Kendra & Jamie
In the spring of 2009, Jamie and Kendra met through online social media networking. Though crushes formed and flirting started, they didn't confess their interest in each other until after they had the opportunity to meet in person during the summer of 2012 when Kendra made a short visit to Chicago. By the end of the summer, they decided to start a long-distance relationship without knowing how frequently they'd be able to visit each other. As luck would have it, they were able to see each other at least once a month until Kendra moved to Chicago in June of 2013 to live with Jamie.
Kendra grew up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and attended college in Marquette, Michigan and Minneapolis, Minnesota. She's a midwest girl at heart and was thrilled to discover that her soulmate is equally as enthusiastic about always living around the Great Lakes.
Jamie was born in Chicago and raised on the Northshore. She attended Franklin College and returned to her hometown to live close to her family and there she adopted her fantastic hounds Hobart and Harper.
