As you know, I associate sunflowers with Nif. I was listening to Spotify, and this song came on. Too good not to share.


Just The Way You Are

The past few days at work, I’ve heard Just the Way You Are more times than I can ever remember.

Thanks Jen ❤

For the Rest of My Life

I know, I know, I haven’t blogged in a while, and for that I am sorry. I’ve been swamped at work with projects, and even more busy at home.

I’ve always said how much music reminds me of Nif, as I think it was a big part of her life. There has been this new song out, that whenever I hear it, I instantly think of Jen.

After a few quick taps on my iPad, I present to you, my first photo slide-show.

Dad’s CD No. 1

Last week, my car was in and out of the shop because I needed new tires and brakes. My dad let me borrow his car so I could get to work, and I would occasionally listen to the CDs he had in the CD changer. One such CD was a gift from Jen, where she burned all of my Dad’s favorite songs, along with a few other eclectic choices. Whenever I listen to the CD, I get choked up on certain songs, just because they have so much meaning behind them.

May I present to you my Dad’s CD No. 1:


“Dreams; That’s Where I Have to Go to See Your Beautiful Face”

I know this song by Gavin DeGraw is about a break up, but a lot of the lyrics relate to me missing Niff.

(The lines in bold are especially true)


My Sister, My Sister, My Sister

Recently, I have found myself talking more about Jen. I have been talking about her mostly when conversing with friends or coworkers, and saying things like, “My sister did this,” or, “One time, my sister Niff said that.” I never follow-up with anything about her passing, because it’s really none of their business.


When I Look to the Sky

In college, one of my roommates had this song set for when her boyfriend (now fiance <3) called her. I always knew the song, but never actually listed to the words.

Now, whenever I listen to it, all I can think of is Niff.
