It's a girl's dream come true for her best friend to officially become her sister! Valerie and I met my first day at college and I connected with her right off the bat. She's extremely easy to talk to, one of the most genuine people I've ever met, full of wisdom, creative, and so much fun to be around. She became my best friend quickly and early on I couldn't help but think she would be a great fit for my brother. Fast forward 7 years - 2 of which she lived with my family; she and Mike FINALLY started dating! They are that couple that people would ask about wondering "how long have they been dating?" But they would tell people they were just friends. One thing you can see from their love story is that timing is everything. Over the time they knew each other they both grew so much so when the time was right, they were ready! These two are so well suited for each other. They are down to earth, goofy, and up for an adventure! Their love is one that allows each other to be completely themselves and that is so freeing! I couldn't be happier for them and can't wait to see what is in store for their future!
