Good things

Hi there!

For some reason it feels like it's been a long time since I posted, then I checked today and it's really only been two weeks. Which as the non-committal blogger I am, isn't really all that long of a break. This last month has gone by fast but has also been extremely packed thanks to some big news - I got a new job! To say I'm excited would be an understatement...as most of you all know the desire for a new job has been great and has been a long-time coming. So between wrapping up my old job as best as I possibly could and making one last trip to California, it's been a crazy time over here.

But...here I am with a whole week off before I start the new job, just in time for our Anniversary (#4!), and will be on vacation with Ty starting tomorrow. We're vacationing at a little B&B that's actually a working ranch right outside of Round Top, Texas so we can spend a few days at the semi-annual antique fair that's in town. Seriously, the Round Top Antique show is amazing. We went one day last year but definitely needed a full weekend, so I can't wait to really see everything. I'll be sure to do a full recap when we're back - they have another show in the fall and hopefully it will entice a few of you to come out and join me???

So the new job - I'm guessing you want details? I start April 4th as the Chief Development Officer for the Arbor School in Houston which is a private school that provides education and therapy to children with special needs. I really can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about the work they're doing - the stories and breakthroughs they're having with these kids are just incredible! The school recently brought on a very well known name in the child development/education world (Dr. Charles Meisgeier), and they have plans for a state-of-the-art campus to be built...it will be my job to see that we build up the school's brand, influence, reach (and budget!) both nationally and locally to make sure we see that campus built so we can offer education to more students, plus a whole slew of other things...there's lots of work in my future, but I'm really excited for the challenge of it all!

Okay, so that's the scoop! This is a long post sans pictures so I hope you'll forgive me, I promise to make up for it when we return from vacation:) Talk to you all in a few weeks!
