Valentine's Day Survey

I saw this Valentine's Day survey on one my favorite blogs to read (thanks for sharing all your answers Kristen!) and thought it was a fun idea. Here are my answers!

  1. When was your "engagement" anniversary? November 29, 2002 (Corrected . . . I went back and checked! We got engaged on the day after Thanksgiving, so it was easy to figure out :) )
  2. When is your "marriage" anniversary? January 3, 2004
  3. How long have you known your spouse? 10 1/2 years
  4. How long did you date/court before you were engaged? A little over 3 years
  5. Where did you meet your spouse for the first time? I believe it was at a youth activity. Some friends of ours were having a welcome party of sorts for me and my sister because we had just moved to town.
  6. What is your spouses name? Trent

  19. Where did you honeymoon? Disneyworld
  20. Leave a piece of marriage advice. I found this poem before we got married and I really liked it, so I'll post it as my piece of marriage advice.
Marriage Takes Three:
I once thought marriage took just two to make a go, 
But now I am convinced it takes the Lord also.
And not one marriage fails where Christ is asked to enter,
As lovers come together with Jesus at the center.
But marriages seldom thrive and homes are incomplete,
Till He is welcome there to help avoid defeat.
In homes where Christ is first it is obvious to see,
Those unions really work, For marriage still takes three.
