In my mind, you can’t have dance without music. They go together like peanut butter and jelly or macaroni & cheese with sugar! Of course I could dance to the music in my head but it’s just not the same!
I love to dance. I used to love going to clubs with my friends just to dance! My husband does not. To him even with music there is no reason to dance! At weddings he will slow dance but that’s it. No fast-dancing, line-dancing or club dancing for him!
I’ll never forget the most special dance I had with him. Believe it or not it wasn’t our wedding dance although that ranks up there. We had just started dating after being best friends for over six years. We were college students with really no money to do more than go to the movies.
One night as he was dropping me off he asked me to get out of the car. He popped open his trunk, put in a CD and played our song. We danced in the moonlight, on my parents driveway at 2am. It still is one of the sweetest, most amazing moments in our lives.
In case you want to hear…here is our song. Believe it or not he’s not a country music fan either yet this has always been our song…this guy amazes me!!
