Once in a while life mimics a fairy tale, and magic happens on the dance floor.  Does this couple look familiar?   Meet John & Charisse, who are simply made for each other, and who met when John asked Charisse to dance one evening.  They're getting married TOMORROW!

I've been blessed to know these two; they are and always have been two of the happiest people in the world.  I met them both separately when they took different dance classes with me.  They literally met on the dance floor at a dance I hosted in Warrenville.  What a blessing it's been to watch  them become more and more content the more time they spend together.  It's really been like watching a romantic movie!  They've both been married and divorced, and have grown children.  Now, as they have time to live the post-parenting stage of their lives, they will be sharing their lives together.  No matter our age or our background – sometimes the surprises in life are worth waiting for, as in their case.  I couldn't be happier for them!!

Their wedding rehearsal is tonight, so I won't be at the dance at the Geneva American Legion, as they've asked me to be part of their special day.  Never fear; Dancin' DJ Peg will be spinning tunes to keep you dancing and laughing all night long!  Be sure to tell me all I've missed, as I'm sure the stories will be hilarious, as usual!  I hear Peg bought some new hats…

See you at Sunday Nite Country in Warrenville, or at John & Charisse's wedding tomorrow!!  YES, we'll be dancing there!!!!
