015: A couple who goes from puppy love to forever love together - Alyssa & Ryan
On this episode of Couple Collective, I had the pleasure to chat with a couple that has been together since 6th grade, Alyssa and Ryan. Not only have they been homies with Emily since elementary school, they have become a couple Em and I love to spend time with. Alyssa and Ryan had that instant puppy love from youth; they were separated in high-school and college but have back together for some time, recently getting engaged! Tune in to learn how they communicate effectively and powered through obstacles with the weight of their joint friends and close knit families on their shoulders.
