A Beautiful Tradition
Today marks exactly seven days until the father daughter dance, and I can’t tell you how excited I am…
I’m sure you have heard that Champion Dance School is hosting this event; that itself is reason enough to be excited for! As the director of CDS I absolutely can’t wait to see our students, the girls of Champion Church, and even those coming from the city Â dancing all night long and enjoying a beautiful evening with their daddies in an event that Champion Dance School has put on itself. This feels to me like a mini Glorified!
But the real reason I am most excited? I can’t wait to dance with my own daddy.
Father Daughter dances have been a tradition with my dad and I since my Daisy Girl Scout days and those are honestly some of my favorite memories. I can clearly remember when my dad would take me and my sister Eden to the Christmas dance ever year. We wold get dressed up in our cuteÂ dresses and he would take us to a fancy dinner before the dance. I’ll never forget the time we were seated eating our dinner at the restaurant and a lovely older couple came up to us and told my dad how lucky he was to be on a date with two beautiful girls,Â and then how he told them that heÂ was headed to the ball with his princesses. From that moment forward I have always loved going to any father daughter dance, and its no different that Champion’s last father daughter dance! You bet I was there!
This will be the second father daughter dance Champion Church will have held and IÂ hope with all my heart thatÂ it will be as amazing as the last one, because at that dance I made some of the most beautiful memories with my father.
At the last dance there was an activity for both fathers and daughters to do before dinner. The fathers wroteÂ a message in a box to their daughters and the daughters made a cupcake for their daddies and themselves to enjoy as a dessert before dinner. My sister and I enjoyed decking our cupcakes out in sprinkles and icing and sharing our cupcake designs with all the other daughters. Oh how much fun we had! And at the other station the daddies wrote heartfelt letters to their princesses. When my dad gave our letter boxes to my sister and I, he specifically told us to not open it until our wedding days.
It has beenÂ 20 days since my wedding day now; 20 days sinceÂ reading through my tears the beautiful letter my daddy wroteÂ me years ago. I can’t describe in words how beautiful that moment was with my father. And now as a married woman I still feel like I am 5 years old waiting for my dad to take me to the dance again! I know that this year’s dance will be that muchÂ more special to my dad and I. Just the other days he joked withÂ my husband that now he has to ask him for permission to take me to the dance! Haha!
Trust me, I already have my dress picked out and I’m counting down the days! I hope that you will attend and I pray that you will be able to create a precious memory with your dad or your daughter (Just like a did!) on our special candy themed night of sweet moments. See you there!
