Do you still remember things you loved from childhood? Was there ever anything that stuck out? For whatever reason you just stuck to something. Grabbed hold of it and never let it go?

For me, that was The King. The King of rock & roll. Elvis Presley, the man himself.

I’ve always been musically inclined. Songs have always spoken to me, like poetry set to tune. His songs may not have been super deep or intense- but they sure spoke to me. Something fierce too.

I was only three years old when I announced the SECOND man I would marry. Yes, the second. The first being my Daddy. Apparently, I’d already told him we’d one day be wed. He just hugged me closer and told me we’d see how I felt years down the road.

Unlike Daddy though, I didn’t need his approval for my betrothal to Elvis. I was gonna marry him come hell or high water. At age three. Three. I still can’t believe it myself. The home videos and my parents’ testimony though has been proof enough now. I wasn’t even phased when I gently found out I was born well after he had died. That was my future husband, or bust.

Fast forward almost thirty years, and my tastes have obviously changed. I’ve found my husband, my king. The Hubs himself gets a chuckle hearing stories about my love for Elvis in my younger years. 

I’ve gotten a bit more realistic about things sure, but my love for all things Elvis Presley haven’t dimmed a bit. Time couldn’t touch that! I still groove to his music, I’ve made sure all my kids are familiar with his hits. I own all his movies and have made sure they also have a healthy appreciation of those too.
