We met the old fashioned way...
It goes back a long time - to 9th grade science class. Council Rock North was being renovated, and our science class was moved outside to the trailers for the end of the year. The teacher moved our seats and placed them next to each other - and that was it! In the corner of the room, many jokes were cracked, pieces of Zebra Fruit Stripe gum were exchanged, and lots of under-the-breath giggles were shared. And that was it.
We started out as friends. And now we're best friends.
By the end of high school, countless hockey games had been attended (and won!)....dozens of notes were scribbled and exchanged in the hallways...we went to not one, but two high school proms together...and hours of time were spent bonding over coffee dates in Newtown, reruns of The Office, and Flyers games....and even a beach trip to Long Beach Island. A place that would always be special to us.
College was another four years of "long" distance...and then California called. College distance suddenly felt short. For two years, almost three thousand miles separated us. And now we are here, after so many years of love and happiness! In July 2016 we got engaged in our happy place, Long Beach Island. It was the happiest day of our lives. And now...we're getting married!
Thank you for being here with us. Whichever step of the journey we met you, you were there for us and cheered us on. For those of you with us every step of the way, thank you for your love and guidance. We love you!
