Colby and Latika met in 2015 thanks to a dating site. They really hit it off from the start. She wanted to go fishing, but because the local bate shops were closed and it was raining, she told Colby to dig for worms in his backyard with her. Neither of them caught any fish that day, but they caught something even greater!
Together they have a 3.5 year old named Hunter, a rescued Shepherd mix named Scout, a Puggle named Pluto, a cat named Cat, three ferrets (Lila, Olive, Sweet Pea) and a rat named Remy. They believe that animals are family too and are raising Hunter to have a love and an overall kindness towards all creatures.
They enjoy spending quiet nights indoors, or out by the fire when its warm. Hunter loves exploring the backyard and helping pick fruit from their various trees and bushes.
A typical Sunday is spent at Pop Pop's, playing with cousins and watching football (Go Bills). They have continued many family traditions such as visiting the cemetery and Botanical Gardens every Easter, and visiting family in Ohio for the Fourth of July.
