It's your love - Mamma Kat's writer's workshop

    One of the blogs that I follow and love to read does a weekly writer's workshop which I have been trying to do the last couple of weeks.I totally forgot that today was Thursday and did not have myself prepared, so I am going to try and write this while holding and feeding B since he has picked this day to have as one of his fuzzy days.  The prompt is to write about your wedding song and why you chose it.  Since tomorrow is our 5 year anniversary, I thought is was fitting.
     On July 23, 2005 I married a man  that was dearest to my heart.  He was a friend, a lover, a confidant, a provider and now a husband.  I love our wedding.  We put a lot of time into planning it and making sure that everything represented us as a couple as well as individuals. Every detail from the Naval Academy chapel, where we got married, to the cake to our wedding song was carefully picked and had a meaning. 

      Our wedding song was "It's Your Love" by Tim McGraw.  It was chosen because it was country music, which my husband loved and because of the lyrics.  It talks about how love can change you and make you better than you were.  I felt like this was in a way describing me.  I was not a girl that had many boyfriends, I was always the friend of the boys or one of the guys.  I was independent and did not need or want a boyfriend or even a boy to open the door for me.  But things seem to change when I met my now husband and as the song says "it's your love, It just does something to me".  In this case it just seem to change me and make me look at the world and things a little differently.  I have to say that having Rob walk into my life has made me a better person, so again to the lyric "better than I was, more than I am".  This wedding song was chosen to represent us as a couple as well as individuals and I have to say it still does.  We are still growing and changing as a couple as well as individuals and it is our love that is doing it!
I still think it is a great song!
