I loved that song, So High, since the first day I heard it. For my 28th birthday, my husband put together a slide show of our relationship and that song was the soundtrack. There is something about song that reminds me of our love. So when we had to decide on a song for our first dance, there was no question of what OUR song would be. There no need to consider a rambunctious booty shaking, arm waving, feet stomping tune or some other ballad. Nothing else would do.
So as we danced. I didn't see my friends and family sitting at the tables looking at us or standing taking pictures. I didn't see the videographer or photographers. I didn't see my daddy beaming or his mom crying (saw that later in the video). I saw him. I saw him smiling. And I was So High.

This post also contains the Word of the Week. Word Up, Yo is a word meme put together by Natalie, Kristen and Liz. This week's Word of the Week is Rambunctious - turbulently active and noisy.
Baby, since the day you came into my life, you made me realize that we were born to fly
