Laura Scheel and Matt Grodsky have been friends for more than 20 years. The couple shared humble beginnings, staying up to chat during nap time and being inseparable on the playground, learning about life together and being best friends even after several years apart.
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.” Matt wrote.
They lost touch when they started going to different schools, but their families always sent Christmas cards back and forth. They saw a picture of one another every year, and when Laura had the chance to contact her friend Matt again, she realized that she was a bit nervous.They reconnected through a mutual friend and immediately fell into that familiar friendship they had shared as children. Within a few weeks, they began dating. Even though they attended different high schools, they were madly in love.
When it came time to choose colleges, they followed their dreams, attending universities in different states but always keeping their relationship alive.
During one trip, Matt took Laura to visit their old preschool…and got down on one knee! She couldn’t believe it!The preschool sweethearts were married, planning to spend as much of their lives together as possible! His preschool promise to marry her came true, and they couldn’t be happier!
