Random Acts of Shiny

Before I hop back up on my soapbox I'd like to share one of those positive ripples I was talking about earlier in this blog with you.

Is that not the BEST wedding entrance ever? Those are people who really understand taking joy in the moment.

it gets better....

Jill and Kevin met when Kevin’s childhood friend, Jeff, married Jill’s college friend, Ann, in 2005. They were both in the wedding party. Jill could not resist Kevin’s wit and charm. Kevin could not resist Jill’s intellect, nor her remarkable dance moves.

SO wedding's have a very special level of meaning for both of them...

The response to the video was so overwhelming they decided that they'd try to direct all of that outpoured energy into a positive direction

so they posted a website

The couple writes:

We have been through a lot in life, but have come through each experience stronger and more in love with each other. Our experience since we posted the video has been incredible. We would never have expected this response to our wedding entrance in a million years.

We hope to direct this positivity to a good cause. Due to the circumstances surrounding the song in our wedding video, we have chosen the Sheila Wellstone Institute

Sheila Wellstone was an advocate, organizer, and national champion in the effort to end domestic violence in our communities.

We are so grateful for all the love, kind words, and joy that have been shared with us from around the world. It has moved us deeply and filled our hearts.

If you would like to contact us, email

Never stop dancing.

With so much love,

Jill and Kevin

.The "circumstances" refer to the domestic abuse allegations directed toward Chris Brown, who sang the song in the video.

So Kudos to J&K for sharing their joy.....and then taking it a step further

Keep dancing indeed.
