Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

Day 16: a song that makes you cry (or nearly)

This is by the band Great Big Sea, this band is one that husband turned me on to.

I was skeptical at first when he said a "Celtic rock band from Canada"

This song in particular I still can't really listen to.

Husband and I were in a long distance relationship for 6 years and needless to say it was a struggle. Not only were were trying to keep a relationship alive 3 states away from each other, but we were also growing up and experiencing different things.

The first time I saw husband again was a year after we had first laid eyes on each other in France. We had talked by telephone, email and instant messenger and for my birthday my mom Surprised me with a plane ticket to Alabama.

It was like a dream. It was the first time I had seen him in a year, and now I was on a plane, by myself headed to see him. I was scared, how much did he change? would he be the same person I was so smitten with? Would he still be smitten with me? Would I even recognize him?

Then I touched down in Alabama and the rest is history I guess you would say.

The last night we were together we had no idea when we would be seeing each other again. He was in school 4 hours away from Bham, I was working but not making much so we were looking at the unknown.

The last night was hard we moped around and we shed a few tears and then it was time to take me to the airport. He had "our" song geared up to play as we drove off and as an after thought he gave me a CD of Great Big Sea. I boarded the plane and this was the second song and as I listened to it I had to lay my head down and just bawl.

When I listen to this song all of the emotion comes back, how hard it was for all those years.

This is the cheesiest video, so just listen instead.

To make up for the cheese here is a video of my fave song of theirs.
