I thought I would take a second starting off to explain our name. Cory and I both wanted to find a name for our social media accounts that reflected us and how we feel about travel while also being relatively simple and catchy. After lots of brainstorming on our long drive back from Baja, this (If its the beaches) is what we kept coming back to.
For those of you who don't know us our favorite band is The Avett Brothers. They have many songs that mean a lot to us, especially as a couple. I actually walked down the aisle at our wedding to their song " I and Love and You" So it's pretty fitting...at least to us to use an Avett song as the anthem for our adventures. Below I will post the lyrics to "If it's the beaches" and as you read through them (particularly the last verse) we hope you see why it works for us as a name.
If it's the beaches
by: The Avett Brothers
Don't say it's over Cause that's the worst news I could hear I swear that I will Do my best to be here just the way you like it Even though its hard to hide Push my feelings all aside I will rearrange my plans and change for you
If I could go back That's the first thing I would do I swear that I would Do my best to follow through Come up with a master plan A homerun hit, a winning stand A gaurantee and not a promise That I'll never let your love slip from my hands
If it's the beaches If it's the beaches' sands you want Then you will have them If it's the mountains' bending rivers Then you will have them If it's the wish to run away Then I will grant it Take whatever what you think of While I go gas up the truck Pack the old love letters up We will read them when we forget why we left here
