Life Change | New Job


Be prepared for the longest post ever...

 I started this blog right after Doug and I got engaged.   A week after we got engaged we bought our little house. It was so far from what I had ever imagined as my "dream home".  I had just started working and Doug had just finished law school. I remember feeling like I should be so excited but, I just looked at our house and felt a sense of depression. Butter cream walls, butter cream carpet and a kitchen from the 1950's. I decided at that moment that I was going to make the very most of what I had. I started this blog to vent my frustrations and document the progress as I SLOWLY made our house into a home. Somewhere along the way I became a little kooky and consumed with all things design. 

Sometime over the past year I became very unhappy with my current job. I took the first job I interviewed for straight out of college. At the time, it seemed like it was perfect for my life plan. Work 2 years and go back to school to get my Masters in Social Work.  Along the way plans changed. I would like to say I am generally a really happy person. I really like my husband, I have the best friends in the world and I talk to my Mom everyday.  I realized that a huge chunk of my puzzle was missing. I hated my job.  It had nothing to do with the actual job, it was more me. I felt stuck. Everyone else was on their 2nd and 3rd jobs, being promoted, chasing dreams and I was stuck in the same place I had been for 5 years.  I started out the year dead set on getting out of my current situation and I was going to do something I love.


I finally put in my resignation last week. Tomorrow is my last day. I am so sad to leave my coworkers but it is time to move forward.  I took a job with JR Huntley Homes. We were lucky enough to work with him on our kitchen renovation and had the best experience. I am so excited to learn more about what I love, share some projects and hopefully even work with some of yall.
