"Out of the Blue"
 
Who doesn't love an upbeat love song? They just make us feel good! But while love may be grand, the road to finding it can be rather bleak. Five years ago, I moved to Orlando (for the second time) to finish a degree I had been plugging away at for ages. I had struck out in love and had no idea what my heart wanted. I gave online dating a spin with no success. Then one day on campus I ran into an old friend named Catie whom I hadn't seen in over two years. We decided to catch up over lunch and had a fantastic conversation. About a month later, we ran into each other again and decided to have lunch...again. (Keep in mind that during this time I was going on a lot of dates.) Then, one night at a mutual friend's party, Catie and I were chatting and I asked her, and I quote, "So how's ol' whats-his-name?". She then informed me that she and her boyfriend, whom I was referring to, had just recently broken up. I will never forget this moment because something happened in me right then and there. Outwardly I said something like, "Oh really?". My internal monologue, however, was more like, "ReeeEEEEEaaaaallyyyy?" (I think you can see where this is going.) Shortly thereafter I invited Catie to have brunch with me at a great place in Orlando (The Briarpatch if you must know). We ended up hanging out for about 7 hours and, you guessed it, the rest is history. I have now been with her for over 4 years and I am constantly taken back by her gracious spirit, amazing work ethic, lighthearted goofiness, love for her family, and affection for little ol' me. This song is about love's unpredictability and transformative power to lift us up (where we belong?). Enjoy! :)
