Today's "I am" is actually an "I love".
I love Country music.
Yeah, yeah, not a big deal you say. However, this is something that has become kinda important in my life.
I was in a relationship for 6 years with someone I thought I would marry. Well, it didn't work out, but it gave me a really good idea of what I wanted in a relationship, what was important to me, and what I wanted to do better the next time around. One of the things I keep coming back to though, the thing that I can't seem to find in the new people I have been dating since then, is a willingness to spend $200 on authentic cowboy boots, excitement about listening to a fiddle, and a love of country music.
When I was 8 months pregnant I went to see The Zach Brown Band at Blossom, a.k.a. an outdoor huge field on a hill. It was the best 3 hours of my life (even though I couldn't sit, stand, or walk for more than 15 minutes at a time). It was undoubtedly the best show of my life.
I definite a lot of the moments in my life in terms of the songs that hit me at the time. Music was even the thing that helped me let go of the hate that I felt for the boy of the 6 year relationship.
Right now all I want (besides world peace, and enough time to run every day, and a new car) is someone to sing this song to me.
Woman like you-Lee Brice
I love the innocent sarcasm and the sweet message behind the song.
I love country music. It is part of me, is part of what I want in the person I will spend the rest of my life with, and it is something that helps give me focus and inspiration.
And that is the point of this, right?
What is something that is important to you that you want to share with the person you spend forever with?
