35 years and still going strong

Good morning, lovelies! Tomorrow is a special day for me. It marks our 35th wedding anniversary. In honor of the day I cherish, dearly and the man I love more with each passing day, I present to you our favorite 70s band.


I could not have asked for a better husband. God blessed me more than I deserve with this wonderful man. Thank you DH for the best days of my life ~ 35 years and still going strong!

Aubrey, If, and Sweet Surrender from The Best of Bread are our favorite songs sung at our wedding. I hold these tunes in my memory like the sweet fragrance of a rose forever.

Thanks for joining us for another week Monday’s Music Moves Me! On behalf of the lovely Dancing Queen, Marie and her Solid Gold dancers ~ Callie, Stacy, Naila Moon, & myself want to invite you to step on the dance floor with the 4M crew.

Happy Anniversary, Darling!

Love forever and always, Cathy

The Carpenter’s 1972 #2 billboard hit did not play at our wedding but it would have been awesome had it been one of our choices. Incidentally, I stumbled upon the most interesting trivia. Did you know We Only Just Begun was originally written for a bank TV ad? Who would have guessed, huh?


Our wedding song picks were two of our favorites by Bread. One of the two was….

The line from this song, You keep your rights, I’ll take your nights. No one can lose when we turn the lights out actually embarrassed me when sung on our wedding day. That was then, this is now. I may sing these words myself…eh em…just saying.

Wow, it’s smokin’ in here! Let’s keep moving, shall we?

My Wedding Music By Bread From 1979

Welcome to Monday’s Music Moves Me with Marie from Xmas Dolly,  head conductor and helping her to make sure things runs smoothly on the Love Train are co-conductors: Lorie from The Shewbridges of Central Florida, CALLIE from JAmericanSpice, and Stacy from Stacy Uncorked!


I love rockin’ on Mondays! I just love it when we can share the tunes rolling around inside our noggins, don’t you? There’s always a lot of music locked away just screaming to get out.

This week’s theme is “Songs played at your wedding (or the year of your wedding). If not married your favorite song when you were 21“.

DH and I married June 9, 1979 at Summitt Missionary Baptist Church in rural West Virginia where we attended. This is so retro, I know. Here’s to the couple!


Robin’s close friend, Tony Vance, (they were in a band together) song these two Bread songs at our ceremony.



Robin doesn’t play the drums anymore, but Tony still plays guitar and sings. He now jams for the Lord. Rock on, Tony! He’s the dude wearing glasses and a brown t-shit singing lead. Check out the video…
