Year 2/Day 17


Sometimes I wonder if you don’t pick your friends, instead they pick you.  Even if you’re not so sure at first.  One day you turn around and realize you’re going to miss the crap out of them once they leave. 

I’ve found that my closest friends are ones I can be my realist with.  I’m an emotional being, this I know.  I’ve been told I wear my emotions on my sleeve.  If I’m upset, I show it.  If I’m happy, you know it.

The day I realized you were my friend, and not just another coworker, was the day after I hated every part of you.  Now, in retrospect I realized that I didn’t actually hate you…I was just extremely frustrated with you.  You are a nut and that is why I can call you my friend.

Good luck girl.  Soak up that Florida sunshine, but don’t eat the corn.

Year 2/Day 16



They give an opportunity to look at your world with a different perspective, or see something you may have been overlooking.

Something about sunsets soothes me.  My favorite spot was sitting by the ocean at sunset.  The peaceful sound of water hitting nearby rocks and splashing up on shore.  The smell of salt in the air as a breeze brushes my face.  The extraordinary colors that the sky makes just after the sun sets. 

I love watching the pinks, oranges, and purples in the west blend with the dark blues of the east.  Add in some heat lighting in the dark skies of summer and I’m at peace.

Year 2/Day 15


Today was one of those days where my eyes where open.  I love seeing interesting photos in everyday objects. 

This shot was a glass of old soda at work.  Something about the light caught my eye, and I  got an interesting photo out of it. 

I kind of wish I had my camera at the time so the image would have been even more intense, but now I have an idea for a later project.

Year 2/Day 14


Worked all day, tired, still stressed about school and other things…but I’m going to forget all that right now, enjoy some McDonald’s, and watch a movie. 

I’ll continue dealing with all this stuff tomorrow.

Year 2/Day 13


Today was Dr. day. 

First we went to Will’s eye doctor appointment.  That’s where today’s photo came from.  He got pictures taken and they looked so neat.  I managed to snap a photo when no one was looking.

After that I had an appointment with a vascular doctor, who basically just scheduled a couple of ultrasounds later in the week.

The rest of the day was spent working on these stupid quizzes for school.  I’m not looking forward to this semester…but I’m trying to keep a positive outlook and make the best of it.

Speaking of though…I better get back to studying… ;)

Year 2/Day 12


Dead bug.  I don’t know why…

I was sitting outside waiting for a friend to pick me up and it was there.  So I snapped a picture.

Had fun with a friend from work today.  First we visited another coworker who just had a baby.  She was so tiny and beautiful!  Little hands, tiny fingers, adorible itty bitty feet…so. cute.

After that we did a little shopping and got some yummy bagels from Panera.

Once I got back home, Will and I drove by a few houses for rent.  Our lease is up the end of this month…so the hunt for a new place begins.  We found a couple that looked nice, and some that were an immediate No. 

Hopefully we can find a place that suits us.

Year 2/Day 11


My view from bed…where I plan on sleeping for…hours…

Worked almost 50 hours this week and I feel it.


Year 2/Day 10


Work and more work.

Tonight a bunch of us went out for drinks after work.  They are a bunch of crazy chicks!  But I love them!

Year 2/ Day 9


Worked a double today, and tomorrow…and Saturday…


Year 2/Day 8


I started working on another baby quilt for a girl at work…and stopped because I didn’t like it.  The colors just didn’t seem right to me.  Maybe it’s the yellowish green, not sure.  But after talking to some people at work, I suppose I’ll continue with it.

I also realized today that I have a fabric addiction.  Yes, my name is Brandi and I am a fabricaholic.  There’s even a shirt for me!


Haha.  No seriously…I have a problem… ;)
