May I Have This Dance?

When Mike and I met almost 3 years ago, he told me that he'd already picked out the song he was going to dance to with his {potential} wife at his {someday} wedding. I was intrigued by this as most guys wouldn't ever think about something like this. What was his choice you might be asking?

By the Way They Dance : Jump Little Children.

Here are the lyrics as well {just in case you don't want to listen!}

And the one step and he's sliding

And the two steps and she's gliding
3 and the 1 and the 2
And then they float in the air

Side to side and she shows him
Back and forth cause she knows him
Round and round again
All that see them can't help but stare

Cause everyone knows they're in love
Everyone knows they're in love
Yes and everyone knows they're in love
By the way they dance

Cheek to cheek cause he needs her
Hand in hand as he leads her
Face to face cause they know
They'll never dance alone

Cause everyone knows they're in love
Everyone knows they're in love
Yes and everyone knows they're in love
By the way they dance

By the way she moves in circles
Ever so sweetly she wins him completly
By the way he holds her so gracefully
The hand that he lends her is able and tender
Never a step to chance
Cause everyone knows they're in love
By the way they dance

Cause everyone knows they're in love
Everyone knows they're in love
Yes and everyone knows they're in love
By the way they dance

So, Mike will be getting his wish. This is our first dance song. We actually tried to get the lead singer to come perform but he doesn't to that anymore for private events he said {what a bummer!}. The only other question, do we take dance lessons?!

Oh my goodness...I love how he he had picked out this song long before...and that you guys will actually be dancing to it!! I'd say no dance lessons...just wing it, something from the heart. But then, if ya get nervous or something, you may want some steps to fall back on:)

Good point! I'm a dancer so I'm good to go, more worried about him! He gets so nervous around others when dancing so maybe if we just practice at home that'd be okay!?

This is so cute! What a perfect song for the first dance and I love that he had it picked out already. I think dance lessons would be fun to do together and would help you feel more comfortable and prepared if nothing else!
