Day 1 - My favorite song
My favorite song is Scarlet Begonia's by The Grateful Dead.  This song has made me smile for so many years and so many different reasons.  It was the song my husband and I joined our reception to as well as the song our beautiful little girl is named after.  The lyrics touch my soul every time I hear it.  It makes me smile and laugh.  It is such a beautiful song.  When I hear this song now that Miss Scarlet is here, I think of her growing up, being beautiful, and loving her life no matter what it entails.  Here are the lyrics : 

As I was walking round Grosvenor Square
Not a chill to the winter but a nip to the air
From the other direction she was calling my eye 
It could be an illusion, but I might as well try
Might as well try
She had rings on her fingers and bells on her shoes
And I knew without asking she was into the blues
She wore scarlet begonias, tucked into her curls
I knew right away she was not like other girls
Other girls
In the thick of the evening when the dealing got rough 
She was too pat to open and too cool to bluff
As I picked up my matches and was closing the door
I had one of those flashes I had been there before
Been there before
Well I ain't often right but I've never been wrong
It seldom turns out the way it does in the song
Once in a while you get shown the light
In the strangest of places if you look at it right
Well there ain't nothing wrong with the way she moves
Scarlet begonias or a touch of the blues
And there's nothing wrong with the look that's in her eyes 
I had to learn the hard way to let her pass by
Let her pass by
The wind in the willows playing Tea for Two 
The sky was yellow and the sun was blue
Strangers stopping strangers just to shake their hand
Everybody is playing in the heart of gold band
Heart of gold band
She is my Heart of Gold
