A week late, oh well. Valentine's day is this week so I'm fine. It's fine.
1] Who is your oldest friend and how did you meet? My bestie, L. She and I met in kindergarten when both of our father's were stationed at the same base in California. We were not best friends then. We actually were very competitive when we first met. My family moved to DC and her family moved to Japan and we didn't see each other until 4th grade when they stayed with us for a week after moving back to the states. It was besties from then on.
2] Tell us about your circle of support. Who are your people? I'm lucky because I have so many wonderful people in my circle. My sisters, first. Then my besties. Then my fitness besties. Then my kickball besties. I have so so so many fabulous women who support me and want nothing but the best for me. When you find them, hold on tight.
3] How did you meet your partner? Kickball. Yes, kickball. We met on a social league and the rest is history.
4] How is Valentine's day celebrated in your home? My parents always did an amazing job of celebrating Valentine's day for us when we grew up. The sissy's and I always had balloons, candy and fun lil trinkets. I never was a big fan of the pomp & circumstance of V-day when dating. I never was the girl who put pressure on the guy and never freaked out if we didn't do anything big. The day never defined a relationship, ever. With Le Husband we will sometimes cook a special dinner and usually exchange a card.
5] What is your love language? Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch.
6] Do you prefer receiving flowers or chocolates? Flowers, please. Chocolates just go to waste :)!
7] What is the most meaningful gift you have ever received? Roses from Le Husband after we found out I was pregnant. It was so unexpected and so sweet. Two close seconds were clothes from friends unexpectedly, when I was going through a really tough time last year. They both sold clothing and just sent me a lil something and it made my day.
