This past weekend we attended a family wedding and as the bride and groom had their first dance together out on the dance floor, my mind raced back to when my husband and I first started dating and the songs that still make me think of him.
When we first started dating, we were in a long-distance relationship. We would see each other once a month for a long weekend and miss each other terribly in between visits.
Throughout that first year, he would create a "mixed tape" of music playlists that he would burn on various CDs for me and leave them for me to listen to while we were apart. She & Him (Volumes One and Two) were full CDs he burned for me and I would listen to them on repeat in the car.
It's funny how memories and songs slip through our minds on random occasions...It occurred to me, at the wedding, that I had not listened to these CDs, or their music, in quite some time. We even attended a She & Him live concert when they were in town a few years ago, but it's been a while since we played these albums.
Sounds like the perfect time for us to dust off these CDs and get them back in our regular rotation of background music.
