Oh, hi 2pm on a Wednesday. Where did you come from? Diving in today to answer some questions from The Blended Blog because prompts are perfect for hump days or when the noggin hasn’t quite turned on yet. Want to join?
Who is your oldest friend / how did you meet? I mean, I don’t want to sound biased, but I’m pretty sure I’ve been gifted with the best bestie a girl could ever ask for. She is currently on vacation and I’ve asked her to tell me what she is eating every day and so she is texting me her meal choices. Speaking of food, we used to frequently email each other about what we were eating and we have planned entire vacations around the selection of restaurants. Also, she’s driven me back to school in Albany in a friggin’ blizzard and she’s hilarious and whenever we get together stupid moments ensue. In short, I love her.
Tell us about your circle of support. Who are your people? They are current and past coworkers, friends from college, the jungle gyms of elementary (yup! That’s how long my bestie has been in my life). They are also the friends I’ve rented apartments from, the ones I danced with in high school, bloggy sistahs, the friends and family I’ve met through Bryan, and the people who came into my life for a reason, a season, and a lifetime.
How did you meet your partner? We were actually set up on a blind date—by my ex’s sister! Bryan was sweet and chivalrous and opened doors, which was a refreshing change from the men I had gone out with previously. He also did that thing where he would lead gently by putting his hand on the small of my back. I melted.
How is Valentine’s Day celebrated in your home? Eh, we’re not big on it here. sometimes we go out for a vegan dinner, but typically we try to avoid restaurants on that day. Two years ago, we were in Jamaica kind of by accident, so that was pretty cool!
What is your love language? Quality time. It’s a big one for me.
Do you prefer receiving flowers or chocolates? I might be in the minority here, but I’d prefer flowers to chocolate and dogs to flowers any day 🙂
What is the most meaningful gift you have ever received or have given? The first year we dated when Bryan was still courting me (ha!), he snuck into my apartment (well, he had a key so technically nothing illegal, lol) and he made me a vegan FEAST after work. My favorite holiday ever!
And there you have it. Would love to read your answers!
