The internet has fallen in love with this Ohio couple —who’s head over ‘yams’ for each other


Sharing an elephant ear, walking hand in hand through the pig barn... The county fair is the perfect place to show off your budding romance.

The photo was taken at the Columbiana Street Fair in northeast Ohio last weekend.
