In my last post I talked a little about my jobs here in Baton Rouge, that transition, and how I was coping with the balance. It's pretty funny to come back to this space after a summer of unplanned circumstances and read in my last post where I talk about slowing down. Things actually sped up pretty suddenly at the end of May. We had a terrible loss hit our family (Tim's side) not two weeks after that post. I touched on it a little with an update on Instagram, but that's why I haven't really been able to come back here. What I write and focus on with this blog didn't seem important and for a while I lost the energy to jump back in.
But in the middle of the summer, I was offered a position in New Orleans. A dream opportunity for me and an adventure for us. So next stop - NOLA. My first day was today and it was fantastic. I'm so thankful for the experiences we've had over the summer, the good and bad, the food we ate, the people who love us and the opportunity to be there for best friends going through the very worst. This space helps me reflect on life around me and I hope these bits help you too.
Here are some happy times during the summer:
Stay tuned for new posts twice a week and follow @theprettysouth on instagram for snaps of our new life in the city.
