My husband and I don't have "a song."
There are many we love, like, "I Won't Give Up" by Jason Mraz. We both LOVE that song, but as our love song? It sounds a little like we are constantly struggling in our relationship! And we both LOVE "Awake" by Josh Groban (this is my favorite version! It's with Idina Menzel, so duh, it's amazing.), but it's kinda sad too! It's about a couple who has to be apart...it makes me think of couples where one spouse is in the military. So, that doesn't really fit us, though we love it.
And, I am crazy for the Beatles, but he's not a huge fan, so none of the sweet Beatles love songs will work. :(
We just can't agree on one. But, the lyrics to, "Till there was You" from the Music Man pretty perfectly describe my feelings for him, since I never had a serious relationship till I met him. (Oh geez...if you watch the video I linked, you might die when they start singing in each other's faces...haha! Gotta love musicals!)
I dealt with a lot of anxiety over dating in high school and college, but he was such a good friend, and I was finally in a good place to try having a relationship...and basically, the timing was meant to be, cause it was right when I met Patrick! I liked him SO much, he was worth facing the fear. And I, who made fun of everything sappy and romantic for years, was suddenly the sappiest of saps. (You can read our ridiculous love story here) So, at least from MY point of view, this is our song. :)
For a while, I've wanted a cool accent pillow for our bed, and I had a pillow I was tired of, so I decided to put some fun graphic letters on the back, which was just plain fabric. And, since it was for our bedroom, I thought something a little sweet and romantical would be nice! But it couldn't be all flowery and pink (cause I share this room with a manly man), so I figured the plain block letters would work nicely. I used a gold fabric pen, to echo the other gold accents in our room. I probably would choose a little darker of a color if I were to do it over again, cause it's a little more subtle than I wanted it to be, but hey! I still like it! :)
|I tried stencils, but I wanted to rip my hair out, so I freehanded it. And I used every ounce of juice in that marker!|
It's a sweet reminder of our love story every time I walk in to the room. Yay! (Don't tell Patrick that the Beatles covered this song...haha. :)
What do you think? Too subtle? Hmmmm.
Do you and your hub or boyfriend have a song? What is it? I'd love to hear. :) Any other songless couples out there?
