I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

Mine was fun and very productive. Although, I did a 10 mile run in the brutal DC heat we had on Sunday that put me out of commission for most of Sunday and Monday. I haven't done a run that tough in a really long fact, I think it might have been the hardest run I've ever done.

Now that I'm recovered though, it's time to get back at it and get stuff done. This week is all about deep cleaning our apartment and organizing all of our wedding stuff so that it's good to go next week.

The good thing is, I'm off until after the wedding, so I can really just relax leading up to and after our big day. This is all part of where my blogging silence came in to play.

About two weeks ago, I found out that the organization I worked for was undergoing some significant changes and my department was being eliminated. When I found out that I had less than two weeks left at my job...three weeks before our wedding, just about everything (wedding planning, marathon training, blogging, etc.) took a backseat.

I'm happy to say that on Thursday, I officially accepted an offer, one that I think I'll love just as much as I loved my last one, and one that I think will be very, very good for me, professionally.

Deep down, I knew that this would turn out to be a blessing in disguise, and it has, but those two weeks were so, so trying. I won't start my new job until after the wedding, which is really exciting. As much as I feel like I now have all the time in the world, I really only have about two weeks. I plan to take that time to finish everything up and just enjoy DC before we tie the knot!

So, there you have it. I've got a lot of really good things coming my way and it's going to be an awesome ride.

As for today though, I've got a friend in town and I'm going to go play tourist!

Until next time!


  1. I'm sure it was a shock, getting laid off right before the wedding. I'm so glad you found a new job already and actually get to enjoy the next few weeks. And since we finally have a summer, I'm sure you are having a blast!

  2. Oh wow!! That's so sad that you had to leave your last job--I know you loved it. But it sounds like this new opportunity is going to be great, and thank goodness you found it so soon! I hope you can enjoy these next 2 weeks, even though they will be crazy. And Sept. 13th will be worth it all :) Have fun being tourist!

  3. So glad things are working out for you...Im sure it was stressful and scary not having a job, but glad good things came along quickly. SUPER awesome that you're off until the wedding!!

  4. Glad it worked out. Relax and enjoy your time now.

  5. Wow, that's awesome that you were able to find another position so quickly! Good luck with everything you have going for you this month!! :)
