Hawkily Ever After: You Are the Best Thing

After making our grand entrances, it was time for Mr. Hawk and me to have our first official dance as man and wife.

I never really talked about our song-selection process, but Mr. Hawk and I both contributed songs from some of our favorite artists to a playlist. I added a few classic love songs to the mix, and over a couple months, Mr. Hawk and I listened to the music separately. We each had the same two or three songs on our individual lists, but when it came down to it, Ray LaMontagne’s “You Are the Best Thing” was our choice.

“Baby, it’s been a long day, baby

Things ain’t been going my way

You know I need you here

To clear my mind all the time”

“And baby

The way you move me, it’s crazy

It’s like you see right through me and make it easier

To please me you don’t even have to try”

choffin0203

“Oh, because

You are the best thing

You are the best thing

You are the best thing

Ever happened to me”

choffin0204

“Baby, we’ve come a long way, baby

You know I hope and I pray that you believe me

When I say this love will never fade away”

choffin0205

“Oh, because

You are the best thing

You are the best thing

You are the best thing

Ever happened to me”

choffin0206

“Now both of us have known love before

To come on up promising, like the spring, just walk on out the door

Our hearts are strong and are hearts are kind

Well, let me tell you what exactly is on my mind”

choffin0207

You are the best thing

You are the best thing

You are the best thing

Ever happened to me”

choffin0208

 You are the best thing

You are the best thing

You are the best thing

Ever happened to me”
