Scott and I have been together for 8 years and during this time Scott has made me an uncountable number of mixed CD’s of beautiful music.  It was a always such a nice surprise and something I very much looked forward to.  Sometimes the CD’s would arrive via mail, tucked under the windshield wiper on my car, in a card, or waiting for me on the kitchen table.  These CD’s have become snap shots of our journey as a couple and capture significant moments in our lives. I am grateful for the memories we share through music.  Even though I consider myself to be musically challenged (I couldn’t sing well to save my life!) and Scott to be musically gifted we have been able to share so much through songs.

Well, tonight we took a little trip down memory lane, recalling our lives at the time each song made its way on to one of my mixed CD’s.  We sang along like a couple of love struck nerds, laughed, and found some hidden gems that had been long forgotten.  I have compiled some of my favorites and hope you enjoy :)
