Friday Favorites: Valentine's Edition.

I'm going to share a little bit of love - in the only way I know sharing my favorite love songs, movies and quotes. That should get you in the mood 
for all things L-O-V-E, right?

1. More than Anyone - Gavin Degraw

I remember sitting in my room as a freshman in high school, listening to this song on repeat. It holds a very special place in my heart - and I don't think I'll ever get sick of it.

2. The Luckiest - Ben Folds Five

I am totally late in loving this song. I remember people talking about it when it first came out, and it's pretty much a staple wedding song - but it wasn't until the movie "About Time" came out that I really fell for it. It's just too sweet not to love.

3. Your Smiling Face - James Taylor

If I ever compile a list of favorite songs (which I'm sure I will at some point) and James Taylor isn't on the list - you'll know I've gone crazy!


And when I finally (after 24 years of living) got to see him last summer, and saw this song live, I pretty much can die a happy girl :)

4. True Companion - Mark Cohn

This song. I don't think I have words to describe this song, but certain people know this song and why I chose it. Love you guys.

5. Run - George Strait

No love song list is complete without the king of country! 
And this song is my absolute favorite.

6. A Drop in the Ocean - Ron Pope

"But I'm holding you closer than most, cause you are my heaven.."

Or favorite movies about love..but love stories sounds better :)

1. You've Got Mail

Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks are the quintessential romantic movie couple..and I don't think I'll ever not be in love with this movie!

2. Music and Lyrics

This is my feel good movie - and I'm 150% sure it did not get the credit it deserved!
 If I'm ever having a terrible day, like nothing is going right kind of day - this is what I turn on. Drew and Hugh will make you laugh, cry and smile throughout the whole thing! It really is just that good!

3. The First Time

I stumbled upon this movie after falling for Dylan O'Brien's character on "Teen Wolf" (yes. I admitted that publicly. It's a GOOD show!). And it's ever bit a cliche teen love story, but it's every bit as real and wonderful as falling in love for the first time is.

You're welcome in advance for this recommendation

4. Titanic

Yup. I said it. I love it. The end.

5. About Time

I was so incredibly surprised at how much I loved this movie - if you haven't seen it, please go rent/buy/secretly download it off the internet. It's quirky, sad, sweet, and a good time. You'll laugh and you'll cry..which is always the makings of a quality movie!

"I could start fires with what I feel for you." - David Ramirez

And in the movie "Hook" - Julia Roberts (Tinkerbell) 
says it to Robin Williams (Peter Pan), I cry every time. 

"That's where I'll be waiting.."

"I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once." - John Green


"Be on guard. 
Stand firm in the faith. 
Be courageous. 
Be strong. 
Do everything in love." 
- 1st Corinthians 16:13-14

And so I hope on this Valentine's Day (and every day for that matter), that you do everything in love. That you always remember that you are loved and you were put on this world to be love.

And you definitely don't have to be in love or in a relationship for that to happen.

  1. I just found your blog- didn't know you had one. I had to comment on this post though because I have some issues.

    Love Songs:
    Umm...Have you heard Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran? It's basically the best song ever right now.
    Also, you probably need some CB love on there, not sure which one, but still it's just the principle.

    Love Stories:
    You didn't put mine and Caitlin's story on there, what's up with that?

    Anyways, there is my contribution, and I'm going to keep reading.
    Stay fresh berg-a-lish
