Tim and Amy

Circling Back

Tim and Amy's Story

Tim: For me, it was "love at first sight" at The Country Rock in Athens, Georgia way back in 1994.

Amy: Who could blame you watching me dance to The Boot Scootin' Boogie?

Tim: We had a whirlwind romance full of country concerts, camping, white water rafting, and the birth of
The Circle Game.

A game in which one person makes a “circle” with their fingers closely resembling the “OK” hand gesture and holds it below their waist, convincing a second person to look at it. If the second person looks they receive a kiss.

Amy (circle game champion): I was in love but had a degree to finish and some growing up to do so we parted ways.

25 Years, 5 Kids, and 2 separate visits to the town of "Splitsville" later we finally "Circled Back" to each other.

Tim: In July of 2020, I found an old photo of us at a concert from back in 1995 (see the gallery) and memories of Amy came flooding back so I got curious.
Thank you Facebook!

Amy: I was surprised and tickled pink to hear from Tim. Cheered on by my girlfriends that this Facebook message could be the beginning of my "rom-com"
I jumped at the chance to reconnect with my college flame.

After chatting for a few months we made plans to see each other in California and, lo and behold, we still had the hots for each other.
(kids, if you are reading this, sorry-not-sorry!)

One month later, in October of 2020, we discovered my breast cancer had returned. Our fun, nightly conversations were suddenly sprinkled with unfun words like stage 4 metastatic breast cancer, MRI and chemotherapy. Pretty quickly, we learned the true meaning of loving each other through sickness and health and the importance of cherishing each day we have together.

While while we spend quite a few days in doctor's offices, infusion rooms, and waiting around for test results, at the heart of our relationship you'll find
fun, laughter, and love.

Tim and Amy: After 2 1/2 years of romantic adventures, lots of laughs, a. few tears, and bravely blending our collective 5 children together we are finally
circling back to each other for good.
