We have known each other for years. We grew up together as good friends, went to school together, and even kept in touch through the college years. After I graduated, I relocated and ended up in the same city as John. That was the year we started dating and have been together ever since. We eventually moved in together and on our fifth anniversary he proposed! Through all those years of friendship, we developed a strong love and respect for one another. We are so blessed to have each other!
