We met in July 2012 while on a trip to S. Africa.  I would say it was love at first sight, well maybe for him, but I didn't take notice of him until we had been in S. Africa for about 4 days. That 4th day is when our journey began.  While heading to our third location, the Kapama River Lodge, we stopped at a convenient store.  He was standing with a bottle of water in his hand, when I went up behind him and snatched the water out of his hand (I had to make the first move...he was moving too slow lol). That snatch opened the door for us to get to know each other better.  We went on a couple of Safaris, sat in the back of the jeep and just talked.  One day while the rest of our group went out for another safari, Jimmie and I stayed at the lodge and talked for hours.  That's when I knew I would spend the rest of my life with him...that and when he asked me if I could see myself being a "First Lady" lol!
