The difference a year can make

It's crazy to think it's almost been a year since my last blog post. Similar to my actual life I felt the blog needed a new look, which hope you enjoy. So I'd like to reintroduce you to, "Everyday Thoughts," thank you for your patience. I invite you on this crazy journey I call life and I hope you enjoy it. I promise to write about things that I find interesting. I won't write everyday, but I'll try to post often enough to keep your attention. I promise to be honest and forthright and I hope you enjoy what I have to say.

Before jumping into posts about food, fashion, or long-distance friendships I think I should catch you up on all the changes that have taken place in the past year.

A year ago today I was 76 days away from meeting the man of my dreams at the end of aisle and saying "I do." I was working as an Account Coordinator at a great advertising agency in Memphis, TN and I had absolutely no idea all of the exciting changes that laid ahead of me.

Today I've been happily married for nine and half months. I still work in advertising but I'm an Account Executive at one of the largest (and best) ad agencies in the United States (maybe the world) and it's based in Atlanta, GA. My husband and I relocated after less than a month of marriage. Both of us have new jobs, in a new city and we're living in a great apartment that we call home...for now at least.

I'm learning my way around a city that's six times larger than Memphis and I'm starting to meet some new and interesting people; a task that is much harder when you're married and no longer in college. I changed my hair color so that it's dark red, and in less than 20 days I'll walk down the aisle again, to stand by my sister's side as she gets to experience the same joy of committing to her soul mate that I did less than a year ago.

It's inspiring and humbling to look back and reflect on where I've been. I've been blessed to extend my family, my circle of friends and my faith. I look forward to all the adventures that lay before me and I hope you stay with me for the ride.

Thanks for reading.
