Yesterday I read The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate by Gary Chapman. If you have not read this book, you should. Even if you don't have a mate, it's principles can be used in any loving relationship. Basically Dr. Chapman explains that everyone has a love tank that needs to be filled. To show love to someone you must use their love language, or they may not see your action as "love." The 5 Love Languages are as follows:
- Words of Affirmation
- Quality Time
- Receiving Gifts
- Acts of Service
- Physical Touch
I relayed all the important tidbits to Justin and then we took the quiz. Justin was almost equal in 4 areas. His highest scoring areas were Quality Time and Physical Touch. These were closely followed by Words of Affirmation and Receiving Gifts. He had zero points for Acts of Service.
I also took the quiz. I scored highest in Quality Time followed closely by Physical Touch. I shouldn't have been surprised that we had the same highest scoring love languages. It is rare that we don't "feel" loved by one another.

After considering Key West as my destination wedding location, I had come back home to Orlando to plan my wedding. I am trying to decided between two beautiful locations. The first one in Casa Feliz a old spanish style home in Winter Park. It is so beautiful and I love the whole feeling of the place, but it cannot hold very many people. The second two pictures are of paradise cove in Lake Buena Vista. This place is in the key west style and is more relaxed. I need to decide by tomorrow!
I have not enjoyed wedding planning at all. It just seems overwhelming and you had to act to fast. Justin and I originally wanted to get married in Key West, where his family lives. But after a trip down there, we realized it just may not be possible.
