And just like that....

Oh hey there!  I know, it's been a long time since I've visited this little space of mine.  But I have good reason to be so absent... I was out enjoying so much of the summer which has been insane for us that trying to find 5 minutes to visit here seemed impossible.

So much has happened since I last wrote.

  • My contract gig with work ended.... after a long two years I found out in July that it was going to officially end.  So with that, I started the process of job hunting.  At first, I heard nothing... then all of a sudden, I was getting phone calls all day long and had a gazillion phone interviews and a gazillion in person interviews.  Then it came down to two positions that were on the same exact schedule... I chose a position as a Project Manager... which meant I stayed working for the company that I freelanced for, just a different department. and most importantly, as a full time permanent employee.   Funny how that works huh?  I am super excited to be in a challenging role that is new to me.  So far, I am enjoying it.  There's a lot of changes and new things being thrown around, but that stuff is what excites me and I thrive in a new, challenging environment.  I have made myself uncomfortable and it's amazing.  Remember, the minute you get comfortable in your job... that tells you that YOU need to change something.  I was too comfortable and glad that I was forced to realize that.  
  • I have a ONE YEAR OLD.  I can't believe that a year has passed since we were blessed with our baby girl. This time last year was hard for us as we had a baby in the NICU.  But here we are now with a healthy baby girl who loves to giggle just like me and is filled with life and love.  We couldn't ask for more.

  • Apparently all of our friends decided to get married this year.  We have gone to one wedding two weeks ago which was fun.  I had the best experience ever going dress shopping for it as well.  Went into the fitting room with 3 dresses to begin with and walked out with 1 of them.  I think we were in the store for an hour.  I felt great and everyone complimented me saying it looked good so WIN. This Saturday we have another wedding and then another one in October. Wedding bells are ringing! And our wallets are hurting. LOL
  • And just like that, September is here.  The summer is winding down and I can't wait for the fall weather to come!  I am not a big fan of this heat wave we have this week.
