Peppermayo Love Stories

 

Valentine's Day is here and we can definitely feel the love in the air.

There is nothing quite like a love story though to warm our cold 21st century hearts and remind us of what is important. Significant others, friends, family, pets... Love comes in all different shapes and sizes. This Valentine's Day Peppermayo wants to share with you some of our love stories.

So spread the love and read about some of our team members and their loved ones!

 
 
 

Jaynee and Richie

How did you meet?

Unofficially, we met at the Gaslight hotel at a mutual friend’s farewell in 2013 where Richy sat next to me while I was extremely drunk (maybe passed out) to make sure I didn’t get kicked out. It was love at first sight...I made such a great impression that night that he emailed me a few weeks later asking me out. He rocked up to the date with no shoes (or pants) on and I straight away knew I never wanted to see him again. Four years later, I still see him and he still doesn’t wear shoes.

What are the top 3 things you love about him?

His squinty eyes when he smiles, his love for the outdoors and adventures – he’s got some really impressive Bear Grylls skills; and his energy- you’ll never find him sitting still! (unless you put him on a plane, he’s asleep before the plane leaves the tarmac in an upright position!)

What will you be doing this Valentine’s day?

He’s currently overseas for work so will probably get on Tinder. Do people still use that!? (Unfortunately they do!)

What is she like?

She's very kind, creative and just that perfect bit of cheeky

Is there a special memory you can share?

When she told me "Mummy, I love you more than the stars in the sky....but I reeeeally love pizza so you're equal to that" I mean, probably the greatest compliment I've ever had.

Will you be spending Valentine's day with her?

It'll be her first Valentines Day where she'll actually understand what the days about. Some cute sweet treats and extra cuddles together will be a definite!

 
 
 

Kya and Matt

How did you meet?

Such a romantic story are you ready - we met in target hahaha but yeah I was this shy little 14 year old and he was with a group of his friends but he caught my eye straight away, he was so cute and nervous but he finally built up the confidence to come over and say hello it has now been 4 years and I could not be happier

What are the top 3 things you love about him?

I love his confidence, we are complete opposites I am usually so shy around people but he really takes me out of my shell. He goes above and beyond for his friends and family, putting them before himself. His dance moves, no matter where we are - at the shops, walking along the beach or out partying you could spot this guy in a crowd purely from his dancing it is hilarious and infectious

How will you two be spending Valentines Day?

Hmmm not too sure actually, he usually surprises me. So hopefully a nice romantic picnic on the rock cliff that we used to go to overlooking the ocean with a little cheese platter and a few drinks watching the sunset

When did you two meet?

I had recently had a bad experience with some girls in high-school. I didn’t really have any friends and just wandered into a group of sporty girls. Our first sleepover consisted of sucking the air out of helium balloons and impersonating smurfs. Now 8 years later, she is still by my side, I crash her family vacations and she is the only person who likes my dog. 

What are the top three things you love about her?

No one knows me like she does, she is just so understanding and we completely get each other. Maddie cries at everything, literally everything, however she is the strongest person I know, her strength is honestly overwhelming. 

What is your favourite thing to do together?

Watch Disney movies and eat pizza. We also enjoy a catch up and a cry (I also cry a lot) haha. You can often find us in bed after a night out with a pile of Maccas fries. 

 
 
 
 

Annie and Jake

What was your first date?

Our first date was at a little bar called Tilly Devine – we drank a few glasses of red wine and talked (a lot).

What are the top three things you love about him?

He’s the kindest and most thoughtful person I’ve ever met. His dance moves are ridiculous but hilarious. Together we can clear a dance floor. People mainly laugh. He’s always happy. It can be annoying at 7am on a Saturday morning when he’s singing April Sun in Cuba, but mostly it makes me happier too.

Where can you find the two of you on a Saturday night?

Either out for dinner and drinks with friends, or watching Seinfeld on the lounge at home.
