We picked a first dance song!
Mister O and I don’t really have a song, so it was tricky. Our contenders were:
Andrew Lipke, Stick By You (sorry, that’s the only video of it I could find…just listen)
And I, of course, was campaigning hard for:
Fo’ serious. It’s getting played during the reception at least.
So, none of these were really us. We tried to make each of them work, even dancing in our living room and seeing if we were feeling it. I was kind of resigned to just picking a pretty song and moving on.
And then, people, out of left field, comes Dave Matthews with this gorgeous song:
Instant tears. And I cry every time I hear it. Mr. Octo heard it once and agreed that it was perfect for us; we moved five states away from all our familes and friends and are making it work. When we have kids, we want to encourage them to really spread their wings and take a huge chance like we did. What did I tell you…perfect! What do ya’ll think? How did you pick your first dance song?
And yeah, I’m crying again.
