Being kids together. Growing up together. Becoming teens together. The chapters of their lives always intertwined and weaving in and out, yet remaining independently separate. There were some close calls. Some instances that border on dating, or at the very least – flirtation.

During a Cardinal game in 2009, Kristin’s friend Jen saw a couple friends of hers. After the game was over, her friends Darren and Jeremy waited for them to say hi. As they walked up, Kristin and Darren’s eyes met. She sweetly introduced herself, and could not get over how cute he was. As any good girl would do when talking to a cute guy – she asked him how to spell his name. Yes, that’s right. Because Darren could be spelled a plethora of different ways.

It isn’t complicated. It isn’t as mushy as a romance novel, or as entangled as a romantic comedy. It’s boy meets girl. It’s the little “pictures” in your memory you look back on and smile. It’s the simplicity of caring for someone so much – it sometimes makes you feel like you’ll burst at the seams with joy.
It’s real life. And that is the most perfect story of all.
