The past 365 days have been sweet for Shannon Storms Beador, who has officially been dating John Janssen for a year now. And when June 21 rolled around, The Real Housewives of Orange County cast member was ready to celebrate.
In an Instagram post, the Real for Real Cuisine founder shared a photo of herself and John cuddled together at a Newport Beach restaurant, practically oozing heart-eyed emoji. "One year ago, the first date [at Fable & Spirit]," Shannon wrote. "One year later, celebrating at the same place."
In the clip above, Shannon reveals that she felt a fast connection with her beau. "I just felt an instant bond with him, and I am so comfortable with him," she says. "He is one of the kindest people that I've ever met. He is so thoughtful. We share the same faith, and he's a great dad. He has really strong family values."
And, he and Shannon both happen to like upscale Irish pubs:
The gushing is mutual, mind you. On Shannon's birthday back in March, her beau wrote her the sweetest letter. "I have never in my life spent so much concentrated time with anyone," he wrote. "I never tire of you, but rather thrive in your company. Our connection and chemistry are what people dream about. You are my person; the one I was meant to be with, the one that makes me feel whole."
