I'm jamming to my Jack Johnson station on Pandora right now.  I don't know how this has happened... but Jack's music used to always make me just want to lay on the beach.  NOW, it just makes me want to be with my Michael.  Laying on the beach would be nice, too!  Can I have both? Thanks.

Wait! Maybe I do know how this happened...

The moment I got to the door to walk out for my wedding, my bridesmaids were walking down the "aisle" (really more of a planked walkway on a deck on the beach, you'll see) Jack Johnson's "Angel" was playing.  And I just remember looking out the window.. people were everywhere!  The wind was blowing lightly and the tulle we had tied around the gazebo was flowing and the music was perfect!.  The girls looked so cute in their little brown dresses!!  As I stood there, listening and breathing in.. it hit me.  This is it! This is HAPPENING.  Now!  This is my wedding! I'm going to walk down there and around the corner and we will do this.  It was definitely a snap shot that is frozen in my head, hopefully forever.

Thank you, Jack Johnson, for being the soundtrack to so many wonderful snapshots.

His song, "Angel" was perfect for my bridesmaids.  These ladies are all "angels" (in their own way, HA!) in my life.  I was so blessed to have two best friends and my sister, and my new sister stand with me as I made the biggest promise of my life.

I wish you could hear the song playing now... Here's a link.

 Uswithbmaids Aren't these the most beautiful girls you've ever seen?  And they will make you LAUGH!!  Aahhhh.  I miss each of them so much right now.  Haven't seen anyone since the wedding :(  Boo.  I love you girls!!!

Lyrics to Jack's "Angel":

I've got an angel
She doesn't wear any wings
She wears a heart that can melt my own
She wears a smile that can make me wanna sing
She gives me presents
With her presence alone
She gives me everything I could wish for
She gives me kisses on the lips just for coming home

She could make angels
I've seen it with my own eyes
You gotta be careful when you've got good love
Cause the angels will just keep on multiplying

But you're so busy changing the world
Just one smile can change all of mine
We share the same soul
Oh oh oh oh oh ohhh
We Share the same soul
Oh oh oh oh oh ohhh
We Share the same soul
Oh oh oh oh oh ohhh
Oh oh oh oh oh ohhh
Umm umm umm uhhhhhhmm
