Valentines Day

Hey everybody!!!!!
Just to start off, I want to let everyone know that this is not Bethany writing this post.

This is Clay, her fiance

I was thinking what I could do for Bethany this valentines day that would be really creative and awesome. I almost just went back to the old flower and chocolate routine, but then I thought...

What says romantic better than breaking into someone's blog and doing a surprise post?

Not much.
Bethany has been doing a series of posts about me, so I thought I would surprise her and tell her some of the things I love about her.

So this is for you Bee.
Happy Valentines day!!!!!

- Have you ever taken a good look at Bethany?

Go on. Take a look.

I think we can all agree that she is a Beautiful girl, right? Those big blue eyes that just take you in, That lovely golden hair, the dazzling smile, I mean, the woman is obviously a babe. But, when I say she’s beautiful, there is a lot more to it than first meets the eye. If you have ever met someone who is graceful, who is kind, who you can’t resist getting to know, then you know what I’m talking about. That is the brand of beauty that Bethany has. It’s not just in her looks, but it’s in the way that she holds herself, the presence she has. I can honestly say that I don’t know a lot of people that have that kind of Beauty. One more reason to be in love with her!


- I don’t know about other people, but for me, It just feels nice when you know someone believes in you, and will support your decisions (as long as they’re not really dumb decisions.) And if supporting was a sport, Bethany would be a regular Tiger Woods… Without the car crashing and promiscuity, of course. But seriously, for those of you that know me, you might know that I’m not always super confident with everything I do. I can get discouraged pretty quickly if I don’t have someone backing me up. Luckily, Bethany meets all my supporting needs. She’s always the first to tell me that I can accomplish things, and that she really believes that I can do whatever I want. I really do believe that she would support me in anything I would ever want to do (Except becoming a democrat. I honestly think she would kill me in my sleep if I ever tried that.) But on my list of qualities I require in a significant other, (which is an extensive list), this one is pretty high up

Probably one of the greatest things about Bethany that has always stood out to me, is how compassionate she is. The happiness of other people always comes first for her. She always puts her friends and her family first, and does everything she can to help solve other people’s problems. That is a pretty rare thing to find in people these days. Bethany is really just one of those selfless people that is always ready to give and to help in any way she can.

Bethany never ceases to amaze me with the kind of stuff she wants to do in her life. She dreams big. I realize that this particular statement could be said about numerous people. Everybody has a big dream, right? The only difference between Bethany and other people is she has a whole list of big dreams. We have been working on our list of things we want to do before we die, and she put me to shame with how much cooler her ideas were than mine. Here’s an example. One of my items: participate in a pie eating contest. Her idea: backpack through a foreign country and scuba dive with great white sharks. Do you kind of see the difference? This is one thing that I have always loved about Bethany, she has so many big ideas and goals, and she is not afraid to really try to accomplish them. I really do think that in our life time, Bethany and I will probably get a lot accomplished!


- Ok, I enjoy a good adventure as much as the next guy, But I feel like I’ve always known where to draw the line when it comes to that kind of stuff. Bethany, on the other hand, lost sight of the line years ago. I really do think that she was born without the part of the brain that creates fear. She is willing to try absolutely anything. Let me list off a couple of things that she has done in her 20 years of life. Scuba diving well over 100 times in many different locations, skydiving, ice climbing, rock climbing, traveling to most of the world, and that’s just naming a few. Here’s a couple of examples…

Well, thats just a couple of the things that came to mind, but If I wrote everything that I loved about her, this would be a super blog post.

Well Bee, I just want to let you know that I love you more than anything. You are the ying to my yang, the cheese to my macaroni, the peanut butter to my jelly. You make my life so much better than it should be. I really am grateful for you every day, and how big of a blessing you are to me. I can't wait to marry you.

Here's to a happy life together.
Happy valentines day Bethany

p.s. sorry that this post is so messy looking, this was my first time ever doing this, so hopefully everyone can cut me some slack.
