Brandi continues to be an utterly magical human being. She took the amazing photo at left -- just one of countless truly beautiful photos on her flick account -- and recently wrote another new song: "This Christmas Day." Check it. It's so sweet and real and true (and I've known her during the year span that the song covers) that it makes me cry with a mixture of awe, and admiration, and just squishy girl emotion. And I'm not a big cry-er.
