we would take that route to find love, but it obviously worked! Turned out that we both went to the same college at the same time, had mutual friends, and were even at the same place at the same times.
“What are three fun facts about the two of us?”
Fun facts about Mike:
He is a Blackjack Champion! It’s fascinating to watch how he can run a table. He holds the title of Carnival Cruise Blackjack Champion.
He’s a phenomenal singer.
He LOVES going to the movie theatre.
Mike’s fun facts about me (Mike had two word answers lol):
Police Officer / Special Agent
“What relationship advice do I have to share?”
Julia gave a lot of great advice that I agree with as well:
Enjoy “you” time – Have moments where you spend time with yourself to regroup and stay focused.
Make time for date night – Life is hectic, but always remember to pencil in a date night on the calendar. Mike and I go out to eat once a week at a different restaurant. We enjoy our time together, but can’t get home fast enough to put on our comfy clothes, snuggle with our Breezy boy, and watch our TV shows on DVR.
Acts of kindness - Mike has won on this one. He’ll make sure to have a snack and a glass of wine waiting for me when I get home from work.
Do things together – It’s a special bond between the two of you that you share together. We’ve ordered Blue Apron and have cooked together after our P90X workouts.
Lean on each other – Take the time to listen to each other, and be each other’s support system.
