:LAYOUT: I hope you dance

Another in her favorite dress...

I have been wanting to use the lyrics of this song by Lee Ann Womack every since the song came out, but never had quite the right pictures…until these. They were perfect.

The polka dot background paper mimics the polka dots on my daughters dress (which happened to be green as well).

I decided to break up the lyrics into blocks so that I could have a little more flexibility in their placement and they wouldn’t feel like such a big block on the left side of the page.

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat, but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give fate a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance, I hope you dance
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances, but they're worth taking
Loving might be a mistake but it's worth making
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance (time is a wheel in constant motion always)
I hope you dance (rolling us along)
I hope you dance (tell me who wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
I hope you dance (where those years have gone)
