I am...

a hopeless romantic.
 
I am the girl that wishes that romantic movies happened in real life.
I am the girl who can't wait to see movies like The Vow and The Lucky One (view the trailer over at Emma's blog)

I am the girl that wishes her husband would sweep her off her feet and take her on mushy gushy dates.
 
I am the girl that didn't like Valentine's Day growing up because I never had a Valentine and want to celebrate it now when I am married.
 
I am the girl that loves hand-written love notes.
 
I am the girl that wishes each night, I would come home to find my husband making dinner already with a vase full of flowers for me.
 
I am the girl who believes in kissing each night before we go to bed and holding hands any chance we get.
 
I am the girl that believes in dating each other long after the wedding ceremony occurs.

I am the girl that believes in meeting each other love language (if you haven't heard about love languages, please ask, I'm be happy to inform you :-)

I am the girl that loves receiving sweet texts in the middle of the day.

I am the girl that pretends to not be in love with love and romance but really I AM.
 
When you find love, sew it up tight, don't let any loose threads hang out or else, it will begin to unravel itself. Eventually that thread will be full of knots and you won't be able to tell where the thread begins and ends.

What type of girl are you?

Susan said...

I am seriously right there with you! I'm single and I still love Valentine's Day, it's so sweet and seeing everyone in love just makes my day! I'm really looking forward to the Vow! I hope it delivers like I want it to!

I am a total hopeless romantic. I have always imagined meeting my future husband in a Starbucks..or at a Broadway production (although most guys at Broadway shows are already in a relationship or married. Ha). =)

Brooke Shemwell said...

I really love those pictures. :) Sums up my Valentine's pretty well. I'm all about the husband cooking at home with a bottle of wine, music, and fresh flowers. A night out, Broadway show, and dessert late night are always good too! I really fall for a sincerely written card though. That's my ultimate love token.

Alyssa said...

This is such a sweet post. I'm definitely a hopeless romantic. My boyfriend and I call February "love month" and try to tell each other (more than usual) the things we love about each other. I love it!

Kendall said...

I too am a hopeless romantic! Hubby and I are on a tight budget this year with soon to be 2 under 2...yikes! My goal for Valentines is to hit up the Dollar Tree with Pax and find some special goodies to gift Hubs...and if we can't find anything then it will be heart pancakes for a special family valentines day breakfast!

Sarah said...

Aww I love this post! I feel the same way....I love all of that mushy goodness :)

Mel said...

Cute post. I am a believer in the love languages. Now if only my husband would get with the program when I keep telling him my love language is acts of service! ;)

Amira said...

You're a girl after my own heart! I'm the same way :-) Can't wait to meet ya at the meet-up TOMORROW!

Amira

Regina of Live Delightfully said...

Oh I love this!!! I'm with you on that, I think we're the same type of girl. :)

And YES for the Love Languages. We try to read the book every other year or so because it's definitely good for us.

Have an amazing weekend! :)

marie said...

A vase of flowers and dinner being made? I am that girl too.

I am also the girl that likes to stay in rather than going out. Putting on makeup is such a chore to me. Frozen yogurt in bed? Yes, please!

CALLIE said...

I think we all pretend not to be the mushy gushy type, but deep down we love it!

Simply LKJ said...

Love this post! So sweet. Have a wonderful time at the blogger meet up.

Hilliary@ Happily Ever Healthy said...

I am this type of girl too! I love valentines day, and the little sentimental things that seem small but mean the world! Have a fabulous weekend, and enjoy the blogger meet up!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

I am a single girl who wants to be a hopefless romantic hehe :)

Excited for tomorrow. Hopefully we hear from the other ladies soon so we can finalize times. I didn't realize the meetup is at 1, I thought 2!

Julie said...

I AM the girl that you just described in this post too!!! Every single thing describes me. Such hopeless romantics we are : )

Jessica Polley said...

I love this! I am currently single, but still love Valentines Day. Last year, as a surprise, I mailed all my girl friends cards (the kind kids use from the box).

I'm all about love, in any shape or form.

Kristin said...

LOVED reading this, I agree with all of it!!

So jealous of the meet-up! Wish I was just a few hours closer :( Have fun!!

Little Miss Southern said...

Such a cute blog!!!! Thanks for the sweet comment today!

Cathy said...

This is super cute! I especially love the line about "dating each other long after the wedding ceremony occurs."

We've been married 3+ years and still act like goofy newlyweds :)

Have a great weekend at your meet-up!

Carol {Everyday Delights} said...

I just love all these and I totally agree with you! Have fun at your meetup!

Johanna said...

I love that you shared all of these. There's nothing wrong with being a hopeless romantic and thank goodness for people like you!

Ally Garner said...

I think every girl who was raised watching Disney films & reading fairy tales is a hopeless romantic. So count me in! Beautiful post. And yes, preach on about Love Languages. My hubs & I loved Gary Chapman's book!

BeckyJo606 said...

I LOVE this post! I am such a romantic! I love love love and cherish the times when Rob makes dinner or when he does something really sweet for me. I swear I can live off of that for ages. :) I'm so glad you brought up love languages--so so important!

Katie {katie lately} said...

can we go on a date to see the vow?! Please?

I am totally the same type of girl, by the way. Through and through! I looooooooooove this post.

Mr. Taylor and his Lady said...

you just nailed me on the head. adore all of these things. especially the cheesy movies. can't wait to see those two. i hope they are just perfect and tear jerkers and make you want to cuddle with your boy all night long! :)

Jackie {York Avenue} said...

I can't wait to see The Vow! I love those pictures, especially the buttons. Adorable. Thanks for entering my giveaway, and have a great weekend!

Mrs. Ham said...

my husband knows that i want to see the vow the day it comes out....i made it clear a little while ago! and there is nothing wrong with that! hehe

LeachLOVE said...

Love all the Valentine's day inspirations! I'm friends with oklauren.com have loved going through her list of favorite bloggers!

Michelle @ www.leachlove.blogspot.com

Bethany said...

I love that there are other hopeless romantics out there. This is such a sweet post :)

Ashley {hudson's happenings} said...

I can relate with a WHOLE lot of this...and I am absolutely counting down the days until the VOW!! That is going to be great, I just know it. :)

Katie {Miss Dixie} said...

Aw this was the sweetest post! I'm that girl too and I love celebrating Valentine's Day with my hubby!!

Kristina Gulino said...

Meg! So bummed we missed meeting yesterday at the SoCal Blogger event. There were so many girls there!

This is a darling post. I have never been much of a romantic (maybe it's because I hate crying? Haha!) but it's refreshing to read your entry word-for-word and soak in the feelings that it gave me about my amazing husband. He is the "romantic" out of the two of us, and it just made me smile thinking about it :) I could always use tips on becoming a better Godly wife!

Best,
Kristina
