(This is my favorite photo from this day, which is part of the reason I chose it for Project365. It was a good day – for several reasons.)

St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church (22/365)

St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church
126 West Georgia Street
Indianapolis, IN

Among the most revered landmarks of Indianapolis is Saint John the Evangelist Catholic Church, the oldest Catholic parish in Indianapolis (and the former pro-cathedral), standing since 1871 in the heart of the downtown business district. Founded in 1837 largely by immigrants from Ireland, St. John still serves old and young, those from office and home, visitors and residents—all worshiping in an atmosphere of beauty, peace and security. Visitors are always welcome at St. John, where Heritage and Hope meet.

(Side note: I took a quick photo of this one and didn’t realize that I had framed Steak ‘n Shake so nicely through the sculpture. I love that place and this makes me laugh. Perfect for the Project 365… Steak ‘n Shake isn’t in my region, so I only get to partake when I am in the midwest for work!)

View from my hotel… (20/365)



View from my hotel… (20/365), originally uploaded by kimberlyfaye.

View from my hotel window at the Westin Indianapolis. I planned to take a photo on the plane to use as my Project 365 photo for the day but I was too terrified. I’m not a fan of small planes that cause my 5’7" on a good day self to hit her head… not fun.

Eisenhower Executive Office Building (19/365)

One of my favorite buildings in all of DC… I think it is absolutely amazing.

The Eisenhower Executive Office Building (EEOB) was formerly known as the Old Executive Office Building (OEOB), is located next to the West Wing, and houses a majority of offices for White House staff. Originally built for the State, War and Navy Departments between 1871 and 1888, the EEOB is an impressive building that commands a unique position in both our national history and architectural heritage.

Designed by Supervising Architect of the Treasury Alfred Mullett, the granite, slate and cast iron exterior makes the EEOB one of America’s best examples of the French Second Empire style of architecture. It took 17 years for Mullett’s masterpiece to finally be completed.

It is located on 17th Street, N.W., between Pennsylvania Avenue and New York Avenue, and West Executive Drive in Washington, D.C.

Finally! (17/365)



Finally! (17/365), originally uploaded by kimberlyfaye.

Since I quit smoking about six and a half months ago, I’ve been pretty much obsessed with the Candy Cane Tootsie Pops. I purchased some of eBay (don’t judge) at the end of June and finally received them today! Just in time too… my stash ran out about a week ago and I have to fly to Indy for work on Monday morning. I’m pretty sure between the flight and the conference I will need lollypops and I am quite relieved I won’t have to resort to the regular fruit-flavored Tootsie Pops!
