Inspired by the musings of Ashley Elizabeth, I decided to post this picture. It was taken at the homecoming of our friend from his deployment with the military. It was so wonderful and beautiful to see his children welcome him home. It was so fun to be there for that moment!

And yes, I am surviving corporate, full-time ness. :) I work long days Monday through Thursday and then get a three day weekend! It's pretty exciting. My time is mostly filled with putting together a company cookbook to sell for charity, poster ideating, and a new economic research project. The economics will be interesting... Analyzing numbers has never been my strong point, but by the end of the summer I'm going to be a lot smarter about this whole refining petroleum thing!

I also began an office mural today. I've begun to recruit break-takers to draw little pictures and put them up on a blank wall next to my desk. Community art? I think perhaps... So far my biggest contribution has been an illustration of my favorite punctuation marks. I love (parentheses), [brackets], and {these guys}. Call me a nerd, but if you tell me that all of life can be explained using mathematical equations, I'll throw it right back at you. :)

{these ones} are {braces}
but that just proves that there might be a bigger typophile nerd than you out there somewhere.
