Do you have a song? We do. "Then" by Brad Paisley. Kurt heard it first, and told me he had found our song. And I fell a little bit more in love.
Does your heart stop and stutter when your song comes on? Mine does. Literally.
Well, ok, maybe it just feels that way. It's like an electric current goes through me, and makes my hands shake a little. I start remembering our wedding day (we danced to this song), and my eyes get watery.
And when it gets to the part about how he can just see me with a baby on the way, and when my hair is turning gray, I can see it too! Not because I'm pregnant and graying. I'm not either of those things yet. But someday I will be, and Kurt will be there. And just thinking about it makes me excited.
This is such a mushy post.
But you see, today I was just sitting there at work, writing up a research project, with my headphone in my ear. And this song came on. I don't listen to it very often, because I don't want to get used to it. Or tired of it. I want it to stay special. So when it sneaks up on my like that, I don't stand a chance. I just melt into a gooey puddle on the floor.
This post has you gagging, doesn't it? Well, I'm just gonna kick that mushiness up a notch by embedding my wedding video. It's a collage of pictures and videos, made for us by our friend Brian. If you are interested in having something this rediculously romantic for yourself, his contact information is here.
I know what you are thinking. "Please tell me you whip this out and show it to everyone who visits your home."
.....How did you know?
It is one of my favorite ways to entertain guests, and get compliments at the same time. When I ask them what they think of it, they have to say something nice. Especially if I make them watch it before dinner. That way they are too hungry to duck out the back.
If I could go back and change something, I would submit more pictures of me as a grown up. I didn't see how many Kurt was submitting, and I look really boring in comparison. Sigh.
Kurt would probably be embarrassed if he knew I was posting this. So you guys have to promise not to tell him. Ok?
**UPDATED: Right after I posted this, I turned to Kurt and said "You are gonna be really mad when you see what I just posted on my blog."
I am so bad at keeping secrets.
