David and Lauren: Little Moments

It’s been a while since I posted something in the David and Lauren section so here we go! I’m excited to write more about our love story here with the hope of inspiring others and giving others hope that there is someone out there made for them. Today I am going to write about little moments. Those moments when the smallest thing can just steal your heart.

Now, not all relationships are perfect and we have our fights. Dave and I don’t always see eye to eye. Dave is also a guy, so I tend to sometimes get annoyed with little things that he does here and there. However, all those moments when we do fight or get annoyed with each other are erased when a little moment creeps it’s way into our day.

Little moments are great! I love them! For example, when Dave cooks dinner and he gets excited over the way something tastes or smells. Or when he’s chopping herbs and plays the guessing game with me. When Dave comes home from work and he walks over and gives he a kiss on the forehead or a prolonged hug right before he leaves for work.

Little moments like freshly shaved kisses and making a small joke. I’ve learned to appreciate every moment that makes me smile or makes my heart melt. Especially because they outweigh the moments where I am angry or upset or frustrated and annoyed. They make my heart grow with love every time they happen (and they happen a lot). They make me smile or laugh. They make me feel like we are perfect.

Brad Paisley has a song called Little Moments. It describes perfectly how I feel about little moments between Dave and I. Before I leave you with the lyrics, I want to leave you with this advice: Don’t ignore the little moments in life. They are some of the most beautiful things life is made of. Take them as they come. Enjoy!

Little Moments

Well I’ll never forget the first time that I heard
That pretty mouth say that dirty word
And I can’t even remember now what she backed my truck into
But she covered her mouth and her face got red
And she just looked so darn cute
That I couldn’t even act like I was mad
Yeah I live for little moments like that

Well that’s just like last year on my birthday
She lost all track of time and burnt the cake
And every smoke detector in the house was goin’ off
And she was just about to cry until I took her in my arms
And I tried not to let her see me laugh
Yeah I live for little moments like that

I know she’s not perfect but she tries so hard for me
And I thank god that she isn’t ’cause how boring would that be
It’s the little imperfections it’s the sudden change in plans
When she misreads the directions and we’re lost but holdin’ hands
Yeah I live for little moments like that

When she’s layin’ on my shoulder on the sofa in the dark
And about the time she falls asleep so does my right arm
And I want so bad to move it ’cause it’s tinglin’ and it’s numb
But she looks so much like and angel that I don’t wanna wake her up
Yeah I live for little moments
When she steals my heart again and doesn’t even know it
Yeah I live for little moments like that

David and Lauren

Hi! I’m Lauren! I’m the writer of this blog. I am a busy girl who works at a very magical place. I have bigger plans for myself, but this will do for now.

I was inspired to write this blog after my boyfriend David and I started spending a lot of our days off in the parks. Hey, a girl’s mind does tend to wonder when she really likes someone. So thanks David for the inspiration. Since then, I have been doing my best to travel on my days off and find some pretty sweet places. It doesn’t always work out that way. I do have bills to pay and David and I hardly get to see each other unless we have days off together. So I apologize if the blog slips sometimes. I am looking to get a few more partners for the blog…so if you are interested, contact me.

Anyways, a little bit about David and I. I wanted to donate a few posts to our relationship to help inspire other girls to keep looking. Their perfect guy is out there. It just takes some time. Trust me, I don’t know how many guys would put up with my Disney/Wedding obsession.

David and I met during a perfect time of year here. We met during EPCOT’s Food and Wine Festival. This was perfect because David, being a cook, loves both food and wine. Me, being a well rounded lover of almost all things, loves both food and wine as well. We had so much to talk about when we first met. Trying different foods and beverages. Turns out we are both adventurous beer lovers. Who knew!? This has lead to many great conversations and quests in our relationship. “What beer should we try tonight?” is a constant question asked when we are able to have dinner together.

When I met David, I was expecting someone a lot different than I got. When I met David I was only living in Orlando for about two months. I was still getting acquainted with the surroundings and people. I had no interest in finding a guy, getting into a relationship, or anything other than friendship and furthering my career at this point. David was quite a surprise to me.

Before David I had two bad experiences with men. I was in a rather long and abusive relationship in high school and in college I was in a rather short and stupid relationship with a guy who was denying himself what he wanted the whole time (which was an amazing girl to whom he is now happily married and though we don’t talk I am super happy for both of them. They are perfect for each other). I had pretty much given up on guys and I was happy where I was in my life. When I met David, I was expecting a 30 something year old guy with a girlfriend or wife. That was not at all what I got.

David was a young, recently graduated cook who had been working for Disney for about 2 years when I met him. He is very very talented. I tell him this just about every day. I know there are bigger and better things waiting for him outside Disney. However, we are both content for right now. We are gaining experience and trying to save money one penny at a time. We hit it off right away and have been together ever since.

Last month David and I celebrated our one year anniversary. It was very exciting and a bunch of fun. I have fallen in love with my best friend. I think the best part of this is that David has helped me open myself up and become who I am today. I used to tell people all the time how much I loved to do outdoorsy things but I never had time or anyone to do them with. David and I go indoor rock climbing whenever we have a day off together and we love it. He pushes me to be the best that I can be. He supports me when I enter into some dangerous baking quests (which have turned out amazing!) and he is there through all of my frustrations and pain. I’ll focus more on that in another post.

Lesson to be learned: Don’t lose hope. When the timing is right, you will find Mr. Right. I know how cheesy and cliche that sound but it is very true. Believe in love and love will come to you. Just be yourself and let your world fall into place around you. There is no reason to lose hope. If you do, come talk to me.

Much Love

~Lauren~

Your Engagement, Your Story

When getting engaged it is important to remember that might sound like a good idea, may not be the best idea when it comes to your story.

It is important to create the perfect engagement around Your Story. Your Story, the story of your relationship, is something that should be told from engagement through you wedding day. You wouldn’t get engaged at a rodeo if you both hate horses. You wouldn’t have a wedding at Disney World if you didn’t like fairy-tale endings and a Disney vacation. It is important to pick a time and a place that is important to BOTH of you when planning an engagement. Maybe it’s at a favorite restaurant with your closest friends. Maybe it’s during a beach vacation with your families.

The reason why I have dedicated my posts to mainly Disney-themed engagement is because Disney caters to just about everything you could ever think of. Maybe you both are animal lovers, then perhaps Animal Kingdom or Animal Kingdom Lodge is a place for you to propose. Maybe you both enjoy camping and the outdoors, then a nice stroll through Fort Wilderness Campgrounds would be a great idea. If you love traveling, but don’t have any money to explore the world, then a trip to EPCOT’s World Showcase is for you.

Remember, it’s YOUR story. Only YOU know how to tell it. The best part about stories, they go on and on and get passed down from generation to generation.

So when planning your perfect engagement, make sure you consider YOUR story. Where did you begin? Where do you see your lives heading?

My hope for this page is that I can provide the spark that ignites a fire when planning that perfect moment. I hope that I can help you discover options you may have never thought of before. And if I do, let me know!
