The radio was already tuned to a local pop station yesterday when I turned on the car to take Levi to school. As I backed out of the driveway, I caught the final two verses of “Chasing Cars” and smiled. The Snow Patrol love ballad was the song JB and I chose for the first dance at our wedding.
I didn’t always have such a blissful reaction to hearing “Chasing Cars” on the radio. When JB deployed for three months right after we got married, the song that he and I loved, the one that reminded me of him, made me weep every time it played in the car. The lyrics would make me miss him so terribly that I’d have to change the station.
What did you pick for your first dance song at your wedding? Did you have an easy or hard time choosing one?
