When discussing with my husband on Saturday the thought of sharing in writing about our rightsizing adventure move, I was busy working on the artwork while he was finding music. Music? Huh? Yes.
Music is a key component of our marriage. He remembers songs that I’ve never heard of, like the one that inspired the category for the posts yet to be written about our move. I think you’d find it to be an interesting story.
The Folks Who Live on the Hill is a classic song from the 1930s, and although our next house was built in 1950, this song is just too appropriate not to highlight.
You Downtown Abbey fans (and who isn’t?) are sure to enjoy this rendition of this song sung by Michelle Dockery (aka Mary on the BBC series).
So although it’s a secular tune, it’s sweet and loving and promoting of a happy couple making their nest, growing their nest, and resuming the happy little twosome that shares laughter and memories…and I like to think that although this is about a house on a hill (like the one waiting for us), for me, it’s about a home that thrives no matter the location (flat or on a hill, in the suburbs or in midtown, nestled between others or visible on a corner) or the number of square feet available to the family that starts, grows, and sets the birdies free.
