As I dust off the old keyboard, it dawns on me that I haven’t posted on my blog in over a year. That realization is not okay. So much has changed. So much has happened and I have so much to share. Even if my readership is low, this blog has been a great space for me to enhance my writing skills, get my thoughts out there in the universe and run with my ideas.
Let me get you up to speed on the last two months, everything else I will do in a year recap coming next month. Yes, you’ll have to wait a little longer for some huge updates, but in the meantime, I promise, I will give you something now and a few posts until the yearly recap.
Set that clock to September 2017. It’s Labor Day and David (yes, he’s still around) and I are far from laboring. My fiance (David) *squeals* (see I’ll sprinkle some fun facts now and again) and I we’re on the long journey to Charlotte, North Carolina! With job offers in hand, we knew it was the right choice to make the move. We’re 2 hours away from my folks in Asheville. Closer to the mountains, have countless breweries in our backyard and are loving this slower pace of life.
Since starting our new life in Charlotte. I started working at Greater Matthews Habitat for Humanity and I am the newly appointed Director of Development. I build relationships, find sponsorships and advocate and educate our community. It’s so different from the lobbyist life I had in DC, but I love how the impact is true and everlasting.
A little over a month ago, we jumped on another awesome opportunity and got a pup! Jaxx is our new bundle of joy and we couldn’t be more happy with her. Our mornings are consumed by running with her and snuggling up with coffee. Jaxx is so much fun and a ball of energy. She loves being outdoors and she was even featured in our engagement photos!
I’m still teaching spin class and loving it. I found a newly opened studio: Ride or Die and I am teaching every chance I get!
Charlotte has been good to us for our first few months. I can’t wait to see what this new adventure brings us. Stay tuned for more deets and what’s to come. I’m happy to be back, y’all!
