5 years ago today, I was getting ready to go to a coffee house. I had my book and my notebook. I had time before meeting this guy I met via a dating site. 

I remember having soup. 
And Jack swears I was wearing this blue sweater that doesn't exists. 

I remember me being my awkward self when it comes to first dates. 
I remember being taken to a freaking HORRIBLE diner. 
(when I found out that there was a better one also not too far from his house, I yelled at him.) 

I remember feeling very comfortable with him. 

A few days later,
I vividly remember knowing that this guy was special. 

My coworkers at Barnes & Noble kept asking me if I was still with him weeks later. 
Months later. 
After a year, people couldn't believe it. 

I couldn't believe it. 

I remember our first valentine's day. Jack neglected to make reservations to this place. "It's a Tuesday. It will be fine."
We ended up going to Lido's.
And I told him that I was gonna marry him. 
I knew that I was. 

So it wasn't love at first sight. 
It was love around 3 days in when we were on our way to the mall to find parts of Jack's halloween costume and we were listening to Lou Reed's "Perfect Day." 

We get married on saturday. 


  1. I see you and Jack sitting on a couch in the golden years of your lives retelling this story. just like this. Jack trying to interject his thoughts and opinions and you just talking over him. like the couples in the movie when Harry met Sally.

    1. LOL. Yes. but Amy, that happens already (:

  2. A belated congrats on the wedding, Kelly! How was it?!
