About "the best things"...

I've been meaning to write this post ever since I starting this blog, to explain why I named it what I did. I guess most people assume that I'm referencing "the best things in life are free", because, well, that's very true! But that's not where I got the idea.

Have you ever had a song stuck in your head, I'm sure you have. Well, I have a song that's sort of permantly stuck in my head, and it has been for years. Crazy, I know, but seriously I at least hum or sing this song once a day. So much that Elijah will even finish the lyric for me if he hears me singing it.

What song is it? Well, for that you're going to need a little background info. When I was growing up I really liked old movies, the singing, the dancing, the costumes, I loved it! My two favorites (because I think these were the only two that we owned) were "Royal Wedding" (Fred Astaire!) and "White Christmas" (Danny Kaye!) Anyway, my favorite song in these two movies is "The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing" from White Christmas. And to this day it remains one of my movie moments.

Second only to the scene in "The Empire Strikes Back" where Han Solo is about to be frozen in carbonite and Princess Leia says to him "I love you,: and he answers with, "I know". *sigh* gets me every time.

And yes, I'm the world's biggest dork...
