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!

Music Monday: Marry You

| Inspiration, Music, Wedding Ideas

Happy Monday! The weekend went wayy to fast, right?

Oh – don’t forget to enter my giveaway. You have until Wednesday to enter! See more details here.

I’m not usually into super popular songs – they’re over played and I get burned out on them wayy to quickly, but when I heard Bruno Mars’ Marry You, I loved it.

Such a cute song!

It’s a beautiful night,
We’re looking for something dumb to do.
Hey baby,
I think I wanna marry you.

Cute, right?

Have a happy happy Monday!

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!

xo,

Mariah

Music Monday: Countdown

| Music

I’m back!

After 8 days in the mountains, we are finally home again + I’m diving into my first full week of working on my own! Time to dig down deep and get this business thing all figured out!

Today’s song is a little more upbeat than most of the songs I choose, and I think it’s a fun one.

It’s Countdown by BeyoncĂ©, because everyone needs a little BeyoncĂ© in their life, right?

Some fun lyrics:

Damn I think I love that boy
Do anything for that boy
Boy! 
Now I’ll never be the same
You and me until the end

And the video? You’ve gotta check it out – it’s pretty fun!

Pretty crazy, right?

Music Monday: Flowers in Your Hair

| Music, Wedding Ideas

Alright – time for you to be a bit jealous of me – I’m on vacation again!

This time we’re in Colorado, and at this moment we’re probably getting ready to go on a hike or do some shopping in Estes Park with some family. Then on Wednesday we’re headed to Denver for some work on Create + Connect Project, a Rockies game, a beer tour and lots more fun.

Colorado is my favorite place to travel, so I’m SO pumped that we’re here.

And speaking of Colorado, today’s Music Monday artists come from Denver – the Lumineers!

Today’s song is Flowers in Your Hair and I’m obsessed.

Great lyrics:

So now I think that I could
Love you back
And I hope it’s not too late cause you’re attractive
And the way you move
I won’t close my eyes
It takes a man to live
It takes a woman to make him compromise

Isn’t it perfect? I’m in love!

Happy Monday, and stay tuned for some more fun tomorrow!

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!

Music Monday: Island

| Inspiration, Music, Wedding Ideas

The Starting Line has been one of my favorite bands for a while now, and I fell in love with them even more after seeing them live on their last tour a few years ago.

Today’s song, Island, was one of my favorites off the last album they recorded together. I like it so much because it reminds me of summer and escaping away to some place tropical with my love.

My favorite line:

Let’s sail away, find our own country
We’ll build a house and beds out of palm trees
Let’s get away, Let’s push our lives aside

Hope you have a lovely Monday!

Music Monday: It’s You

| Music

Whew! Happy Memorial Day everyone!

It has been an amazing whirlwind of a weekend – I got to celebrate the holiday with the wedding of one of my very best friends. It was such a gorgeous day + I’ve had SO much fun the past few weeks helping her get all of the details in order. I am so happy for Lindsay + Eric – they’re perfect for each other.

Today’s Music Monday is a song by Michelle Branch: It’s You.

Such a simple and sweet song. My favorite line:

If tomorrow never comes 
I would want just one wish 
To kiss your quiet mouth 
Trace the steps with my fingertips

So lovely. Listen to the song below:

How are you celebrating this holiday weekend?

Music Monday: Ships in the Night

| Inspiration, Life, Music

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend – mine was full of garage sales, graduations + time in the sun. With grad season comes engagement season which is my favorite time of the year! Congrats to anyone who got engaged over the weekend 🙂

Today’s song has been one of my very favorite songs for a while now, especially since I got my husband to like Mat Kearney too (and dress like him.. I love it). The story behind the video for this song, Ships in the Night, is so fun – he travled to 165 different locations around the US and sang the songs hundreds of times to shoot this video. Another fun note – the woman in this video is his wife! She’s so darn adorable, they might be my fav celeb couple.

My favorite lines:
We’re just fumbling through the grey
Trying find a heart that’s not walking away

and

Feels like we’re learning this out on our own
Trying to find a way down the road we don’t know

I love this song because he doesn’t sugarcoat things – marriage is hard but when you find that heart that’s worth it, you can make it through anything.

Watch the video, you won’t be disappointed.

Sorry for such a long post, I can’t help but ramble on about my favorite artist. Mat Kearney never ceases to amaze with with songs that somehow fit every aspect of my life.

Have an extra lovely week this week!
