Our First Dance

Our first dance was "Every Day" by Rascal Flatts, a currently popular country song. Our reception was at a historic ballroom so we had a huge, beautiful dance floor to work with.

Beforehand, we had dance lessons with Gabe's younger sister who is a great dancer (thanks Becca!). It was a lot of fun even though when it came to the actual dance at the reception, I was tripping on my dress and so tired I forgot a few steps...oops. Gabe was great about going along with me and my 'chemo brain' ;). Improvising is always key!

Every Day by Rascal Flatts

You could've bowed out gracefully
But you didn't
You knew enough to know
To leave well enough alone
But you wouldn't
I drive myself crazy
Tryin' to stay out of my own way
The messes that I make
But my secrets are so safe
The only one who gets me
Yeah, you get me
It's amazing to me

How every day
Every day, every day
You save my life

I come around all broken down and
crowded out
And you're comfort
Sometimes the place I go
Is so deep and dark and desperate
I don't know, I don't know

Repeat Chorus

Sometimes I swear, I don't know if
I'm comin' or goin'
But you always say something
without even knowin'
That I'm hangin' on to your words
With all of my might and it's alright
Yeah, I'm alright for one more night-
every day
Every day, every day, every day
Every day, every day
You save me, you save me, oh, oh, oh
Every day
Every, every, every day-

Every day you save my life

Today, I am grateful for some down time before the next big adventure, for love, happiness, family, friends and God.
