Sydnie and Chad. Two people in my life who keep me laughing. I am so lucky to not only love my job, but to be able to do it with two people I love with my whole heart. Ry and I just got back from our yearly venture to San Diego, Chad and some other friends went with us. At one point in the back seat of the car, Chad and I were crying we were laughing so hard. And Syd? Well, what can be said about Syd. Here is a conversation we had the other day. Me - "Syd, what are you doing next Thursay?" Syd - "What day of the week is that?" Yes folks, that's Syd. In a nutshell. I love them both!!!
