Today I find myself in a mood. A certain mood that I love when I get in, it's neither bad nor extremely good, it's somewhere in between. When I get like this I typically keep to myself more than normal and I listen to music. I used to always turn to music when I needed to reflect, feel, just be. I would use lyrics to describe where I was, what I was feeling, relate, gain a sense of comfort knowing someone else captured my exact moment and put it into words better than I could.

When my husband and I first started dating we would stay up for HOURS drinking wine and listening to a million different songs, old and new, and telling stories as to why they were so important. Me more than him but it was a way of getting to know one another beyond what we had already discovered.

I feel a sense of peace, contentment, just being. I think so many things, LIFE, happen so fast all around when you get a moment to just literally 'be' you should cherish it. My mind and my body seem to hardly allow for that today, I take advantage of my mood.

My background music for the day seems to indicate I'm getting into that holiday spirit, and all the love and warmth that comes with.

What's yours?

I love that song by Sara... it is so beautiful. I know what you mean about certain songs reflecting your moods. I do the same thing... sometimes I need a good sad song to reflect my feelings and other days I need something fast that I can get up and dance too!

I get in these moods too.

What a great song by Sara, thanks for sharing. Glad you feel contentment - I strive to feel this in my life, especially when I start a family. Maybe I will feel more content when I have kiddos, right now I feel rather restless but know it will pass.

I love you for posting Winter Song. I needed it tonight.
Happy Thanksgiving, friend. Squeeze your baby and your husband and enjoy the next few days before Dom breaks out his Christmas sweater.
