My family is so incredible; I am so fortunate to have so many great role models and best friends. I can and do tell y'all anything. I'm discovering more and more that what we have, that whole Brady thing, is really rare. Few family units function like we do... I love it!
Good men are hard to find, yet I have found one that stands by me through thick and thin. I think back to the beginning of our relationship and realize that it's kind of a feat that we've survived... Starting long distance two months into our relationship, maintaining it for two years so far, and determined to do two more? I think we're nuts, but I guess you kind of have to be crazy for long distance?
I have truly stellar friends. We may have any number of differences, but that makes it interesting and fun. This summer so far has given me a great opportunity to get to know Elisha a lot better and I have discovered that she is incredible. Granted I already knew that, I didn't know just how very much. She's so level headed and grounded, a rock. Best yet, we have ridiculously silly times together! She never judges me, just loves me. And while this is the way it's always been with her, I think I just appreciate it more now. It's a lot like having my sisters here...
My life in general is really good. All around.
Praise be to God.

- I was hanging out at the Price's house yesterday with Ed, Sharon, and both sets of Tripp's grandparents.
- Ed's laid wood flooring in the den and plans to do the rest of the downstairs... Eventually...
- Ramona, a family friend, came over to drop something off and stayed for a while:
Ramona: Eddy, when are you going to finish the rest of the flooring?
Patricia: I give him two years.
Ed: C'mon. It'll be done well before that.
Ramona: (to Patricia) Well, you're wedding will be the next big thing around here I suppose.
Patricia: Right, I give him two years.
Ramona: You hear that Sharon? Patricia says she's getting married in two years!
Patricia: Sharon, if that's news to you, then I'm surprised.
Sharon: Nope. Not news.
Ramona: It is to Tripp, right?
Patricia: I guess? Maybe, we'll see...
Ramona: You know they'd still come to your wedding even if it wasn't. They like you.
Patricia: I'd bet they'd hate me if that happened!
Ed: Depends on how bad the break up is...
It really was a good day; Tripp's grandparents are amazing! And crazy! But the good kind- not literally insane, like we're used to.
Sharon even called me "the daughter she never had, but always wanted" and it felt good :)
