Defying Gravity

A few things for today::
Number one - today marks my tenth year with the same Man, who I am PROUD to call my husband! Happy "Decade Day", Babe! Love you! XoXo

My high school Graduation

Number two - after listening to my Glee soundtrack, I found a song that hits home {as of late}. It is a show tune, and I am not afraid to admit that I LOVE the theatre and Broadway! And it is from 'Wicked'. Which I have yet to see, but really want to...I am getting off track! The song hits home, because at this moment in time I can relate to the lyrics whole-hardily. So without further adieu, here it is, "Defying Gravity"
{at least an excerpt from it, as performed on Glee}:

"Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes: and leap!

It's time to try
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
And you can't pull me down!

I'm through accepting limits
'cause someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I'll never know!
Too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I've lost
Well, if that's love
It comes at much too high a cost!
I'd sooner buy
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I'm defying gravity..."


  1. Happy decade day to you both! Seems like only yesterday you guys were secretly telling me about your crushes on each other :)

    I love that song too, nice pick! Next time it's in town we should go.

  2. Congrats!! Ten years...that's 87,600 hours you've been together... I love that!!
    Speaking of that song, I cried like a baby when I saw this live. Edina Menzel was it on youtube...or download the real version, Glee really didn't do this song justice.


  3. congrats to you guys!!!! I remember when you were just barely dating and we all worked together! I am so glad you are happy and in love. You found a good one! :)

  4. Hi. I hopped here on the SCL Blog Hop, am following you via GFC, and hope you'll come follow me at Planet Weidknecht!

  5. Happy Decade! How beautiful - that gives me hope that I can find someone to be with for that long! :)

    Don't worry - I am IN LOVE with Broadway as well :P That is one of the BEST songs out there - I don't blame you for identifying with it so much! Plus, Chris Colfer is a great singer for that song!
