Best Gift Ever !
Has anyone heard the song "I Loved Her First" by Heartland? It is a father singing to his daughter on her wedding day and it came out the week of my wedding last year so I didn't get to use it for the father/daughter dance. My father heard it at my cousins wedding a couple months ago and was able to buy a small book with the CD included at Barnes & Noble and the pages are father/daughter stories and the words to the song written out over several pages. My parents went through all their photo albums and put pictures of me growing up with my parents (and brother) all through the book from the second I was born and my father is holding me to my wedding where they both gave me away.
I am so not a crier, but boy that got me last night when he gave it to me.

How sweet! I just listened to it on Amazon and it's beautiful!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

You are so lucky to have such wonderful and thoughtful parents.

Just waiting for the song to buffer, but think I'm going to cry. That's an incredible gift - something to be handed down forever - I think I probably would have been crying hysterically ;-) Just before he died when I was 12, my dad said to me that the thing he regretted most about dying was that he wouldn't be able to walk me down the aisle. I'm getting married in 2009, and I'm sure he'll be with me. Give your parents lots of hugs from me :-)

Edit : Yep, can't stop crying ;-)
New blog!
