    So girls I am having a weepy night, wedding planning, and thinking how my dad won't be there, (it's not helping that I am watching a tear jerker "one true thing" about losing a parent to cancer), and then I find this thread, it kind of sent me over the edge. I wish I could dance with my dad, he loved, loved, loved to dance! When this song plays I will be dancing with him in my heart

    There You'll Be - Faith Hill

    When I think back
    On these times
    And the dreams
    We left behind
    I'll be glad 'cause
    I was blessed to get
    To have you in my life
    When I look back
    On these days
    I'll look and see your face
    You are there for me

    [CHORUS:]
    In my dreams
    I'll always see you soar
    Above the sky
    In my heart
    There always be a place
    For you for all my life
    I'll keep a part
    Of you with me
    And everywhere I am
    There you'll be

    Well you showed me
    How it feels
    To feel the sky
    Within my reach
    And I always
    Will remember all
    The strength you
    Gave to me
    Your love made me
    Make it through
    Oh, I owe so much to you
    You were right there for me

    [Repeat chorus]

    'Cause I always saw in you
    My light, my strength
    And I want to thank you
    Now for all the ways
    You were right there for me
    You were right there for me
    For always

    Forgive my sappiness, we all have those moments, don't we?

    Kelly~

      My dad and I are really close and I'm looking for something fun and upbeat. We're trying to stay away from the songs that make you cry!
      I'm not a fan of country.. but up for almost anything else!

      I'm not a fan of country either, but we danced to "My Little Girl" by Tim Mcgraw. After our wedding we heard it as the soundtrack to "Flicka" (Ha Ha), but it is a really beautiful song and everyone cried.

        Kelly ~ I know your dad will be there dancing with you, too! Wow, you totally just made me cry at work.

        The things we take advantage of......I want to give my dad a big hug.

            I think I may do Rascal Flatts - My Wish.
            It's sweet, but not so sappy!
            My dad and I are not that close, unfortunately. So, this works perfect for my situation.

              So I'm hoping Baja Cantina has music...
              I feel like there's always wandering mariachis and musicians in Mexico... I'll keep my fingers crossed that a group comes wandering your way!

                It's so great to hear from you! We've missed you. How's the new place?

                  Aww Kelly, I'm so sorry about your dad, he will be with you in spirit on your wedding day, watching over you.

                  I love this song, its a favorite of mine and now I'd almost like to consider this for dancing with my dad, but I know I'm going to ball my eyes out!!

                    Please do dance with your dad to this song! It is the perfect dad/daughter song. I would be happy to know that there is a father and daughter dancing on a beach, under the stars, with love in their hearts.

                      I asked my dad a few weeks ago to come up with a song for us to dance too. He called me this a.m. and told me he wants it to be, "I Loved Her First". So that's what we'll be dancing too!
