Music Monday: Breathe In, Breathe Out

| Inspiration, Music

Hello there!

Hope you had a gorgeous weekend!

Today’s song is another one by Mat Kearney – Breathe In, Breathe Out

I went to an acoustic show and heard him sing this song with just him and his guitar – absolutely amazing. His musical skills are perfection.

One of my favorite lines:

We push and pull, & I fall down sometimes,
I’m not letting go,  You hold the other line.

Watch the music video below.


Have an amazing day today!

Music Monday: The Only Exception

| Inspiration, Music

Hello there loves!

Today’s song is by Paramore, and it’s lovely,

My favorite line:

And I’ve always lived like this
Keeping it comfortable, 
distance, and up until now
I’d sworn to myself that I’m content
With loneliness
Because none of it 
was ever worth the risk, but…
You, are, the only exception

Music Monday: Hands Down

| Inspiration, Music

Today’s song is one of my favorites of all time.

Hands Down by Dashboard Confessional is such a feel good song – it’s hard not to love.

Here’s my favorite line:

Hands down this is the best day I can ever remember,
I’ll always remember the sound of the stereo,
the dim of the soft lights,
the scent of your hair that you twirled in your fingers
and the time on the clock when we realized it’s so late
and this walk that we shared together.

Perfection. The last part of the song reminds me of the first kiss I had with Justin, I think that’s why I love it so much 🙂

Have a lovely Monday!

Music Monday: As Lover’s Go

| Music, Wedding Ideas

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite love songs of ALL time.

When Justin and I first started dating, he burned me a copy of all of his Dashboard Confessional CD’s and A Mark, A Mission,  A Brand, A Scar was playing on repeat in my CD player. As Lovers Go was my absolute favorite song for about 2 years.

I really could relate to the lyrics – I honestly felt like I had been waiting for Justin all of my life (haha – a whole 18 years). But really, he was exactly the type of person I was looking for and was SO head over heels in love that I was sure I would lose it if we ever broke up.

My favorite line:

And I said “I’ve gotta be honest
I’ve been waiting for you all my life.”
For so long I thought I was asylum bound,
But just seeing you makes me think twice.
And being with you here makes me sane,
I fear I’ll go crazy if you leave my side.
You’ve got wits… you’ve got looks,
You’ve got passion but are you brave enough to leave with me tonight?

Listen to it below. It’s a great song and will always be one of my very favorites.


So sweet and true, right?

P.S.. What are you doing to celebrate Valentine’s Day tomorrow? I wanna hear so share it in the comments!

Music Monday: There is a Light that Never Goes Out

| Music, Wedding Ideas

I first heard today’s song sung by Anberlin and was instantly in love with it.

Then I found out that The Smiths sang it originally and I was even more in love with it, because lets be honest.. songs from the early 90’s are awesome.

My favorite line:

And if a double-decker bus crashes in to us
To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten ton truck kills the both of us
To die by your side- well the pleasure, the privilege is mine..

Here’s a link to the Anberlin version, which I think I like better.

Happy Monday!

Music Monday: Love Song

| Music, Wedding Ideas

Do you ever hear a song and are instantly transported back to a certain time in your life?

That’s what Love Song by 311 does for me – it takes me back to high school and a time when I didn’t know what love really was.

I remember driving around town with my windows down and the volume on my stereo turned up listening to this song. I loved it.

Now I’m not sure if I like Adele’s version or 311’s version better, but either way I like the song.

My favorite line:

However far away, I will always love you
However long I stay, I will always love you
Whatever words I say, I will always love you

Here’s the video.



Do you have a song that instantly takes you back to a place in time? What is it?

Music Monday: A Thousand Years

| Music, Wedding Ideas

Alright, for all of you Twilight fans out there I decided to feature a song from Breaking Dawn. I couldn’t help but fall in love with Edward and Bella’s wedding – the venue and the dress were stunning.

A Thousand Years by Christina Perri

My favorite line:

But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow
One step closer

And in the music video for this song, you catch glimpses of the wedding:

I mean come on, you can’t help but love the song, right?

Music Monday: Stolen

| Music, Wedding Ideas

I think my favorite band of all time (or pretty close anyway) is Dashboard Confessional. So it’s no surprise that I am featuring another song by them on Music Monday.

Stolen by Dashboard Confessional

This song is off the album Dusk and Summer, which is the perfect summertime soundtrack. And because it’s snowing and super windy and cold right now, I could use a small reminder of summer. And even though I a married woman, I could stare at Chris Carrabba all day.

Favorite Line:

I watch you spin around in your highest heels
You are the best one, of the best ones
We all look like we feel

Can’t you just picture that?


Love the song, love him. Don’t worry, Justin already knows 🙂

Music Monday: Better Together

| Inspiration, Music, Wedding Ideas

I have great love for this song… This was the song that was playing when Justin and I arrived at our reception.

Better Together by Jack Johnson

It’s how I truly feel about my man. I think we are great people on our own, but we really are better together.

Plus, Jack Johnson has a great voice, and the harmonica in this song is glorious.

Favorite lyrics:

Our dreams, and they are made out of real things
Like a, shoebox of photographs
With sepia-toned loving
Love is the answer,
At least for most of the questions in my heart
Like why are we here? And where do we go?
And how come it’s so hard?
It’s not always easy and
Sometimes life can be deceiving
I’ll tell you one thing, it’s always better when we’re together

Okay, that’s like, half the song but I really like the lyrics 🙂

It’s great, right?


Music Monday: Marry Me

| Music

First Monday of the year! I hope it’s wonderful for you.

We’re starting off the year with a song I never knew existed until about 6 months ago, and I don’t know how I missed it.

Marry Me by Train 

 Together can never be close enough for me
Feel like I am close enough to you
You wear white and I’ll wear out the words I love you
And you’re beautiful

Gorgeous lyrics, right? Listen to the acoustic version below.

Love it.

Have a beautiful day 🙂
