08 - My Only Sunshine - Pete Seeger

Jesse chose this has the song he would dance to his mother with at the reception. He remembers his mother singing this song to him a lot growing up; when he told his mother that, she was a little emotional about it, because she had no idea he would remember - he was so young! They led a lovely dance to it. You can here the version they played here.

And, also, I'd just like to remark here, that I now have two more people I can call "Mom" and "Dad" and I love that fact, and them. Jesse's mother Sandi is truly generous and loving, and I'm so happy that we are now family. Everyone always asks about the "in laws" and there's that negative societal myth of the newly entwined bride and mother-in-law. Well, part of the reason it's so great to be married to Jesse is that now Sandi is like a mom, and his father Dan is like a dad. I couldn't be happier!


  1. i'm glad you got awesome in laws! i did too, and i am SO THANKFUL for it! :)

  2. I love my future in-laws too :)
