{SCHMALTZ DAY: jamboree}

it's schmaltz day. a day for reminiscence of the sappiest kind.

here's this week's schmaltz:

this is barclay and i singing a wee set of songs at a jamboree in...2009, i think. we were fairly freshly engaged and both sets of parents were right in the front row. precious, right?

one of the songs we sang: 

and another, minus the high female parts that are in swedish:
{this song also ended up being the recessional song at our wedding that fall.}

we just like music a lot. playing it, listening to it, listening to each other play it. our most recent favourite activity involves me at my piano teaching him to play the old complicated classical pieces on his electric guitar. we try to go as fast as we can, and it's kind of exhilarating, in a music-geek couple kind of way.

schmaltzy, i know.


  1. This is adorable! You two are adorable. :)

  2. Really great schmaltz today, Suzy. I wish you had video of this day!
