Favourite Things

Happy Tuesday! I did not manage to get a favorite thing out of anyone for this week, so please bear with me as I share yet another of mine.

Sade's "By Your Side" was the song Chris and I chose as our first dance at our wedding reception almost 9 years ago. While we were getting dolled up for his brother's wedding this weekend, he put this song on, walked into the bedroom, told me he loved me and gave me a little kiss. Now, the song has always caused me to get a little teary-eyed, but as I was painting my eyes and listening to the lyrics for the umpteenth time, the words hit me with a whole new meaning. I thought of the baby we're expecting and how I could now not only apply the words to her father, but also to her. I had to put down my makeup brushes and step away from the mirror until the joyful tears had run their course.

Later that evening, during his brother's reception, Chris requested the DJ play this song for us. This time, he led two ladies onto the dance floor--one of whom has loved him for 10 years and another who has no idea just how crazy in love she will be with him. Oh, yes. There were tears.

Have a joyful day everyone! --Katie :D

Have a Favourite Thing you'd like to share with the team? Leave a comment and I'll get in touch or contact me via Etsy and next Tuesday's Favourite Thing could be yours. (It's either that, or I'll hunt you down and wrangle something out of you myself. Or not, apparently.)


  1. what a beautiful romantic story....
    and isn't it funny how music can do that to you - some songs have me in tears within moments when they come on the radio, wherever I am!
    Thanks Katie!
