glorious day

walking to work today i just couldn't stop smiling. 
which isn't actually that unusual.
but today was so perfect. 
so beautiful!
blue skies and white wispy clouds.
bright sun shining and a cool breeze.
and birds singing.
i just couldn't help tuning my ipod to my favorite summer music.
music that reminds me of lying in the grass.
falling in love.
and laughing so hard it hurts.

and this song in particular.
it was the recessional song at our wedding. the only recorded music we used.
because it's our song {or one of them} and it's so perfect.

 carbon leaf- life less ordinary {partial lyrics}

Live a life less ordinary
Live a life extraordinary with me
Live a life less sedentary
Live a life evolutionary with me
Well I hate to be a bother,
But it's you and there's no other, I do believe
You can call me naive but...
I know me very well (at least as far as I can tell)
And I know what I need

The night you came into my life
Well it took the bones of me, took the bones of me
You blew away my storm and strife
And shook the bones of me, shook the bones of me
By the way, I do know why you stayed away...
I will keep tongue-tied next time

Live a life less ordinary
Live a life extraordinary with me.
If I could name you in this song
Would it make you smile and sing along?
This is the goal: to get into your soul
If I could make you dance for joy
Could that be the second-chance decoy?
The bird-in-hand I would need
To help you understand?


  1. I love those kinds of days. :) And that's a good song. Hope you enjoy your weekend in the same fashion!

  3. Really great song. There's nothing like that music that puts you in the mood for summer...laying in the grass, feeling the sun in your face, driving fast in the warm nights...
    And that photograph? I love all the colors in it. Beautiful.
