Joe and Jasmine have known each other since middle school at Haysville Junior High and went on to Campus High School together, graduating a couple of years apart (2002 & 2004). Although they were not close friends, they were friendly with each other over the years.
Fast forward to 2015 and the two become closer and talk more often. In 2016 both were going through some life changes and became nearly inseparable, easy to say “best friends”. The two would meet up to talk about life changes, grab tacos on taco Tuesday, check out random local night scenes, and seek out the best coffee they could find. A few vacations as great friends making great memories.
April 21st, 2018 started like any other night. Dancing, shots, hookah, and tons of laughs. The two were out with friends and the night turned into the next day. While having a private conversation about “Who knows what” in a friends laundry room, Jasmine felt something - a spark, and leaned in without welcome and kissed Joe. He immediately asked, “Where did that come from?”. “It came from the heart,” she replied. Slowly and cautiously their worlds changed. Almost a year later the two have blossomed a beautiful and lasting relationship, continuing to grow and love one another deeply.
That night is a forever reminder of the blessing of change between the two. How friendship turned into a “perfect” relationship.
