I come from a very musical family. Two of my uncles and my youngest brother are incredible guitar players, and Mr. Blue Moon’s brother has a great voice. I’ve lived in three amazing places for music: Nashville; Macon, Georgia, a mecca for Southern rock; and the Mississippi Delta for the blues. You would think that by now I would have at least made some time to learn to play an instrument with some proficiency or something. I guess it’s just not to be.

That said, I LOVE music even if I can’t really make it. Choosing music for both our wedding ceremony and the important dances at the reception was a lot more difficult than I anticipated, so I thought I would share some of my process for whoever is struggling with this like I did.
