Guilty Pleasures: Drinks from Sonic and ice cream cones

Pets: Norma, a three-year-old black lab. “We talk to her like she can understand us, sometimes forgetting she isn’t our actual child.”

Nicknames: She calls him Bud; he calls her Babe.

Age Gap: There’s only a 25-day age difference between them.

Relationship Rule: Always remember you’re on the same team.

In 10 Years They’ll Be: Living closer to their families with a houseful of kids — all while running their own home décor shop.
