This week coming, Running Bear and I will be celebrating 10 years together, and 8 years of marriage. 8 years and three precious small people later, and we are stronger than ever. Happy anniversary sweetheart!
HOW IT WORKS: Blog up to five songs between Saturday lunchtime and Sunday lunchtime in your local timezone. Any theme. Any reason. Doesn’t matter. You decide.
Or if you have done a music post during the week, that’s ok too, join the party as well!
Not a blogger? Just join in in the comments – link to the video, and even just list your five!
I will also be popping up some random clips over on the Facebook page if you are a Facebooky type and looking for some fun.
IT WOULD BE NICE (BUT NOT ESSENTIAL) IF:
You hopped around and commented on some other boogiers blogs.
You linked me in your post (or heck, even grabbed the button). Even to the front page is fine if you are wanting to schedule your post in advance.
The button, if you are button-type blogger:

At a bridal expo we went to a year or so before our wedding, there was a string quartet playing and I casually grabbed one of their flyers, and added it to the growing pile in my goodie bag. After arriving home, mum asked if I had their details, and when I said I did, she suggested that as our wedding gift from her, she would pay for the string quartet. As the sounds of Pachabel’s Canon gently echoed around the church, I watched as my bridesmaids lead the way, and as they stood aside, I took my dad’s arm, saw my soon-to-be-husband for the first time, and the music faded away, and I didn’t hear another bar of it until I reached the end, took his hand, and our vicar gave us an smile and told us to just be, and listen and relax. Possibly one of the nicest part of the ceremony. Just being.
For our first dance, we had some classic Elvis.
Talking of wedding gifts from my parents. We were looking at DJs, tossing up our options, and my dad suggested there’s nothing quite like a live band at a wedding, and if we had one, it would be our gift from him (seriously, how cool are my parents?). We had an AWESOME band, and you know what, I agree with dad. There’s nothing like it. Live bands rock weddings. If you are planning a wedding, seriously, splash the cash on live entertainment. Brilliant. This was the first song from the band, as requested by my husband.
And a little running joke between the two of us, from the early days in our relationship. Despite my protests, he assures me this is “our song”. Yep, high romance around here! Still, it brings a smile to my face everytime I hear it, and can’t help but think of him, so it kind of does it’s job, right?
And because I needed a fifth video. If I lay here, would you lie with me, and just forget the world?
