a noteworthy song

i dont know if other people are as passionate about music as i am. but i do know that most people can appreciate a well written song. my husband is one that immediately notices how well written the music of a song is... im the opposite, i notice the lyric. the poetry. some songs i just thing "wow, that was so clever and brilliant and how did anyone ever figure out how to put their thoughts so eloquently." i just wanted to jot this down really quick bc i am sitting here going through my iTunes and came across Sister Hazel's "Champagne High." It makes me cry everytime I hear it. Please have a listen for yourself.

CHAMPAGNE HIGH by SISTER HAZEL

here are the lyrics... but it's not as good just to read them .. you have to hear the song... it's (obviously) about a guy at his ex-girlfriend's wedding..

I wasn't looking for a lifetime with you
And I never thought it would hurt just to hear
"I do" and "I do"
And I do a number on myself
And all that I thought to be
And you'll be the one
That just left me undone
By my own, hesitation

[Pre-chorus]
and for the million hours that we were
well I'll smile and remember it all
then I'll turn and go
while your story's completed mine is a long way from done.

[Chorus]
Well I'm on a champagne high
Where will I be when I stop wondering why
On a champagne high
I'd toast to the future but that'd be a lie
On a champagne high, high

Spring turned to summer
But then winter turned to mean
The distance seemed right
At the time it was best - to leave
And to leave behind
What I once thought was fine And so real - to me
And while I'm still gone
On the quest for my song
I'm at your - celebration

Your wagons been hitched to a star
Well now he'll be your thing that's new
Yeah what little I have you can borrow
'Cause I'm old and I'm blue...

Well I'm on a champagne high (so high)
Where will I be when I stop wondering why
On a champagne high (so high)
Toast to the future but that'd be a lie
On a champagne high
Where will I be when I stop wondering why
On a champagne high... high...
So high so high you left me undone
so high, so high you left me undone....

the beach and trip to nanny's

sorry for the hiatus. we've been so busy!! we had the best time at the beach! it was so relaxing and fun hanging out with friends. i missed the fireworks though, and i was really sad about that. first year ever in my life that i havent seen fireworks on the 4th. oh well, i got over it when we got to eat at the Divine Fish House in Murrell's Inlet and I had the best she crab soup of my life! yum! here we are outside of the restaurant..













anyways. we got back from the beach and both had a lot to do at work. then i went to Katie's Wedding and it was so beautiful up at the Glassy Chapel. Last week, I worked a good bit then Thursday night my mom and I left for my nanny's which is in Summerville, GA. She has a huge farm and we picked Blackberries, Blueberries, Watermelon, Grapes, Apples, Squash, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Okra, Green Beans, and Potatoes. Yummmm! It was so good to see my nanny. Here we are with some "grape earrings"















and here i am looking like a giant bc i was on a hill ... and we're "under the umbrella tree" (remember that show? i LOVED that show!!)















and HERE is the AMAZING meal we had Friday night! The fruits of our labor were WELL WORTH IT!!! Squash, tomato, potatoes, corn, green beans, and nanny's cornbread!















so, as you can see, it's been a fun summer so far!! i can't believe there are less than two weeks until my birthday! 24 seems much older than 23. We (ashley's bridesmaids) are hosting a shower for her on my actual birthday, the 31st, and I'm having fun planning everything from flowers to food ! After the shower, we're all going to go downtown and have a fun birthday dinner :) I'm excited! Just wanted to keep everyone posted, sorry I haven't blogged in a while.. I can't wait for football season and fall!!! Have a great week!!
