In September of 2013 our oldest daughter got engaged. I have to tell you, the engagement was not “that” big of a deal for me. Why? Because I knew that an engagement did not mean a wedding. Well, not RIGHT THEN. I mean, I know it comes eventually. And that “eventually” seems to be coming quicker than I thought it would.
We have already put a deposit on the venue, have a photographer, videographer, and the dress. So, yes, I am beginning to feel the emotions. And this will just be our first one. We still have 3 more daughters and a son to make it through. I am going to be a mess at this first one, Y’all.
I have no doubt.
One of the most emotional parts of a wedding, for me, is the daddy-daughter dance. I am such a Daddy’s Girl, so it just gets me every time. My dad and I did not dance to a “traditional” song you would typically hear for a daddy-daughter dance. Nope. We had to be different. I picked a song that meant something to us and held the memories I most enjoyed. It was an old song from 1965. “Shotgun” by Jr Walker and The All-Stars. It may not make sense to most… but to me and my dad… it holds a special meaning. And really, that was all that mattered to me in that moment.
Now, with our daughter, Cheyenne, I have a feeling she is going to go more traditional. Therefore, as my 9 year old and I were listening to a few songs recently I began a list of possible songs (in no particular order). Mostly country because, well, that’s my style, Y’all.
