I am re-reading that first section and it is all kindsa cray cray. If you are still with me, then, my friends, I thank you.

Okay, now that you are caught up, let me continue on to today's post. First, let me preface this by saying today, I'm cheating. <facepalm> Yesterday I had already decided on today's tune, so put on my headphones and gave it a listen. Then I let our playlist continue to spin out when I ran across a second song that I just love. Since we only have one more day in our week of music and I have tomorrow's song picked out I decided to go a little cray-cray and post them both.
My first song for today is All of Me, by John Legend. One of the things that draws me to Erin is her complete openness. She isn't afraid to show me what she's feeling and always tells me what's going on inside. Even if I don't want to hear it, I still want to hear it. I don't know if that makes any sense to anyone else, but it SO true. If she's upset, she doesn't hold back from me. She doesn't withdraw from me. Erin puts herself out there..for me. I can't even begin to tell you how much this touches my soul. She cares enough, she loves me enough, to talk to me. I've told her how important it is that no matter how she feels to always always always talk to me. (Is there a theme here?) and she ALWAYS does.
To me, everything about her is beautiful. All her perfect imperfections. Neither of us is perfect and we don't pretend to be. But we put all of ourselves into "us.' Give ourselves over completely to the other. I've never experienced anything like this before and now that I have, I know that I could never feel complete without it. Without her.
Here is the song, All of Me, that describes the beauty of giving yourself over to another.
Here are a few pics of some of our adventures together.
So, my OMG-he's-doing-two-songs second song is Then by Brad Paisley. I'm including this one because my world is full. The maximum amount I'm able to love someone has been reached. I care about Erin as much as is humanly possible and way way beyond what I thought I was capable. I go to sleep at night happy with how much I love her and then I wake up in the morning and realize that I was wrong. I love her more than I did the day before.
Each day I go through this cycle and each day I'm surprise that I love her just a little deeper. The more I get to know her, the more time I spend with her, the more I feel bonded to my lady. It's inexplicable. It's unexplainable. It's unfathomable. Yet there it is.
So, here is my second song choice, Then.
Until tomorrow, my friends. Have a great day!
