thirty four & still so right ;)


my parents celebrated thirty-four years of love and marriage last weekend! happy anni  from one old married couple to next ;) they are the best these two. i love them. i do. lots and lots of sentimental amounts. nothing new here. and like every year on their anniversary, for the past thirty-four years, they dance to their wedding song, 'something so right', which i have talked about a time or two! [but my moms version is always better]

when it came to our own wedding, it was hard to decide on a song for our first dance. for one reason, i have always really wanted to continue this tradition of theirs and if you're going to listen to one special song on the best day of your life aaand for eternity and beyond, make it a good one, you know? no pressure. so hey, back up just a little! austin knows how much this tradition of theirs means to me. and my obsession with that song.  i have maybe cried a teeny bit while listening to it once or twice. ooor no comment. and what made it even more special was that on one november night austin asked this girl to dance to that very song, right before he got down on one knee and proposed :) so for a while we were thinking maybe we would make it our song too! but there were so many others we loved! so we sort of gave it a rest for a little. and after a trip of mine to nashville to watch colin and band [i mean dustin! dustin and band! ;)] open for keith urban, i had a moment! ha,  keith played  his song making memories of us -  just him, acoustically and in that moment! oh i fell in love with it. i remember how i felt soo vividly!  i went back home, played it for austin and hey, it became our song :) and really in hindsight, i think it was the win-win, best choice! we have our "own" song and can stilllll love on all the others [i'm looking at you something so right, you are the best thing, wonderful tonight, the list goes on] 

so while we were in the middle of wedding planning i got in touch with our band and asked if it would be possible for them to play something so right on our wedding day. just not for our first dance, but for my parents and as a surprise. they so kingly agreed to not only play their song, but learn it, since its not really on their usual playlist, i guess, come on! and so on that day, they played it! and it was beautiful. my parents danced, just them two  [with my stone brother and sister joining in a little bit after] and the surprise was a success. yay! go team. and can i just say, those two, they move soooo effortlessness. they are good! i guess thats what happens when you have thirty-four years of practice! love you parents of mine!! cheers to you.
