it’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you

In case you don’t follow me on Twitter, this is the most adorable thing I’ve seen in a while.

The BBC has the better headline: Child elopers’ Africa plan foiled

But Deutsche Welle has better text:

The adventurous trio, fed up with the cold temperatures, planned to ring in the new year under the African sun. And that’s not all — they also intended to celebrate a wedding, police spokesman Holger Jureczko said.

Six-year-old Mika and seven-year-old Anna-Lena, it turns out, “are very much in love and decided to get married in Africa where it is warm,” he said. They took Anna-Lena’s five-year-old sister along with them to act as a witness.

If you haven’t already, go read it. Adorable. How often are we blessed with adorable news?

Remember being in love at that age? The love of my life, in second grade, was Yuri. He was smart, had curly brown hair, and a quick smile. Alas, I knew it would never be, since his mischievious eyes were brown. Everyone in my family had blue eyes – surely, that was the only option.
