JAMIE & GINNY
San Francisco, CA
Jamie, 30, CEO of Hybrid Distillery
Ginny, 34, master distiller

When Jamie moved to San Francisco in 2007, she knew right away it was a good decision. Soon after her arrival, a new friend introduced her to one of his co-workers, a lovely young Ginny. They instantly formed a strong friendship, and after about six months, they started dating. "We´ve been together ever since," they tell us. "Jamie is hilarious. She doesn´t take herself too seriously," Ginny says. "She´s strong, beautiful and supports me creatively without being afraid to tell me her genuine feelings in a constructive way." Jamie says Ginny´s compassion is one of her favorite qualities. "The love, support and overall encouragement she offers anyone is admirable," she says. "Plus, Ginny makes the best coffee, every morning!" They´ve concluded that the secret to their relationship´s success is communication, respect and genuine compassion; plus, they love surprising each other to keep things exciting and romantic. But it´s not all butterflies and rainbows. Life has dealt these ladies their share of lemons: "Jamie doesn´t like the sound of chewing, so by far my biggest challenge has been learning to eat popcorn and apples quietly," Ginny laments. Fortunately, they´re working it out. The couple plans to be married in 2015 in Provence, France with "a small, intimate celebration and tons of excellent wine!"
