TBB Asks Relationships

So I’m back and ready to catch up on all of your comments for the last week or so. Thank you for all your comments. I am ready to get back to everyday life. At least for a bit. Today is a TBB Asks post and the topic is relationships. .


1. Who is your oldest friend/how did you meet? Well other than family, that would be Brandy. We met when we were super young. Like Kindergarten. Even though we have families, busy work schedules and life that gets in the way, we try to meet up a few times a year. I wish it was more but we live about an hour apart.

2. Tell us about circle of support. Who are your people? Well my blogging community. I have made the best friends who listen to my rants, who answer my texts at all hour and are there cheering me on. Also my family. Immediate and extended. My family watches the girls, comes to all the parties, celebrations, dinners and everything in between.

3. How did you meet your partner? At work in October 2006.

4. How is Valentines Day celebrated in your home? We usually do a dinner at home now that we have kids. I usually get Valentine cards and goodies for my kids and husband and keep it simple.

5. What is your love language? I still need to take a test and really find out.

6. Do you prefer receiving flowers or chocolates? Flowers. But I have a ton of chocolates that I just brought back from Belgium so everyone is getting chocolate this time.

7. What is the most meaningful gift you have ever received or given? Wow that is hard. I did give Rory a Valentine’s gift of concert tickets to see Black Keys and a weekend getaway with it. But otherwise it would be a sentimental piece of jewelry that I have received. Like pearls for graduation from my parents or many pieces of jewelry that Rory gave me that we’re stolen when our house was broken into in 2011.

  7. I love pieces of jewelry that are keepsakes. Did you ever get your jewelry back that was stolen? That's just the worst. I dont get people that think they can just take things!!!!

    1. Yes I am. Though we don't get to hang out often enough, we are still friends and keep in contact. It was sooo difficult to lose those pieces of jewelry, but I am slowly building my collection up.

  10. I can't imagine any of your loved ones will be mad about Belgian chocolate! Yummm. My love language is Quality Time, which is so spot on. I'll be interested to hear what yours is once you take the test!
