Free In You

Happy Anniversary to us!
Brian and I are celebrating six amazing years of loving, learning, and growing together. 
I am overwhelmed with gratefulness for how deeply, deeply happy I am. 
Being married to Brian gives me hope-- 
Hope that love wins, no matter what.

I've had an Indigo Girls song called "Free In You" on my various playlists for years. 
It is Brian to me. 
I've included the song and the lyrics below  
{highlighting a few of the lines that get me every time} 
with a few of my favorite pictures from our wedding in Crested Butte, CO.
I do not take it lightly that I am able to be my true self 
ALL THE TIME 
with Brian. 
He gets me--and he loves me anyway--this is true, free in you, kind of love.



A hard knock
A cold clock
Ticking off my time
A long look
But no luck
Couldn't seem to find
Or unwind
Into peace of mind
While I was trying
A quick glance
A big chance
My heart beat like a drum


I saw you
And I knew
Chances just don't come
Round again
Not like this
First a laugh
Then a kiss
And I'm free in you
I've got no worries on my mind
I know what to do
That's to treat you right
And love you kind
Thank you ever on my mind
Love is just like breathing
When it's true
And I'm free in you
The lost time
And self pride
Are my big mistakes
A clear voice
A bad choice
Sounding like an ache
In my day
Not too bad
But too real
To go away
But now I'm free in you
I've got no worries on my mind
I know what to do
That's to treat you right
And love you kind
Thank you ever on my mind
Love is just like breathing
When it's true
And I'm free in you
And I don't know
How you show
Such gentle disregard
For the ugly in me
That I see
That for so long
I took so hard
(I took so hard)
And I truly believe
(I truly believe)
That you see the best in me
(That you see the best in me)
I'm enough, for your love
and the thought sets me free
Free in you
Got no worries on my mind
I know what to do
That's to treat you right
And love you kind
Thank you ever on my mind
Love is just like breathing
When it's true
And I'm free in you
Yes I'm free in you
