June 19, 2011, our wedding date, also marks the 45th wedding anniversary of my parents and happens to be Father's Day as well. Well, actually, my parents' anniversary is the day prior, the 18th, but it's close enough for the waterworks to flow as we celebrate both events.
But let me tell you.
When it comes time for the father-daughter dance, knowing it's Father's Day will make my eyes more wet than dry. And I have the perfect song.
I emailed my dad to tell him my idea, but before telling him my thoughts I made him guess:
(I know it cuts off part of the image, but if I shrink it down, you can't read it!)
I felt like it was a stretch and a challenge for him to come up with the answer.
Then he replied (Sorry, answers covered up to leave some things unknown for our guests!) :
What I'll tell you is this: he correctly guessed the movie, song, AND artist!
I knew at that moment it was our song. My daddy knew exactly the right answer.
And I can't wait to share that dance with him, on Father's Day, for our father-daughter dance.
What song makes you think of your dad?
