my TRUE COMPANION--our first dance

Thanks to Stephanie I found to pimp out my page w/ music and found my wedding song (hear it? turn up your volume)
Here's the story behind this song....7 yrs. ago on a Wednesday night, while I was in nursing school and Edward was getting his master's--he drove 2hours and rang my doorbell...when I answered (very surprised to see him on a "school nite") he had this song playing (on a boom-box,of course then) and simply asked me to dance w/him...right there on the front porch w/a bunch of candles he had we did and then he got down on one knee and popped the question...and that was the beginning of the rest of my life...what a great story,huh? I can take myself right back to that moment and it always makes me smile. Now,this story gets better and better as my little girl is grinning sitting here on my lap making me play this song again and again as she listens to how her daddy made me his bride and she dreams of being a bride one day gotta have a love story.
p.s.and the best part is i still love him to death (even more than i did that day)

We had his wedding band engraved w/ "Grow old along w/me..." and
mine is engraved "...the best is yet to be" (which Beth sang at our wedding)
We always said that we would be at our best when we were 90yrs.old sitting on our front porch sipping sweet tea and looking back on all our lives had become together.
So this is the song we did our wedding first dance to pictured above.
Everyone's got a story,so what's your story,please share and spread the love. =0)
Here's to us,Edward,I love you!

I love that I know the whole story from the first date that Norbert and I almost ruined :-) to waiting patiently for the third little addition to our family. I have been blessed beyond belief to get FOUR incredible brother-in-laws: Wes, Markus (Norbert's brother), Scott and Edward. Love them for loving my sisters, and for being the men they were and are-- they're great husbands and fathers to my niece and nephews...Thanks guys!

Hi - I found your blog through Seersucker Stories and I just had to say how much I enjoyed this particular post. So sweet, I actually teared up a little just reading it. Thanks for sharing the story.
