LifeIn March I was offered a promotion and transfer to Tampa to begin working with Lilly Pulitzer full time. Working for Lilly really is the #LillyDreamJob they write about on social media, and I couldn't be happier continuing my career in Tampa. The city is so young, fun, and close to the water...which is the way to my heart! It's impossible to be bored here, and it felt great to start fresh in a new city.
I am also so so lucky to get to work with the group of women I work with. They welcomed me instantly into their Lilly family, and have made the transition so easy! They went from coworkers to friends, and make going to work everyday something I look forward to. They also initiated me into Tampa life by getting me to try 2 happy hours in one night...it was very successful until I tried to function the next morning! I think this is what happens after you turn 26...
Loveinstagram you have probably seen a hunky new face popping up over the last few months! At the end of May I happened upon the sweetest, most thoughtful man who almost instantly turned into my best friend, boyfriend, and love. As luck would have it he grew up in Syracuse, NY, just like me! It's funny how the world works sometimes. :) Unlike myself, he hates all social media (except I turned him into a pro at snapchat...we've been on fire for 86 days and counting...impressive, I know!) and would happily live without anyone knowing any details of his life. Why he dates a chronic oversharer, I will never know! So, I'm going to wait until he loves me a little more before sweet talking him into coming on the blog, but I have a feeling you'll be hearing lots more about him. Meeting him was like meeting the best friend I'd been waiting for. I frequently yell at him for not finding me in Syracuse when we were in high school! Still, better late than never. ;)
All in all my life has revolved around work, Nelly, and exploring Tampa with Kyle! We have so much to look forward to in the upcoming months and I can't wait to be back sharing it here. Life is really getting good. :)
