I Hope You Dance

I've been a little MIA from this blog, but still enjoy reading other blogs on a daily basis for inspiration, motivation and sometimes "just because".

I typically always find an interesting recipe, a great workout idea or the true gems are when some of the blogs I follow post more introspective topics that speak to my heart.

I plan to get back on the posting train, but as of right now I'm in the midst of getting really excited for my bachlorette weekend, which is starting in just a few hours! It's amazing that this weekend will be in celebration of my upcoming wedding to the most incredible man who helps me up when I feel weak, believes in me more than I believe in myself sometimes, and who genuinely cares for me and our relationship.

I was recently flipping through some of our photos together and noticed that a lot of them involved a common theme when we're at weddings - dancing!

Here are some of my favorite photos sprinkled in with the Lee Ann Womack's song "I Hope You Dance." (Warning: The below is little cheesy I know, but I'm feeling extra mushy lately about this man :)

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.


I hope you dance....I hope you dance.


I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin',
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.


I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance


I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance, 
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.


I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
