An American Story


Couple's love goes the distance

Alex and Maeve are rewriting history.

The couple's history seems perfectly fit for a World War II romance, but it's one of the countless new American stories that will one day define our modern era.

Alex and Maeve met as toddlers before a move and a change in schools separated them. It would be about 20 years before the two were reconnected when Alex returned to the couple's hometown of Owatonna, MN, after serving as a Marine overseas.

Like so many wartime love stories, the couple instantly connected, but was soon divided when Alex returned to his post thousands of miles away.

As a military contractor, Alex kept in contact with Maeve while he worked throughout Europe and his home station in Washinton, D.C. The two officially were a couple despite the distance between them.

Alex and Maeve's full story will be featured on Anthologie's website in the coming months. To learn more about having your own story told, contact us today.
