A Whiter Shade of Pale.


The evening that Daniel and I got engaged, 
we went to the Mile High Marina in McCall for some live music.
It was "Jimmy Buffet Night," and the musician went by "Wyatt Hurts."
Do I need to say much more?

After telling my dad about our engagement,
he took over the microphone for a minute and announced our big news to everyone.
"Wyatt" called Daniel and I to the dance floor and played a beautiful love song for us.
Or, at least we thought it was a love song.
After we finished our dance (in which my dad and I both cried),
he told us the real meaning of the song.
The song's name was "A Whiter Shade of Pale,"
and while it's a famous and romantic-sounding song,
it's actually a song about seasickness. 

What a way to kick off an engagement.

We danced the night away to live music and lots of DJ'd dances
like the Macarena, the Cupid Shuffle, and the Cha Cha Slide.
And yes, we were dressed like crazy Jimmy Buffet parrot heads the entire time.

Congrats on your engagement, I've always loved that song and i had no idea what it was about all this time. That's hilarious.

I'm doing this color run this Saturday in New Jersey! You should come out this way instead. Although you'd probably be doing a lot more walking than you're used to lol
