It conjures kisses and disses, but for Lauren and Robert the kisses have it. Decades after first love at 15, they reunited and reignited. No letting it slide this time, despite the inconvenience of those long states that separated them. They revisited their old haunts, recreated their first dates and knew very quickly. The night before the wedding she gave him a piece of ocean glass she’d been saving for her future one and only. It was written all over them all night long. That connection that kept shouting, “There you are! . . . I’ve waited so long for you.” Actually, DMB said it best during their last dance . . . “Eyes closed, we’re gonna spin through the stars/ Our arms wide as the sky/ We’re gonna ride the blue all the way to the end of the world.” Best part? They are at the beginning of their world. The best place to be, IMO.
