People say that love can overcome all things and no two people are a better example of that than Jan and Andrea. Their love spans an ocean, a time difference, and many other obstacles. You see, Jan is from Germany and Andrea grew up here in Western New York. Despite the distance, these two have created a love story that they will someday tell their grandchildren, a story that can inspire us all to over come all obstacles for Love.
While in Germany, visiting over the Holidays, Jan and Andrea watched fireworks in the snow as they rang in the New Year. As she watched the fireworks going off all around them, she turned around to see the candles in a shape of a heart with their initials in the middle and a ring in Jan's hand. As she said yes, the fireworks continued but it seemed they were now celebrating something else, the beginning of something amazing.
We met up with Jan, Andrea and her son Zach at Olcott Beach and enjoyed wandering around the town, getting some ice cream (I think that was Zach's favorite part!) and playing at the beach.
I love this one below...so intimate.
Oh my gosh...isn't Zach so adorable!
Another favorite. Andrea, you a just beautiful!
