How They Met:
"It all started in 2007. We were both in the 8th grade. Johnny played basketball and I cheered. Every game I would watch him and hope that one day I would bring up the courage to talk to him. One day in Mrs. Patron's English class, we started talking and the rest is history..."
"For Valentine's Day, Johnny decided to plan a whole day worth of dates. We started out ice-skating at Lock 3. Followed by dinner at Table Six. After that, we headed to a movie. After driving through a blizzard, he told me plans were changing and he would find something for dessert at home. Once we got to our apartment, I got my pajamas on and was getting ready for bed when I smelled something burning. I came out to see a table filled with flowers, candles, and a cake that read "Will you marry me?" I turned around to see my best friend on his knee."
Where Are They Now?:
"Johnny and I have been married a little over 2 years. We are excited to grow our family, and welcome our baby boy in the world this Summer. Johnny is a nurse in the CCU at Aultman Hospital. I am currently working as an Admissions Counselor at Walsh University, and finishing up my Master's in School Counseling. We enjoy traveling, hanging out with friends and family, and trying new restaurants."
