Amy & Colin: Lovin' Life

For a little glimpse into the lives of Amy and Colin, look no further than this first photo! They are two of the most youthful, fun-loving, laid-back, go-with-the-flow-no-matter-what, people that I know.


Their story began in a little town out in Seymour, Indiana. They were both working at a summer youth camp run by Spring Hill (which coincidentally, I also worked at one summer when I was in college!) Over the course of the summer, they began to spend more and more time together, all the while denying that there was anything going on, both to their friends and apparently to themselves!

As I listened to their story I couldn't help but laugh because I saw so much of myself in it. I was close friends with Airika for over 5 years before I admitted to anyone that I "might" like her. This despite the fact that I had been faithfully hand writing letters back and forth with her for 3 years by that point!

Anyway, at some point, they also came to their senses and embraced what had been staring them in the face all this time, and here they are...






Amy and Colin, Airika and I are absolutely thrilled for you guys, and we can't wait to see what is in store for you!
