On December 20, 2006, Jenn was flying back to London, Ontario for Christmas from Calgary where she had recently moved. After arriving at the airport, Jenn waited in line to check in with her friend and noticed “the good-looking guy” checking in ahead of her. Maybe it was fate, or maybe love was in the air, because when it was Jenn’s turn, the WestJet agent checking her in said "Oh wow, your bag matches the bag of the guy I just checked in! You know what? I'm going to sit you right next to him. You never know, maybe something will happen!"
As Jenn boarded, she sat down next to Chris, and it was a match made in the skies. The pair connected immediately; telling stories, getting to know one another, and exchanging contact information, however, like any good love story, Jenn and Chris were bound to hit some turbulence. About half an hour before their flight was set to land, while waiting in line to use the bathroom, Jenn began to feel lightheaded.
