Music Monday: Just Say Yes

| Inspiration, Music, Wedding Ideas

What better wedding song than one that talks about saying YES?

You’re right – not many. Today’s song is Just Say Yes by Snow Patrol and it’s perfect for your wedding playlist.

Some adorable lyrics for you:
It’s so simple and you know it is, you know it is
We can’t be to and fro like this all our lives
You’re the only way to me the path is clear
What do I have to say to you, for God’s sake, dear

Cute, right? Love it.

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: 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!

Music Monday: Free

| Music, Wedding Ideas

Hello again Monday!

Hope you had a lovely weekend – mine was lazy and perfect, which was must needed! Justin and I watched a movie together for the first time in weeks!

Today’s song I hold close to my heart : Free by Zac Brown Band.

So much about this song embodies me and Justin’s relationship – we’ve been together for 8 years and don’t have any babies yet, so we feel like we really are free. As much as we want little ones, we love being able to just get in the car and drive, spend money on stupid things and stay up late laying under the stars (ha.. which we’ve only done once as much as I love it).

The song came out right at the time of our wedding and I literally felt like we were going to have no money in our bank account when we got home from our honeymoon, and I really though all we needed was love.

I know that I will cherish this time of our lives, and I think this song is a perfect anthem for this chapter.

My favorite part:

We’ll drive until the city lights
Dissolve into a country sky
Just me and you

Lay underneath the harvest moon
Do all the things that lovers do
Just me and you

They also have a version where they sing part of ‘Into the Mystic’ in the middle, and that is amazing.

What song defines your relationship? I’d love to hear about it in the comments 🙂

Music Monday: When It Don’t Come Easy

| Music

Happy Monday!

I hope you got to spend Mother’s Day with your lovely families yesterday! Moms are great, aren’t they?

Today I’m sharing a great song with you – When It Don’t Come Easy by Patty Griffin.

I’m in love with this song – my sister introduced it to me, and you can find me belting it out at the top of my lungs when I hear it.

My favorite part:
But if you break down
I’ll drive out and find you
If you forget my love
I’ll try to remind you
And stay by you when it don’t come easy

Listen to it here:

Have a lovely day!

Music Monday: Ours

| Music, Wedding Ideas

I’m not gonna lie to you – I like Taylor Swift. She’s fun + she’s real + she’s adorable.

Plus my sister drives me by her apartment whenever I visit her in Nashville, so I feel like I have some sort of inside scoop with her.

Today’s song is one of Taylor’s newer ones – Ours.

My favorite line is the chorus – and I like it mainly because the things people say can bring you down, but really as long as you’ve got love, nothing else matters.

So don’t you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
And life makes love look hard
The stakes are high, the water’s rough
But this love is ours

Here’s the video, it’s pretty cute.

Happy Monday!

Music Monday: Maybe I’m Amazed

| Life, Music

Today’ s Music Monday may make you laugh, it may bring back memories of watching every episode of the OC on Thursday nights way back when.

The song is Maybe I’m Amazed (The Jem version) and it was played on the last episode of Season 1 of the OC at Caleb and Julie’s wedding.

Justin and I got out all of our OC boxed sets last year and rewatched them all, and I have to say it was a fun little blast from the past. So fun that I’ve been watching season one episodes again at any chance I can get. Seriously my most current guilty pleasure.

My favorite line from this song:

Maybe i’m amazed at the way you pulled me out of time,

You hung me on the line.

Maybe i’m amazed at the way i really need you.

Here’s a clip from the OC episode:

 Haha, did this bring back memories for you?

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: 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!
