SSI day 3

Today was really nice. I got up and went for a bike ride, then took a shower and got ready for brunch at Cafe Fredrica (my fave) with Sister Billie. She's my Gran's older sister, and we call her that because that's what my Gran calls her :) She and Christie, who helps her out, picked me up and went to brunch and I had delicious cinnamon rolls and bacon as usual there. All this healthy eating and exercise deserves a treat like Cafe Fredrica once a week, I think ;)

Then we went to Joseph's Jewelers, where Sister Bil always goes, to get my bracelet shortened. For our birthdays and Christmas each year, my Gran gives my sister and I something of our moms. This year for my 21st birthday I got her beautiful gold bracelet with a gold charm with rubies. It matches my ring that was my mom's as well. Sister Bil and Anne (my mom's sister) bought it for my mom a long time ago as a present. So it's really special :)

While I was there, I found this beautiful necklace that I fell in love with and decided to spend my birthday money on as a special 21st birthday gift to myself from all my family who gave me money for my bday. I didn't want to pay all at once so I don't have it yet, but later this summer I will :) For my birthday, Joe said he wanted to get me a nice lady bug necklace, and that I should pick out one. He got me one 4 years ago and has gotten 2 more for me since as they break, since they're not the best material. They've always been extremely special to me, and if you notice, I never take it off... ever. But it'll be nice to have one that should last forever :) I found a beautiful ladybug necklace that would be perfect with that necklace I got for myself, worn together. I asked Joe what he thought when I got home and he said he'd love to get it for me if it's the one I want. He was so sweet and it just reminded me how lucky I am to have him in my life for the last 4 and a half years. I'm waiting to get it until I can get my other necklace, though.

Then I got home and did P90x which was a great workout and left me feeling tired but good :) I showered and headed out to take photos in the park I love right by my Gran's condo. Here they are!

  1. Oh Emily, there is something so beautifully and heartbreakingly intense about these, especially the black and white portraits that almost brings tears to my eyes.
