Mr. Murphy and I are the epitome of newlyweds.
We live in a dirt cheap apartment. We still get giddy around each other. We are still learning new things about each other almost everyday. We think that though life will have its hardships we will always be madly in love...and we will.
About a month ago while listening to the French Cafe Pandora station You and I by Miss Ingrid Michaelson came on. "Ukelele?!?" I was instantly in love. So, I texted John and told him immediately about my new musical gift that had been sent to me by the Pandora Gods. This song reminded me of us so so so much, even down to the talky about le France. We both hadn't heard much of Ingrid before so we were breathing in her music through our whole bodies. It was delicious. Sometimes when I listen to music I close my eyes and I can literally feel the music enter my pores. I learned to do that in tenth grade and music has never been the same since.
So, here we are being ridiculous, and completely ourselves. John didn't want me to make a big deal out of it BUT he has on a new shirt that I think is h-oh-tee-tee. And I am wearing some lovely new earrings from Finland. "Wait did she just say Finland? That's weird. Isn't that where there is an overabundance of reindeer?" The answers are yes and yes. Also, I have never been to Finland but my bestie is serving her LDS mission there and she sent me a shirt and pair of earrings from Finland for my b-day, and I love them.
You and I...Murphy style
And yes...maybe I am guilty of that being a Christmas wreath behind us on the wall...just maybe.
Ingrid Michaelson is one of my favorites!!
Agree with above statement, and I love your blog so much! You and the Mr. are so cute together and are amazing musicians! And your blog name-ingenious.

Don't you love newlywed bliss? My husband and I often hold hands and jump up and down while listening to some sweet jams. You just can't contain this kind of happiness!
Ok and ALSO...totally didn't realize YOU were the one singing AND playing until a minute or so in. Prob. because in my world, I'd be really cool and PRETEND to sing and play instruments. You guys ARE LEGIT.
