I wasn't nervous about marrying Jonathan. I never had cold feet nor any inkling of anxiety nor any of the typical jitters one might get before one of life's major events. On the day of our wedding, even with Tropical Storm Ernesto raging outside ruining our perfect wedding day weather forecast, all of my bridesmaids kept asking, "how are you so calm?".
The truth is, marrying Jonathan was the easiest and most natural decision I've ever made. I've never been surer about anything else in my life and on that day, our wedding day, I was filled with the greatest sense of peace and conviction and elation that I can't imagine being anything but calm that day.
Honestly though, I'm not usually a calm person. I'm a perfectionist, and what perfectionist is calm? I worry and nitpick and get stressed over the littlest things causing me to have minor breakdowns about stuff like mini muffin tins (right, love?). But you know what? Ever since that rainy, beautiful day three years ago, Jonathan has been my calm in the storm. He soothes my soul and brings me so much serenity and happiness, and above all else, unconditional love. He is my perfect partner in life and I can't imagine weathering any storm, or any day for that matter, without him.
Happy third anniversary, Jonathan. I love you more! XOXO.
One of my all-time favorite photos of our wedding day. Notice how Jon is shaking my Dad's hand, but beaming at me. So cute!

P.S. Another reason why we're perfect for each other? We decided to change our first dance song to what we originally wanted, "Can't Help Falling in Love" by UB40. We ended up switching it for various reasons before the wedding, but we've always regretted that decision. So I said, "Why not change it? It's our wedding and it's our song! Who cares if it's three years later?!" Jon added, "Plus they played it anyway and we danced to it!" My husband, he gets me. And so from this day forward (well, last Saturday actually), our song is UB40's "Can't Help Falling in Love". So perfect for us!
