Walk Slow, Look Above

I feel like so much has happened in the past month that it would take 20 blog posts to try and describe. But since I have absolutely zero spare time to write about any of it, the highlights will have to suffice.

The beginning of my May 2014 was filled with both excitement and anxiety: excitement over a fabulous vacation in Mexico with all the people I love; and anxiety over a major career move I couldn’t make up my mind about until the very last second… Enjoying the beautiful beaches of Rivera Maya were a nice distraction, to say the least.

Needless to say, I did not come home relaxed and refreshed. I had only 1 week to formally resign from a position I loved and leave behind a group of people I’d come to call family. Ironically, my new home is called FamilyLife, and I, the new Brand Marketing Manager for the Weekend to Remember. As dramatic as it sounds, none of this was my doing. There’s a bigger Guy in the sky who’s calling the plays right now and I can’t tell you how at peace I am with it. (brochure needs updating- on my list of to-do’s)

(so much more to come on this later!)
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

And how’s this amazing contribution for only the first week on the job?

While I realize I’m still a newbie, I can honestly say I’m in love with it! FamilyLife is where I’m supposed to be.

But let us not forget the other business I’ve tied myself to. Ah yes, the photo booth. My partner and I have been working our butts off and couldn’t be more thankful! We are booked (almost) solid until August and this month was no exception…

And just last weekend, there was this minor little thing of my only sister’s wedding… No big deal, right? I was the maid of honor and spent hours agonizing over my speech. My sweet baby sister- 11 years my junior, was married away to the love of her life and I could not be happier for her…

she's still 3 years old in my eyes...

I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.

details on all of the above to come!
