You know,

"You know" is a phrase that you can use to introduce an idea that you have. You say "You know" to let people know that you're going to say something new and interesting that they probably don't know about yet:

You know, this would actually be a great place to have our wedding reception.

You know, I'd love to, but I can't.

In the example above, "you know" would be pronounced quickly and without stress.
