My last 7 months...According to my iPhone

  It's a little hard to sum up 6-7 months in one post...unless you're like me and your social life has pretty much consisted of your puppy and a glass of wine for the majority of the last year!  Still, a lot has changed since I last blogged, so I thought a little tour through my iphone would be a good way to catch up!
In 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.

My townhouse is just a few miles away from the Causeway that connects Tampa to Clearwater, and it has a walkway right along the bay.  It makes for gorgeous sunset walks with Miss P!  She prefers to sniff every blade of grass along the way, but for me the view never gets old.


It has been so great working working at the Tampa store in International Plaza.  The store has a higher volume than my store in Sarasota, and I have learned so much about the company and truly love my job.  Working at Lilly is like one constant party! Most retail workers dread the holidays, but I can't wait.  The hustle and bustle of a crazy busy store gets me so pumped up!

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 was very successful until I tried to function the next morning! I think this is what happens after you turn 26...

If you follow me on instagram 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. :)

  10. How To Get Your Lost Husband Back

    “LOVE is the key to LIFE”. That was the word from Dr Ukaka when I consulted his powerful Love Temple. I married the wrong man; I realized that after four years of our unfruitful marriage. Everything was going from Best to Worst in our life, no child, I got demoted from work after our marriage, my husband was sacked a year after. His application for new job in various offices was constantly declined even though he was qualified enough. I was made to take care of my family with the low income I earn get that wasn’t enough to pay our rent. We keep praying a seeking for help from some people, my friends laugh at me behind because I was advised not to get married yet.It was one Thursday night that my husband woke me up and told me that has thought enough about our crisis, he said that our crisis is not ordinary and it’s beyond our spiritual level. He suggested we should consult Dr Ukaka from testimonies he showed me online about how he has been helping families. I was afraid, I don’t like evil or spell but I supported him to contact him if he can help us. We consulted him via and he replied positively after 20munites with congratulating email that he can help us but he will need our pure heart and trusts in his work if he will cast the spell on us and purify our life. We agreed to his terms. He cast the spell and told us to expect results within 5days. I waited for three days nothing happened, so I started having doubt and blaming my husband for emailing Dr Ukaka. It was on the fifth day that my husband was called for an interview and he got a well-paying work, I was prompted to a higher position. I missed my period on the 5th day and it was confirmed that I am with a baby. Things have really changed for us for good and we now have our own house and cars. I will never forget what Dr Ukaka told us “LOVE is the key to LIFE”, this word keep me going. People that laughed at us are coming close for help and I am delighted to welcome them because my family is now blessed. Dr Ukaka is a savior and man that keep to his word even when I doubted his powers at the end of the spell. Thank you great Dr Ukaka and your Oracle for helping us via and I will keep spreading this message to people in need of help. also contact him for address: ;

  11. so glad your back! Sounds like you found a great guy!
