Hi everyone! Thanks for being patient with my lack of blogging. Things have been really difficult for P and I the last week or so. This last weekend was spent grieving with his family and celebrating his uncle's life. Honestly, while it was difficult, it was a beautiful experience. His family really has become my family, and being there was so hard, but it was what we both needed.
So, I've been thinking a lot about the wedding processional, or what I want to walk down the aisle to. What you may have noticed about me/us, is that I tend to embrace certain traditions, easily dismiss others, and can't make up my mind on a few (changing my name anyone?). Anyways, we decided a while ago that we are going to have a simple guitar and fiddle duo play our ceremony. It speaks to our southernness, we love it, and they will be joining the rest of their bluegrass band immediately following the ceremony for some serious revelry.
I mentioned to the fiddle player (who I feel so connected to already, as she is in grad school for education, just like we were last year), that it would be so cool if they could do a blue-grassy, simple version of Canon in D. She sent me this link, explaining that the first minute is more what they would sound like, since they wouldn't be rocking out quite as much as these guys (unless I feel like running down the aisle). So imagine it slowed down a bit, and enjoy.
I love it. Check it out:
Umm, amazing. They rock.
