So, as some of you may already know, my little brother (one of 3) got married at the end of April. He and his wife have been together for 9 years (I think I did the math right…). They were/are high school sweethearts and it was amazing to see them get married after being together so long.
Of course, one of the moments that I loved most was cutting a rug on the dance floor with my little brother. We did it at my wedding and we did it at his. If the other two get married, I’m sure we’ll do it at theirs too.
But the best part of this round of dancing? That our parents were already on the dance floor and we agreed before joining them, that we were going to “show them how it’s really done.”
This is what followed (captured by my lovely husband who was smart and quick enough to photograph the moment for me):
My brothers are all a lot younger than me (by 7, 12, and 14 years) and when I was still living at home with them I taught them basic swing dancing steps. I used to slide them under my legs and swing them out, even teaching the elder how to do it to the younger. At my wedding, Sean (who I’m dancing with above) reminded me that I taught him his first dance floor moves, so it was particularly poignant to me to be showing our moves off together at his wedding!
