Some Big News

Hello friends.

I'm still here. I realize this absence has been bad, really bad. I didn't leave a note, warning, nothing... just completely off the grid. There have been a few things going on in life.... like the following. I'll try to keep it concise.

1. I'm nannying during the week and working at a boutique here in Atlanta on the weekends. Things I've learned: I'm not ready to be a mom and I'm pretty darn ready for a full time, real person, benefits paying job. Like I wasn't aware of that one already :)

2. I am also, more excitingly, working part time and remotely for a fellow Theta in Nashville, doing social media - specifically blogging! I'm really, really enjoying it and it has been an great opportunity thus far. I am constantly challenging myself with design and content, and I'm getting so much better at Photoshop! The blog is called Sunshine & Sandals (check it out!) and it is a honeymoon focused blog. Let's just say I'm going to be a pro when it comes time for me to plan my own!

3. Speaking of Nashville, here's the big news. I'm leaving this city of Atlanta and embarking on what I hope to be a happy journey and experience. When a couple job opportunities didn't come through how I had hoped, I had to reevaluate my life and figure out a plan. And with a lot and a lot of contemplating, tears, prayers, and realizations, I decided that my time in Atlanta needs to come to an end. It was a big move for me to come down here knowing only a handful of people, with no job, internship, nothing. I've gained so much from my time here - both professionally and personally. I know that I can survive being completely on my own. But when it comes down to it, moving to a new city without some of my close friends was a lot harder than I expected. As my mom has told me, I'll never have college again, but I would like to still have a piece of it. With a move to Nashville, I'll be with my college friends and closer in location to friends from growing up, college, and my home. It's a better fit, and I am really excited to see what it brings. Now the hard part - landing a job!

I'll try to update more - I'm not promising anything, but I don't think a post here and there on style, home decor, music, etc. would be too much to ask for :)
