With Valentine’s Day upon us, I wanted to take a moment to thank God for sending me my best friend James, and blessing us with the most beautiful marriage. It is better than I ever imagined, and sweeter than I ever deserved.

This morning on my way to work, I was listening to Gus Lloyd on the Catholic Channel ask listeners about their song. People called in and said how many years they’ve been married, what their song is, and how it came to be their song. It was the sweetest show!

On our first Valentine’s Day together James made me a mix tape (CD). Songs included Diamond Rio’s “Unbelievable”, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, Brian McKnight’s “Back at One”,  and Westlife’s “On Angel’s Wings”, among others. Can you tell we were kids in the 90s?

He also included “Amazed” by Lonestar, and that was the one we danced to at our wedding. That is our song. But we also have a few more that are close to our hearts.

Taylor Swift’s “Our Song” is pretty much the story of our first year of dating. Slammin’ screen doors, sneakin’ out late, talkin’ real slow cause it’s late and your mamma don’t know… you get the idea. We were 20 and 22.

The song that always makes me feel super warm and fuzzy though is none other than Thompson Square’s “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not”. Cause yeah, he got down on one knee… and we planned it all out for the middle (beginning) of June.

So Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone, but most importantly to my handsome, country music loving, best friend and husband James.

Do you have a song that really speaks to you? What song just makes your heart melt?

  1. This makes me want to find the mix CD John gave me many Valentine’s Days ago. I’d have to say that our song is “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” by the Beach Boys, but it’s not very danceable, so our first dance was to “Return to Me.”

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you!

  2. Cute. Our song is “such greats heights” by iron and wine. Although we did not have dancing at our wedding reception! We had a bbq in my parents’ backyard and didn’t blast no electric slide and no Macarena lol. We played lynyrd skynyrd and smashing pumpkins and whatever else we wanted and it was awesome.

  3. Love this! And I love your songs! Also a big Gus Lloyd fan too :). We’ve never really picked our songs, though we also have some mix cds we made each other when we started dating that I love.
