“Laura and I met in preschool,” Matt explained to The Way We Met. “One of my very first memories is of being three years old and standing up in front of my pre-school class, declaring that I would marry her someday.”

The two shared many memories as young children. “As kids, Laura taught me how to ride the swings, draw rolling hills and the ‘right way’ to properly eat string cheese,” Grodsky said. “We have fond memories of playing hide-and-go-seek, chasing after each other on the playground and mischievously staying up during nap time.”

He continued, “I was enamored with Laura as a child and I still am to this day.”

Are you crying yet?

The couple did lose touch for some time after entering elementary school. They reconnected in high school through a mutual friend and within two weeks, they made their relationship official.

Laura and Matt’s relationship managed to last throughout all the drama, stress and emotional roller coasters that come with high school.

Although they attended different high schools, that was probably for the best considering they also went to college in different states. Laura and Matt are proof that long distance can actually work.

"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."

The couple were married, surrounded by all of their family and friends and, like a true fairytale, they have been happily married ever since.

Hopefully there’s still time for all of our baby crushes to come find us.
