My 30 Day Challenge

I stole (okay, borrowed - stole is kind of harsh!) from a blog I have been reading for quite some time. She is a really great read, seems like a really great gal, and has gone through fertility issues as well, so I feel kind of connected to her in some way. She started this blog topic list at the beginning of September, and it seemed like a really interesting way to get to know someone. Here goes my crack at it, and knowing me, I'll get to day 2 and not post again for a month, but I'm really going to give this a good effort!!

Here is the list of topics, and below it, I will tackle day #1...

Day 1

Favorite Song

I have a lot of favorite songs. It really depends on the mood I'm in... I'm the kind of person who would say "oh, this is my favorite song" and then I'd hear another song and say "oh, wait this is my favorite song"... Most of the songs I love have a great memory attached, or some sort of sentimental meaning for me.

Here are a few of my favorites:

"American Pie" by Don McLean - it's just such a poetic song to me about such a sad tragedy. I love anything with a story.

"My Little Girl" by Time McGraw - This song came out in 2006, the same year our daughter (whom we waited almost 10 years for) came along. Just play this video for me and you'll have me in tears.

Pretty much anything by Garth Brooks. Yep, the man is that good. And, better in concert!

I'm not a huge fan of U2, but the song "With or Without You" is such a gut wrenching, all or nothing song, I just love the passion it has.

I could go on and on, but I'll leave you with another one of my very favorite songs:

(I promise, I'm not a 16 year old girl, but you know, because my daughter loves Jacob from Hedley, I kinda have to watch the videos....)
