Matt Stem and Michelle Blattner met on the first day of high school. The year was 2000, and during the welcome assembly at Norristown Area High School, a sarcastic comment led to a friendship over the next several years.
"We were friends, but each of us always had a significant other," wrote Michelle. "We even took our prom pictures at his house senior year."
As the years wore on, the pair realized that they wer made for one another. Their son Ethan was born in May 2007, followed by another son, Parker, in February 2009.
One day Matt won a free trip to Hawaii and during a seven-hour layover in Las Vegas, the couple were married. Hawaii become their honeymoon.
According to Michelle, Matt owns his own carpentry business while she works at a local gym and writes for parenting websites.
"Our favorite things to do as a family are going hiking, playing outside, and being active," wrote Michelle. "I love our love story and our little family. I can't wait to see what the future holds for us!"
