Letter 16: My First Love

31 Letters To My Future Husband

 

Redd Foxx; Betty Jean Harris

Isn’t this the sweetest picuture of Redd Foxx and his then wife Betty Jean Harris Foxx

Dear Future Husband,

Hey! How are you? I hope that everything is going great for you! If not, then I hope that by the end of this letter you will be grinning from ear to ear. It’s so cold here right now. I’ve been in all day writing and trying to network. I normally listen to music while I work and today was no different. One of my favorite songs came on by Rene and Angela, “My First Love.” I love that song because it’s so true. Although it talks about “first love”, I think that true love is the basis of the song. Because you are my husband, you are my one and only love and time will never change it, come sun or rain!

Love Your Future Wife,

Courtney(Insert Your Last Name Here)

These Are The Makings Of You!!

Benny Biceps Thirsty Tuesday

So guess what day it is……..Benny Biceps Thirsty Tuesday!!!! Yes it’s actually the day when thirst is real and okay! So I am going to quench today’s dehydration with Tyler Lepley and Curtis Mayfield! I bet  you guys are like “What the Hell”? Stick with me here, it will all come together below, lolx.

So yesterday   “The Makings of You.” By Curtis Mayfield popped up on Itunes Radio while I was trying to find material for today’s posts. I didn’t have anymore skips. Now the funny thing is Jay-Z and Kanye sampled this song for a song on the “Watch the Throne Album.” This one one of my favorite albums of 2011 and two of my favorite songs were the song at the beginning and end. ( I actually have more than 2, hey it was a dope album) The song in the beginning was “No Church In The Wild“. This song appears everywhere even in one of Tyler Lepley YouTube videos. He even quoted what I say is  Hov’s best line from this song as his caption for his Instagram photos.

Now the last song is “The Joy” featuring Pete Rock, Charlie Wilson and Kid Cudi. One of my favorite favorite parts was when Jay come in on his verse with “This is Mama’s sh#%”. That made me love this song.  This is the song where they sampled “The Makings Of You.”

Now how do Curtis and Tyler mesh. Well I never really liked the song by Curtis Mayfield until I had a chance to listen to it yesterday and listened to the words. While I listened to the words and how sweet they were someone popped in my head and a picture showed up in my Twitter Timeline of a gentleman wearing a pair of Jordan Sneakers. Jordan sneakers are the favorite shoe of  that someone who popped up. ( That I am pissed off at right now) He favors the guy in the picture. The guy in the picture was Tyler Lepley. It happened to  have always been one of my favorite pictures of Tyler. Now do you guys see how everything relates? Isn’t it just grand???  You guys know how I love the power of coincidence. Now this song will forever remind me of Tyler, lolx.

MC: Relationships After 25: Love Is Stronger Than Pride?

Mommy's Corner

love is

Cover of "Stronger Than Pride"

Cover of Stronger Than Pride

 

 

One of my favorite songs comes from the 1980’s breakout artist Sade from her album “Stronger Than Pride“. The song is called “Love Is Stronger Than Pride.” Listening to this song as a child, a teenager and early into my adulthood, I never really paid attention to the words. I just knew that Sade had this backup singer that made that song hot! I listened to the song in 2011 one night when it randomly came on Pandora and the words hit me like a ton of bricks. So I had to stop by and ask the question is love stronger than pride?

There’s a part in the song that says ” I can’t hate you, although I have tried!” I think that when the love is true, no matter how hard you try to forget that person or the world tells you that you’re a fool for still being in love with that person, you can’t run from your heart. Lying to yourself, replacing the one you love with someone else only works for so long.  Trust me, I know, lolx/

Is Love Really Stronger Than Pride?

What do you guys think? Is Sade right?  Comment below!
