I’ll be the first to admit that I am not a dancer. I cannot follow a beat, I cannot carry a tune, and I have no rhythm.
In elementary school, in addition to playing every sport under the sun, my parents enrolled me in ballet lessons. I will never forget my ballet teacher… She made my cousin cry [#truth]. Surprisingly, my ballet career was short-lived but I did look pretty adorable with my chubby cheeks in a dog and a lobster tutu!
When Ryan and I started planning our wedding, we agreed that dance lessons were necessary so we wouldn’t look like two clowns with two left feet. We signed up for a wedding package at a local dance studio and before we knew it we were dipping and dropping and swirling and twirling for an hour every Saturday morning leading up to our big day.
Our first dance was immediately following our grand entrance and we danced the rumba to “Dancing in the Moonlight” by King Harvest! In the moment, we may have forgotten exactly which foot to move and which way to turn but it was fabulously fun and memorable [I twirled Ryan]!
I cannot believe that I’ve been a Mrs. for a month, we got married on September 3rd! And if you’re wondering how it feels to be married [I get this question often]… I LOVE IT! It doesn’t feel very different from it did when we were engaged since we have lived together for the past year, but it is an awesome feeling knowing that our relationship is now a forever commitment and it’s fun to say “my husband”
P.S. Want to know what song we used for our grand entrance? Let’s just say it was *totally* my kind of song… Oh yes!
Question: Have you ever taken dance lessons?
Question: If you’re married, what was your first dance song? If you’re not married, what song would you want to use for your first dance?
