let's dance the last dance tonight:

This week's mixtape may be a bit of a cheat, but I can't help it as I'm scrolling through pictures friends are tagging on Facebook and reminiscing about the countless hilarious moments from this past weekend's wedding. While doing these things, I feel like I should share with you some 'classic' wedding dance jams, that if I were to DJ your wedding, you just may hear. (Just kidding, I don't DJ weddings professionally - yet...)

I was fortunate enough to be a bridesmaid for one of my oldest and dearest friends this weekend. A gift I received from Meghan was personalized with "est. 1990," which to be honest seems crazy as it still feels like only yesterday we were waiting for the bus to school, playing kickball with all the neighbors in the cul-de-sac, or sledding down snowy hills on our school agendas when sleds were close enough to our reach -- all on the street that Meghan and I grew up on. One of our favorite song quotes to state to each other? "Lend me some sugar, I am your neighbor!" With only an older brother (though he's tops!), I was incredibly grateful for the five Duffy sisters living so close. Bern, Meg's older sister and MOH, made a statement that it was wonderful having sisters as built in friends, but these friends of mine felt like sisters, an extension of my own close-knit family.

08.05.13 - Mixtape Monday

We Are Family - Sister Sledge

Happily ever after.

For those curious as to why "1994" is listed, be sure to listen closely as there's a part where it sounds like the chant is saying "Joe, Joe, Joe Duffy." Though it's not actually Duffy, it's quite a scene to see both her father and grandfather, both aptly named Joe Duffy, doing the do-si-do on the dance floor to this tune!

Thanks to Stoilov Studio for the truly stunning photos - can't wait to see the rest!
