Most of all, I remember... I have always been told you know it is true love if you can let it go and it comes back to you, but I would never take such a risk--that's just not in me! So when Steven proposed to me on a beach, all alone under a tent where we spent the night, I, of course, said "Yes!" It was so romantic.
When our wedding day arrived, I will never forget the beauty of the day, the sunlight, the warmth of the summer wind. It was the most perfect. One of the most memorable things from our wedding day was when a huge spider crawled up my dress and Steven saw it in between the tulle. Jenn, Jim, and Steven were all trying to get it out of my dress! Also, our first dance stands out to me. We had so much fun working on it together, and after all this time I can still put the song on and Steven literally remembers every step to our first dance.
Married life is wonderful! Steven and I have always felt married since we were together in college, so it doesn't feel that much different. We are both faculty at the university we met at. It is so much fun to call him when I am done with my class and say, hey I'm walking by where we fell in love, want to meet me at the spot where we first kissed??!! I know our adventure is just beginning. I am really excited for the next chapter in our love story. One important lesson I have learned is how blessed/fortunate/lucky I am to have found a person that is my one and only true love in this life.
