May you all have a day full of much love & feelings of being special…you are all very special to us!

I recently came across a multitude of childhood sweetheart stories that I wanted to share…they are too cute not to! If you have any childhood sweetheart stories, please share them with us!

Again, happy valentine’s day! Much love!!

Middle School Memories I met my fiancé when we were in middle school. After school we were standing outside at what was called “the car riders.” While standing close to him I realized that he was wearing sandals. It’s weird but I like to look at people’s feet, and I noticed his toes. Being the outspoken person that I am I went over to him and announced that he had ugly feet! He proceeded to put his feet in my face and ask me, “Do you want to suck my toe?” It was love at first sight! We have had our ups and downs but we are still very much in love still! — Jenna from Traveler’s Rest, S.C.

Follow the Yellow Brick Road I met my husband in our 8th grade year. He was sitting at his lunch table when I first noticed him. It was in the middle of winter so I asked him if he had ever been ice-skating. He was a little embarrassed but admitted that he hadn’t. So I offered to take him that weekend. I drew a map to my house and highlighted in yellow crayon the route he should take to get there. For the instructions I wrote, “Follow the Yellow Brick Road”. Now, 12 years and three kids later, we couldn’t be happier!! — Diana from LaGrange, Ky.

Icy Lake, Warm Hearts Don and I met at Walton’s Skating Rink in Mentor-on-the-Lake when I was nine and he was eleven. That was 49 years ago. We’ve been married for 33 years. — Christine from Painesville, Ohio

Puppy Love I have known my Valentine since I was seven years old. We met waiting for the school bus together and didn’t really hit it off at first. He and I could not stand each other at first and regularly got into fights. But over the years we became friends and eventually fell in and out and in love again. 12 years ago we began dating, 1 year later he proposed to me at our favorite spot in the Metro Parks and 1 year after that we were married. We now have three beautiful children: two boys and one girl. Every day, not just once a year, I am so glad my husband Rob is my Valentine!— Winnie from Cleveland, Ohio

Childhood Premonitions Years ago a friend introduced me to my future hubby at Sunday River Ski Resort in Newry, Maine. I thought nothing of the encounter because I wasn’t looking for love; I had recently dumped a cheating Mr. Very Wrong and had zero interest in relationships.To my surprise this man showed up at my workplace a few days later and asked me out. I almost said no, but he was wearing a very unusual hat! Imagine a big flat blue fish lying on top of his head, with two gold tassels hanging off of the fishtail down his back. Who would wear such a thing in public-even at a ski resort? I just had to find out, so I hesitantly said yes.On our first date we went skiing, then we visited his childhood home in Bethel, Maine-only 2 miles down the same country road from my childhood home! We knocked on the door and the owner happily gave us a house tour. Afterwards we went out to eat-and ordered the same meal, down to the same salad dressing.We met once as children-he was seven years old and I was four. We were hiding behind our parent’s pant legs, stealing peeks at each other. He looked me up and down, saw that I was ‘just a girl’ and he ran off to play by himself.A thought popped into my five-year-old head. “I’m going to marry him,” to which I immediately said out loud, “Ew! Boys are gross! Yucky!”Thirteen years later we are very happily married with two wonderful daughters, ages five and seven. — Melissa from Winthrop, Maine

Summer Romance My sweetheart grew up in the town my parents were raised in. I grew up 100 miles south, but met him the summer I was 11 years old, while visiting my grandparents. He was my “boyfriend” that summer. We saw each other occasionally through the years, and when we were 16, he asked me out. We dated for the first two years while living 100 miles apart. When he went to college in Madison, Wis. I moved there and got a job.When we introduced our parents to each other, we found that they already knew each other. Besides going to school together, my mother had dated his father in high school.We married in 1984, at the age of 21. Almost 24 years and four children later, we are more in love than ever. I am thankful every day for the blessing he has been in my life!— Julie from Lodi, Wis.

