Our story begins in late January, 2009. When you know, you just know. My 17 year old daughter is to thank for mine and James being able to even meet! She is a member of a website called myyearbook.com. She told me about it one day when she on online playing some games, and I asked her about it. It's a website that you can post your photos and other members of the site can "buy" them with fake money you win by playing the games on the website. I was looking through some of the photos on day and I 'bought' James' photo. I thought he was cute, so 'why not'. I sent him a message telling him I had bought his photo, and that I liked it. He sent me a message saying, 'thanks'. Soon after that, on Feb. 10th, I totalled out my car in an accident on the interstate coming home. He had went to North Carolina with his brother in law so he was unaware of the fact. But, I sent him a message anyway. When he returned, he sent me a message asking if me and the kids were okay. Thank God we were! We began sending more messages, and soon he asked me out! Of course, I said 'yes'. So we went on our date. He was the perfect gentleman. We both were divorced. Both of us had had really bad marriages, and was looking to just have some fun with a good friend. He arrived at my house 30 minutes early. I was not ready. My daughter and sister came running into my bedroom asking me what I was planning on wearing. I told them "jeans and a shirt, why?" They told me he had a suit on! I freaked out! I had to think fast and change my outfit! When I came out, he was sitting on my sofa, talking to my sisters and my son. He had roses, and a stuffed teddy bear with him. I asked if he was ready and when he stood up and handed me the roses and teddy bear, I looked into his eyes. I thought, "oh my God, he has blue eyes." I loooove blue eyes. He looked so handsome! I knew then I had found the person God was getting me ready for. We went to eat at an really nice resturant, and the movies. He brought me home, kissed me good-night and left. I was on cloud nine! The next day, he asked if I wanted to go out again that evening. I said YES! So we went out again. He brought me home and we ended up talking all night long. About a month or so later, he told me he loved me...and 6 weeks later, he asked me to marry him! And, of course, I said YES! James is wonderful, sweet, and I couldn't have picked him out if I had tried!
