I posted this last November ’09. And this morning, September ’10 is the first time this has happened again. It’s 4:45am. Everyone is still sleeping (but there are 3 babies instead of 2). It’s a cool morning and my office window was left open. I’m enjoying a warm cup of coffee. It’s peaceful and Heavenly, and I still love this song so, very, very much. I truly love my One Life Stand. Life may get challenging. The kids may throw me for a loop on any given day. There are loads of times I think “Wow, will it ever get easier?”. But in the end, I’m married to an amazing person. One who stands by me, supports me, and loves me and our children. He is truly my One Life Stand.
Here is the original post.
How fabulous is that title, “One Life Stand”. I’ve never been known as the music guru, but I know when I really like a song or when music really hits me…
Picture this moment with me. When I was in the midst of VERY early mornings working on this blog, I had one morning in particular that I just couldn’t sleep. So at 2:30 I left my husband sleeping contently and headed off to my computer. It was the first cool fall morning and I had left the office window open, so the room was particularly cold.
I made a warm cup of coffee (Peet’s Major Dickason’s – is there any other kind???).

About an hour later my east coast emails started arriving and I clicked on a link in a good friends email to see a video that had just been released.
I kid you not, it was one of those moments that grabbed at my heart strings. Although my husband and I did not start out as a one night stand (both of our parents just stopped breathing for a solid 60 seconds reading that line…) listening to Damon Castillo’s, “One Life Stand”, on that cold morning, holding that warm cup of coffee in my hand… with the whole house so peaceful and quiet, it just gave me that sweet, sweet ride down memory lane. The early start of my husband’s and my relationship, how much fun it was getting to know each other, all those moments that bring you so quickly to the present. We have been together 6 1/2 years, and married 3 years this Wednesday. I am married to an amazing person and we have 2 of of the most darling baby girls. I feel so fortunate to be sharing in this One Life Stand.
Take a minute to enjoy, grab a cup of coffee, a glass of wine, or get in your car and open your sun roof ALL THE WAY… listen to “One Life Stand”, download it from , share it with your friends, and appreciate your One Life Stand. I promise, the song will become a new favorite!
