Nitty.Gritty. Wedding Song Game

I think the real winner in this whole thing is me! I got to "meet" some regulars here- thanks so much for your kind notes and for guessing too. We have a winner...Missy, you may email me your address and I'll try to get something in the mail before I take off for my weekend.
The song Chip and I danced to was "Fly Me to the Moon". I fell in love with it from the movie "Once Around" (Richard Dreyfuss and Holly Hunter), and on one of our dates Chip was whistling the tune as we walked along the hallway of a mall. I had just doodled the lyrics as I sat in one of my college classes earlier that day.
You know how when you're falling in love with someone, everything just seems so meaningful?! That song was it for me that day. Later on in life, it was one of the songs that Chip could sing to Teagan and she would calm down for him so well. As she grew up she learned all the words to it too. Funny how a simple song can hold such meaning.
Anyway, I'm glad to see that there are still a few of you out there reading Nitty.Gritty. Don't worry. I don't plan on shutting this blog down anytime soon- even if I stop getting comments altogether- I'm doing this first for me. You just happen to get in on the deal! If your comments link to a blog or webpage, I want you to know I check you out too. Sometimes I leave comments as well.
Thanks again to all my "new" blog fans. And congrats to Missy for getting the song right! Ciao for now.
