Crazy Little Thing Called Love

Custom made print from LoveInLetters shop on Etsy

Just the other day it dawned on me that our one year wedding anniversary is just a few weeks away- time has really flown by! We have celebrated every month since we got married and I can't wait to celebrate our first year!! This has definitely been the best year of my life and I owe it all to my honey-bear.

Since the first year anniversary is traditionally a "paper" gift, I had a custom print made of the lyrics to our first dance and I'm going to frame it. Yes, we danced to Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen! We actually took 6 months of swing lessons at PBDA (they are seriously the BEST) and did a rockin swing dance! We really had so much fun just learning the dance and to this day we still practice it :) If you ever get a chance, you should take swing dancing lessons- it's some serious good old-fashion fun!

Here a little video of our first dance- since it was a swing dance, I had to change into a short dress. No complaints here though- I'll take any excuse for another wedding dress! (video by Jason Taylor Films)
