A Playlist for Falling in Love
I've been home sick with the flu, which means I've had buckets of time to fill with netflix, blogs and music. I've put together a playlist with my favourite songs for late fall nights. I love music for the emotional charge songs innately carry.
Many of these songs remind me so much of Isaac - our first date, our first kiss, the first time we decided we were actually going to give what we felt a chance. One of the things we did when we first started dating was send songs back and forth that we thought the other would appreciate.
When you've been together for a long time, especially when you live together, the newness and excitement you feel in those first months gives way to intimacy, trust and stability. Making this playlist has reminded me of those nights we would stay up texting, exchanging thoughts and songs, hopes and fears, until one of us could no longer keep our eyes open. It's a nice reminder of how much the little things matter.
