- Wedding: October 2011
So I know alot of bees think long and hard about what song to dance with their dad to… I made it easy. I asked him to choose.
the short version is: I love my dad dearly, and always wanted to be a daddy’s girl since he and I are so alike, but he wasn’t always around or reliable. He and I are working on getting our relationship back to what it should have been my whole life.. now that his life is on track.
anyway so he called me today to talk about a few wedding details I asked him to be in charge of and told me he has picked out our father daughter dance song. (which is a big deal since this is “our moment” as my mom will be walking me down th aisle)
He chose “Daughters” by John Mayer…. when I found out I was a little bummed.. like it was too cliche. then I looked up the lyrics. I had always thought about it as if boyfriend was singing it to a dad… not that a dad was singing it to other dad’s and then second I looked at it differently I changed my mind. it is perfect.
I cried at my desk at work… tried not to let anyone see that… and now couldn’t be happier with his choice! I can’t wait to dance with my dad at my wedding!
