I've been thinking a lot about the last couple of months. They have gone by so fast, and so much has happened. A little reflection sometimes helps slow things down.
I got married in August. It was an amazing day - an amazing week! I had so many family members travel from England to be with us for parties, a Brewer game, reheresal, the wedding, and gift opening. It meant so much to us that we had all of our friends and family there. Then there's the part where I got to marry my best friend. I'm getting to relive it again lately, since our photos and wedding video are coming back to us. I will always have such an incredible memory of that day, and of how blissful it was. And of course our weeklong honeymoon in Mexico was equally blissful :) How can it not be when someone is constantly re-filling your mojito?
I changed jobs in November. This was something that truly blindsided me. I loved working at WISC-TV - the people were like family, and the job was fulfiling. I was contacted on LinkedIn about a potential opportunity at a company in Madison called Shoutlet. I knew they were a social media company, which has been a passion of mine for the past couple of years (it's so interesting how it has affected not only marketing, but life in general). I didn't want to deny myself anything, so I listened. And soon found out that I would really love this job. And so I started at Shoutlet as an Account Manager, helping clients with our technology and with their social media strategy. The first couple of weeks were a large learning curve, but I really love my job, and the people I work with. I am grateful that Eric and Lindsay found me on LinkedIn. Where would we be without Social Media?!
Tim and I took an amazing trip to South America over New Years. It was such a cool trip, and the fact that we were able to travel so close to our honeymoon makes me feel very spoiled.
Finally, Tim was promoted to Supervisor at work...on second shift. It is difficult working opposite shifts as a couple, but I know we can do it. I know that this schdule will test our young married relationship, but I know we will pull through. This is such an incredible opportunity for him in his career, and when he comes home from work, he's HAPPY. And that's all I can wish for.
The past six months have been pretty crazy. But I guess that's life. And I'm looking forward to the next six months, come what may.
