City and Colour's "Northern Wind" is a song we hold dear to our hearts, and a song we always listen to when we are apart. It's ours. It will be our first dance, when that perfect day comes. I thought, what's more special than putting that on a canvas?
So, that's exactly what I did. Painted bits and pieces of lyrics sprawled out over music notes. It's one of my favorite works to this day. I can't wait until he comes home and we can find a spot to display it. He's got a really good eye when it comes to hanging, so I should probably wait for him to use the hammer and nails.
Remember, don't forget to do what you love. We all get busy sometimes, but if we can find that quiet time to practice something that we find happiness in, then grab onto it. It's valuable. It's special. It's what makes us who we are.
