The Best Days

If you want to have a meaningful conversation with a teenager get in the car. No really! I don't know why but when you get in the car with a teenager they start talking! So I am in the car with my oldest and she says "Mom, you have to hear this song! Everytime I hear it I think of you." Well we listened to it together, I am in tears and she says " Mom, we have a pretty good life." I said "Yeah baby, we do."

The song is "The Best Day" by Taylor Swift. Here are the lyrics in case you can't read them on the layout.

"The Best Day"

I'm five years old
It's getting cold
I've got my big coat on
I hear your laugh
And look up smiling at you
I run and run
Past the pumpkin patch
And the tractor rides
Look now -- the sky is gold
I hug your legs and fall asleep
On the way home

I don't know why all the trees change in the fall
I know you're not scared of anything at all
Don't know if Snow White's house is near or far away
But I know I had the best day
With you today

I'm thirteen now
And don't know how my friends
Could be so mean
I come home crying and you hold me tight and grab the keys
And we drive and drive
Until we've found a town
Far enough away
And we talk and window-shop
Until I've forgotten all their names

I don't know who I'm gonna talk to
Now at school
I know I'm laughing on the car ride home with you
Don't know how long it's gonna take to feel okay
But I know I had the best day
With you today

I have an excellent father
His strength is making me stronger
God smiles on my little brother
Inside and out
He's better than I am
I grew up in a pretty house
And I had space to run
And I had the best days with you

There is a video
I found from back when I was three
You set up a paint set in the kitchen
And you're talking to me
It's the age of princesses and pirate ships
And the seven dwarfs
Daddy's smart
And you're the prettiest lady in the whole wide world

Now I know why all the trees change in the fall
I know you were on my side
Even when I was wrong
And I love you for giving me your eyes
Staying back and watching me shine

And I didn't know if you knew
So I'm taking this chance to say
That I had the best day
With you today

Well that was more than enough for me to want to scrap this moment! It's on these days when you feel like you did something right! (Love that girl!)

I made this layout for Scrapbooking From the Inside Out with this months kit "Nostalgia". The pattern paper is GCD Studios, Sunny Days collection. The cardstock is Coordinations. I sprayed the cardstock and the flowers with Maya Mist. The border is from Basic Grey, Nook and Pantry Doily Yellow and Cream. I also inked the edges with Distress Ink in Broken China. TFL!
