TBB Asks: Relationships

1. Who is your oldest friend/how did you meet?
    My oldest friend is Crystal and we met in 6th grade. She was new to the state and our school and it was just as we were starting middle school. I had my best friend Shannon at the time, and our middle school had two "teams" and Shannon and Crystal happened to be on the other team that I was so they became best friends and I disliked Crystal for "taking my friend". Cut to the next year and Crystal and I were on the same team, and then we became best friends and she's been in my life ever since! Gotta love middle school drama haha
2. Tell about your circle of support. Who are your people?
    My circle of support is really strong the older I've gotten because I've learned what healthy relationships are. I keep friends who invest in me as much as I've invested in them. A lot of my circle has become my mom friends who I lean on in those mom moments and I appreciate that help SO much. I've also been blessed to develop so many strong relationships with women from blogging--some I've met in person and others I haven't, but still talk to on the phone or text frequently. But I also have my long time friends who I know I can call on at a moment's notice and they'll be there to listen and help. I'm blessed to have my sister-in-laws to include in that list, too, as they've become two of my closest friends.

3. How did you meet your partner?
   On match.com. MG's initials on here stem from him being "Match Guy" when I initially talked about him on the blog and the nickname has stuck around here ever since! He was the one and only person I met on Match and I'd say it worked out pretty well for us :)
4. How is Valentine's Day celebrated in your home?
   Lately, it's pretty low key which is totally fine with me. I'm about quality time and we usually exchange a small gift or something, but have dinner together at home. My favorite part is the card and MG always delivers there! I keep all the cards MG has ever given me.

5. What is your love language?
   Physical Touch and Words of Affirmation

6. Do you prefer receiving flowers or chocolates?
   I'll take either. Flowers are always a nice way to brighten up a room so I love them, especially when they're "just because" flowers. And chocolate always tastes good, so I'll never complain if I get either one.

7. What is the most meaningful gift you have ever received or have given?
   This is hard to narrow down, but I'm thinking about most recently, I got a package delivered that I wasn't expecting around the holidays. And when I opened it, it was an ornament to memorialize the baby who we lost from miscarriage from my friends Lynn and Jess. I immediately teared up at the sentiment and the thoughtfulness of my two sweet friends, during such a tough time.


  1. Such a great post to reflect on the real stuff that matters! XOXO, R

  2. I am so glad the ornament meant so much to you and I am so glad we have met IRL and on here. I have loved watching your relationship with MG grow from dating to married to having kiddos. I am so blessed to have you lady.

  3. ah, I always wondered how you and MG met! That's so sweet; I met my husband via Craigslist(a funny and long story!). I also love the low key Valentine's day-we do the same thing.

  4. i love finding out people's love languages, i find it so interesting. i didn't know you guys met on match, andhow cute that he's the only guy you met on match. meant to be :)

  5. Aw that was so sweetof your friends to send that ornament. I love that he was the only one you met on Match, so perfect!

  6. Such a great post celebrating non romantic and romantic relationship. I'm glad "MG" turned out to be real catch!

  7. I love your statement about friendships and keeping the ones you're invested in. So well said! Thanks for linking up.
