If you want to believe that love at first sight exists, then look no further than this newly engaged couple.
They shared their story on the Instagram account The Way We Met, which compiles touching stories of couples from all over the Internet.
The man who penned the post shared side-by-side pictures of him and his main squeeze, Laura, then and now.
He also gave a detailed account of one of his earliest childhood memories: a bold preschool classroom announcement.
"Laura and I met in preschool. One of my very first memories is of being 3 years old and standing up in front of my pre-school class, declaring that I would marry her someday. As kids, Laura taught me how to ride the swings, draw rolling hills, and the 'right way' to properly eat string cheese."
He went on to detail that the two drifted apart during elementary school and the only contact he had with her was through family Christmas card exchanges. It wasn't until they were reunited in high school, after a mutual friend set them up together, that they reconnected. Two weeks later, they were dating.
They also maintained a long-distance relationship while in college, and on May 23rd, 2015, he decided to pop the question to Laura in the place where it all began: their preschool classroom.
Laura and I met in preschool. One of my very first memories is of being 3 years old and standing up in front of my pre-school class, declaring that I would marry her someday.
As kids, Laura taught me how to ride the swings, draw rolling hills, and the 'right way' to properly eat string cheese. We have fond memories of playing hide-and-go-seek, chasing after each other on the playground, and mischievously staying up during nap time.
I was enamored with Laura as a child, and I still am to this day. Eventually, we lost touch upon entering our Elementary School days and for the next seven years, our family's annual Christmas cards was the only way we ever saw each other's faces. It wasn't until High School that we reconnected by happenstance through a mutual friend.
Within two weeks, we decided to be boyfriend and girlfriend. We continued to date through out all of High School, even though we went to different schools. We even stuck together long-distance while attending colleges in different states.
We remained a resilient couple until May 23rd, 2015 when I decided to stay true to my preschool pledge and make Laura my wife. I proposed to her at the place it all began ... our preschool classroom.
