Hi Bees! I’m so excited! Here’s the stroy…
Several years ago my fiance and I were on a private rafting trip in the Grand Canyon (if you know anything about rafting, you know how amazing that is by itself). We weren’t dating at the time and didn’t start dating for months afterwards but we had been friends for years already. Anyway, another guy on the trip played Bright Eyes song First Day of My Life on his guitar. I cried! I loved it and have loved it ever since. Alan, the friend, is a VERY talented musician and I have always loved the way he sings and plays. I have heard him play that song several times since and I cry almost every time. It’s just the most romantic song ever!
A few weeks ago, Fiance and I decided that we would have that song as our first dance. We even practiced dancing to it in the kitchen to make sure it was appropriate! 🙂
Last night at a birthday party (my 30th!!!) in a very sweet and exciting moment, Alan asked if he could play a song at our wedding. I knew what song he meant and when I told him we were going to use that as our first dance song he was still ALL about it! SO, we’re going to have a live, acoustic version of the most romantic song ever for our first dance as a hitched couple!
Yay! Just had to share..thanks for listening. 😀
