“Rock Chalk, Jayhawk, KU! Rock Chalk, Jayhawk, KU! Rock Chalk, Jayhawk, KU!”
I have no alma mater and since the University of Kansas was instrumental in bringing Michelle and Jordan together and since they live/breath KU sports, I felt the need to pay homage. In order to not screw up a yell so sacred to them (and all KU fans) I did some research on it. I had no idea it originated in 1886 by E.H.S. Bailey (a chemistry professor) and that by 1887, with a few modifications, it became the official yell of the school. Talk about an amazing tradition. We can’t give credit to the University of Kansas alone for this romance, two other things were crucial for it to begin. Jordan’s cousin brought them together in the first place… and (this is my favorite part) MySpace is where they got to know each other (pre-Facebook domination)!!
Well, their wedding was a blast. I don’t know what else to say because that literally sums it up completely. From the first moment, I was referred to as “damn Gina” (from the show “Martin”) and Jason got to wear his Puma sneakers. Every time we’ve seen them, we like them more! The only downside to our having met and formed a relationship with them is that they live in Kansas. Maybe we’ll connect on MySpace. It’s the way of the future 🙂
I recently watched the box office bomb, The Adjustment Bureau. I thought I’d give it a chance… it was terrible. Except for the interesting way that a life could literally be mapped out perfectly. And that one little thing, such as a spilled cup of coffee, could lead a person to meet the woman of his dreams.
During the wedding ceremony, in the bright Colorado sun, we learned a little bit about Michelle. The pastor shared that she had nearly given up trying to find a good man. Then, at just the right time, (as noted above) she met Jordan. I’m reminded often of just how many perfect things have to happen for two people to find each other. The stars have to literally align in just the right way, at the right time, for the right two people to meet, fall in love, and marry.
