Journal wrecking commenced last Friday. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, read the Week 1 post about the Wreck This Journal book blogging group .)

Brandi Reynolds has been one of my favorite bloggers for the past few years. I’ve read along as she’s explored art, photography, yoga, and life. One of my favorite things about Brandi is she’s never afraid to try something new or change directions if she feels called to do so. This month she has announced she will no longer be blogging.
