New Job :)

I'm really, really enjoying my new life here in Tennessee.  I can't even begin to describe it.

I love my new apartment.  The decor is starting to come together, with some sort of consistency.  It's the perfect size for me, a great complex with convenient amenities, and an unbeatable location close to work, shopping, downtown Franklin, and not too far from Nashville.  Plus, my old feline buddy Cally is here now.  :)

I love this town.  There's plenty to do in the area, more restaurants than I could ever visit, better shopping than I'm used to, and just so many options.  Tonight I met my friend VB for dinner at BrickTop's; I think we'll be having post-dinner meals together fairly frequently!  :)

As for the job?  I love working in consumer goods.  My job is within the marketing & sales realm, and it couldn't be a better fit for me.  I just hope I do it well!!!  While it was an adjustment having to decide what to wear to work every day, it's been so exciting just to show up.  The day just flies by, in the best way.  Since everything is so new, it's like drinking from a fire hose... but I feel like a real career woman for the first time in my life.  It's learning a new language, but every time I get it right, I feel so good.  And I can't say enough good things about the people I work with; I've even met a few alumni from my college that are looking out for me, on top of the great team I'm assigned to.

I really see an opportunity to grow as a professional as a person where I am right now.

Obviously, since I care so much about my career, you won't be seeing much of it here on the blog... in fact, unless we're Facebook/LinkedIn friends (i.e. real-life friends) you won't even know where I work, even if you follow me on Twitter and Instagram.  I just think it's better that way.

P.S.  If I had to depict how I feel right now, this would be it:
