Hi there! I’m Brandi Jo. You can just call me Jo, though. Welcome to my blog!
I’m a little bit different.
I’m okay with that, honestly. I’ve never been one that likes to be pigeon-holed into one set of defining characteristics.
Sure, there are certain personality traits that I carry and others that I don’t. There are definitely things about me that are constant and unchanging. My love for music, animals, whiskey and all things Dr. Pepper, to name a few. But there are also things about that don’t stay the same either. For example, my interest in reading. It comes and goes. Sometimes I read voraciously and other times, I’d rather watch another episode of whatever Netflix or Hulu show I’m binging at the time.
I’m a bit of a nerd.
I like spreadsheets. I like numbers. I like putting spreadsheets and numbers together. I like tracking numbers and seeing where they lead and what they tell me. I like figuring out what makes up a number and deciding whether or not it needs to change. Excel is a wonderful program and I use it daily. I get those warm fuzzy feelings when our personal finances reconcile at the end of each month…or day and I love thinking about the future and structuring our lives in the present to reach future goals.
…but I’m also a creative.
I like the freedom that comes from unstructured days and music filled afternoons. Mornings wasted away with nothing to show for it but an empty coffee cup and a half-finished book. Moments of time preserved through the lens of a Canon camera and created to last forever in a picture frame. And hours upon hours passed by stringing letters together to create words, which group together to form sentences that stick together to create paragraphs, which pull together to – hopefully – move people.
Nerd and Creative. I am not one or the other. I am both.
I am also a wife and mother to four dogs (yes, dogs…not kids). Other than that, there is only one other thing you should know about me: I love Jesus.
Oh! And I think you’re remarkable.
…okay, so that was actually two more things you should know about me. Sorry.
