As someone who has a tendency to clutter her computer desktop with every random file she thought – at the time – she needed to keep ready at her fingertips, I took some time this weekend to clean off my virtual desktop. Hidden in that mosaic of files, I rediscovered this video of Matthew and I practicing our first dance.

We took one dance lesson – one and only one – to have our first dance choreographed and taught to us. By the end, our instructor took this video to help us remember the routine up until the wedding.

After finding that video, I remembered a couple of other “behind the scenes” videos from the months leading up to the wedding. This time last year, I was picking out my wedding dress with my parents and two of my bridesmaids in Chicago. I had already done some shopping on my own – and more online shopping than I care to admit – and I had narrowed it down to these two dresses.

Even though I kept asking for everyone’s opinion – and they all clearly had an opinion – they all kept quiet to let me make my own choice. So I did… after a night of watching these videos over and over, over margaritas. And, as it turns out, I picked everyone’s favorite – or so they say!
