Music Challenge Day 23

Yay! Finally another song that needs a back story. The day was for a song that you wanted played at your wedding. Since I totally already got married and don't expect to do it again, I did a song that was played at my wedding. I could have done mine and Justin's wedding song, but I have such a sentimental attachment to my daddy/daughter dance song.

Having four brothers, me and my dad have the classic daddy's girl relationship. He spoiled me terribly growing up and still won't say "no" to me today. When I was born, he bought a record version of "To A Sleeping Beauty" and he hid it away in his dresser bureau until Justin asked him if he could ask me to marry him. Then, he had it transferred to a CD and gave it to me for my wedding.

Utah wedding receptions are totally different than elsewhere. Probably because there are so many weddings here. Seriously. I know when it's truly summer not because of the weather, because of the uptick in wedding invitations we receive. Anyway, we didn't get a chance to do the typical daddy-daughter dance on my wedding day. Luckily, we had our other reception. I slipped the CD to the DJ and when it was time for our dance and it came on, me and my dad just both burst out in tears.

I know it's not a typical song, but my dad is super quiet around our family. This song makes me think all about growing up and being the apple of my dad's eye. Now I have Addison and the song makes even more sense.

So there you go. The song I remember for my wedding isn't mine and Justin's song, but mine and my dad's.

I refuse to listen. Because it will make me cry. I don't need that right now, and I don't even HAVE a daughter!
