Love Story #1- Josh + April Wynn

This is the first of the Love Stories Series! I've been looking forward to sharing about this couple all month. :-)

{The Dating Story}

I'm so excited to tell this story. April has been one of my dearest friends since elementary school. I will probably interject my recollections of their story along the way, but it will mostly be April + Josh telling their own story. They are from South Carolina but will be moving to Illinois this fall to open their own Chick-Fil-A! I have been encouraged by April in the way that she loves + supports Josh so well. They have left friends + family to travel the country for the past 2 years, moving every 6-8 weeks to help open CFAs across America. It has been so fun to watch but the journey wasn't always easy, yet their love for the Lord + each other has made it an adventure they'll never forget. 

Let's start their story! 

1} How did you + Josh meet?

We met our during the first weekend of our freshman year at Wofford College in 2008. A mutual friend introduced us at the football game that weekend. Go Terriers! 

2} Tell us about your first date.

Our first date was actually at KFC (ironically we now work for Chick-fil-A). We had been friends for a few weeks and he asked me if I wanted to grab dinner after basketball practice.

I had no idea he intended it to be a date, so when he asked where I wanted to go, I chose quick and cheap... Oops! We ended up staying for a few hours and it turned out to be the best date of my life! 

How cute are these two?

3} What is your funniest memory together?

Honestly, Its so hard to think of our funniest moment together! He keeps me laughing and my clumsiness never fails to bring a smile to his face. 

4} What was your favorite date?

Wow this is hard! We have had so many amazing dates! Josh is the best planner I have ever met and he loves finding new things for us to do! One of my most favorites was our 1st year dating anniversary together. He told me to dress warm and be ready at 2pm. He picked me up and surprised me with tickets to the Biltmore Christmas candlelight tour in Asheville, NC. He had planned everything out and made such an effort to make the whole night perfect! 

{Okay, who wouldn't want to go on this date?? That sounds so perfect!}

April has her own blog + Instagram
She uses these platforms to encourage girls to see themselves the way God sees them + how they can use His Word in their every day life! I love seeing her impacting young girls' lives over social media.

Next week I'll share their engagement story! :-)
