Singing this song with Micah on a rooftop with our families was one of my top-favorite 3 minutes and 40 seconds of my life so far. (Tap video to hear the last minute of the song.) We wrote this song, because we felt like vows aren’t as much about promises for the sake of promises, as they are about giving yourselves reminders that you can hold onto over the highs and lows of a long, long time together. We wanted to remember why we chose each other and cast a vision over what we wanted to be and build together. We put it to music because we wanted it to sink into the corners of our brains -- to linger, to echo, to come back to us at odd moments throughout the day. I’ve added the lyrics below, but you can also listen to a full recording on Bandcamp (link in my bio).
Sailing through the sea with my megaphone
Landed on an island where someone speaks my language
Even when I whisper
I bring him every shell I’ve found
He puts each to his ear and hears the story
Oh, you see all the world in color.
Oh, you hold dynamic contradictions.
Unafraid without a destination.
Grounded in a storm.
I want to be along for that.
Found somebody who makes me float
Suddenly all the scary things are tiny
And they’re miles away
She’s looking inside my wrinkled brain
Shining a light in every hidden corner
And she sees everything
Oh, you pick up everything around you
Oh, you hold so many things at once
You arrange the pieces into beauty
In a breathtaking collage
That I want to be apart of .
“Destiny” is made for movies
“Chance” is too detached
What I know is I would choose you
Every time I will.
Take my hand / hold it tight
We’re heading out / to weave our great big story
And what sounds good to you?
Let’s buy cheap cars and thrifted clothes
Eat some veggies and some cheesy pizza
And never go camping
Oh, let’s always ask the questions
Oh, let’s let each other grow
Let’s stay present in this together
Choose guts and warmth and play
Get lost along the way
I’ll always, always choose you for that.

Ich muss ja dazu erwähnen, das es ca. 2Stunden gedauert hatte, bis wir diese Bilder bekommen hatten. Denn die richtige Ausrichtung des Blitzes, welcher den Sonnenuntergang miemte, war hier von großer Bedeutung für mich. Es sollte einigermaßen natürlich wirken um eine möglichst naturgetreue Täuschung zu schaffen. Dafür musste die arme @salina_klinker_makeup den Blitzhalter spielen und gefühlte 1000 mal sich anders positionieren 😅 Danke für deine Ausdauer und Geduld ❤ Salina!
Das Blumenhaarband ist übrigens von @dieblumenkinder ❤

I have to mention, that it took about 2 hours until we got these pictures. Because the right orientation of the lightning, which should be the sunset, was very of important for me. It should be nearest at reality it can be. For that @salina_klinker_makeup had to play the lightning holder and felt to be repositioned 1000 times 😅 Thanks for your patience ❤ Salina!
By the way the flower hairband is of @dieblumenkinder ❤
Have a nice Thursday! Tomorrow I am on a very special wedding 😍 I accompany a couple, which dare again with Ü50 ❤ In my story, I'll let you have a piece of it, so check it out tomorrow up to 1pm, if you can 😊
