On Saturday, we attended wedding reception #2 of 3 in celebration of the marriage of our good friends Scott and Sharon. They were married in Santa Barbara on April 26 and were only able to accommodate about 90 guests. Their solution: 2 additional receptions; 1 in Scottsdale with about 65 friends and 1 in Woodland Hills with 200 friends! During the champagne toast, Scott surprised Sharon with an original song for and about her which he'd been working on since shortly after they met. Let me just tell you that Scott is an incredibly talented musician - his voice sounded nearly identical to James Taylor's voice and he accompanied himself very well on the piano. While the husbands in the crowd rolled their eyes (just kidding) and the wives wiped away tears, we all had to agree that it was a GREAT song!! The working title is "There's A Woman In Arizona."
My husband, Dan, has also "written" a song about me. He "wrote" it when our kids were really young. He started with the theme song for the Olympics and inserted the following unique and original lyrics: I...love...my wife Marina...I love my wife Marina L. Berryman (repeat). Oh and there's a very catchy bridge too...Love her, love her, I I I I love her (repeat). When my kids were old enough to sit and watch the Olympic games, they were totally surprised and ecstatic to hear the "I love my wife Marina" song being played over and over again! Every time they heard it, they sang right along!!
