You're Sentimental, Cause So Am I

I’ve been reading wedding blogs since before Chris proposed so I’ve had an idea in my head that I would like to blog about my own wedding planning experiences. Even if I’m just blogging to myself I think it would be a nice way to commemorate this time. As I write this I am studying abroad in Greece and in the next year I will be completing my undergraduate degree, participating in undergraduate research, planning a wedding, finding a job, graduating, getting married, moving, and starting a job. It should be quite the year and I have high hopes so this is me attempting to chronicle what will be a quite a monumental year in my life.
And now for a short description of the name of the blog.
The night is young, the skies are clear
And if you want to go walkin’ dear
It’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s de-lovely
I understand the reason why
You’re sentimental, cause so am I
It’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s de-lovely
Pretty early on in our relationship I started to despair that Chris and I didn’t have a song. I would hear songs and ask him if they could be “ours” and he would be completely unimpressed both by the songs and the exercise. The closest we would come would be various R&B songs that we both liked and somehow always managed to be about cheating on or leaving your significant other. Never the type of thing you could even play at a wedding, much less have your first dance too.
For Christmas this year my Mom gave me a movie based on the life of Cole Porter, a composer who mostly wrote musicals, and I watched it with Chris. In general it was very disturbing but the music was fantastic and at the end as the credits rolled Chris turned to me and said that this should be our song. Without further ado, De-Lovely by Cole Porter as performed by Robbie Williams.
It’s de-reamy, it’s de-rousy, it’s de-reverie, it’s de-rhapsodie
It’s de-regal, it’s de-royal, it’s de-ritz, it’s de-lovely
