Not a Review...but still Fabulous

Okay, this isn't a book review, but it is something dear to my heart. Also it is quite fabulous and so I'm sharing it. There will be another book review up later this week.

Seven years ago, on Valentine's day, my husband proposed to me by singing the song "Unforgettable" and changing some of the lyrics so that they were about us. Every year since then he has taken another song and done the same. This year he went to the next level.

He was approached by our friend (singer/songwriter/guitarist Mike Mercado) to sing a song he was working on. Mike had the tune, but didn't have the lyrics. Then Dan suggested that they do a song together for my Valentine's day present. Mike was inspired and after he got some information about our courtship he wrote the lyrics. So Mike wrote the song, Dan practiced in secret, they recorded it. Hours of labor went into this Fabulous song. So I'm sharing it with the world. (This song is copyrighted to Michael Mercado, 2010)

My husband then put together this slideshow of pictures of us from our courtship and wedding. (Isn't he just adorable? Look at how young we look! He has hardly any gray hairs!)

Mike runs a professional studio (Xcytble Sounds) out of his home. There are other fabulous songs he has written and recorded on his website as well.

Then let me know what you think!! :)

Thanks for listening!

Hey Stephanie! How awesome! What a great Valentine's gift from your sweet hubby. Just FYI... I couldn't get the slideshow to play. It said the video wasn't available! I can't wait to see it though. I'm going to go to Mike's site right now to check out the song!

SO fabulous. I played the video for my daughter and she loved it so much that she danced around the living room and she isn't even 2 years old yet.
