SPOILER ALERT: One of the most feel-good episodes on Netflix’s “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo“—where Japanese joy-inducing organizational expert Marie Kondo helps tidy people’s homes—features Long Beach couple Angela and Alishia. The newlyweds had just bought a condo in town and needed some assistance organizing their belongings without bickering (sound familiar?).

We learn during episode eight—”When Two (Messes) Become One”—that Angela, a veterinarian, and Alishia, a flight attendant, met five years ago on a flight Alishia was working from Vegas to Atlanta.

“Prior to Angela I was considered a nomad,” Alishia says.

“I feel like I literally grabbed her out of the sky and brought her down to earth,” Angela says.

I’m not crying, you’re crying.

Theirs seems to be the most heartwarming story, as the two end up more in love than when they started their de-cluttering journey, and Twitter seems to agree for various reasons.
