Music Monday: The Gambler

| Music, Wedding Ideas

I swear when I grow up I won’t just buy you a roseI will buy the flower shop, and you will never be lonely.

Fun. has been super popular lately, but while you might love their new album, I’m in love with lots of the songs on their first album, especially one called The Gambler.

Lead singer Nate Ruess wrote this song for his parents, and it’s a song about picture perfect love – a love I hope to have for the rest of my life.

Take a listen :

Music Monday: Passenger Seat

| Music, Wedding Ideas

With my feet on the dash, the world doesn’t matter…

Happy Monday loves!

I hope you had a great weekend – mine started with a quick trip to Des Moines, which is about 2.5 hours away. I truly cherish the road trips that Justin and I take, it’s our time to be silly, listen to the music we love and chat. I love being in the passenger seat next to him.

Today’s song is just that – Passenger Seat by Death Cab for Cutie. I can remember the first time I heard this song – my lovely friend Mandy had it on a mixed CD she made me (haha) and I fell in love.

It reminds me of driving down country roads at that perfect time of year when cool air gathers in the valleys of the hills and you get a little chill. I imagine floating my hand on the air outside the window and silently listening to our favorite songs. Such a great feeling 🙂



Music Monday: One True Love

| Music, Wedding Ideas

I am a voice, I am a voice without any sound.
I’m a treasure map that nobody found when I’m without you.


Such sweet lyrics from Sleeping at Last’s Dear True Love. Definitely one for the wedding playlist!

Sing like you think no one’s listening…

| Inspiration, Music, Wedding Ideas

3 years ago I danced to my favorite song with my husband on our wedding day, and a year ago it was my first Music Monday.

As cheesy as it sounds, some of my favorite memories of dating my hubby are the days we just laid in bed listening to music, taking naps and dreaming of spending the rest of our lives together. He even used to write me love notes with the lyrics to this song on them – one of those notes is what made me fall in love with him.

Here’s one of my favorite lines:

Happy Wednesday, my loves!

Music Monday: Mistakes We Knew We Were Making

| Inspiration, Life, Music

Hello dearies!

Do you know what week this is? It’s blogaversary week + I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of Oh, What Love. It marked a turning point in my life, and I can say that a year later my goals + dreams for this blog + my career are coming true.

It’s also my anniversary week – 3 beautiful years with my love. Stay tuned, Wednesday there will be a little giveaway 🙂

Today’s song comes from the same album of my very first Music Monday. It’s Mistakes We Knew We Were Making by Straylight Run and it is perfection.

Here are some of my favorite lines:

so we bottled and shelved all our regrets 
let them ferment and came back to our senses 
drove back home and slept a few days 
woke up and laughed at how stupid we used to be

so I just try 
fail and try and try again 
someday I swear I’m going to get it 
because I’m convinced that giving in 
is the worst thing there is

Ahh, chills. It’s one of my very favorites.

Listen to the song below.

Do you love it?

Just want to take a quick moment for all of your blog love over the past year, I appreciate you all SO much!

Music Monday: Wonderwall

| Inspiration, Music

Helloooo Monday!

This Monday is a little bit different than most Mondays because 1) I’m still on a mini weekend vaca to Cedar Point, and 2) I DON’T HAVE A JOB ANYMORE!

This is both super exciting and totally terrifying today, but I’m ready to dive right in and get some new brand planning done and I’m going to be working on a brand relaunch – a fresh new look and plan for Oh, What Love! I’m so excited to finally have some time to do this.

Now that that’s out of the way, lets get to the song!

Wonderwall by Oasis is just one of those songs that I somehow know all of the words to but I’ve got no clue how.. they’re embedded into that section of my brain where random song lyrics live.

After listening to it and really hearing the lyrics, I realized that it’s a really great song.

Here are my fave lyrics:

And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I would
Like to say to you
But I don’t know how

Because maybe
You’re gonna be the one that saves me
And after all
You’re my wonderwall

Watch the video below

Have a lovely Monday!

Music Monday: Marching Bands of Manhattan

| Inspiration, Music, Wedding Ideas

It’s weird how things work out – I had this entire week planned to be a circus/carnival/boardwalk theme for months without knowing I’d be working on a design project that is boardwalk themed and planning a trip to an amusement park/boardwalk this week too.

I’m not hating it though – I love the bright colors and fun designs you can do for a boardwalk or circus theme!

Today’s song has the same theme – it’s Marching Bands of Manhattan by Death Cab for Cutie, and it’s been one of my favorite songs for years. It’s a little melancholy at the end, but the whole first part of the song talks about what someone will do for love.

My favorite line:

If I could open my mouth
wide enough for a marching band to march out
they would make your name sing,
and bend through alleys and bounce off of the buildings

Take a listen to the song – I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do 🙂

Stay tuned for more carnival fun this week! Plus, I’m announcing a giveaway later today!

Music Monday: Better Man

| Inspiration, Music, Wedding Ideas

Happy Monday loves!

Are you ready for the 4th? I’m mainly looking forward to a mid-week day off of work and celebrating my little niece’s 5th birthday – what are your plans?

Today’s song is another one by James Morrison and it’s called Better Man.

I’ve said it before, and I’m gonna say it again – I love Mr. Morrison’s raspy voice!

My favorite line:

You are all that I need,
For you, I give my soul to keep
You see me, love me,
Just the way I am
For you, I am a better man
You are the reason for everything I do
I’d be lost, so lost without you.

Take a listen to the song:

Music Monday: The Luckiest

| Inspiration, Music, Wedding Ideas

Happy Monday loves!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend – I think I spent the entire time outside + I loved it!

Today’s song is one that I’ve mentioned before in a Theme Thursday blog post, but I think it deserves it’s very own feature.

It’s The Luckiest by Ben Folds and it may be the sweetest song ever written.

I feel like nothing about this song is glossed over, it’s not just written because it is the way love should be – it’s real and quirky and I love it.

My favorite line:

I don’t get many things right the first time
In fact, I am told that a lot
Now I know all the wrong turns, the stumbles and falls
Brought me here

And where was I before the day
That I first saw your lovely face?
Now I see it everyday
And I know

That I am
I am, I am, The luckiest..

You have to listen to the rest – the other 2 verses are adorable!

It’s so sweet, right?

I’ve got a BIG BIG announcement coming this week – maybe even tomorrow – so check back to find out what it is!
