This is the fifth week of Amber's awesome song linkup. If you're not already participating, go to her blog, Goodnight Moon and join in! If you don't want to share a song this week, that's cool - but definitely check out the other bloggers who have shared a song, and rock out with us. Oh, and please leave some comment love (especially for ME, I la-la-la-LOVE comments!)
So, this week's song choice makes me grin, and almost brings a tear to my eye, simply for the fond memories. I had the opportunity to visit with my sister and her SEVEN children over the weekend. She lives in another state, so we normally only see each other every other year at our family reunion (that reunion is coming up in just four months, so I will get to see them all AGAIN soon). She's not my only sister, in fact I am the middle child out of EIGHT kids. Now that we're all grown, with kids of our own, well lets just say that reunions can get a little crazy. In a fun sort of way. More on that later (like July-ish).
Anyway, this song, "Oh L'amour" by Erasure is one that my sister and I used to play really LOUD in the car when she got her license and was allowed to drive us around. I remember one particular night that she let me tag along with her and her 'cool' friends to go to a regional church dance, and she and I each fell for these cute guys who happened to be from the same city - we later found out the two guys we liked so much were BROTHERS! Ha ha ha. It was rare for us to get along that well as kids, so I cherish memories like this one.
On the way home from this visit with my sister over the weekend, this song came on the radio and TOTALLY took me back, so I had to share it with you all! ENJOY!
