I Do

I've decided to take a slight diversion from my normal motivation mama drama to complete my assignment for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop. I couldn't resist this week's subject and I think you'll understand why.

Write about your wedding song. What was it and why did you choose it?

Choosing "our song" was simple. It had been an emotional night. One of those times that you just love your man so much for what he is and what he means to you. I can distinctly remember it, riding in the car with with my future husband and I Do by Boyz II Men started to play in his car.

Do I give all I am
To be now and forever your man
Do I take you to be
Without question the woman for me
Do I promise you
I Do
Do I promise you
I do, I do

I knew right then, the man sitting next to me would be my husband and this raw emotion completely absorbed my body. We weren't even engaged yet, but I made a mental note that this song would be our wedding song. The more the smooth, soulful jazzy lyrics flowed throughout his car, the more it solidified my love for this man. I started to cry uncontrollably as he held my hand and said nothing. We both knew.

As expected, we were engaged shortly after and when the time came to select our wedding play list, our first dance was simple.

Our wedding day was perfect.  Everything.  Our dance would be no different.

As the first note of our song began to play, all the butterflies and emotions I experienced the night I heard the song in his car came rushing back.

I'm telling the world
Here and now
That I'm gonna love you and love you
I take this vow yeeaah

He started out by being serious and then he did something I never expected!

He started to sing it to me! Oh my gosh! I think it was slightly planned, slightly impromptu.

The more the song went on and the more the people started to gather, it became a performance and yet I felt it was just he and I out on the dance floor. It was our moment. I loved every second of it!

As the song went on, the less inhibitions we felt and before I knew it, he was completely singing every word to me, like the song was meant and written solely for us.

This love has been worth waiting for
Cause love doesn't matter to me..hiieee
If it's not yours
As we become one
Through and through uuohhh
I dedicate all my life
To loving you.....ouuhh

This made me so incredibly happy!

So much about my wedding day brings back such great memories.  But this moment is one that I will forever cherish!

To have and to hold
While passions unfold
I promise a life you won't regret
For better or worse
No one can reverse the way that I've felt since we met You ain't seen nothing yet
