A few nights before Kris and I got married, he and his buddy Brandon (who I love to death) stayed up all night finishing a song that Brandon sang at our reception. It was a suprise for me and I loved it.

Here we are, almost two years later, the baby is sleeping in the other room and Kris and Brandon are playing the song in the living room right now trying to remember all the lyrics - we lost the paper :( I'm just soaking it in. Not sure why listening to it makes my throat hurt. Time goes by so fast. I found a pic the photographer took while Brandon was playing the song (above).

Here's what we remember so far...

"We're two and two, me and you, walking side by side...through the blue lights...feel like I'm five again, I'm alive again...can't wait to see what comes next, when i'm with you."

"You caught me by suprise with those big brown eyes and i know most of the time, i dont deserve you. Cuz you make me feel like i could be the man i always knew i could be, you belive in me and heaven knows that i need you"

"With liberty and love we make a single vow in God's good grace so hold on tight and we'll jump this face of foot in front of the last."

If we ever figure it all out we'll record it and maybe I'll put it on here. Life gets too busy. So many to-do's. So many stresses and worries. Always working towards something or saving up or making plans for this and that. ALWAYS overbooked. It's nice to just sit back and remember the important things. Just soak in all the feelings I had that day.

Love this. So much.

I recently pulled out a candle (caramel Apple) that Ryan and I had in our first appartment. Memories flooded back of being brand new newlyweds in our first home. We didn't have to worry about anything but enjoy each other. We had the time of our lives.

Last year Ryan was gone half the year and the next three years, well... law school has swallowed my husand.

Man, I am so grateful for that first year.

So when I pulled that candle out, among other things that have been in boxes I have just had to sit there and soak in the memories.

I loved this post and I love that song. Reveling in tender, once in a lifetime memories is one of my favorite pastimes. So grateful for good memories.

You and Kris are great, such a perfect match. I'm glad you've added Topher to the mix. He is a cutie.

Loved it! Wish someone would write a song about me! You look so pretty in your wedding dress.

I'm not sure why but just reading this makes me cry a bit. In a bittersweet sort of way...but it makes me happy. Thanks for sharing my dear. Miss you guys.

That is so sweet... I miss those newly wed days so much. Time flies. I can't believe I have 3 kids now. Enjoy your time with your one little sweet baby boy. I sometimes miss those days too when it was just Johnny, me and Curren. Life was so simple then.
