By the time Grodsky and Scheel started high school, they were further apart. But then, one day, the sparks they once had were reignited like magic. During the start of her freshman year, Scheel was scrolling through her friend’s contact list on her phone. Then she saw Grodsky’s name. She became flushed at the mere sight of his name, and her friends noticed it too. So, they asked her what was up. Then Scheel told her friend about her childhood sweetheart. Once she did, her friend came up with a brilliant plan.

Scheel’s friend decided to reunite her with her preschool love interest. So, she came up with a plan to set them both up, but Scheel had other ideas. “I was a freshman in high school, so I was like, ‘I don’t think so!'” Scheel told People. But her friend decided to reach out to him anyway. Scheel was anxious about the whole thing too. But then, Grodsky surprised her in such an amazing way that all the butterflies in her stomach flew away.

Shortly after Scheel got a text from Grodsky, they both decided to meet. Neither of them knew what to expect, especially since so much time had passed. It turned out that they still had chemistry together. They went to the movies and it was magical. It felt as if they had never drifted apart. They were officially dating two weeks after Grodsky texted Scheel. But the two weren’t out of the woods yet. They still had several more obstacles to overcome before getting their happily ever after.

Grodsky and Scheel saw each other every week and they made the best of the time they had together. But then, college came along, and they knew that this would be difficult on their relationship. “Right after we graduated from high school, we were pretty hesitant,” said Scheel in an interview with People. “We were like, ‘Do we stay together? Do we try to make it work?'” It seemed as though destiny was going to split them up again. But they decided to fight for their love. Scheel enrolled at Northern Arizona University while Grodsky moved to Chicago and enrolled at Columbia College. Even though they lived several miles away, they decided that nothing would ever keep them apart again. And still, Scheel had no idea that Grodsky’s declaration of love in preschool was just as strong today.

During their senior year in college, Grodsky decided to surprise Scheel in one of the most adorable ways ever. “I convinced Laura that we were going to a picnic at the preschool. We had just finished up our junior year of college, so I framed it as a nice relaxing date,” Grodsky told Huffington Post. When they got to their intended destination, Grodsky got down on one knee and popped the big question. “YES” Scheel exclaimed. “I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, is this happening?’” Everything had gone according to Grodsky’s plan. “I proposed to her at the place it all began … our preschool classroom.”
