It’s the start of the A to Z Challenge – hurray!!! And that means that today, April 1, starts off with the letter A. My theme is Ladies I Love, which will feature individuals, or groups of women, a type of woman, non-human women, fictional women, and who knows what else (but still women)! Today’s featured Lady I Love is Anya Marina, a Portland-based singer-songwriter that I actually learned about when I was living in San Diego. She has such a sweet, smooth voice and her music is simple, which I appreciate in a world full of noise. My absolute favorite album of hers is called “Slow and Steady Seduction: Phase II”. It is my favorite because it reminds me so much of the time that me and my husband were dating back in 2010. In fact, Christopher played “Vertigo” from that album on his phone while he was waiting for me to get done prettying myself up in the bathroom so that he could propose to me! I took so long that I finally noticed that the song had played like three times in a row, so I came out to see what was going on, and there he was with the ring, with “Vertigo” still playing in the background. Here’s the song for you to listen to and enjoy!
Every time I hear Anya Marina’s “Vertigo”, I think of my Christopher and that perfect day. And just fyi, if you’ve made it this far, I’m proud of you. This is my mushiest, sappiest post in April, so thanks for reading and make sure to come back again! I’m excited about the other ladies that I’m featuring this month!
