Mark Gibbs and Mari Fultz waited with anticipation while getting their portrait drawn Thursday night at the Indiana State Fair.

Gibbs and Fultz have been together for about a year and are currently long distance. Fultz is from Illinois, and Gibbs is from Indiana. Fultz currently stays in Indy, but Gibbs has moved to Texas.

“He is in town visiting,” said Fultz. “He lives in Texas, but I am moving there next month.” 

They had funnel cakes and walked around enjoying the scenes of the fair before going to the portrait booth. A friend had talked them into getting the drawing done. She and others stood watching while the artist worked his magic. The couple smiled and giggled at the reveal of their cartoon-drawn selves. 

They came to the fair for an evening out and left with an adorable portrait. There's not many better ways to say goodbye to Hoosier roots than going to the Indiana State Fair.
