That Song — 53 Comments

  1. God, this is so beautiful I was holding my breath reading it. I remember that moment when I saw him for the first time on my wedding day, and all the other faces blurred out and for a split second all I saw was his. I don’t remember everything about the day, but I will never forget that. You captured all those feelings so well, and I love your wedding hair!!

    • Oh, thank you! You’re right – the day blurs, but certain moments stand out in technicolor. Perhaps that’s why I can relieve it at the drop of a hat (or tune). And thank you! I loved everything about how I looked that day. 🙂

  2. Natalie that was so beautiful. What a gorgeous bride. I can still here the music as I type this and it brings up so much. Thanks for such a lovely post.

  3. This post was lovely. I love how music can instantly take us back to the time and place of a strong memory.

    But most of all, I love the gratefulness of this post. I love that you appreciate and enjoy what you have.

    • I do too! There are few songs that truly do that for me, but this is one of them.
      Yes, I do appreciate everything I have. Maybe not all the time, but from time to time I call up memories like that to remember all for which I have to be grateful.

  4. Oh, that kind of knocked the wind out of me and brought tears to my eyes. Today is one of my wedding anniversaries ( same husband, but we had our legal wedding in a courthouse months prior to going to Mexico for the ceremony. Today is the ceremony anniversary…anyway…) We always watch the video on this day, and I can’t wait. I know as soon as I hear it, tears will fill my eyes.

    And i’m so glad I’m not the only one who has trouble staying still in Shavasana… 🙂

    Beautiful post. Really.

    • Thank you so much! That’s how I felt – wind knocked out of me! Happy anniversary to you, and I hope you have more beautiful times of remembering!
      PS-I love Shavasana but I also hate it when I can’t get my brain to shut up. 😉

  5. What is it about Shavasana? I was almost in tears when the instructor told us to find a happy memory and I was suddenly reliving the moments each of my kids came into the world. Guess I know what brings me joy in this life…

  7. Natalie, you’ve related this inner snapshot in a beautiful way. I flowed right along on your stream of consciousness, not a hitch along the way. Lovely.
