Colorado natives, Jenn and Adam led parallel lives for years before falling in love. They went to rival high schools, knew many of the same people, and even met once at a college party. It wasn't until four years later, at a mutual friends' birthday party, when they felt an instant connection. That summer, they spent every free moment together before Adam returned to law school in Oregon. Concerned that a long-distance relationship wouldn’t work, they decided to let things cool. But after reconnecting over fall break, they knew it was meant to be.
