J & B -Forever

Brittany

 

  • How did you meet?

    On Match.com... I’d been on the website for 1 week. I was attracted to his eyes and impressed by his haircut and had to let him know it looked damn good!!

  • What did you first think of Joshua?

    I thought he was sooooo handsome but also smart . He can hold an intelligent conversation and is actually knowledgeable about the topics. Met my “know it all” match.

  • How did you start dating?

    Our 1st date was at Smashburger followed by a drive in movie... (that we didn’t watch!)

  • How did you know that Joshua was the right one for you?

    I could choose about a thousand different small moments that led up to me knowing in my heart. But most importantly, it was how he always puts my needs before his own in our daily lives. He loves me but also loves my daughter... he inserted himself and immediately began to help. Couldn’t call myself a single mother anymore. Be it picking up my daughter and his son after school, helping take care of sick kids, making sure we have everything we need. We’ve had some tough days balancing co-parenting but Josh has sat with me through ALL of it and vise versa. He also has always made sure that I KNOW that I am loved.

  • How would you describe the dynamic of your relationship? How would others describe it?

    The ISTJ - me and the INTJ -joah. Lmao! We are kinda the same person. Match.com did it’s job! Lol Josh is more of an introverted thinker/ does the big things.... but I’m a bit more extroverted planner/do-er and handle a lot of the smaller missed details.

  • Tell me three things you love about Joshua.

    He has an inner strength that keeps me calm in chaos. He loves being a father & does an amazing job at it! He takes his role of being a provider seriously His integrity.... in business, relationships, & in day to day life.

  • What are some of Joshua's quirks? What are things about Joshua that drives you a little crazy — things that only you could love.

    The talking through ALL of my fav tv shows and all the movies I want to watch. But when a movie/show/video he wants to watch is on everyone must be silent. So annoying..... but we’re working on that ! Ha! We’re both very smart and sometimes it becomes an annoying unspoken competition of “who’s smarter”..... but iron sharpens iron.

  • How did the proposal happen?

    That day we were planning to attend a birthday party at a silent headphones event. The kids were with grandparents so i had every reason to get all dolled up. We had dinner at Saint Rocco's New York Italian in Trinity Groves and after dinner Josh wanted to walk over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge and view the Dallas Skyline... once we got up the hill and with the skyline behind him he got one one knee and asked me if I loved him, if we had fun together and would I do life with him..... with tears in my eyes i said: “YES YES AND YAAAAAASSS!!!!” We spent the rest of the night partying/celebrating with friends

  • Name three memorable experiences you’ve been through together as a couple.

    Buying our 1st home together & the stress of major renovations it getting through it!! Seeing Janet Jackson live in concert! Seeing Marvels Black Panther together on opening night!

  • What values are important to you as a couple?

    Family Balance Financial Stability Communication Honesty Integrity Flexibility/Adjustment

  • Where do you see yourselves in five years? What are you most looking forward to in your future as a couple?

    I’m excited to do life with Josh. I think we have a bright and prosperous future.... in 5 years our kids will a bit older and we may have another one. I’d like to see him excelling as a Game Designer... I see myself further along in my mortgage career and prospering as a small business owner.

  • If you were reading this blog post in twenty years, what would you want to remember about your life right now?

    Just how incredibly blessed we really are.... two people, that randomly met, loving each other, blending families and coparenting. I pray that in 20 years we are still holding on strong... & still in Love!

I have Joshua and Brittany's love story to share with you today! This was a fun, relaxed couple who wanted a beautiful day all about the two of them and their kiddos (plus a few family members on various devices! ) We made it happen! 

Joshua- 

  • How did you meet?

    We meet on Match

  • What did you first think of Brittany?

    That she was a very beautiful and strong woman

  • How did you start dating?

    After 2 really long and deep conversations we decided to go out on our first date.

  • How did you know that Brittany was the right one for you?

    I felt that she could possibly be the one from the jump. Because of our great first few conversations; it was obvious that we had the right things in common and that the things I was weaker at she was strong. over the time of the first few months she was very supportive and that is something that I was looking for. And over time I found myself planning for our future and I had a hard time imaging life without her.

  • How would you describe the dynamic of your relationship? How would others describe it?

    Typical Modern family. We both work and we share most of the house responsibilities equally. She is a really hard worker, I am really driven. I focus on the big picture she makes sure we don't miss any details.. This allows us to set family goals and execute them. Just a really sound home unit. Its still new to us both but I feel like we are trending up.

  • Tell me three things you love about Brittany.

    She is a strong communicator, she is strong, and very intelligent......but for good measure she is also beautiful and sweet.

  • What are some of Brittany's quirks? What are things about Brittany that drives you a little crazy — things that only you could love.

    LOL, she is a Bubble baby. Allergic to everything She has been through a lot in her past, she tends to assume .... the worse or negative things behind what I'm saying at times. I know where where it comes from so I try my best to be patient and I am so thankful that she is working on that, cause I love her and I don't say things to purposely. Deathly afraid of bugs. to the point of paranoia!

  • How did the proposal happen?

    I proposed on the Margret hunt bridge, after we had an amazing dinner and before we went out with friends.

  • Name three memorable experiences you’ve been through together as a couple.

    Our First date, it was really fun and something I look back on . We went to a Janet Jackson concert together And our first trip together, we went to Denver, CO

  • What values are important to you as a couple?

    Love,Family First , Honesty , Communication, and Discipline

  • Where do you see yourselves in five years? What are you most looking forward to in your future as a couple?

    Happily married with big kids and maybe a new baby. Stable careers, financially thriving, and traveling more

  • If you were reading this blog post in twenty years, what would you want to remember about your life right now?

    How it all started. It hasn't been easy, but it has been great. I wouldn't change it and I love living it. But more specifically I would love to look back and laugh at things that we thought really mattered or that disagreed on. Older smart and more in love than we are now.

Thank you so much J & B for allowing Just Elope Dallas to be a part of your love story! We wish you a lifetime of happiness!
