Married Life

We have picked our First Dance Song!

After thinking and thinking about our first dance song. We have decided! I kept listening to songs with the one purpose of finding our song. All the songs that reminded us of us were a little too fast paced and maybe not as romantic. For example, we love “That Girl” by Justin Timberlake. It has meaning to our relationship because Flavio (fiance) would always sing that song to me. But we just didn’t see it as First Dance ‘material’. So we kept digging. Until I got tired and forgot about it.

We wanted a song that:

1. Was special to us.

2. We both loved and felt connected to.

3. Would represent us and our marriage.

And I think that is probably what any couple wants for the first dance song to be. It’s gotta be special.

Then one night we were both at home in our laptops. Flavio was playing what I call a lame video game but it’s what he loves and I was blogging, of course. I usually play Pandora in the background for inspiration. And as it was playing in the background, the song hit us. We found our First Dance song and agreed without even thinking about it twice. It spoke to us! it was the one! We said yes! hehe. I want to share this song with you guys because I think it is beautiful and it is everything I want our marriage to be. It makes me want to dance when I hear it, it makes my heart go “awwww” and every time I hear the lyrics I think they are the sweetest words that anyone will love to hear. We hope to be old and wrinkly and still feel what we feel now when we listen to this song. So without any further ado, I’m sharing what will soon be a special dance for us. Enjoy it <3

Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran
