{new job} say hello to...

the newest Event Planner!

I have been dying to write this post, but I didn't want to jinx anything.

Right after the new year I interviewed for a position to be the Event Coordinator/Planner for the housing company at the Navy Base. In what ended up being the best interview I have ever done I got the job on the spot! {it is so true when they say you are your best when you are yourself. I didn't stress about the interview, i didn't practice what to say. I just went into the meeting with my head held high, ready to share my values, work ethic and desire to work with military families.}

I cannot tell you how exciting this new position is.  I have dreamed of a job like this for as long as I can remember. I get to go to work each day and plan events, fun events, all with my own ideas. I'm not the marketing assistant, it is all me! In fact my boss will be over 3 hours away.

What is even more exciting is this is exactly the type of job I was hoping to get one day far in the future, but instead it happened in 2011! The experience in this position will help me to develop the skills I need to run my own business as an event planner.  Scott and I want to start a family and I don't want to send our babies to daycare, but I also know I would go crazy being at home.  It is my dream to be able to work from home and have my own event planning/consulting business. This the step in that direction.  God is so good. He is always leading us in the right direction, sometimes well before we think he will.

{this would be a fab home office!}