Grade School Sweethearts Reunited Love was the last thing that I expected to find when my best friend and I went out for a night of fun at the Iowa State Fair nearly five years ago. I was a divorcee with three kids, having fun just being single. My friend Missy and I were talking and playing games, when I noticed a gorgeous man about 15 feet across the way. I said to my friend, “Oh my Lord- that is the man I am going to spend the rest of my life with!” I asked her to hold my drink and wait for me, while I approached him.I walked up to the handsome man and asked what his name was, breathless as I drank in his appearance. “Jeremiah,” he responded. In an instant, just a mere second, my mind reacted. Could this be the young man that had been my boyfriend 16 years before? Was this the boy that I would follow around, hoping to see skateboard with his rebel mohawk haircut? Was it the same boy who I had shared my first kiss with on the playground at the now nonexistent Rice Elementary School? It had to be- how many Jeremiah’s could there be in the city of Des Moines, Iowa?And then, he smiled. There was that ever-present dimple on his cheek. He was my first kiss.I grabbed him by the back of the head and kissed him again, passionately, knowing that he would be my last first kiss.I squeezed him tightly, and said, “You’re the first boy I ever kissed.”He asked, “Wait- what is your name?””Sheryl.””Sheryl Sundberg? Where have you been all of my life?””Well, I got married, had three kids, got divorced, and now I’m standing at the Iowa State Fair- talking to you.””You’ve got three kids?,” he remarked unbelievably. “I can’t wait to meet them!”Jeremiah and I have been together ever since that night. We were boyfriend and girlfriend in grade school, but lost touch because my family moved. We will celebrate our three-year wedding anniversary this June and are working on adding to our family of five. — Sheryl from Pleasant Hill, Iowa

Still Toe-gether I met my now-fiance when we were in middle school. After school, we were standing outside at what was called “the car riders.” While standing close to him, I realized that he was wearing sandals. It’s weird, but I like to look at people’s feet, and I noticed his toes. Being the outspoken person that I am, I went over to him and announced that he had ugly feet! He proceeded to put his feet in my face and ask me, “Do you want to suck my toe?” It was love at first sight! We have had our ups and downs, but we are still very much in love still!— Jenna from Travelers Rest, S.C.

Long-Distance Love We met when we were both 13 years old here in South Carolina. He was from here, I was from Alabama. We got to see each other about twice a year, but we kept in touch through letters. I looked forward to every letter that was sent. I also recieved a music box from him about a year after we met, and I still have it. When we were 19, he came to Alabama and asked me to marry him. I said yes, and two kids and 44 years later, here we are. We hope to renew our vows this year on our 45th anniversary. The Lord has truly blessed us.— Pauline from Liberty, S.C.

Making Memories It was in third grade at St. Thomas Aquinas School in Derry that I saw this cute boy with a very cute smile. His name was Joey. He seemed to always show up at my house when I would have pool parties; he’d come with a group of boys and girls that I invited. Joey and I went through grade school and went on to middle school together and hung around with the same group of people. I really got to know him and really liked him more and more.As we moved onto high school, we became closer and closer. He finally asked me out and wanted to take me to the prom. I accepted and was so happy I thought I was going to jump out of my skin. You see, Joey was this jock. He played every sport well, and I loved watching him play. We went to the prom, had a wonderful time and made lots of memories.We graduated from high school in June 1978, and we married September 1978. We have three beautiful children and three handsome grandsons. Joey and I continue to make some wonderful memories, and I fall in love with him more and more every day.— Sharon, Sanford, Fla.

Neighbors I met my sweetheart when I was 10. We lived across the street from each other, we will be married 25 years this May.— Patricia Rogers, Jacksonville, Fla.

Love Notes It was the first day of 7th grade in a new city and a new school. When I walked into class, the first thing I saw was a beautiful girl with a ruffle jean skirt on. She had a sideways ponytail and turned and smiled at me as soon as I walked in the class. I ended up sitting right behind her. For the first half of the morning, I did nothing but stare at the back of her head and wish that I would get the nerves to just say hello. After lunch, she passed me a note that said, “Someone in this class likes you — guess who.”After I guessed every single girl in the class (besides her, of course), and after the note had been passed several times (every time I was wrong she would write — ‘guess again’), I finally received the note back. On the note, she just wrote “me” with a smiley face. I fell in love, and more than 15 years later, we are married with two beautiful sons. It was love at first note pass. — John, Portland
