Tribute to Love (Songs)

Yep, you know me. I’m a sucker for for love songs.

Well, this year I’ve been in a little panic because I’ve barely had time to breathe, much less formulate a playlist–and even though I have kept a running list of songs throughout the year, nothing was really feeling right to me. I was about to skip this year. I was going to give up (despite the pull toward tradition). And then something happened.

Last night, while driving to a class, I turned on the radio–and a slew of songs old and new flooded my ears. I felt like I was given a gift, a tender mercy, an encouragement, a blessing. Making this playlist is important to me, and what is important to me is important to others–especially those who love me.

I sent a request to a friend for a cover of a song that I love (but it has words that I don’t like to voluntarily listen to), and she sent a text back that she would edit the song for me. It was in my inbox before my class was finished.

And, this morning, I had a little pocket of time to work on it…and, with the help of heaven and the love of sweet friends, I just might make it.

Here are a few songs that made the cut for the official 2014 Love Songs Playlist (in celebration of another year of marriage):


Justin Timberlake – “Not a Bad Thing”


Katy Perry – “Unconditionally”


Tristan Prettyman – “Unconditionally”


Betty Who – “Somebody Loves You”


Goo Goo Dolls – “Come to Me”

Sending love your way…always! ❤

I am thankful–with a week left until THANKSGIVING–for my dear husband. He’s still gorgeous, strong, thoughtful, tender, and loving after putting up with me for over a decade and a half…and that’s no small feat. HE IS AMAZING!!!!

GUESS WHAT?!?!?!?!?

Nope…
Not that either…
I don’t think so….

Okay, I’ll tell you. My anniversary is this week! I have spent an amazing amount of time with the same man–and I still LOVE him more than I can express. In fact, I love him more than I did many years ago when we promised each other and God that we would take care of one another and the children which have blessed our home since. We have tried to do that, I think. We are not perfect, by any means…but this week, I am sending out Happy Anniversary vibes to our marriage and CELEBRATING!!!!

Want to celebrate with us?

Well, as many of you may know, I started a tradition about three years ago to make my amazing husband a playlist of love songs each year. I have really enjoyed this process–finding songs that speak to my soul or paint just the right picture of how I feel. I started early this year…and I’m going to share some of the songs with you this week!

Enjoy! And share a little love this Happy Monday!
