I've decided that my blog needed a little something new. So, I'm going to do something I like to call "Top Six Tuesday." How does it work? So glad you asked!
Every Tuesday, I will pick a theme, and then pick six things that I like or that fit me and list them! Descriptions aren't necessary, but sometimes I think it gives y'all a little bit more insight on why that item or idea fits me! Ok, so here it goes! My first Top Six Tuesday.
This Tuesday's theme:
The Top Six Songs that Describe Me
1. Here For a Good Time by George Strait
Need I say more?
2. Wide Open by Jason Aldean
When I first heard this song, I was reminded of when I worked at Denny's, how I'd always be struggling to stay up on my own two feet because I wasn't making enough money, but I didn't care, because I didn't need anything but my faith in God, love, and happiness. I left Denny's because I had bigger plans for myself, and wanted to succeed in a better way. I couldn't have put this period of my life in better words, or lyrics for that matter. Better that it came from my favorite male country artist too =).
3. That's Important to Me by Joey+Rory
I absolutley love Joey+Rory. I first heard them about two years ago and fell in love with the song "Cheater, Cheater" (another good song for those who've been with a cheating partner) and decided to explore all of their music. I have to say, they're amazing. When I came across this song, I felt like they were singing the words inside my heart (ok, so minus the husband, being a wife, and being a good mother part....for now). That's why I love this song so much.
4. New Strings by Miranda Lambert
There really are no words to describe why I love this song. I wonder what language I could describe it in...Just listen to the lyrics and you'll pretty much hear my early adulthood life story.
5. Virginia Bluebell by Miranda Lambert
So minus the fact that most of my family is from Virginia (part of why I like this song), this song is what kept me going through the dark times in high school, and keeps me going now. Whenever I feel left out by "friends" and not good enough for anything, I listen to this song, and I smile. I know I'm better than that.
6. Bless the Broken Road by Rascal Flatts
Ok, so it's a little cliche, but I couldn't find a better song to describe the way I feel with Matt, and what his love means to me. It's time to leave the past where it belongs, and move forward with my life. I don't regret the road I've traveled, because it brought me here to you.
