Anna and Chett's Wedding

I am really struggling to get blogs posted in a timely manner.  Last week, I was in Charlotte for work, and this week has been packed with long hours and constant learning.  Being new in a workplace is always an adjustment.  I am so happy my new work peers are being patient and helpful as I learn the ins and outs of their industry.

In the midst of all of this chaos, it was nice to travel to Charleston for the wedding of my friends Anna and Chett.  I witnessed the happy couple say their "I do's" with some of my closest friends.  As a new Nashville resident, I have found myself struggling with the reality that I am no longer a car ride away from my East Coast buddies.  That made this trip even more meaningful.

Baby Elle even came! She's almost 13 pounds now!

Grand Ole Opry

Last week marked 2 years since Will and I met.  To commemorate this event and my first full week in Nashville, Will surprised me with tickets to The Opry.  Only the best of the best get invited to perform at the Opry, so I was beyond happy when I heard the night's lineup included Brad Paisley, Allison Krauss, Luke Bryan, and Charlie Daniels.  

Finishing up the night was Canaan Smith who will be touring with Sugarland this summer.  For those who have not heard his beyond amazing voice, here you go.  He's awesome! He WILL have more than 1 song on iTunes soon, I guarantee it.  Enjoy!

I'm Back

It's been a month since my last post, and, my break from the blogging world was missed, but needed.  In 30 days, I moved out of my apartment in Raleigh and into an apartment in Nashville, and started a new job. 

 Leaving was difficult, but my work family made my last day a memorable and meaningful one, complete with gifts and bowling. 


I was especially touched when they presented me with the exact Pamela Hanson photo I had pointed out at dinner in Raleigh nearly a year ago.  My co-workers contacted the owner of the restaurant, and in an incredible gesture of kindness, he gifted the framed work to me. 

I finally got cable and internet this weekend and am continuing to get settled in the new place.  Each day my one bedroom rental feels more like a home and I can't wait to share all of my new adventures.
