Jon + Jessica

When I first joined Chi Omega, I was overwhelmed. There were so many nice ladies and so many friends that I was making and I couldn’t handle how many names there were to learn, customs to figure out and rules to follow. I gravitated to a young woman who was very similar to me in […]

Delightful. That’s the only word to describe Jessica and Cody. I can’t recall laughing so much during a session and just how enraptured they had me. Jessica and Cody love each other in ways that only God could have created, Cody looks at Jessica as if she lights up the sky and it’s easy to […]
