Pictures and songs float through my head- for every moment in life there’s a soundtrack that accompanies it, no matter whether it’s the grandest of days or the (seemingly) most insignificant of moments. Words and images have the power to heal and bring you back to the place you were in life. Whether it’s dancing in the family room with your BFFs to Sir-Mix-a-Lot, the moment you figured out the (too cute and smart for his own good) boy would only serve to mess with your head, the afternoon spent on the beach drinking mimosas with a friend that knows your heart or the sweet (and moderately embarrassing) moment of your first kiss… Name a memory and I can sing you a tune.

Clearly, I take my music selections seriously…   One could say that I’m a little obsessed with finding the perfect tune for the time. While editing Kate and Brendan’s wedding I had one particular tune stuck in my head: “Your love is like radiant diamonds, bursting inside us we cannot contain. Your love will surely come find us like blazing wildfires singing your name.

And so with much ado and a wee bit of dramatic flair, I am happy to bring you a hot new blog post, complete with the perfect tune. So feel free to crank up this song in the background and let your heart be moved.
