Music has always been a huge part of Cecily and my relationship: we met in our high school band, we’ve gone to countless concerts and festivals and we’ve played at a few open mics over the years. I remember back when we first started dating I spent a full night burning Cec copies of 3 dozen of my favourite albums. Our life is accompanied by an ever-changing soundtrack that helps us along when we work, drive, cook or dance around like fools.
So this year for Valentine’s we thought it would be fun to put together a little mixtape for you. We call it ‘Life In Love’—12 songs that you’d probably hear if you spent a little time in our apartment. Many of these tracks take us back to happy memories during our relationship—while others are new or local bands we’ve found recently. We’re hoping there’s at least one song on the list that you haven’t heard before (like ‘My Repair’ by The Noises 10 and Brandi Carlile—we just discovered it this week).
Want to have it a listen? ‘Like’ us on Facebook to hear the playlist. If you still haven’t bought your Valentine a gift then go out and buy an iPod; slap this playlist on it and tie a red bow around it. You can even say you made the mix—we won’t tell! 😉
Have a happy Valentine’s Day!
