It is funny how simple things, things like a song on the radio, or a smell, will trigger your consciousness to flitter back to a different time, a different memory. Almost 3 years ago I met Jordan during the weirdest of circumstances. Those who do not believe that God exists and doesn't care about us, ask me sometime to tell you our story. What am I talking about, everyone that reads this knows the story already. Anyways... Nothing like hearing a Sublime song to make you recall being driven through a canyon in Provo, at a million miles an hour, by a crazy man. Hillary (my BFF) , Kristen (my lovely freshman roommate), Jordan (love of my life...I just didn't know it then), a boy named Lance (crazy man driving the vehicle), and myself were on our way to a giant bonfire up in Provo Canyon. As this was my first weekend away at BYU I thought for sure it would be my last and that the newspapers would be splashed with horrid pictures of a car mangled at the bottom of the canyon. As I was hyperventilating (okay not really... I was trying to act cool. This was after all my "first" weekend of college) I remember Jordan putting his arm around me and taking my hand. In that moment I knew I would be okay. I knew I would be safe. Funny huh. I had known Jordan for less than 5 days and I already knew that he would do anything to protect me. I guess it was that moment that I began to fall in love with him. 

So every time I hear Sublime I think of that night and how safe I feel in his arms. Romantic, I know. hahahaha However, I doubt Sublime would be an appropriate choice for a wedding song. :)
