This Is It!

May 8, 2013 - Liz Skoczylas
When Nick first met my parents, I thought he completely bombed.

We had gone to the movies, and, since he was the first man I was spending any significant time with since my disastrous breakup, my parents wanted to meet him. So, we agreed to stop by for what I perceived to be one of the most awkward encounters since I had moved back to Jamestown five months earlier.

However, my parents absolutely loved Nick. They saw something in him that I maybe hadn't seen quite yet. And, the fact that this was the first date they really liked in three years helped me to finally let my guard down with him.

Here it is, more than two years later, and I will be marrying the person who knows me best in just three days.

My articles are written. The work I needed to complete this week is filed away. My desk is free of the million pieces of paper that usually litter it. After I write this, I will change my voice mail. And that's it.

I am finally nervous. I can't believe that the day of our wedding is just three away. Nick is picking up his tux later this afternoon. What seems like a million beauty and relaxation treatments are scheduled for me between now and Saturday. My four far-away bridesmaids will all be getting into town tomorrow. This is really it.

And I can't wait.
