  • My parents came to visit & you guessed it, we went to a baseball game!!IMG_1369IMG_1370
  • Drew happened to have a Monday off from work, when I was home as well, so we took the opportunity to go hiking at Crowder’s Mountain

 

  • Drew and I got to go to the Coca-Cola 500 Race in Charlotte and thanks to some of his nice co-workers we were able to use hot passes during the race and go behind pit row!

June 2016

Knoxville, TN – June 4th

 

Cape May, NJ – June 11th-16th

As always, I literally have the best week ever with my family in Cape May! It was a smaller group this year, but hopefully next year, they’ll be able to join us again! ❤

 

Lincoln, NE – June 18th

Evansville, IN – June 25th

Other things I’ve done this month:

  • Saw my puppy and my friends before going to the beach

     

  • Drew grew a mustache because he lost a bet…technically this isn’t something “I” did this month, but it definitely had an impact on me 😂

  • Drew and I went on a day-date to see Finding Dory, buy a new pillow and then ended the day with a walk at Freedom Park
  • Drew and I went to see a friend of mine from High School play in a baseball game for the Columbia Fireflies
  • My company had our half-year outing at a Charlotte Knights game.  It ended up getting rained out, but we still had a really great time!

 

So that’s my recap, hopefully I’ll be able to keep up with it better in the future 🙂

THE big move

charlotte

It is officially official! In just one short week, I will be moving to Charlotte, NC! As most of you know, Drew moved there back in February for a job with the Charlotte Knights, and in October was hired on full-time as their Assistant Director of Video Production.

Since graduation, I have been working at David’s Bridal here in Harrisburg, still looking for a full-time job in event coordination.  At the beginning of the summer, I went on a few interviews here and there.  Nothing worked out but I know I am able to come to terms that that’s how it was supposed to happen.  Later in the summer, I began looking more towards the long-term.  Drew and I talked a lot about staying in Charlotte or coming home, or moving to a different city, but one thing we knew for sure is that we wanted to be together.  Since he was hired on full-time, I began to search for jobs in Charlotte more seriously.  There are endless opportunities down there (much more than Central PA has to offer) and that’s a really exciting thing for me as a 23-year old.  The city of Charlotte is absolutely beautiful and there are constantly events and things happening around the city to experience .  I’ve only been there twice, but I’m so excited to call it my future home.

For the time being, I will be transferring stores to a local David’s Bridal in Charlotte.  I struggled with this for a while, because I really wanted to have a full-time job lined up, but it just wasn’t happening.  I realized I needed to just take the leap and go down there so I can interview in person and make connections in Charlotte.  I have been in contact with a few people who want to meet up once I get settled, so that is always something to look forward to!

I am really excited to see what a new jobs, friends, and a new city will bring in 2016!
