From Joy To Heartbreak, Jared And Adam Hit A Bump In The Road!
Every relationship hits a bump in the road or a temporary setback. It is not really the setback that matters, but rather if or how you bounce back from it that truly counts. HooplaHa's star couple of Joy Story, Adam & Jared tell all about the recent "bump in the road" that put the wedding of the year on hold!
Jadam was launched into stardom when Adam Keller proposed to Jared Marinelli in an epic flashmob fashion. After the proposal, Jared confessed "We hit this major bump in the road".
So how has the star couple overcome their bump in the road? One way is...couples therapy. "We think talking to someone once a week for an hour and just checking in with each other is the best thing we could have done" revealed Adam.
"The most important lesson that I learned about everything I went through is that it's okay to be vulnerable... and from there anything is possible" said Jared.
This video was produced by Tracy Chevrier, shot by Yura Makarov, and edited by Varya Rookwood. To see more of Adam and Jared and the Joy Story series, check out our YouTube channel and our Facebook page!
AJ Muss is just 23 years old, but his has been an eventful life so far. As an alpine snowboarder, AJ qualified for this year's Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, competing for Team USA— but that's not the only reason we love his story. We've already seen a number of new young American stars be made on the mountain during these Olympic Games, including fellow snowboarders and gold medalists Chloe Kim and Red Gerard. When AJ competes in the Men's Parallel Giant Slalom beginning later this week, we hope to see him shine as brightly as his teammates have so far.
You may be familiar with the challenges that many senior dogs face. They are often overlooked in shelters, as many people prefer to adopt puppies, and yet as they experience age-related changes like diminished senses and strength, they become more dependent on humans. We consider ourselves so fortunate to have friends who are dedicated to helping provide love to senior dogs in need. It was with some of those friends that we produced this music video for an original song called "Never Too Old to Love."
Lori and Shira Rich have made it their mission to spread kindness to the homeless and their pets. The desire to devote their time and resources to those less fortunate stemmed from Shira's concern in March 2012 for the homeless pets and the people that care for them. For many these animals are the only unconditional love and loyalty they receive. Their furry friends give them companionship while also helping them learn about responsibility.
