Terrific Twosome: Ben and Danny Johns

Welcome to Tuesday's Terrific Twosome! Each week we'll spend some time getting to know one of our favorite couples. Sometimes we'll meet a couple from a book, other days, we'll have an even more special treat when one our favorite real life couples shows up and shares.

Since this is the first edition of T3 and it just so happens to be Valentine's Day, I knew we needed a very special couple to launch this page. I found just that with my good friends and real-life couple Danny and Ben Johns. The love they share shines like a beacon, reassuring everyone that Happily Ever After does exist. Don't believe me? Read on, and enjoy a select few of the pictures they've shared from this past year of the life they've built together.

For those who haven’t met you before…how about a quick introduction:

Ben and Danny Johns

LMAO, okay guys, thanks for that enlightening intro. How about telling us how the two of you met?

Danny: I had put some of my artwork in a local coffee shop .... and had stopped by to check to see if anything was selling.... and saw this handsome man behind the counter (the son of the owner). We exchanged a brief HELLO and eye contact.

Me: Was it love at first sight?

Ben and Danny: Basically, YES!

Me: Ben, what’s a day in the life of loving Danny like?

Ben: It is the most wonderful feeling I have ever experienced. To find the one that completes you like no other...words cannot begin to describe it. He spoils me rotten!
Me: Danny, same question back at you. What’s a day in the life of loving Ben like?

Danny: HARD WORK! Lol! We live on a small farm, so there are chores, and chores, and more chores. BUT.... I love every minute of it. I have found my BEST FRIEND as well as MY PARTNER and SOUL MATE all wrapped up in one person.

Me: What’s the best experience you’ve had as a couple? (*blushes* Okay, you can tell that kind of story if you want, but I meant how do people respond to you as a couple?)

Ben and Danny: As the new has worn off about US, we celebrate one year this March, people all the time ask where the other is. It is as if we are connected.... not just BEN or DANNY.... but DANNY & BEN. We both get a great sense of achievement when someone asks WHERE'S BEN? or HOW IS DANNY DOING?
It is like we have been accepted as a couple.

Me: What’s the worst experience?

Ben and Danny: So far... there have been none

Me: What’s your idea of a dream date?

Ben and Danny: Anything that we can do together, as a team, as partners, as husbands...... is a dream date.

Me: If you could give your husband anything, make his most secret and special wish come true…what would you do or what would it be?

Ben and Danny: I think we both agree when we say that the day we got married was that wish.
