Music Monday, Nora's Guy Next Door, The Writing Life

Music Monday – That’s When I Knew…

Nora's Guy Next Door Nothing the Same (2)I think this song by Alicia Keys is probably one of the truest love songs ever. Because love often doesn’t arrive with rainbows and choirs and fireworks. Attraction and lust can show up like that, but love? True love tends to sneak up on us, and it can arrive at the oddest times. A word. A touch. Riding in the car and glancing at each other. Just another dance that turns into THE dance. Passing in the hall and stopping for a sweet, lingering kiss that leads to the realization that your life just changed forever. This song captures that sweet surprise perfectly. Enjoy!

 

My Life, Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday – Goofballs in Love

John and Joanne DancingI just love this photo of Himself and I at a wedding (many) years ago. We’re goofballs, but we’re goofballs in love!💘💘💘

I’m positive we’re dancing to Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline here, because that’s how we always dance to it – with enthusiasm (it’s a Boston Red Sox thing…). 

“Hands…reaching out…touching me…touching you!”

Are there any songs guaranteed to get you on the dance floor with your sweetheart?
