Something to make you smile (again) the Joyous JK Wedding Dance

the good news: THEY'RE STILL DANCING!

I dare you to watch this and not tear up - just a tiny bit.  it's the greatest wedding video ever!

I'm working on an aux drive that has everything and the moon on it, and this was stuffed in a corner.  and the minute I saw it I played it and guess what? - it made me cry (again)

From their site: 

We can’t believe it’s been six years since we danced down the aisle. Thank you for all of your kind emails and messages – it has been wonderful to hear from so many of you.

Our wedding video has raised $50,000 for the Sheila Wellstone Foundation, which works to end domestic violence in our communities. We’ve been blown away by the response. Thank you!

A lot has happened for us in the past five years. We bought a new home in St. Paul, MN this year, where we love living close to our family and friends. We both finished graduate school. Kevin earned his juris doctor and now owns his own law firm in the Twin Cities where he specializes in immigration law. Jill earned her doctorate degree in psychology and works as an assistant professor of criminal justice.

We have two fun-loving boys...a 4-year-old and a 1-year-old. They keep us singing, dancing and laughing every day.

Because of the work that we do in the legal and criminal justice system, and in light of the recent crisis at the border, we have chosen to collect donations for Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota. The Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota is a non-profit organization that provides opportunities to low income immigrants and refugees by providing legal representation, education, and advocacy.

If you feel compelled to pass some positive energy forward, please click on the link below to make a donation.

Never stop dancing.

With so much love,

Jill and Kevin

I really like touchy, feely videos like that.

This one isn't dancing (or even much singing), but it does hit my heart hard.  (and show that some people are juck fucking nice...  even gingers!  LOL)
