Brad Paisley

This weekend I attended a dear friend's wedding.  This friend and I were part of a small group of six girls who I was incredibly lucky to find and mesh with during my junior and senior years of high school.  Up until then I had had some bad luck with friends.  Girls in high school aren't always the nicest (as most of you already know) and I had struggled with some pretty harsh circumstances until I came across this wonderful group of women.  Some of them were friends I had known for years and years... and I still feel blessed to call them my friends, but the rest welcomed me into their group with open arms and open hearts.  Caitlin was one of my new friends.  She was brilliant and beautiful.  An eloquent writer, she went on to become a fantastic journalist!

Anyway, Caitlin got married this weekend... and I couldn't be more thrilled for her!  Her new husband John (also a writer) spoke about their love at the reception.  I was completely blown away by his "spur of the moment" thanks to their family and friends for sharing this special day with them.  John spoke about his love for Cait in the most genuine and pure way.  The only word I can think to describe his speech was BEAUTIFUL.  I wish this intense and gratifying love for everyone on the planet.  I have never in my life seen my friend so happy.  I cannot wait to watch their marriage develop and grow into what it will most certainly become.  I heard this song on the radio as I was driving home from the wedding yesterday, and it just seemed so perfect!  I know that Caitlin and John are blissfully in love at this very moment... but I can only hope that they can look back years from now and feel even more in love than they were on their wedding day! God bless, Cait!

Love True-
Allison




"Then" - Brad Paisley

"I remember trying not to stare the night that I first met you
You had me mesmerized
And 3 weeks later in the front porch light taking 45 min to kiss goodnight
I hadn't told you yet but I thought I loved you then


Now you're my whole life now you're my whole world
I just can't believe the way I feel about you girl
Like a river meets the sea
Stronger than it's ever been
We've come so far since that day
And I thought I loved you then.

I remember taking you back to right where I first met you
You were so surprised
There were people around
But I didn't care I got down on one knee right there
And once again I thought I loved you then


Now you're my whole life now you're my whole world
I just can't believe the way I feel about you girl
Like a river meets the sea
Stronger than it's ever been
We've come so far since that day
And I thought I loved you then.

I can just see you with a baby on the way
I can just see you when your hair is turning gray
What I can't see is how I'm ever gonna love you more
But I've said that before.

Now you're my whole life now you're my whole world
I just can't believe the way I feel about you girl
Well look back some day at this moment that we're in
And I'll look at you and say and I thought I loved you then
And I thought I loved you then..."
