As I expected, I was blown away by the singing and dancing! I was immediately brought back to my younger years when Britney was, well, Britney and every song she released was like gold (or platinum, as it were). The renditions of her very best hits were fantastic.
The episode really got me thinking about the power of music. It can make you laugh heartily, cry tears of joy or sadness, bring back distant memories or move you one step forward into the future.
Which is why I am so pleased with how the music selection for our wedding went this past weekend. I am most excited for the very ending. I can’t share it right now, but it is going to be wonderful!
I am also thrilled that our music director was able to incorporate the instrumental version of Carrie Underwood’s Mama’s Song into the prelude of the ceremony. My mom has been listening to this song on repeat all summer long and the video just recently came out. I started bawling, of course.
Much more details to come, but let’s just say that music is a very powerful thing in my family.
Kelli and I met up with Jill (center) for breakfast at the ever-delicious Yolk last week. I have been obsessed with this place ever since the Healthy Living Summit, so it seemed the most logical choice.
After perusing the menu, I decided to go with an old breakfast favorite: the Mediterranean Omelette.
As usual, it did not disappoint. Chock full of tomatoes, spinach, kalamata olives and feta cheese, I had to slow myself down to savor every bite because it was just so tasty!
I also had some whole wheat toast with jam on the side.
It was wonderful to catch up with Kelli. She is technically my second cousin – growing up in a family where my dad was the oldest of 10 kids, you would be amazed that I was the first and only “daughter” among my dad’s brothers and sisters until I was 12. Considering we now have 20 cousins total, that wasn’t an easy feat. 😉 Kelli is my dad’s cousin’s daughter (how is that for a mouthful?) and we always stuck together at weddings, picnics and reunions. We also rode our first roller coaster together – the old Rickshaw at Camp Snoopy in the Mall of America!
It promises to be a crazy couple of weeks around here! I can’t wait until I can reveal all the details of the wedding. I’m just about bursting to show and tell all of you.
Can you recall a specific memory or emotion that you are reminded of through music?
