Many people say Luke and I go together like “peanut butter and jelly.” Well the craziest thing is we work very hard on our relationship to have the beautiful relationship we have.
We met the night he graduated from high school, back in 1999. Oddly, he was really good friends with my cousin, Frank, but we had never truly crossed paths until that night. He went off to Michigan State and I was going to School in Duluth. He wants me to note that I am 6 months older than he is (but a grade higher). Our paths continued to cross until he moved back to MN in 2006.
Most recently someone said “You and Luke are so happy and genuinely love each other.” I smiled and said “thank you” but truly its because we work on our marriage, every.single.day.
Our story has almost every emotion possible tied to it, but at the end of the day, we fall in love with each other more and more each day.
