Music has been super important to mine and Joey's relationship and marriage. I wouldn't go so far as to say that music is the cement or glue of our relationship, but I will say that it's definitely the icing that covers our relationship and takes us from a boring cake, to a beautifully decorated masterpiece. Okay, perhaps I've been watching too many episodes of Cake Boss... But all that aside, hearing "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol, immediately takes me back to when we were dating. Hearing "Open Arms" by Journey takes me back to riding around in Enid, OK, because we were hoping to eat at the Taco Bell there (but when we got there it had already closed for the night) and we held hands for the first time. Hearing "I'm In" by Radney Foster (or Keith Urban) takes me back to sitting on the ground watching and listening to Joey play the guitar while I sang back up for him.
There are just some songs that are such a big part of our story that I can't help but think about a certain chapter of our life when I hear them.
Here are some of my favorite love songs: cheesy, romantic, the works. ;)
Yes, I'm definitely a Taylor Swift fan. But what I really love about this song is the lines "life makes love look hard/ the stakes are high, the water's rough/but this love is ours." It's so true.
Another bit of country flavor. It's a long video. You could watch it all, or you could just skip to the 4:50 mark and listen to the song. Either way is good.
Perfect for summer lovin'.
