A New Year, New Beginnings.

Well it has been well over a year since I last wrote on this blog. I dont like new year resolutions but have decided to make a conscious effort at changing a few things in my life this year. The first will be to blog/write more. I use to LOVE writing everything that came to my mind and over the past few years I have lost interest in writing for some reason. It's a great way to vent, i think. So i am hoping this "resolution" will help me de-stressify my life :)

Kenan and i just had our second Christmas being married. I am so in love with him and love growing closer and closer to him every day. I LOVE my little home. It has been a HUGE process but i am so very happy with the outcome of it!!!!! I'll post a few pics later of the before&afters. About a month ago I was given the opportunity to move up in my retail career and i jumped right in when the chance was given to me again. I had been looking for a jobin Interior Design, but there is NOTHING in Utah :/ I had a part time job at a local "home decor" store, but felt that my abilities as a designer were not being used at all. I was working part time there and still full time manager in retail as well. When the opportunity of becoming a store manager for my retail company came about, after praying lots, i decided to accept the position and get my own store. Surprisingly it has been pretty easy (despite a few issues with some of my employees) to run my own sotre. I have so much to learn still about everything and i am happy i got the chance to move up. My long term goal for this company is to continue moving up the chain until I reach the position as a Visual Director, helping design new stores and being in charge of all the visual aspects of our company. Kenan is very excited for that future goal as well, because that means moving to Burbanks, Cali. bring on the sunshine!! Well, I have hours more of writing i could do right now, but if i dont stop now, i will be late for work!! :)
