My First Day

Today I start a new job and I’m thrilled.  Yay! Here’s to happy, new beginnings!  And now, please enjoy my happy dance. (I agree, it could use some work).

P.S.  Watching this, I’m having a Hermione Granger moment thinking “huh, is that really what my hair looks like from behind?”  Ugh. 

We’re moving! (kind of)

“There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.” 
– Alan Cohen

I’m a southern California girl and there’s no way I could ever live anywhere else. In fact, Mumbles and I feel pretty restricted into northern OC territory where we’ve decided a la goldilocks and the three bears that the temperature is just right – hot enough to be warm, breezy enough to open up the windows and eat outside, and not so cold at night like it gets at the beach. Plus, our family and friends are here and close by and we like to live where we play.  Play and living aside, there’s also work to consider and all the hard work Mumbles and his business partners have put in these past few years are really showing in the strength of their company, a growing employee workforce and more clients and work to do. All of this which brings us to Virginia.

Virginia is a big, important state for the company, Quest (very fitting, yes?), and so we’ll be heading there for a few months to set up shop on the easy coast. (!)  I put in my notice at work (!) and we’ll be leaving soon. (!) Real soon. But to all my SoCal friends, not to fret! We’ll be back every few weeks as this 2012 seems to be the Year of the Wedding and plus, BFOTBM’s little baby Harper is set to make her arrival here sometime late next month (shower details and photos to come soon…promise!) and I just can’t wait to snuggle with her when she graces us with her presence. It’s an exciting time for us and what an adventure it will be. I’m sad to be leaving the work that I’m doing–because I’m not sure if it’s the same for you but I feel my identity is quite entwined with the work that I do–but I’m eager to experience all that awaits and share it with you here on the blog. Thanks, as always, for reading and for your support and encouragement.

Cheers to new adventures!
