Our Song

February 23, 2008 at 5:54 pm (Uncategorized)

For 6 years, the two of us were songless.  Most couples have a song they can call one that they both enjoy, love, and call a “representation” of their relationship.  Jill and I didn’t have that.  We liked thousands of songs together, but none adequately enough to call one “our song.” 

Then we went to Hawaii.  We stayed at a beautiful hotel in Waikiki and were fortunate enough to have a balcony overlooking nightly Hawaiian entertainment and musicians.  One night, we heard this one song played by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole (don’t try to pronounce it, just call him “IZ”) and we instantly fell in love.  Have a listen of IZ’s rendition of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow/What A Wonderful World.”

Oh yeah, and that was the night I proposed too. Just a small detail I left out.
