Danielle and Ryan are one of those long distance couples that makes you believe in the phrase, ‘love conquers all.’
Ever since my first long-distance relationship ended (and the fact that I was 16 had NOTHING to do with it, I swear), I haven’t been a believer in the long distance thing. Then I saw Road Trip and heard the boys say ‘if you’re not in the same zip code, it’s totally not cheating,’ and all my bets were off. It’s just hard, man. It’s hard to be miles and miles away from the one you love. I’m not interested.
But then I met Danielle and Ryan. I spent a super fun hour with them and their dogs and knew they had something special. And then I started stalking their blogs and learned more about their story and now I know this couple’s the real thing. They’re love is legit.
Ryan is in his third season of minor league baseball for the Toronto Blue Jay organization, living across the country from his beautiful fiance, Danielle. Now, my brother played minor league ball so I know the inside scoop on that lifestyle and it’s not an easy gig. Mentally, physically, emotionally, financially, relationship-ally…it’s a tough road.
But Ryan and Danielle have something stronger than huge dirt mounds and rocky roads. Danielle is 100% supportive of Ryan and his dream. She encourages him and pushes him to be better, even though he’s chasing his dream 2500 miles away from her. One day they’ll live together and have the happy life as one that they’re meant to have. They know times can be tough but tough times come and go. They’re committed to one another and will stand up to the tests of time, miles, jobs, constant change and anything else. Their love will conquer all; their love is for all time.
