Brandy Day271: Love & Infatuation

image

Infatuation is described as an intense but short-lived passion or admiration for someone. Love? Love on the other hand is limitless. Unfortunately we cannot control how or when either happen. In my heart, I believe you know love. You feel love. You believe in that person, you trust in every part of them, regardless of the degree to which you love them. You want the best for them. You hurt when they do. You laugh when they do. You become emotionally involved. Most of that emotion & feeling is missing within the fury and excitement of infatuation. Love is a beautifully heart breaking part of life. When you fall it’s an amazing feeling, when your heart is broken its a shitty moment. Remember that. Remember how you felt during your highest of highs. Never forget how you truly believed the world was ending the first time your heart broke. 

Brandy Day230: Opposites Attract

Red & green. Stop & go. Bright stars in the dark sky. What a day.
Chatting with a friend who turns out is more like me than I’d ever thought. For this opportunity I am so grateful. Yes, these are the same tracks I was just kicked off of ;-).
A quiet night on the tracks as the heavy fog began to set in, leaving a slight chill in the air.

Brandy Day206: Nugget Sauce

Oliver is pretty legit! I got to spend some much needed time with KC grabbing breakfast, driving aimlessly & puppy play time at Mimi’s. Oliver loved it all. So well behaved & polite. He crashed hard on the way home next to a lens bigger than him 🙂 What a great day!

Brandy Day166: So Close Yet So Far Away..

Needed some time away from ‘life’, so I took a drive. Headed north to a place I’d recently seen photos of, Michigan City, Indiana. I must admit, I’m slightly upset that I’m just now seeing this part of Indiana for … Continue reading

Brandy Day161: Do You Want A Burger Bun Or Texas Toast?!

image

Another Monday evening spent with Alex. I enjoy his company and look forward to spending time with him each week. He’s such a great friend and the stories we share and memories we make are worth the wait every week.
Alex came my way this time (we now live an hour apart) we spent our usual time out driving during sunset before Waffle House. Windows were down when we came upon the humming of power lines. Alex was in awe as it was something he had never heard before.  It was so loud, just the buzzing of electricity screaming through the lines above us.
I’m thankful for friends like Alex. Where the company and conversation are more than enough and time can be enjoyed under the humming of electricity in the middle of nowhere, laughing.

Brandy Day138: Boo Bear

This is Alex. We met working together. I managed and he was the sous chef.  Three years later we have a great friendship. We’ve spent many nights cruising the country side, waffle house, nicknames, cat bites, laughter, hugs & a bond that time can only enhance.
I’m not sure how the name ‘boo bear’ came about but it stuck. So much so that other co workers began calling him by this.
Boo bear is the type of person who would do anything for anyone, people like that are hard to find these days. No matter what we always manage to have so much fun together!
Thank you for being such a great friend. A true friend. Thank you for always being there. Though….admit it, my way of doing asparagus on the grill is pretty amazing 😉 Love You Boo Bear!!

Brandy Day112: Gypsy Soul

image

Tonight I learned. I learned to be a kid again. I learned just how much I matter in other peoples lives. Love & happiness are what we make it. Some of the most simple moments are the best moments. There is something perfect about stars, tracks & quiet air. Waffle House & Van Morrison are perfect together at 2am. I have a gypsy soul.  Honesty is what it is, don’t fight it. I have a story and I need to share it. Sharing moments can mean more than sharing words.
Getting what you want and need comes to you when you least expect it.
