I like you!

I Like You (by Sandol Stoddard Warburg):

I like you because I don’t know why but
Everything that happens is nicer with you
I can’t remember when I didn’t like you
It must have been lonesome then

I like you because because
becauseI forget why I like you
but I do
So many reasons

On the 4th of July I like you

because it’s the 4th of July
On the fifth of July, I like you too

If you and I had some drums and some horns and some horses
If we had some hats and some flags and some fire engines
We could be a HOLIDAY
We could be a CELEBRATION
We could be a WHOLE PARADE
See what I mean?

Even if it was the 999th of July
Even if it was August
Even if it was way down at the bottom of November
Even if it was no place particular in January
I would go on choosing you
And you would go on choosing me
Over and over again

That’s how it would happen every time
I don’t know whyI guess
I don’t know why I really like you
Why do I like youI guess I just like you
I guess I just like you because I like you.

I love this book! Trying to find it to use at my red, white, and blue vintage ceremony in May. Did I tell you we're renewing our vows? So exciting! It is our 15th year anniversary!

We're having the ceremony at a barn on a maple tree farm. We doing vintage 4th of july picnic style for reception. The army girls are wearing 50's style navy blue dresses and my hubby is wearing his dress blues. I can't say what the guys are wearing because they will back out if they read this I'm sure. ;) The girls I think will carry daisies and little flags in for their bouquet...I'll not give away all our ideas yet..:)

If you have any patriotic vintage ideas for our special day, do share, pretty please! :)

I've picked up a few awesome, vintage goodies I will share next post!

Till next time~ Aubrey
