I spent a lot of time sitting on my butt this weekend and little time sleeping – so you will have to bear with me as I am more than likely going to be cranky all week. BUT there was a few silver linings to the lack of sleep and excess bus traveling clouds:
- I got to visit NYC, pretend I could navigate the subway, AND see my sister direct an off-broadway show (Private Policy – it was amazing)
- I got to visit Live It Out Photography, her husband, and her cute little flat in Brooklyn. We also met a super awesome Aussie at a bar on 4th Ave and talked about music into the wee hours of the night.
- Frank Turner released his newest album this past week, Tape Deck Heart. The 10 hours I spent on Bolt bus this weekend allowed me to listen to this insanely awesome album on repeat. It’s incredible. Seriously. Buy it now.
Thanks to #3, we have today’s Wedding Music That Doesn’t Suck song suggestion courtesy of Frank’s “The Way I Tend to Be”.
Sometimes when I hear certain songs, my mind is INSTANTLY taken to a wedding dance floor – the bride’s dress is swooshing across the floor as the groom dips her. I mentally watch this scene like a recording of a movie video, the couple mouthing the lyrics to each other:
…and you taught me and here’s what I learned:
That love is about the changes you make and not just three small words.
Yeah, I know how crazy that sounds – but I literally cannot help myself. I hear these certain songs and I just think they would be perfect for a modern wedding – especially today’s song that I think would make an awesome first dance song. Here is a snippet of the song (as the whole thing is not yet on Grooveshark):
What do you think? Think it could work for a first dance song? Or maybe you just think I am mentally ill for imagining fake weddings in my mind when I hear music.
No worries, that’s cool too.
Check back this afternoon for a beautiful engagement session feature!
