From The Past Friday


Another tribute to the good 'ole days. Dancing was a big part of our lives even before Tim and I were "Tim and Amy". I dug up some pictures from our dancing past. About a week after arriving at college we saw a poster advertisement for dance lessons through the University of Georgia's (UGA's) ballroom dance club, and we both signed up. It started as a class, then we made it into UGA's ballroom apprentice group, then eventually the ballroom performance group. We taught ballroom dancing classes together for extra money in college, and had a wonderful time waltzing for our first dance at our wedding. We found a dance partner and a partner for life...(insert "ahs" here). Enjoy the pictorial tribute to our dancing past! (you can click on the pictures to make them bigger)

Taken after the very first dance we ever attended in college.  We did the box step for every single dance, because that was all we knew how to do.

One of the many friday night dances on campus.  I include this one because Tim makes fun of my rockin' outfit.  It was a great outfit and I still stand by it.  :)

Please note Tim's bow tie.  It was his grandfather's, I believe...and is green felt and has sequins :D

UGA homecoming parade 2005.  Can I just tell you that it is very hard to march and dance at the same time...but we made it happen.

Tim danced with the UGA Ballroom Performance Group to "Moon River" at the Athens Classic Center.  "Breakfast at Tiffany's" was one of the movies playing at the film festival that weekend.

We were blessed to have some teachers come all the way from Brazil and teach us the Samba de Gafieira.  Our Brazilian teachers would refer to Tim as "Teem" and motion to their chins referring to his gotee.  Some of the people we danced with still do this when they see Tim.

The lift we worked endlessly on.  Tim got a couple elbows to the face.  I think he only dropped me once.

Because you can dance anywhere,  including the beach.

Hope you enjoyed these fun memories. Next time you see us dancing, please take pictures. We find it very difficult to dance and take good pictures of ourselves at the same time.
