Wrap It Up Pretty + Winners!
January 27, 2012
It's time to say goodbye to another fabulous week of inspiration here at SMP and we couldn't think of a more perfect way to send you off into your weekend festivities than with this heartwarming video by Spencer Combs.  You see, not only is Spencer one very talented photographer, but he also happens to be a wonderful musician, as well.  And the gift he presented his wife on their second anniversary is knock-your-socks-off, out-of-this-world amazing... the gift of song.  Lucky for us, every last touching moment was caught on film and, believe me, it will literally fill your entire heart with joy.  So, sit back, relax and prepare to take in every romantic second below.  Oh, and then press "replay," because it is just that good.  Enjoy!

From Spencer Combs... For my wife and I's 2 year anniversary I wanted to do something that scares me more than anything, play music for her.  We have been together for over 5 1/2 years and in that time she has been asking me to play and sing for her, but out of fear, I never did.  This summer I had the idea to write her a song, and play it for her. So I ended up writing "You" and my friend Zach, who mixed produced and recorded the song, said we should play it for her live with the whole band.  At first, I was like "NO WAY, that would be too scary."  But as I thought about it, I couldn't help but think that is exactly what I should do.  The best part about all of this is that Alex thought I was building her something and SHE WAS TOTALLY SHOCKED!  I blindfolded her with 2 beanies, put her in the car, and drove around the city, so she wouldn't know where I was going.  Finally, we ended up at our church, where I rented out the sanctuary for the night and hired a sound man and lighting guy.  The band was all set up and ready to go.  I don't think I have ever been more nervous, scared, excited, and every other emotion that goes into that, at the same time.  This is the video of the whole surprise.   Huge thanks to ZACH, Craig, Will, Troy, Ryan, Kirk, and Nick for all their hard work and help on this!
