Our Forever Song

Today marks 88 days until my forever starts.
How can it be that I get to walk down the aisle with my daddy and see the love of my life standing at the end of it. Just thinking of it gives me chills.

One of the many moments I'm most looking forward to is our first dance as husband and wife. Quiet. Just the two of us. Letting the moment and words sink in as he holds me in his arms. That's when our forever starts.


Listening to "our song" tonight and it just fills me up.

We fell in love with Ben Rector's music together and have seen him in concert twice now. The very last time he sang "Forever Like That" - an unreleased song that is simply beautiful.

Every word or feeling that we have for each other is summed up in that sweet song... and we have our fingers crossed that he releases the album before March 9th! I think tweeting Ben everyday probably helps our chances, right?

I kid... I kid... 

(kind of.)

If not, we can borrow this live YouTube version that I may or may not listen to several times a week. It just makes your soul happy, you know?

"Forever Like That"
By: Ben Rector

And I'll be your rainy day lover.
Whenever the sunny days end.
And whatever the weather, we have each other. 
And that's how the story will end

I'll be your shade tree in summer mmm. 
If you'll be my fire when it's cold.
And whatever the season, well, we'll keep on breathing.
Cause we'll have each other to hold.

I'll hold - I'll sing...

Well, I wanna love you, forever I do.
And I wanna spend all of my days with you.
I'll carry your burdens and be the wind at your back.
I wanna spend my forever - forever like that.

And I'll be the words on the pages.
If you'll be my sweet melody.
And the tune can keep changing, cause I'll keep arranging.
And this is the song that we'll sing.

We'll sing...

I'm gonna love you, forever I do.
I'm gonna spend all of my days with you.
I'll carry your burdens and be the wind at your back.
I wanna spend my forever - forever like that.

When the rain comes, I'll be your shelter.
When the storms blow, we'll be together.
When the winds may fall, I'll be right by your side.

I'll sing...

I'm gonna love you, forever I do.
I'm gonna spend all my days with you.
I'll carry your burdens and be the wind at your back.
I'm gonna spend my forever - mmm, forever like that.


See, I told you it's amazing, didn't I? 
The words alone make me cry, but these are the good tears. The over-joyed, happy kind of tears.

And on very special occasions, Adam will dance with me in the kitchen and sing the words in my ear. Love those days.

...and he'll probably shake his head at me and give me that look for telling you. 

Probably going to be in trouble tomorrow...  :)

Is it March 9th yet?


  1. Um, I had never heard this song before...but I LOVE it!! What a great song choice!

  2. What a great song choice! The whole room will be teary eyed!

  3. Love this song. He is the nicest, nicest guy. For real. Out of everyone, I'd think he'd be most likely to actually show up :)

  4. HOLY MOLY I am just in tears right precious. Y'all are just adorable. And you know how I love Ben Rector. That makes me so happy :)

  5. This is SO sweet Meg! I always cry at my weddings when the bride walks down the aisle, and at the first dance. I remember my first dance too, and it's exactly what you described. Everything kind of fell away, and it felt like we were the only two people there. It was absolutely amazing! I can't wait to hear about what the experience is like for you too ;) xoxo

  6. I found you through Joelle's link up!

    When is your wedding date? My fiance and I are getting married in six months! Can't wait! :)
